2) Scenario 1 – Elena


I was feeling annoyed that I had let myself and family down as I didn’t achieve my goal of walking to school to pick up my daughter. I was very focused on what I saw as a failure until I was helped at my local stroke support group to think about all the progress I had made over the last 3 months since getting home from hospital. You often forget how far you have come.

Something to try

  • Have a think about what you’ve done well over the last few months and make a list of some of these.
  • You may want to discuss this with your family/friends.

Let’s now go on and see what Elena changed to achieve her goal.
