"I just didn't care."
Larry was the CEO of three companies in New York when he suffered his first stroke. Following another two strokes his biggest decision of the day was whether he would go out for a coffee.
He said, "I just didn't care"!
Those who have survived a stroke often have a tremendous sense of loss of identity, purpose and meaning. But their carers also suffer the same sense of loss and loneliness.
"I don't matter anymore."
Brenda, Larry's primary carer was suffering frustration, anger, and confusion. She felt that she had lost who she was. She didn't have a life.
For a time, Brenda had indeed lost herself in her role of full-time carers for her husband Larry.
But that was 12 months ago. Watch the video below to see how they're going a year later.
