Amy Finger Ziegler Discusses Reclaiming Life after a Stroke
Author Amy Finger Ziegler takes readers on an intimate journey through her recovery from a severe, stroke-induced brain injury in her inspirational new nonfiction "Different Strokes for Different Folks: An Adventure in Stroke Recovery" (published by iUniverse).
"When I had my stroke in 2008, I looked for and could not find this book," Ziegler explains. "I needed the detail and inspiration this book provides and I hope to fill that need for others."
Written primarily for stroke victims, particularly younger stroke victims, Ziegler shares her own recovery experience and discusses how it differs from the rehabilitation program that older people generally go through. She explains how she reclaimed her adventurous life by exploring options beyond those found in traditional rehab and is hopeful that she can give readers in similar situations the confidence that they, too, can recover and live active lives again.
An excerpt from "Different Strokes for Different Folks":
"My attitude was upbeat. I refused to get depressed or discouraged. I believed in my personal power to heal myself. My motto was 'Mind over grey matter.' Trying, with positive energy, was the key."
