In the months since my stroke, I’ve gone from someone who thought it only affected older people, to realising it can strike anyone at all. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, rich or poor, male or female, black or white, fat or thin.
It has been a real eye opener that I’m sure is lost on a great number of people (as it was on me).
There is no real point to this post, it is just an observation. However, I have found this forum (and the other work done by the stroke association) has helped me tremendously for which I am so grateful.
You, Ladies & Gents (on the forum) are a huge part of why it works so well. The feeling of togetherness and a shared experience makes your words so much more meaningful and I want to thank you for helping me along my road to recovery .
I’ll stop gushing now, but remember, we are all in this together!
All the best.
