A Stroke of Poetry


Product Description
Product Details


Stroke is a devastating event for those who survive it, and the effects extend far beyond the immediately visible paralysis and communication problems. Disabling fatigue, difficulty with concentrating and thinking, and emotional problems are unseen from the outside, but extremely common and often the most disabling and distressing sequelae for the stroke survivor. Medicine is only beginning to understand just how important this is, and we have a long way to go in developing effective interventions. The good news is that recovery, though usually a long process, is possible. We do know that physical, social, and mental activity is extremely important in the recovery phase, and Shelagh's journey is an excellent example of this. She has embraced the experience of her stroke in a positive way and used the creative outlet of poetry and the compilation of this book as part of her recovery. I commend this book, especially for anyone who is struggling with unseen effects following a health challenge. Take Shelagh's words and example as an inspiration and stimulus to accept and rise above your personal challenges. Dr Rohan Grimley, Stroke Physician
