My name is Jo Wauchope. I had a very normal and happy life before my stroke but after my stroke I coped with it admirably.
I did not dwell with it but got on with my life. I have a housekeeper now, a Brazilian, who is lovely. She lives in Chelmsford at the weekends at her fiance's but comes to me Monday to Friday. She takes my son Cameron to school and back, does the food shopping, cooking and washing - I have another lady who irons, and another who does the cleaning.
These pages have been made by me dictating them to Becky. I find speaking much easier than writing. All the grammar and punctuation is mine - I used to be an English teacher! I have told my story in my own words.
