Description

Most books on strokes are filled with stories of victims in their latter years, of high blood pressure and bad cholesterol. Girls Only is for young women and about the once considered rare phenomenon of Vertebral Artery Dissection--aka cerebellar infarct-- which is gradually and sadly becoming more prominent. This type of stroke affects men and women, adults and teenagers alike; after suffering a V.A.D. at the age of thirty-four, Lisa Bernstein felt compelled to share with all women, their families and caregivers the tale of the vicious attack that struck out of the blue. It's a tale of darkness, panic, and complete isolation from what was once a beautiful and healthy life; of loss and great sorrow. Yet through the love of family, medical technology, and strength, a life once shattered was rebuilt. With a wealth of valuable medical information, and common sense advice on how to listen to your body and take care of yourself, Girls Only teaches that love and patience is key to healing. Women, you are not alone in the crazy world of stroke. About the Author: Lisa Bernstein is an outgoing woman with a zest for life. She is also a stroke survivor. Behind her are nearly fifteen years of working in the medical field as a surgical scrub nurse, and early winnings of first, second and third place in writing and public speaking. Lisa volunteers her time at a pet adoption center and on occasion speaks to young ladies in their middle and high school years. Lisa and her husband Steven reside in Texas.
