There’s this guy, his name is Dean. He’s pretty famous in the stroke survivor community. He’s done an incredible amount of research about stroke recovery. I have a link to his site over on the left there. He has this one post called “what my doctors should’ve told me.” You can read it here. I 100% agree with everything he says. Learn as much as you can about what happened to you or a loved one. Learn the anatomy of the brain, then learn what artery/arteries was/were involved in your stroke and what area of the brain is damaged. Learn what that area of the brain controls. Learn about strokes and what caused yours, a blood clot or a bleed. I know personally it’s pretty annoying to talk to someone who has absolutely no idea what they’re talking about, especially people that haven’t taken the time to learn more. The more you know the better you can talk intelligently about your condition to doctors and others. As with anything else, the more you know the better.
