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.

How to be happy in 2018

Since your doctor fucked up in not getting you 100% recovered s/he could at least give you a prescription for happiness. This is absolutely not to be done on your own.

What can you do to ensure that 2018 will be a truly happy year? Medical News Today look at some tips that researchers have recommended for a healthier, more fulfilling life.
If there is anything that everyone undoubtedly wants in their life, it is that often elusive feeling of happiness. Famously, a high-profile engineer called Mo Gawdat has even come up with a kind of algorithm for happiness in his book Solve for Happy.
"Happiness is equal to or greater than the difference between the way you view the events in your life minus your expectations about how life should behave. Which means that if you perceive the events as equal to or greater than your expectations, you're happy—or at least not unhappy," writes Gawdat.
He spends more than 300 pages aiming to explain the basis for this algorithm and his philosophy of happiness. But there is, of course, no miracle recipe that all of us can follow to feel that glow of joy 24/7.
In this article, we do not tell you how to reach Nirvana. Instead, we look at the small things that most of us can reasonably achieve in the New Year so that we may improve our mental and physical well-being.
Here are some steps that you can take starting right now to boost your quality of life. The rest is up to you, so mind that you keep your New Year's resolutions!
1. Be more active

2. Get enough sleep

3. Settle for a happy diet

4. Make friends with the great outdoors

5. Be kind to others and to yourself

  1. I think what has contributed most to my happiness is the acceptance of Siddhartha's philosophy that happiness is independent of circumstance. My happiness's source is from within, not without.

  2. Yeah I have come to realize that my happiness is totally dependent on me, not any external circumstances.
