Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 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:

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's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

National Stroke Association - We are thrilled to expand Stroke Challenge in 2017.

Guargantuan Fucking Whoopee.

Good conscious laundering here. Not one iota of this has anything to do with helping stroke survivors or solving any of the problems in stroke. Why do you even have stroke in your name?
Let's not solve anything that stroke survivors care about;
Like maybe;

 Betsy, Why don't you challenge your organization to do ANYTHING useful for survivors. Bet you can't think of one goddamned thing. 

Robyn Moore, Why haven't you contacted me yet? I'm positive at least some of your staff knows about their greatest critic.  Are you afraid of a simple minded stroke addled survivor?
