Can you tell me how you found out about that and, you know, if you've got any other experiences using support groups?
I liked the idea of young stroke survivors, because it's very different to, with respect to older people, it's very different when you're 41 and disabled to when you're 75 and disabled. You've got a whole different range of issues to be dealing with because you're younger.
I mean, some of me thinks, “Well do, what help will I really get from being around stroke survivors?” Now, maybe I'd get a lot actually because it's, it's like having one foot where I'd like to talk to people who've had strokes and then on the other foot that says, “Well [own name]”, one foot where I'd like to talk to people who've had strokes and the other foot that says, “Well, really, you need to get on and go, move forwards, and integrate that into your life”. And I happen to have a close friend who has had a stroke, a major stroke as well. So I mean, he and I are in quite regular contact, so we can talk to each other about, how fed up we get with not being able to walk properly [laughter], or people pushing us in shops or, the sorts of things that stroke survivors want to moan about occasionally or joke about. And I prefer that with a friendship. Yeah.
