After one lonely night of heavy drinking, I found myself in the hospital looking up from my bed at the bright lights above me. I also saw my family around me, but I realized that I couldn’t move my right arm or my right leg. I wasn’t sure about what was going on, but a doctor quickly came in and informed me that I had a stroke. All the years of drinking had finally taken a toll on my body, and I had a stroke when I passed out from being drunk, and it was a family member who found me and saved my life.
I was taken to a Nobilis Health facility that was near my home, and they saved my life. Not only did they save my life, but they gave me a plan to execute on how I was going to get back to normal. I mentioned to the doctor that I couldn’t feel anything on my right side, and he told me it was because of the stroke. Although I was very depressed, I was told that with some surgery as well as physical rehabilitation, I might be able to get back to normal. I was also informed that drinking was no longer a possibility.
I was determined to be myself again, but I wasn’t certain how to move forward. I spent days alone in the hospital crying over my predicament, but I would have a nurse come in once in a while, and they would comfort me in my pain. Even if I had family members come in, I still felt depressed. One of the Nobilis Health nurses saw me crying one day, and she came in and talked to me about my condition. She told me that her father had had the same type of stroke, and he had one side of his body stop working as well.
When I asked her what happened to her father, she actually pulled out her smartphone and showed me a video that was from days before of her father running in a marathon and enjoying his life. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, but the date on the phone proved the video was recent. The nurse gave me all the hope that I needed to look forward to the future, and hopefully I’ll be able to have a success story like her father. No matter what happens in the future, Nobilis Health has saved my life, and I’m grateful and shared it on insiderreport.
