|Gary Gray living "My Life After Stroke"|
Hello to all Stroke Survivors, Family members, Caregivers and Stroke care professionals,
I have a simple question: How has your life been touched by stroke?
Let me guess. You or someone that you love has had a stroke, In my case it was a classic case of a bolt out of the blue. I couldn't speak and I was experiencing weakness in my Left side. Fortunately I was in a place where I received help right away. Within a few minutes I lapsed into a state of unconscious. Due to my blood pressure being unusually high that morning I had a bleed in the middle of my brain and my brain cells were being destroyed by a tiny pool of blood that was flooding through my head.
To tell my story and the stories of other stroke survivors we have created a small community that is dedicated to helping both we stroke survivors and others come together, learn and share just what it is like to experience stroke, survive and recover to a point that we can live a satisfying and productive life after stroke.
Our community is made up of three main social media tools.
First is our Facebook Fan Page: "My Life After Stroke" by clicking the "Like" button on this page you will be added to our Facebook followers and you will receive in your news feed any posts that are posted on our wall. You can also join the conversation by posting a link to our wall or commenting on our post.
Second there is our Blog: "My Life After Stroke" this is where we will post interesting and informative information about living our lives after stroke. There could be articles, webpage links, mp3s or videos or even podcasts and webinars. You can even publish your own posts on our blog as a guest blogger.
Third is our Twitter Feed: "After My Stroke" this is where we can interactively post short (140 character) bits of information and links that we would like to share about our lives after stroke.
These three social media sites are designed to work together as place for members of our stroke community to learn and share about living our lives after stroke. These are simple uncluttered pages where a survivor can feel comfortable spending time reading, watching, listening or interacting with other survivors, family members, caregivers and health care professionals.
We warmly invite you to come, join in our conversation and learn more about My Life After Stroke.
We can also be contacted by email if you prefer either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
