The role fashion plays in my stroke recovery

Jenny McAllister, the creator of StyleAbility, talks about the challenges she has faced as a young stroke survivor. One of Jenny’s biggest challenges has been people’s lack of understanding and the feeling of invisibility. She says “I often feel invisible, being out and about, and people talking to the person I’m with rather than talking to me”.

Some of the topics discussed will get you thinking about your own experiences. If you feel any distress, talk with someone you trust—perhaps a family member, friend, or your doctor. If you need support, information or advice StrokeLine’s health professionals are available 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, AEST. Call StrokeLine on 1800 787 653 or email strokeline@strokefoundation.org.au. Lifeline is available 24 hours a day on 13 11 44.
