can I add to this request, via an interview,
I took part in helping this research into this little understood aspect of stroke brain injury.

I would urge anybody that fits the criteria to contact loana.
if you are considering doing it just go for it.
I found it to be an almost cathartic experience, to be able to talk to somebody (without being judged), on this almost taboo subject,
especially for men, when I mention the matter to friends and family the general reaction is a shrug of the shoulders, medical people seem to give contradictory advice and the offer of more medication (in my experience).
sometimes the subject of the emotional liability side of stroke arises on the forum.
a better understanding is definitely required.
