Le Hermite Posted April 18, 2010 Share Posted April 18, 2010 ***NOTE This post was originally made in Young Stroke Survivor Support, but was relocated here, as I am over 39. So I hope the Younger folks *do* see it....Of course I'll keep posting in the other Forums, my comment below about the only post was for YSSS Forum*** Hi Folks.... Every once in a while, the Mgmt. at StrokeNet comes up with a *GREAT* idea.... I think the Young Survivor Stroke Support is one of those.... I'm 60, though a number of lady friends will dispute that.....<G>...! So I don't know if this will get through... You younger folks (39 and Younger) are operating in a World and social structure vastly different from us dinosaurs... My Stroke was when I was about to be 58....Hell, I thought that was young.... Just to let you know, us old dinos are out here, too.... One of the strengths of StrokeNet, and I think I can fairly say, that's against *anything* on the Net, is the wealth of experience inherent here, amongst its members.... If, at any time, you want anyone from the older crowd to chime in, comment, or answer questions, do not hesitate to to post in one of the other Forums.... We are all united, Survivors and Caregivers alike, Young or Old, by the advent of Stroke.... The strength of StrokeNet lies in its members....Their experiences....Their understanding of other Stroker's situations... I maintain, you will not find it anywhere else on the Net...Well, OK the Web, if you will...(they are different).... Now....I know it's kinda nastyass if you are a younger Stroker....I can't even imagine what a Stroke at 19, 29, or 39 would have done to my Head... On the other hand, you have Youth and recoverability.....Precious assets.... Please feel free to comment, ask questions, or vent in the other Forums.... One thing you'll find, is that we all have that commonality.... This probably the only post you will see from me in here....If you want to yak personally, feel free to PM me....Or, most anyone you meet on the Site.... We're all here for the same reason, but I know the Younger folks have a whackier World to deal with than I had... Care, and I wish you all well in your journey...
