Hi Georgina
We are new too. My name is Darren and my girlfriend Kirsti had 2 strokes about 7 weeks ago.
She is 46 and similarly is struggling with memory and fatige. She also can't read which is why I am replying on here.
Thought I would reply so you know you aren't the only one out there.
Kirsti is trying to find groups to try and talk as there doesn't seem to be much near us. The stroke association have been good. A lot of the groups nearish to us seem to be older people. Even different strokes which is for younger stroke survivors. We might have found one that is a bit more local though through different strokes so fingers crossed.

Headway are another good charity as they help with brain injury's.

Hello Georgina, Darren and Kirsti
Have you been to the Different Strokes website? We have an information pack available to download which provides help regarding the difficulties you are facing. http://www.differentstrokes.co.uk/index.php/adults

You can use our online chat or phone us to speak to younger stroke survivors who work in the office: 01908 317618 or 0845 130 7172.

We also have a very active facebook group where you can either just view comments or if you wish join in with conversations with younger stroke survivors. We find that many stroke survivors find it beneficial to chat to others which relieves the feeling of isolation (if you are experiencing that).

We also have survivor stories on our website: http://www.differentstrokes.co.uk/index ... ies-by-age

hope this helps,
best wishes
