    Smile World Stroke Day 2018

    A post I put on my social media for World Stroke Day 2018. http://cripvideoproductions.tumblr.c...ontaneous-many https://plus.google.com/103662816758...ts/eJA6eTNqVCy

    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.
