4 months after stroke help please

I have a cavernous hemangioma on my medulla. It's 12 mm in diameter. I suffered a brain bleed in may after the birth of my daughter. It has devastated me. I have suffered since then with HORRIBLE depression, HORRIBLE anxiety, and terrible neurological problems. My entire body is numb, just my skin like my sensation of touch has changed. I have picked up a nystagmus in my eyes that has left it difficult for me to see and drive and just ... function. My eyes never stop moving. I've had to take Ambien to help me sleep because I just can't rest because of it. My head feels like it's wiggling back and forth ... because it is. I don't know why but it feels like I don't have good control of my head and neck muscles. IT has been more difficult than I can tell you these past months. I have 3 small children and I honestly feel like I died the week my daughter was born. I haven't been right since. I feel like I can't reclaim myself because of the problems I still have. My question is, will it ever go away? I've been waiting every second of every day of the past 4 months to be better, to be normal. I can't take it anymore. I've had just about every other symptom associated with stroke on the brainstem except breathing and swallowing difficulties. I honestly feel like I don't have much lifetime left, and I cry all the harder for that because I am only 24. I am on antidepressants already, but it seems like everything is wrong with me and no med can help. can anyone help me?

Hi, Generally, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help you to regain function in better way and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services. For coordinated rehabilitation program a team of a neurologist, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist and a speech-language pathologist, a nutritionist work together to help you in your recovery. Therefore, I would suggest following the suggestion made by them and recovery will be although slow but most of the functions may be restored. In addition, it is essential to know that risk of stroke recurrence may be reduced such as by quitting smoking and controlling blood pressure. Hope this helps.
