Get Help FAST that’s the message from this week’s incredible woman Shelagh Brennand. Shelagh, not quite 50 at the time, was out in her garden just a few years ago when she started to feel quite unwell. Unbeknown to her she was actually having a stroke. Fortunately, Shelagh’s son was home, and after collapsing she ended up in the back of the ambulance and on her way to hospital.
Shelagh and I chat about what having a stroke has meant to her. Her experience through diagnosis and recovery, and her amazing life now.
Shelagh has now dedicated her life to helping others understand about stroke, and has recently published a book of poems, “A Stroke of Poetry”, that she wrote to help her through her recovery.
Her biggest tips; be grateful for all you have, and know the signs of a stroke.
