Stories told by people who have suffered strokes and their altered journey through life. More
These individual stories are an inspiration to anyone who reads them. They are stories of valour, courage and determination (some in Afrikaans and some in English) by members of the Stroke Support Group of Pretoria.
The “Strokies” (as they call themselves), spouses and volunteers write of the difficulties they overcame over and above their physical disability - alcoholism, loneliness, grief, determination to study and rejection by loved ones and how the support and encouragement within the group helped them overcome their sense of isolation to become stronger as individuals.
These stories prove that there is life after a closed brain injury and that these people function normally, despite being physically different.
