Some people say some pretty ignorant things to me sometimes. It makes me crazy but I tell myself that they don’t know any better. It’s going to take me years to recover and I might never be the same as I used to be and I might never be able to do the things I used to do. I just choose to be around certain people as little as possible. A stroke survivor can’t just “get over it” and any lack of progress you think you may see is definitely not because they’re not trying hard enough. So, if you choose to be around a stroke survivor, learn to say the right things. People with brain issues are already extremely frustrated, don’t make it worse. Be sensitive to them! This post sums up my feelings pretty well.
