As well as the physical after effects, some people find themselves questioning their previously held beliefs. Spirituality may be described as the person’s inner strength, their contentedness in life or perhaps faith.Therefor after a stroke  you or the person who has had the stroke may find common questions and feelings which you may want to attempt to address.
