While the story of one survivor or caregiver can be extraordinarily moving and instructive, real life demands that you educate yourself in many classrooms. Because everyone and every stroke is different, I’ve gleaned perspective from hundreds of survivors and caregivers to bring you the information you need — information about the diverse realities of stroke.
In this easy-to-read book, I provide snippets of one experience, then another and yet another that you can piece together to help you understand how you can best cope with this complex puzzle called stroke.
Sure, there are physical challenges with stroke, but the emotional exercises can be just as brutal. Emotions are often overlooked because the world so often only understand the effects it can see.
We can’t see grief that comes with the loss of abilities, the destruction of life dreams and plans, disappearing friends and family and the unexpected changes that happen within the survivor and caregiver as they struggle with this brain attack.
We fear what we can’t see happening in the human brain -- when the survivor looks perfectly normal but behaves differently than he or she once did.
Stroke creates a whole new world for everyone touched by it. As a caregiver, you carry a great deal of responsibility in this constant whirlwind of emotions for maintaining a focus on love, compassion and empathy. It’s no wonder you need some help along the way.
Indulge in this book’s words of wisdom, advice and unique insights as you continue to adjust to your life as a caregiver. It’s primary message is simple: You are not alone. Period.
As you go through this journey, you’ll want this book by your side. Things may get really, really tough for you at times, but you can face the challenges with courage and dignity.
Your loved one has already survived their stroke, but now you face many challenges too. With the sensible, reasonable advice that I bring to you in this book, you can survive too. You have to. There’s someone very special depending on you.
