How to Recover From a Stroke

Stroke occurs when blood flow stops to any part of the body. When the blood cannot flow to the brain then due to insufficient amount of oxygen that part of body becomes lifeless. This is a stage when life becomes burden and people start thinking that it’s their end. But no it’s not the end because there are people who have recovered survived this and are living happily. Medical treatment can reduce the extent of brain damage. As the recovery period varies from person to person but still one should never lose hope. Here are some tips which can help you in successful recovery:

  1. Rehabilitation program: Rehabilitation programs help the stroke patients to get a life and learn all those skills that they might have lost due to the stroke. These programs include physical therapy, communication skills that help a patient to be normal as he was before the stroke.
  2. Nutritious diet: A healthy and a balanced diet help a patient to recover fast. As a stroke makes a person mentally and physically weak. So it’s very important to have a nutritious diet which will help to regain strength and energy. Some stroke survivors find difficult to eat. So for that one can try cutting food into smaller pieces or can also blend them.
  3. Take help: Recovering from a stroke is something that you cannot do alone. Stroke survivors need assistance most of the time so ask for help. Talk to the people around you whenever you feel depressed or upset. Go out, watch movies, surf internet, play casino games etc.
  4. Resolution: Make it a resolution that you will recover your stroke .You won’t let your stroke to defeat you. As recovering after a stroke is very challenging and may take some time but you should be determined to recover. Enjoy your time with your family and friends besides that follow your doctor’s advice and involve in rehabilitation.
  5. Get the necessary tools: Stroke survivors need some tools for their daily activities. Convert your bathrooms and bedrooms in such a way so that you don’t have problem in moving in wheel chair and hand rails. Accept help from your family members.

Besides these in the end it’s your hope and positive attitude which will help you in successful recovery. We as humans are blessed with such a beautiful life so live it, feel it, accept it happily.


More Conversation with Dr. Smith

Hello, my name is Karen, thank you for bringing your concerns to Just Answer, before, I continue on with my reply to you..please know that I am very sorry to hear of your suffering a stroke..and the effects of this with regards continuous tearfulness..


What is known and researched is that of strokes leading to personality changes and emotional imbalances( to name but a few of the devastating effects)…and that stroke survivors often find that crying, anger, and laughter occur more easily than they did before the stroke. In some stroke patients, “emotional lability” occurs, when crying and laughter become uncontrollable…though documentation of this is somewhat limited..

A way of letting other Drs becoming much more informed of this would be by getting in touch with ‘AMA American Medical Association’..who publish the American Medical Journal’ and this gets circulated throughout America .. I have posted their website for you to highlight paste and view..for contact details..Failing this perhaps a news article in your city newspaper would be another option..with an appropriate eye catching heading for Dr’s to see and note.It has been documented over the years that indeed Citalopram is used in treatment of traumatic brain damage..

I have also posted a very informative ( though short) blog from a G Anderson of Neurology University Hospital..below..who actually wrote an article about continueous weaping with regards to a stroke..though, this article was posted in Feb 1995..yet it might be worth while writing to him never the less.

Andersen G.

Department of Neurology, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark.
1995 Feb;6(2):105-11.


Sadly, there is not a lot of information available concerning the connection..and I wish you well if you proceed in making contact with those mentioned above..and hope that it has been helpful to you…if it has please ‘accept’ my response as it does help us greatly to keep this valuable service going for you and others in the future..
blessings in your recovery

Dear Dr. Smith

I am familiar with Dr. Andersen who wrote that article and I have sent him a email but he has not responded to me. Neithertheless, I will keep trying.

Hello, thank you for your reply..Oh, that is good you are familiar with Dr Andersen and his work…if he has indeed moved on perhaps it would be another option to address it to the head of the Department of Neurology, he/she might well take it a step further for you or it could be well be sent on to Dr Anderson..The next very useful option to perhaps consider would be the American Medical Journal as mentioned..if at all possible..as this permeates right across the USA throughout all hospital boards…Doctors..
Best wishes
