“A humorous, enlightening and delightfully honest journey! Do read Before, Afdre and After (my stroke…)“
By Elaine C Pereira
“What a Wild Ride! What a Journey and what a Book! It’s honest, funny, hard, and so very real! I’m an Occupational Therapist and understand how terrifying it must feel to watch yourself unravel in real time from the inside out, powerless to stop your own derailing neurological train! I appreciate the details and examples of Maureen’s struggle.
She includes pictures, sketches, charts and exercises; these might not be of great interest to readers without a medical background, but they were to me. It’s such a harrowing struggle to regain what you shouldn’t have lost and a such a young age. Kudos to you Maureen!”
(Amazon books): Before, Afdre, and After
Inspired by The Day the Crayons Came Home
… I guess they thought this was the same theme?
Well, I think it’s not the same theme, but I love The Day the Crayons Came Home too …
Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke … oh what fun)
“Maureen is an amazing writer whose heartfelt and humorous book tells the story of her stroke and the long road of rehabilitation and recovery.
As a speech therapist, who teaches communication classes to stroke survivors, I found Maureen’s book captured the feelings and struggle that so many individuals experience in their recovery. In our stroke-communication class we read and discussed her book together, and Maureen’s voice and message resonated with everyone.
It is very fortunate for us that Maureen decided that this was the story she would write a book about! This book is a great tool for stroke survivors and is an inspiration to all who read it.”
