Hi, I’m a journalist writing a book on surviving stroke. I’ve been researching and writing for over a year and have a way to go, as I have to make my living while working on the book. Also titled Successfully Surviving Stroke, the book (and the blog) are written for people who’ve had strokes, their families, caregivers, friends and communities. Though neither are intended for doctors, nurses or therapists they both owe a great deal to the professionals’ collective expertise and wisdom.
The blog is a way to keep in touch with all the people I’ve interviewed and others who are interested in my progress and what I’m learning about stroke, especially what makes for successful survival. I intend to write regular entries and hope you check back often to read, make comments and ask questions. Welcome and thanks — Maureen
