You survived a stroke, but now you’re dealing with the painful uncertainty, anxiety, and depression left in its wake. You’re ready to take control and take back your mental health — you just need a little help. Angie Read shares her personal story of survival, struggle, and strength through the storm after a stroke. You’ll learn the ten simple “hacks” Angie used to manage her own mental health.

Angie Read is a driven and devoted mother of three who had a massive stroke at 46, despite being an active, otherwise healthy woman. She had a career she loved and thrived in, one she never expected to be ripped away from without warning. Following more than 25 successful years as a public relations professional, she took a career detour and co-authored a book about marketing to Gen Z. She had plans of traveling the world to speak about this topic for which she had so much passion. But the Universe had other plans. After her stroke, she was plagued by post-stroke anxiety (PSA) and post-stroke depression (PSD), and had to use every resource available to survive the chaos in her brain.

Today, Angie is back in fighting form. She has returned to the communications career she so thoroughly enjoys. Now, Angie is sharing her story—and the tips and tools that helped her survive—to help as many fellow stroke survivors as possible.  Because nobody has to struggle alone. There is hope!
