Can you survive after a brain stroke? My mom just had it, she is in the hospital now

OK, so she felt bad 3 days ago, but waited till today to see a doc. They put her immediately in a hospital now, they examine her now and give her meds… Its a brain stroke, a brain infarctus in fact i think…
I made a total paranoid crisis around my nephew, who overwhelms me not by his fault, but because of my delusions and i cant even go outside now… I went outside in front of my building and i was feeling like everyone could say, that i am a sz and that theyll hate me… Its hard tbh… I came back, but it sucks, i wanted to see my mother… I can do it tomorrow, but probably my family will never understand that i cant even visit now…
I tell to myself, that if she was alive when this hit her 3 days ago, she can do it now with the help of the docs, isnt it? :thinking: gosh…
Somebody who got through a brain stroke?
anyway, i wont bother you more, my mom accepts me, but i know, that she doesnt like what i do tbh…

I had that in 2019 along with a pulmonary embolism and am left with only minor impairments. I was fortunate that I recognized the symptoms when they hit and had a co-worker take me to the hospital immediately. They pumped me full of anti-clotting drugs and those busted up the majority of the blockages.

It took a while to get back to normal. I couldn’t see faces for the first week and it was about a month before I could tell faces apart once I could see them again. My language processing is still a bit funky.

Thanks for the answer! Yeap, i hope, that they’ll help her…
Tbh, i was now with my nephew, while my mom was my main support and he is less patient and less reassuring and i only see how sick i am too… :cold_sweat:
My pdocs say, that the zyprexa can help my case in years in fact, not as the others, cause my case is harder, but its just very hard… I also feel as a sinner, my paranoia can get so shitty and disabling still, that i cant even go out etc etc…
anyway, will prey then for my ma and me. Maybe i will really feel better one day, i take my meds religiously…

Thank you, dear :slight_smile: I dont forget you too heh :slight_smile:

Brain stroke severity depends on the brain regions affected and the length of time these regions are deprived of blood and oxygen. Some brain parts are deadly like the brainstem.

Thank you Aziz :people_hugging:
Idk, i just saw today around my nephew how sick i am… The others will never reassure me as my mother maybe, idk… :frowning:
I now have the reaction to sleep, why do i have this reaction lol? But yeap, since years, in my head in general theres only paranoid, apocalyptic thinking, thinking only about how bad the things can go wrong… Idk why i ended up obsessing about problems only, does somebody understands this here?
take care you all!
