I always thought I was afraid of death.
And yet, when they brought me back from the medical places, and I was lying paralyzed, in a metal hospital bed at home, with catheter in my dick, bedpan at my ass, attendant maid looking anxiously on, and death in a clasp around me, I found myself utterly unafraid of it.
I had become afraid of life!
Whether you're a stroke survivor, or a caregiver to one, the chances are you need information on absolutely every front.
This book contains information from someone who used to be just another one of everyone, until, in an instant, he became incapable of independently conducting body functions, ended up dependent on those around, and became a hazard to himself.
Everything in here is stroke-related, but is not all to do with medicine and exercise.
I do not offer specific medical advice, although I do give details of what I did, or what may have been done to me, on the medical front.
Similarly, while I am not a physiotherapist, I have worked on a frozen, unresponsive body, my own, and therefore give out insider information on what was done.
Enter a terrible place, where endless effort makes nothing at all seem to happen…
