OK it happens,  nearly every Stroke Survivor will experience some form of depression at some stage of the recovery , often asking themselves WHY?  Why Me?  Why Did it Happen? Talk to someone it really does help.  Think of the positives rather than the dark negatives.  I experience bouts of depression, some days I have good days, some days I have bad days & I know I can be a right sod / pain in the ****   to live with.

Whilst Depression has different faces, forms of Anxiety & Anger can kick in, try not to let it, think of soothing things, listen to music, lock yourself in a room to read for a bit if you can, think about positive things, take a deep breath and say to yourself causing you to feel this way, is it worth my time to be annoyed over this, is it really worth annoying me?


Take A Breath:

Observe:    What am I thinking? What am I reaciting to?  What am I feeling in my body?

Pull Back:   Put in some perspective.  See the bigger picture.   Is this fact or fiction?  How would someone else see this?

Practise What Works:   What is the best thing to do for you, others , for this situation?
