New Book | Life After Stroke: On The Road To RecoveryAtlanta, GA, July 2, 2011 — So you’ve had a stroke. I understand what you are going through. I had one a few years ago. I know you are beginning to realize how different things will be for you. You are trying to wrap your arms around this sudden change in your life. You have a lot of questions.
The good news is this stroke also gives you a unique gift. You have a do-over. Yes a do-over. What will you do next?
I was a guest on a television show talking about the inspirational story of my stroke and recovery. The host asked me this very interesting question. He said, you have a do-over, so what are you going to do next?
As a telecom analyst I had done countless interviews with reporters over the last 20 years, however this was the most interesting question I had been asked in ages. What will I do next?
I didn’t have an answer, but it started me thinking and that put me on the right path once again. The stroke knocked me off that path several years ago. Now, for the first time in years, I am back.
Depression is normal after a stroke. However after you get through with your after-stroke-depression you have this same big question to answer too. You may not be able to “or want to” do the same thing you did before. However you still have to work. So what will you do next?
The stroke threw you off your horse. Recovery takes a while to get your mind sorted out. Then a while longer to deal with the depression, which is also natural. Then at some point a few years later we realize we have to take charge of our lives. We have to shake off the depression and start to build our lives once again.
Finally reaching that place is a wonderful experience. All of a sudden doors open. It’s like opening the shutters on the windows of your house and letting the fresh air and sunshine in. It’s incredible. You’ll see.
You just turned the page on the next chapter in your life. Once there, we are all in the same spot. We have a do-over.
Give serious though to the question, what are you going to do with the rest of your life? This is a pretty exciting question. It gets your skin twitching and your heart pumping again. It’s wonderful.
I wrote a new book called Life After Stroke: On The Road To Recovery, which tells my story and what I learned over seven years after my stroke. These lessons are important for you to understand for your recovery.
