According to actress Emilia Clarke, her paramedics were one of the kindest people who helped her recover from her ruptured brain aneurysms that she suffered in 2011 and 2013.

The recovery journey has been painful but it has been a bit easy with the help of her loved ones as well as complete strangers.

CLARKE SALUTES THE HEROES

Speaking in the Kindness Issue of People, Clarke revealed that her paramedics took care of every small detail to ensure that she did not feel much pain.

"They’d given me drugs so I was in less pain, wrapped me up like a tortilla and made me laugh the whole way to the hospital. There I was, bleeding in the brain, and there we were in this ambulance having an absolute giggle. They were so gracious.”

Clarke further added that even the nurses she encountered during her recovery process were always kind to her. For her, they were the unsung heroes who are with people during their scariest days.

The kindness of the nurses she came across also inspired her to become the ambassador to the Royal College of Nursing in 2018.

EVERY LITTLE CARE MATTERS

Besides these strangers, the warm affection of her mother also proved to be absolutely crucial for Clarke.

The "Game of Thrones" actress revealed that her mother came by the hospital and seemed to know what she was trying to say even when she was suffering from a loss speech.

HER EXPERIENCE WITH ANEURYSM

Clarke opened up in March earlier this year that she almost lost her mind and then eventually her life due to an aneurysm, an arterial rupture, which she suffered for the first time in 2011.

Since then, she has undergone two life-saving brain surgeries over the past eight years as a cure for her aneurysm growth.

Clarke revealed that the surgeries were risky and they were always not successful. Similarly, her recovery was also a challenging process.

It was so excruciating that she even felt like ending her life at one point in time when she couldn't remember even her name.

FINDING PURPOSE IN THE PAIN

Her experiences with aneurysm inspired the actress to start a charity, named "SameYou," for the people whose lives are transformed by a brain injury.

The main focus of the charity is to help people during their recovery. Clarke urges people to join her and support the charity "to help increase rehabilitation access after brain injury and stroke."
