Life after a stroke may be very different from what it was before a stroke. It is however, your life to deal with. The feelings of discomfort or hesitancy in re-socialising with with friends and family is vital to you leading a full life.

Association with friends may be somewhat painful due to the changes that have occurred due to your stroke. The desire to avoid friends will improve with time and you will be able to let others know and accept the fact that you will start socialising in your own time. As you begin to feel more positive, your social interactions should resume quite easily. It helps to start slowly and important to get started by visiting or having some friends visit.

Going to places that were common to you before your stroke may suddenly seem filled with hurdles. Considering visiting restaurants with steps or tight fitting spaces may inhibit your desire to go. The need to get out there is very important. Without that plunge back into society your fears will increase and your recovery lengthen. This is not what you want to have happen.

Foot drop, which is common after a stroke, produces an awkward gait that may make you feel self conscious. A foot drop solution and physical therapy to increase the strength of the muscles that were affected will help in getting over those feelings, and you will be more comfortable getting out into the world.

If travelling, most methods of transport have help available to make your trip easier and avoid some difficulties. Hotels also have rooms that will make your stay comfortable and safe. Organisations such as support groups will help you find the resources you need to resume a full life after a stroke.

More information is available on strokes and foot drop.
