Different Strokes

Thank you to everyone who has agreed that we can feature their blog on our website.

By sharing their day-to-day experiences we hope that these blogs will inspire and encourage other younger stroke survivors in their recovery.  Finding out that other people are facing similar difficulties can help reduce feelings of isolation, and you might pick up some good tips and coping strategies.
