I had a very interesting experience yesterday. I had dinner with a friend that had a stroke a year and a half ago. For the first time since my stroke, I was the one sitting at a table in a restaurant as the “not sick” one. Scratch that, “less sick” one. I was the one who was able to give her some information, help her with some stuff. It was weird. After we ate her parents sat down with us for a couple of hours and asked me questions. That’s absolutely wonderful. The absolute #1, most loving, caring thing you can do as a caregiver for someone you love that is sick is get information and learn as much as you can about how to get that person back to their life. Was this done for me? No it was not. In fact, the opposite happened to me. I was made fun of and laughed at for some things I wanted to try that ended up helping me tremendously. So you have no excuse, cause I know it’s overwhelming as hell. But, if you are reading this and someone you love gets really sick and you actually want them to get better and back to their life, you know what to do. I just told you. Find someone who has been through it that has made a good recovery and ask them a ton of questions about what they have been through and what they have done to overcome it. In the last 2.5 years, I’M the one who did a ton of research, I’M the one who learned a bunch of shit, I’M the one who read everything under the sun. No one did it for me. It was all ME, ME, ME. And don’t think that just talking to all of the doctors and blindly following the advice of Western Medicine is the right thing to do, it’s not. That actually might be one of the worst things that you can do.
