Stroke Statistics. Although stroke has fallen from the third to fourth leading cause of death within the United States, outlook after survival is still grim. Medical treatment has become much more advanced for stroke survivors immediately following a stroke and through rehabilitation, but strokes are a very serious medical condition that require a lifetime of dedication to overcome. Stroke severity is measured by analyzing neurological impairments in language and behaviors and by conducting a CT scan or MRI.
Anyone think there should be a dating site for caregivers? If the caregiver isn't a spouse finding someone with a similar situation can be an ice breaker and take it from there. That is an interesting idea. Agree with you it would be helpful to meet people who are similiar situations. Today what I find interesting is that for how "connected" we are with the internet how really alone we really are. How do you cross over and really have a true support system? What people really crave is real contact.
Stroke, the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, can happen to anyone at any time. Just ask these survivors. From undiagnosed high blood pressure to unknown family history for stroke, many things can affect stroke risk.
By CagedBird , May 30, in Relationships. As an individual with a disability I have found that it is easier to meet people online when it comes to dating. A lot of guys I meet in person see my hand or my limp before they see my personality. Has anyone had success with online dating? I find it easier to build a friendship with someone behind the computer screen.
