Welcome to all of my younger stroke survivor readers,
When a stroke happens o a younger person teens, twenties, thirties, forties and fifties it can present an extra layer of isolation. Survivors of those ages can feel very alone. Like they are the only person in the world to have this awful thing happen to them.
Actually, that is not the case and stroke does occur in younger persons.
Christa Orsino-Heck a younger stroke survivor has organized a way to reach out to other younger stroke survivors. She calls her organization Stroke Awareness And Support Association
This is a place where you can share your story on line with other young stroke survivors and reach out to learn about the experiences of others.
I hope that you find Christa's organization to be a place where you can connect with others your own age and through you connections learn more about yourself as well as the others of your own age who have suffered a similar attack and survived. I hope that through these connections you will receive as well as provide the support that you need to get on with the rest of your life.
Together with awareness and education we can STOP STROKE!
I will post again soon..
