May is National Stroke Awareness Month. 



Let me tell you a secret. I am a stroke survivor. Itís been more than ten years since my life changed in the blink of an eye. My recovery took years. However I consider myself fortunate because I fought my way back. Now I want to help others with their stroke recovery. Thatís why I wrote and published the book, Stroke Recovery Stories.


The full title is, Stroke Recovery Stories: Humorous and Inspiring Stories Told By Stroke Survivors and the People Who Love Them. As you can see, this book was not entirely written by me. Other stroke survivors and a neurologist also write chapters in a very unique and inspiring book. 


David Ober, MD, Chief of Neurology at Nyack Hospital wrote the Special Introduction. He tells the reader what everyone involved with stroke needs to know from a medical point of view. You will have a much better understanding of stroke and recovery after reading this chapter.


Next, each chapter is written by a different stroke survivor. Some chapters are written by survivors telling their story while others are written by family and caretakers. Each has itís own unique flavor, lessons and inspiration.


The purpose of this book is to have the reader learn from others. Think of this book like a support session where everyone sitís in a room and gets a chance to tell their story and the lessons they learned in order to help others.


I am very impressed with each chapter and each survivorís story. Some made me laugh and others made me cry, but each taught me something new. This is important whether you are a stroke survivor, caretaker, family or friend.


Visit the American Stroke Association or the National Stroke Association for more information on stroke.


Stroke is something that happens to 750,000 Americanís every year. As large a number as that represents, itís actually much larger than that. If you include the family and friends of each survivor, you can see how millions of Americans are affected every year.


Plus since stroke recovery takes many years, there are tens of millions of Americans who are dealing with it today. And there are many more worldwide. Understanding stroke is important. It impacts so many. And there is still little in the way of real helpful information.


However the good news is stroke survivors can and do recover. They get back to work or change what they do going forward. It can be easier for a young stroke survivor to recover more fully.


The brain is really a miraculous blessing. Like a computer with a bad section on the hard drive, the brain can often re-write itís software to work around the dead spot. It just takes time and effort.


I lived through it. Itís terrible, but itís also truly amazing to watch the body and the brain heal. Stroke was an incredible ride. Donít get me wrong, I have been on this ride once and thatís enough. However what I have learned has changed me, for the better I hope!


So take a look at the free preview on Remember, stroke can happen to anyone at any time. And when it happens, it instantly changes your life. Donít believe me? I didnít believe it myself, until it happened to me that is.
