Empathetic , Honest , Strokewise
I won the Stroke Lottery on 26th March 2012 - all the numbers came up..!!
I am now living a post-strike life where I try to take the positives forward with me, consequently I been down roads I would never have considered travelling pre-strike.. Most significant has been understanding the emotional effects of my Stroke, on myself and those who care about and for me..
I am a Stroke Survivor with significant positive experience to share with other sufferers and those around them..
This is woefully neglected at the early stages of post strike care..
All these people have emotions too, that are deeply effected by seeing someone they love suffering from the immediate and after effects of Stroke..
I can use my own experiences to help others who are battling the physical and emotional effects of Stroke.. This may be as simple as signposting people to support they were not aware of.. The emotional effect of Stroke on all parties is woefully neglected as we all concentrate on the very visible physical effects of Stroke.. Emotions become buried by all parties as we put on our brave faces and pander to our in-built desire not to be a burden to anyone..
