Even Hercules Can Have a Stroke


Open a digital copy of this month’s Stroke Connection and read about Kevin Sorbo’s account of his stroke and recovery (YES that Hercules). His book is a great read too, but if you just can’t afford to miss a minute on Facebook then click on the link above to read this great article written by Jon Caswell in Stroke Connection on Kevin’s recovery after a stroke.


[My personal sidebar] Best line/take away: Kevin mentions in the article and in his book that his state of mind post-stroke was like ” looking out from inside an aquarium with a low humming sound in the back of his head that never stopped “.  I bet many readers of my blog that are migraineurs/stroke survivors can understand this all too well.
