How does one cope with the stroke, head injury or other neurological disorders? Will he or she be depressed?

There is never a single way to cope for those who have suffered from these neurological disorders. 
During the early stages recovery, the patient may not be clearly aware of the nature of the neurological disorder or its consequences. As improvement and changes occur, increased understanding of the impact grows. Frequent emotional reaction is sadness, difficulties with adjustment (e.g. paralysis) or possibly clinical depression may be seen. 
Although there are many stages of grieving and recovery processes that have been observed and documented, each stage however is based on the patient’s individual personality, family support, their response to a life-changing illness and their journey back to independence.
