The Life In My Head: From Stroke To Brain Attack
Monday 2 March
BBC RADIO 4
Robert McCrum journeys into his own brain to understand more about stroke.
Ever since he suffered a severe stroke in 1995, McCrum has been living with its consequences. He says: ‘It's one of the remorseless side-effects of the affliction that, if you survive it, you will live with its after-effects and the conundrum about existence it poses, for the rest of your life.’ The demands of an ongoing recovery still have to be met.
This two-part series is a reflection and continued discovery, 20 years on, of McCrum's condition.
