Different Strokes

Thank you to everyone who has shared their own personal stories of stroke and recovery, explaining how the stroke has impacted on them, their families and changed their lives. 

You may find it helpful and encouraging to read these stories, particularly if you have shared some of the experiences and are able to identify with emotions, feelings and issues raised.  Knowing that you are not alone and that other people are also rebuilding their lives after stroke can help to break down feelings of isolation.  It can also be useful to read about different coping strategies that other younger stroke survivors have used.

We are often told that writing the story can be difficult but can also be a very cathartic and positive process, as it can help in reaching acceptance about what has happened and so allow the author to move forward. 

If you would like to share your story, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . You can submit your story in writing, or as audio file or video.  You are welcome to include photos and also a contact email address if you would like the people who read your story to be able to get in touch.
