I have started this page 27 times so please be patient as it develops into a resource for survivors and supporters to keep your relationships evolving. Helping you navigate the sudden change in personalities based on physical changes and fear of the unknown going forward.
I had my stroke on December 29th 2009. Did everything change? For a while. Did I change? Yes. Did I struggle with the man I was living with, my boyfriend? Yes. Did I struggle with my father ? Yes. Did I understand what was happening within those relationships? No. I have not found any resource that helps navigate the changes in the individuals' relationships.
I have recently partnered with a communications expert and a neuro scientist who has a passion for the rewiring of the brain after a trauma occurs.

Reach out, remember this is for YOU in its early stages. Let's make it great!
