Common Questions and Answers about Stroke victims support groups


Avatar m tn I was just wondering how much support is out there for the younger stroke victims maybe in the format of groups or chatrooms or something.
Avatar n tn Is there a website listing support groups for stoke victims? Does anyone know if there is a support group for stroke victims in the Owatonna or Faribault, Minnesota area? Thank you!

Avatar m tn It seems that Seattle does not have any support groups in the area? How do people cope when they find out they are positive for HSV 1 or 2? I was diagnosed over 3 years ago through a blood test IGg. I have pretty much isolated myself from going out, meeting anyone and I have no one to talk to at all. I got blood tested after going online and requesting the STD test through quest diagnostics laboratory. My results ccame back positive for both HSV 1 and 2.

Lead by others with medical conditions like ours, opinions are shared by all, and comfort is widely given while tears flow. The discussions are personal and individualized making this the place to be when your chin is on the ground. Self-Help groups relieve a different pain. In this setting professionals teach you the steps necessary to better yourself and your position.
Avatar f tn i heard that there are support groups i was wondering if anyone knew of a site i can search for one in my area or does anyone know of one in the daytona beach fl area?
Avatar n tn I have shied away from going to support groups for various reasons but am beginning to think now maybe one would be helpful. Thoughts? I feel like I am losing ground daily not only physically but also emotionally. I have applied for social security disability (something I said I would NEVER do) because my physician refuses to release me to go back to work. I just feel that I can no longer be the "strong" one.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know off any support groups you can go to in Belfast?to talk to people with the same depression illness as me?
Avatar m tn Are there any support groups that meet for Chiari survivors, sufferers in Knoxville, TN. My daughter had decompression surgery a year and a half ago. Since then she has been suffering from headaches and mind seizures as well as fear, depression and anxiety. She has had to quit her job and we are probably going to have to file for disability for her. I think a support group would help her feel not so all alone.
Avatar n tn We are hoping to find some information or direction. Our mom, Suzanne, who is 71 had a stroke on the back of her head, on the brain stem on May 23rd 2008. All of her memory and the part of her brain that makes her who she is, is all there. Thank god! Suzanne was diagnosed with a stroke 7 1/2 hours after being rushed to the emergency room. My family and I found this a bit odd since she had every symptom of having a stroke.
Avatar n tn I enjoy reading that research is leading to new breakthroughs to help victims of stroke. I have also read that although most recovery for stroke patients is seen within the first 6 months, that patients may recover for YEARS after stroke. I personally believe that a persons will and the support they receive greatly assist in their ability to recover. Researchers are also making breakthroughs to assist in the treatment of aphasis, dysphagia, paralysis etc.
Avatar f tn Also please read "Post Thalamic Stroke Pain". There is a man on there less than 30 years old with horrible pain from his stroke. That's another consequence that I neglected to mention.
Avatar f tn Now that you have been diagnosed you can begin to recover. There are many support groups available for victims of sexual abuse and they are very helpful, remember that many of us, (providers) have never been victims of sexual abuse so peer to peer support is very important. I wish you the best of luck in your treatment and recovery and applaud you for seeking treatment!
Avatar f tn My best friend had a massive stroke on Jan.16/09. As of Jan 18/09 she has been in a coma. She is 51 years old and has been in fairly good health. She has always been a fighter. The Drs. are only giving her less then 5% chance of pulling out of it. Anyone that knows the same situation with any words of encouragement would help. Right now we are helpless, just alot of prayers.
Avatar n tn Told that it will take about 6-8 for some of the blood to be absorbed by the brain and that it is normal for stroke victims to sleep more then 12 hours per day. There also risk of seizers, "but hope not". It's also common for stroke victims to suffer from OCD after the stroke. Taking walking for granted and learning to walk was the most frustrating for me. Wish you and Mom well.
Avatar m tn How do you find local support groups in your area for narcotic addicts. Is there a website?
Avatar f tn Various health conditions like Dibetes, Heart, Chronic Pain always seem to have local support groups but when it comes to eye conditions they seem to be lacking. Patients see a doctor, they might be given a brochure and then there is usually no commuication until their next visit. Outside of forum like this individuals with the same eye conditions can't get support from each other or from speakers that come to speak at support group meetings.
Avatar f tn Are Anxiety support Groups of any value? Anyone had success attending one? Where could I find a list by state?
