Help Bob In His Stroke Recovery Journey

Hello! I sincerely hope you are all well.

My name is Bob and until May this year, I was actually a practising acupuncturist who was helping folks feel well and better.. Unfortunately in late May of 2022, I suffered a sudden stroke that totally paralysed the right half of my body and slurred my speech. The irony of May being Stroke Awareness Month was not lost on me.

A stroke, sometimes called a brain attack, occurs when something blocks blood supply to part of the brain or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts. In either case, parts of the brain become damaged or die. A stroke can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death.

I was quite fortunate to have caught the symptoms early enough to survive but it was an extremely traumatic experience. A huge part of my self worth and identity comes from my communication skills and I suddenly lost the ability to write and speak coherently overnight.

And after my discharge from hospital I suddenly found myself bundled into a nursing home where I spent the next six weeks with only assisted living care but no facilities to support recovery (not even bars in the bathroom!) The only saving grace was that it was relatively cheap and a stone’s throw away from the Petaling Jaya chapter of the National Stroke Association (NASAM) where I had my physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions.

With no health insurance, I have relied on the goodwill of family and friends to help fund my recovery and have relatively quick progress with me starting to walk with some aid one month after my stroke. My speech is also slurring much less.

My relatively rapid recovery has been due, I believe, to a combination of timely conventional medicine, physical and occupational therapy as well as complementary therapies like acupuncture, Reiki and RTT hypnotherapy. I probably won’t be able to afford all these if some like the physical therapy and hypnotherapy were not sponsored by well wishers.

Unfortunately I am running short of funds as I enter into this new phase of recovery. I am eagerly heading down the road to recovery and hope to regain my ability to go back to work in helping others, with the benefit of personal experience.

Thank you again you your support.

With genuine love, warmth and affection,

Bob Kee



不幸的是,在 2022 年 5 月下旬,我突然中风,右半身完全瘫痪,说话含糊不清。




出院后,我突然发现自己被捆绑在疗养院里,在接下来的六周里,我只有辅助生活护理,但没有支持康复的设施(甚至浴室里的铁棍都没有!)唯一的可取之处是它是相对便宜,而且距离国家中风协会 (NASAM) 的八打灵市分会只有一箭之遥,在那里我进行了物理治疗和职业治疗。


我相对较快的恢复归功于及时的传统医学、物理和职业疗法以及针灸、灵气和 RTT 催眠疗法等补充疗法的结合。如果像物理疗法和催眠疗法之类的不是由好心人赞助,我可能无法负担所有这些。
