I have just joined this community.
I had an eschmic stroke on 3 September 2011, although, since I didn't realize that it was a stroke, i went to the hospital on 5 September 2011.
My stroke has mostly affected my cognitive abilities, and I have some right-side weakness, and my right hand has decreased sensitivity. I have some mild aphasia, and speech therapy has helped me ALOT.
I have SSI/Disability, I can get a job, I just cannot keep a job for more that 2-3 weeks, if I do not mention my stroke. I cannot get a job if I tell employers that I have a stroke.
That is a quick version of my situation.

Thank you for allowing me to share this.
