I've heard of World Stroke Day to be on October 29th and am wondering if and what anyone is planning to be doing on that day.  I'm not certain how I will be spending my day as of yet.

I'm glad I found this.  I don't feel so alone!  I had a stroke in Oct 2008, another one sometime in 2009 and another one May 2010, and they never could tell why.  All my numbers are normal, and although I do have type 2 diabetes, with insulin, those numbers are normal as well.  And last year I broke my back!  So now I'm trying to get back on my feet.  My doc only wants me to use a recumbent exercise bike for exercise, he's afraid of me falling under any other circumstances.  Is there anyone else out there who has had a similar experience?  It's kinda hard to prevent something that you don't know how it happened to start with.
Thanks for "listening"

Thanks for sharing what you have been through Betty. I have a friend with type 2 diabetes who has had many strokes and is now having TIAs. It must feel very strange and lonely to go through something without an explanation. I can't imagine what it must be like, but you have my sympathy. Keep sharing your story. I'm sure you'll find many others experiencing something like this.

Who Can You Help With Adopt-A-Jean Friday?

Do you see or personally know those around you who may find it difficult to find clothing that meets their needs, aids independent dressing, fits properly, and fashionable allowing them to look and feel great?

Whether you are a family member, community member, teacher, or vocational worker you may be aware of the dressing difficulties and limited clothing options available for various individuals and families. You can personally help with these daily living challenges through Downs Designs Dreams Adopt-A-Jean Program.
http://downsdesignsdreams.org/adopt-a-jean-entry-form

Every Friday Downs Designs Dreams donates pairs of NBZ® or Downs Designs® Jeans to those who have been submitted through the program. We share the stories to help advocate these issues that are often overlooked and go unnoticed. We receive stories from families, teachers, vocational services and more. Friday's are our favorite day of the week when we get to contact the recipients and begin our free try-on service that will assist us in selecting the perfect style and fit for the jeans we donate to them.

Our program has aided those with Down syndrome, the elderly, disabled veterans, Parkinson's, autism, amputees, cerebral palsy, stroke victims, ALS, and many more. Who can you help?

Brain infarction, or stroke, is caused by a blood clot blocking a blood vessel in the brain, which leads to interruption of blood flow and shortage of oxygen. Now a research group at Lund University, Sweden, has taken an important step towards a treatment for stroke using stem cells.

The group shows in a new study, published in the scientific journal Brain, that so-called induced pluripotent stem cells have developed to mature nerve cells at two months after transplantation into the stroke-injured cerebral cortex of rats. These nerve cells have established contact with other important structures in the brain. The transplantation gave rise to improvement of the animals’ mobility.
Lund University, Sweden, is ranked as one of the world's top 100 universities. We have over 90 international Master's programmes and world class research across eight faculties. We are the number one choice in Sweden for both Swedish and international students...

#stroke #eyetracking #accessibility  
I have a repetitive strain injury of tendinosis (chronic tendinitis), so I was following a couple of eye tracking companies that were planning to launch cheap, mass-market products. One company has just began preorders. Some stroke sufferers should also be able to benefit from the new accessibility option of eye tracking.
