"Different strokes"

Posted on October 18, 2013 at 6:47 PM
I am sure if you are familiar with stroke, you have heard the phrase different strokes for different folks. Obviously I did not coin that phrase, but I think it is a very important basic concept to understand. Every stroke is different for each individual. The kind of stroke, the reason, the damage, the side-effects and certainly the recovery.
My stroke happened while I was in the hospital for observation due to an epidural puncture I received while being treated for some lower back pain. I was in my 30's, and an avid triathlete, having participated in many triathlons, including 3 Ironman races. My stroke like everyone's is a long story and lots of complications along the way. Many stroke survivors ask or wonder how or why they survived their stroke, or why they had their stroke, in the first place. Again the story is different for every survivor. If I were to just think about the part of surviving the stroke, I would say we or you or your loved one survived because of who you/they are and the unique resilience you/they have. If this is too general, I think that I want it to be because again there are many circumstances. BUT, I believe that you survived because of who you are..., or Devine intervention, or exemplarily medical attention,but NOT luck. For the sake of my personal feelings, I like to think that we all have attributes that make us unique and much of why you lived is because of your attributes...defined by You and maybe people that know you best... I encourage you to try to understand your attributes, grasp them and add to them as you continue your journey as a survivor. I always think about how nothing is guaranteed but personally I always have hope that tomorrow will come and it will be a different day. Maybe tomorrow is challenging, but it will be different and believing  that, always makes me feel like I have a chance to see change or something new and with that thought I find strength.

Having a stroke is one of the scariest things that a person can experience. A stroke is very fatal if not treated immediately. I also know that strokes can lead to many problems, especially in the nervous system. I have heard of people who have been bedridden or lost control of their bodies after suffering a stroke. While strokes are common, they are not unpredictable. That is why, we should continue to monitor our conditions, so that we can avoid getting a stroke.
