I live alone so I am both the caregiver and the stroke survivor. I am divorced and was not able to have children. My two middle-aged bachelor brothers live 800 miles away and two life-long friends live 1,200 miles away. My parents are dead. Thank goodness I have a small army of local friends.
I had my stroke a year after I completed my doctorate in cognitive psychology. My stroke rehab felt like my last major learning experience so I wrote a book called My Last Degree: A Therapist Goes Home After a Stroke. My sense of purpose continued to grow as I developed Power Point presentations for stroke survivor support groups, rehab professionals, and OT students. I live in New Jersey, U.S.A.

There are reports of Amazon listing books as “out of stock” and imposing long delivery times. You can order this book from the publisher at www.booklocker.com.
