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.

The Best Sleep Timing To Reduce Anxiety

You have one hell of a lot of anxiety about getting to 100% recovery since your doctor doesn't tell you how to do that. Maybe if you're lucky your doctor will address your anxiety instead as a sop to your emotional needs.

Sleeping at the right time is linked to lower levels of anxiety.
People who go to sleep later tend to experience more repetitive negative thinking, research finds.
Those who go to bed later also get more overwhelmed with negative thoughts than those who keep more regular sleeping hours.
People who experience repetitive negative thinking typically feel they have little control over it.
They worry too much about both the future and the past, and the thoughts tend to intrude into everyday life.
These intrusive thoughts are linked to depression, anxiety disorder, OCD and social anxiety disorder.

Mr Jacob Nota, the study’s first author, said:
“Making sure that sleep is obtained during the right time of day may be an inexpensive and easily disseminable intervention for individuals who are bothered by intrusive thoughts.”
Professor Meredith E. Coles, the study’s co-author, said:
“If further findings support the relation between sleep timing and repetitive negative thinking, this could one day lead to a new avenue for treatment of individuals with internalizing disorders.
Studying the relation between reductions in sleep duration and psychopathology has already demonstrated that focusing on sleep in the clinic also leads to reductions in symptoms of psychopathology.”
The study was published in the journal Cognitive Therapy and Research (Nota & Coles, 2014).
