Thank you for taking the time to read about Charlie's experience as a stroke survivor.

Charlie survived a stroke, only to be defeated by debilitating fatigue that kept him confined to his bedroom for four very long years.

Charlie's post-stroke fatigue made him feel ‘so frustrated and depressed about not being able to enjoy a normal life and to be so reliant on others.”

Charlie got his life back thanks to HMRI’s ‘Modafinil in Debilitating Fatigue After Stroke’ (MIDAS) research project. He couldn’t believe how much he’d changed: “Within a few days I was a changed man, mentally and physically. I couldn’t wait to get out of bed in the morning. Everything was better; my memory, my sight, my concentration.”
