Broken Pieces

10

Before, I used to be a whole, but now I feel crushed. I felt like a whole person before my stroke. After the stroke, I felt like my brain and heart were not working like they used to. Before the stroke, I used to feel like I was very smart. After stroke, I felt as if I was back to square one. I used to know 5 languages, now I only know one. I used to speak Guarani, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian. Now I only understand English. When I had a stroke, I felt like there was no more Jesus.

    Just when I think it’s gone, it reappears.

    Antes, solía ser un todo, pero ahora me siento aplastado. Me sentí como una persona completa antes de mi derrame cerebral. Después del derrame cerebral, sentí que mi cerebro y mi corazón no funcionaban como solían hacerlo. Antes del derrame cerental, solía sentir que era muy tranquilo,inteligente. Después de un Stroke, me sentí como si estuviera de vuelta a la casilla uno. Solía saber 5 idiomas, ahora solo conozco uno. Solía hablar guaraní, español, portugués, italiano. Ahora solo entiendo (apenas) inglés. Cuando tuve un derrame cerebral, sentí que no había más,Dios, Jesús.

    I love the picture and the post. It can be hard but just keep up your hard work. Think of the new perspective your experience has given you and not about what you lost.
