Karen Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 I've read on many other forums, about stroke/brain haemorrhages in childhood and their causes. Unfortunately, not many websites (including this one) seem to include children, as their plight is little known, but the parents and the child, still need support ..... I'm happy to say, that Different Strokes has just set up a forum dedicated to childhood stroke .... Perhaps, like many of us, I tended to associate stroke, with older people, like my grand parents.....perhaps over 60, older and certainly not younger. After having my own SAH/stroke, I was amazed and saddened to read (about 2 years post stroke) that even babes in the womb, can have a stroke/brain haem..... life doesn't seem fair sometimes and at least I've had a half decent one....life that is.... I think that the phrase "There for the grace of God, go I" comes into play, as us adults know what it's like to go through this, but not sure how we would cope, if it was our own child ..... I know that I would certainly be stuck for guidance and wouldn't know which way to turn, when looking for support. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
