Imagine going to bed on Thursday, waking up on Friday, taking a bath to get ready for work, and having a stroke? Well that is what happened to me. I was semi-paralyzed on my right side but with a lot of faith and a lot of rehab and courage, I am healed. 

So for those people who are out there that have had a stroke, or know someone that has had one, there is hope. 

I think it was a blessing because it made me see how hard I was working. I had a wellness center in the back of my mind I wanted to open. The funny thing is I always had the space, so what was stopping me? I wasted so much time working on things for other people that I did not have time for my own dreams. That all changed in March. I had a stroke and it turned my life around, but for the good.

Now I am looking to do great things. I am going back on the radio and starting a support group for stroke survivors. I will open the wellness center and do some writing. 

So follow me as I journey (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/dr_doniagonzales) -Dr. Donia Gonzales-Copeland
