Reply To: Am I too sensitive?

Joyce Hoffman

Elinor says, “I am going to be more aware of this now” in regards to
overcomplimenting, or worse yet, false complimenting or inquiring about, a
stroke survivor. I am a stroke survivor so I know how it is.

Talk about other things—a hobby, a visit, a cooking mistake. Stroke
survivors don’t like their condition and talking about it reinforces their
misery. Just for your visit, don’t ask. GOOGLE IT to learn more about
having a stroke!
