    Smile World Stroke Day 2018

    A post I put on my social media for World Stroke Day 2018. http://cripvideoproductions.tumblr.c...ontaneous-many

    I wanted to write this in honor of my friends and supporters who are stroke survivors. If you are reading this: Please learn the signs and symptoms of having a stroke, including the more subtle lessor known symptoms of stroke, so severe brain damage can be prevented, especially because people do die from stroke. Please be aware that a stroke can happen at any age. Please be aware that a stroke that occurs in the womb or early childhood is often diagnosed as “Cerebral Palsy”. In the cases where a person has already had a stroke please be a true friend to stroke survivors you know by supporting them in getting the therapy, and disability accommodations they need to readjust to post stroke life. Treat them like a human being. Listen to them. Have empathy for them, not just sympathy.
    If you are reading this and have already had a stroke, perhaps most importantly, please know that your life matters! Life can be full and beautiful post-stroke. You can indeed live happily post-stroke. Your opinions matter. There are people on this earth who want you here, and want to help you if you want help.

    Here are some resources I found while researching stroke that may help others for World Stroke Day. My apologies for any links that do not work.
    Mild Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy and bad proprioception.
    My website for my original short films!
