Reply To: Incontinence and stroke


Joyce, thanks for bringing this up.

Stroke causes so many inconvenient changes to our life.

How often do we hear “you need to exercise more” and “drink a lot of water”? Great advice. People mean well.

But how much does such advice help? Unfortunately not much.

We would love to return to gym and backpack on the hiking trails on a regular basis. Nothing brings us more joy than getting back to the old exercises or active life styles before stroke. Yet, this is no longer possible to many of us. Instead of talking about the great benefits of exercises, we need discussions on what if we can not exercise? What if drinking a lot of water could lead to something we do not want? At least, we find ourselves not alone when dealing with these issues.

By the way, your blogs are beautiful.
