Reply To: Accepted? Or Tolerated?

Phanuel Mabbola

This is very crucial, self advocacy is very important in stroke recovery, every one should apply it and be Pro-active  towards recovery. 
I Iike the spirit of most of the survivors I have been involved with in their recovery, their effort and courage towards their rehabilitation they have been so active that they always accepted the challenge but mainly without much help or support from family members.Such is the self advocacy which Is needed from our stroke survivors.
On the other hand I agree there is much need for education with family members to the stroke survivors and friends. To accept and not just tolerate stroke survivors. 
Awareness is very much needed, we need to engage the community and educate people on the changes which comes alongside stroke.
