To be a Stroke Survivor rather than a Victim

• Believe in yourself (the inner-you).

• You have had a stroke, you are not dead, get on with your life!

• If you want to get better, YOU have to work hard.

• Look to the future, not the past.

• Seek support (family, friends, church & other stroke survivors).

• Have a sense of humor.

• You must be able to laugh at yourself.

• Your whole body doesn’t work doesn’t mean that you can’t be a whole person.

• If what you do doesn’t work, try again, again and again.

• Push your brain.

• You must re-learn basic skills in order to regain higher skills.

• Be adaptable, find a new niche in life, and be happy.
