Paying It Forward

Stroke Connection offered me the opportunity to participate in the Guided Autobiography program. Now I am paying it forward by facilitating a writing group.

A stroke nearly took Mark Moore’s life, but his wife Brenda knew the questions to ask to get the care he needed. When Mark felt like giving up in recovery, Brenda knew exactly how to change his attitude.

“A stroke or TIA presents many lessons, which I chose to ignore the first time, but not the second.” Survivor Vernell Bradshaw shares his story and the secrets to his successful stroke survival.

A Mile in Her Own Shoes

I finished my first official mile in more than seven years. Seven years might be a long time without running a mile, but time didn’t matter to me. I was just happy to meet my goal. At 16, I had a hemorrhagic stroke from an AVM (arteriovenous malformation), leaving my left side weak.

It is no mystery that friends and family drift — they feel awkward because they see how hard it is for the survivor to communicate. They don’t want to aggravate him or her nor do they know how to help. For the most part, they don’t understand that aphasia is a language disorder, not a thinking or reasoning disorder. We are all so accustomed to speaking that people don’t naturally understand that intelligence and emotion are distinct from speech.
