May is Stroke Awareness Month.

May is Stroke Awareness Month

 

Many of you may not realize I had TIAs (transient ischemic attacks), or a series of minor strokes, in 2006, which radically affected my health. I was asked to share that experience with Wear Your Voice a magazine devoted to a radically fresh approach to media. Find it at When I Had a Stroke at 35, My age–And Gender–Led to Misdiagnosis. The moral of the story is, advocate for yourself, above doctors, lab results, and everything contrary to your own experience. The body knows.
