I also had a stroke and have been looking for groups/message boards for young people who have had strokes. I haven't found too much, but there are a few groups on facebook. It seems like all the resources are for parents of young kids/babies who have had strokes or much older people who have had strokes.
When did you have your stroke? How have you been doing since?
I to have been looking for a option. I'm 29 and had a stroke on June 17th.
My 35 year old daughter had a stroke on August 26, 2008. I have also been looking for a message board or a group for support for her. Everything I am finding is for older people and I must say, young people's issues are so different. If any of you find something please come back and post it. I would be curious to know why you each had your stroke at a young age? My daughter's was from birth control pills and I think this is more common that most people realize. I hope all of you are doing well with your recovery and with life in general.
Why was my response to this thread removed? I have not had any communication with any mods regarding my post & yet it is gone. I know I referred to other web sites but numerous other posts do similar. I was trying to help the OP get the support they are seeking.
I am wondering the same thing. I am 40 years young and suffered a stroke Oct 1, 2008. Also, I feel I was malpracticed by my primary physician and was told this in no uncertain terms from my new doctor. Does anyone have any information on what recourse I can take, if any? I know it would be hard to prove, but my God, she released me from the hospital while I was in the midst of having the stroke. I ended up back at the hospital much worse than before and was given tPA. Thank God I am recovering. It's been an uphill battle, but I have great support and a wonderful new team of physicians! :)
As everyone else, I am also looking for some sort of support group out there. I only just turned 20 about two months ago and it's kind of rough finding people my ago to relate to.
