I am trying this as a last resort and appealing for assistance. At the end of a thirty-seven-year marriage, I was left with heartbreak, financial ruin and an ex-husband who committed suicide leaving no provision for my future. I had to reinvent myself at sixty. I soon realised that I was in the minority and there was nothing out there for me so I took the bull by the horns and went to the UK where I trained and qualified as a Carer. A profession I really felt was made for me. I loved it and I eventually felt my life was taking shape. I could maintain myself for the next ten years at least. After my first two assignments, I awoke one morning on the floor and realised pretty quickly that I had had a stroke. This stroke has taken the ‘Old Eileen’ and I have been working now for a year to build a New Eileen.

It’s been a rocky road, but this stroke is not going to win. I have been incredibly lucky with my friends and family who have eased many of my symptoms and given emotional and financial support, but I now feel I’ve become a burden on all of them so I’m appealing for help to support me and assist with outstanding medical bills. There have been many negatives with this stroke, but there have also been many positives. I intend to keep a diary noting my progress and continue to give hope to people who find themselves in a similar.
