I’m getting this posted a little late today and I’m getting kind of tired so I’m keeping this short and simple tonight.
Prompt: If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?
The one piece of advice I would have to give and have given to people is to know the signs of stroke. Strokes aren’t super common in young people but take it from me they do happen. When mine happened my husband and I had no idea what was going on. I didn’t know anything was wrong and my husband could see that my mouth was a little funny and I sounded off. It didn’t sound off to me. He was concerned enough to call my parents and his mom and was told he should cal 911. Luckily he did right away and I got to the hospital because every minute without treatment causes more damage.
So know the signs and if you see them in someone act fast. If you get help within a certain amount of time you can receive medication to lessen the damage. I couldn’t get it because mine happened while I was sleeping so there was no way of knowing how much time had passed.
