I really need to write a book. The author of the great Stronger After Stroke, is a Physical Therapist Assistant who has been researching nothing but strokes for I think like 20 years or something? Maybe that number’s wrong, I loaned my book out to Pat who actually wants to learn and try to understand the little slice of hell I go through on a day-to-day basis. I’m sure it says the length of time in there. 20 years is a hell of a lot more years of experience than I have dealing with this topic. But here’s my experience with stroke – I had one. Wait, no, hold on, I would have only had one stroke had the doctors done a GD thing for me but they didn’t so I ended up having 3 strokes. The damage to my brain being gigantic. And an a few MDs decided to do something in order to prevent death for me so that I could live out the rest of my life disabled. Thanks so much!!!!!
Dean, you wanna collaborate on a book with me? Seriously? I happen to think it would be the best book on stroke rehab/recovery in existence. But that’s just me. Peter Levine does not mention meditation in his book. A major portion of my book is going to be dedicated to meditation and its effects on the brain and body. I really, really don’t understand why meditative practices are not being used in hospitals and prescribed by neurologists. I don’t get it, but I don’t get a whole hell of a lot about this country.
