If it is ok to share, Rev. Ray Rose shares his story for the first time. He survived a stroke, shares his recovery, the hard times and the wins. He then goes on to help others. http://www.everydayisasecondchance.com/reverend-ray-rose-stroke-survivor/

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.

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.

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"

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.
