What a scary experience

I’m currently writing to you from a hospital bed.

Friday morning i wasn’t feeling right, not poorly just a bit spaced out at times but thought nothing of it.

Then just before midnight on friday evening i was sat with my friend in my room and my vision started to go funny, i was staring almost like what happens before a seizure. My speech went slurred and within minutes my whole body was paralysed. An ambulance was called and there within 10 minutes.

I was so scared, i could hear everything but couldn’t open my eyes. It was like i was locked in my own body.

By 5am Saturday morning i could open my eyes,move my head, my mouth and my fingers. But i felt so helpless. I was being fed my breakfast and lunch. I wanted to just be able to do it myself.

At 4pm Saturday afternoon all that was paralysed was my right leg so i was able to move about in bed more freely.

However this morning i have been awake an hour and both legs are paralysed. This i am used to but i am petrified that the full body paralysis will happen again and what if I’m on my own?

I will be back regularly blogging when I’m back home having bed rest. I thought i would keep you all updated.

    Get well soon… a similar thing happened to my son a few years ago and he had a spinal stroke. Long story short.. after 3 weeks in hospital the paralysis was a vague memory. Be strong and heal up ❤
