I am new to this website, but have read many of your experiences with stroke and find this to be very comforting and informative. My Dad had a stroke in april of this year, he is 61 (I am 32). I would like to know any of your experiences with post stroke denial, where the stroke survivor really feels that they can do something that they cant. I dont want to discourage him, but his ideas and plans are not even close to what he can safely accomplish. For example: my Dad is home now and still requires 2 people to transfer him. He has a significant left sided neglect (wont notice anything on the left side of his plate). There is no possible way right now that he could drive, but he insists that he can and is getting angry at my step-mom and my brother that they wont let him drive. (I live 3 hrs away). Does this kind of denial get better? Just trying to figure out how we are going to manage, and would like to hear of any of your experiences with this.
