Hello my name is Simone. I am excited and nervous to have this resource. My husband found it for me over a year ago.
I have read many post and feel comfort knowing that I am not alone in my struggles and victories.


In  2016 I had a Hemorrhagic stroke due to postpartum preeclampsia. The bleeding was in my right Occipital lobe and affected my vision.

Recovery has been hard and I am not who I was prior to my stroke, but thankful to be here with a new sense and perspective in life.


 Flash forward to 2020 I am pregnant again and very nervous. I will try to post, when I have time and courage. I am hoping that my stories can help someone or maybe get advice as well. Thank you for reading my about me 😊
