16.09.13 I've just had a great swim and I mean great as I found myself swimming, as you know I had thought that I'd lost the ability to swim and float but I've kept trying well after two years I finally did it and by the end of the of the session I was managing about 10 mtr. Though very very slowly, I also managed to float quite a way but Louise had to rescue me as my legs wouldn't drop to the bottom which set my laughing off and made me swallow water.
I am very chuffed with this achievement so any one out there who is just setting off on their own post stoke journey Don't give up anything is possible.

I have become quite an activist since my stroke, demonstrating outside the ATOS offices in Norwich March 2014

Your post will be very careful for the elderly because the post tells about the stroke…
