My mind disappeared. When it came back, it was not the same…

I am back in Boston, where it is a balmy 7 Fahrenheit/-14 Celsius. I find that my body tenses up when I go out in weather like this. Do other stroke types notice this too?
The entry 'Boston Winter' is filed under Brain Deep, Social.
You can leave a response here.
The affected leg pretty much becomes a log that I swing to ambulate. If there is a moveable knee joint its locked up. The arm is constantly at attention across my waist
Yes. The left side of my head and neck tighten and tense terribly. I had a cerebellar stroke due to a left vertebral artery dissection.
Oh yes, my arm and leg tendez up with this cold weather.
I started wearing long johns and snow pants. I Also have grips under my boots for walking on icy sidewalks.
My neurologic damage is more distal (brachial plexus) and winters are always the hardest time for me. My damaged area tenses in response to the cold and pain ensues. Living in CA helps as does down!

I am a quirky young woman whose Mind went Pop. I was 26 when a stroke took away my limbs and speech.
This stroke comic book is designed to make you think. Mindpop. Strokes are hell. They have dark comedy too.
I live in Boston, Massachusetts.
