My steps toward finally getting back into the work force after surviving a stroke and brain surgery last year.

I suffered a spinal stroke last year while driving home from work. A spinal stroke is basically when matter, in my case, a blood clot travels from spin to brain causing the actual stroke. Doctors said a sudden rise in my blood pressure could have and was likely the reason the blood clot from the back of my neck decided to move.

The job isn't for me

I just started a job last week. The hours are ok and so is the pay but as a stock person I have to go up and down high ladders. I find it very hard. I am 64 years old and it is getting harder for me. I hate to quit because I need a job but my body just is not that agile. I don't know what to do.
