The book is written for people who have suffered a brain stroke and their friends and family; "That they may benefit from the experience that I have gained and try to share by telling my story. We share one common objective: reconditioning our mind and body for new and rewarding lifestyles. However different that may turn out to be.".
Rehabilitation is all about attitude; the book reads like a novel and is an inspiration to patients, family, friends and professionals; I have created my own miracle; now I invite others to do the same.
The book contains numerous hints and tips. Rather than plain telling, the story triggers the imagination and makes it easier to recognize behavioural or physical symptoms. By doing so, I hope to reduce the struggle by other individuals who ended up in a similar situation and of those in their surroundings. The importance of the role of caregiver is intertwined with the story throughout the book and summarized in a dedicated chapter.
The autobiography covers a period of three years. Practical examples give a unique insight, from medical recovery to the return to society, to patients as well as family and friends. Many readers can gain from the understanding that arises. Illustrations show the process of healing over time by key area; medical, mental and physical.
