Facing survival post-stroke

A story about a Texas stroke survivor:

His advice for stroke survivors is simple - think positively and remember; you have to have a sense of humor about the situation.

"When I tell other stroke patients my story, I tell them, don't give up," he said. "You don't have to sit in your chair and waste away. Get up and do what you have to do in order to get over these things and you will get over it. It might take a long time, it's not easy, but you will do it."

Keep in mind that the "it" will be different for every stroke survivor. And as the survivor says - we're not talking about making recovery simple or easy.

Still, the sentiment is there. If you are a stroke survivor, you can make a difference, small or large.
