Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain! trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 523 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal. Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.My back ground story is here:

Don't ever give up

I've seen this image a few times over the last week. Even using I can't figure out who originated this.  This needs to be posted over every survivors bed.  I imagine the bird being my doctor.

It reminds me of the other frog story I've heard.
Two Frogs
By: Author Unknown
A number of frogs were traveling through the woods. Two of
them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered
around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they
told the two frogs that they were as good as dead.
The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out
of the pit with all of their might. The other frogs kept
telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.
Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs
were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.
The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could.
Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the
pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made
it out.
When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear
us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He
thought they were encouraging him the entire time.
This story teaches two lessons:
1. There is the power of life and death in the tongue. An
encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up
and help them make it through the day.
2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be the
push over the edge. Be careful of what you say. Speak
life to those who cross your path. Anyone can speak
words that can rob another of the spirit to push forward
in difficult times.

  1. As I learned trying to go back to my old job - I just CAN'T be encouraging when asked my opinion of some idea that SUCKS. Despite being a generally optimistic, encouraging person. Seriously - if I, an inherent Pollyanna, can't muster something encouraging to say, how much must an idea suck?
