If your records say "stroke" anywhere on them, you are in luck . "Stroke" happens To be one area in brain injury that is funded. My issue has been the other areas. (Only part of my brain is funded? No, all of me would, but my roommate in the hospital would get nothing. She was car accident only.)
Get this...my records don't state I even have a brain injury. They say something like "a hemorrhage from an arteriovenous malformation and a car accident earlier." Most medical people know an arteriovenous malformation is an AVM. It bleeds and is a stroke. A hemorrhage is a bleed. My records state the cerebellum. Umm...that's the brain.
I do have a brain injury and AVM stroke. My records use words that have some family in a whirl.
If you have stroke written anywhere, you would qualify for stroke programs. I haven't kept up on these because my issue has been everyone else.
I don't care what your brain injury is, so if there is a free magazine called Stroke Connection, I'm going to tell you about it. So what if "Stroke" is in the title? A stroke is just a type of brain injury. http://strokeconnection.strokeassociation.org/Subscribe/
StrokeSmart is also free, http://www.strokesmart.org/. I haven't seen as many helpful articles, but it does have a lot of pertinent ads... that fuel your search for cheap knock-offs.
A few years ago I was in Stroke Connection magazine, http://www.strokeassociation.org/idc/groups/stroke-public/@wcm/@hcm/@mag/documents/downloadable/ucm_463065.pdf . Just type in "9" for the page.
