When I first had my stroke, and for a long time after, it was hard to turn my head to the left or right. It made me really dizzy and it would take a few minutes to adjust to looking to the side. So if I did it, I didn’t want to look straight ahead again because the same thing would happen. I know every effect from a stroke is different but I think this might be the same for everyone that has just had a huge insult to the brain. I remember being wheeled to the therapy room (I was the youngest by way) and everyone was sitting in a wheelchair staring straight ahead. We were like zombies. It was terrible, awful, horrible. But that’s not a problem at all anymore. Looking to the right or left is OK now. Tilting my head, that’s another story, but turning it to either side is no big deal. If I could walk then I’d have made a good zombie in that thing they do when they make a parade of zombies.
