Today is the US National Stroke Association’s Positive Thinking Day. Karen is sharing her positive thought.
At the time of her stroke Karen was totally paralysed in one side of her body. The doctor told her she would never walk again. For a couple of years parenting was extremely challenging and Karen’s children often had a joyless mum. A persistent issue for Karen has been loss of touch sensation.
Karen’s positive thought is that beyond the physical and cognitive recovery of a stroke survivor and the emotional recovery of the whole family, lies a playful, happy family life.
This is what it looks like. It’s only 30 seconds long and we’d love you to have a look.
