Because all that compacted trash you’re throwing out of the airlock’s gotta go somewhere.
Huzzah, actual detailing of the broken plating showing skin underneath!!!
Because I feel bad if I don’t reblog…
STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters… S.T..R …
My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.
During a party, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. (they offered to call ambulance)
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.)
She had suffered a stroke at the party . Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.
Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this…
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Remember the ‘3’ steps, STR . Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.
The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions :
S * Ask the individual to SMILE ..
T * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg ‘It is sunny out today’).
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call the ambulance and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
NOTE : Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is
1. Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue.
2. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A prominent cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
And it could be your own.
First reblog post that actually saves a life.
This is a life-saving post.
the more you know
yeah don’t think that this can’t happen to you or someone you know if they’re young. my cousin’s wife is 33 and she had a stroke last year
I’ve had a stroke. It happens to people, and the more you know about this kind of stuff, the better.Because it could be important to know.
LIVE SAVING. WOOOAHH. REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG
Had a family member almost die of one, so signal boosting because you never know when you could save a life.
Had a stroke.
Couldn’t string a coherente sentence. I could walk fine.
So remember this!
I’m so terrible with comics. As you can see I’m lazy. Anyway my human!garrus featuring Nyla Shepard! Then Shep went to go do the do with Garrus.
Are you actually trying to tell me how to identify right now? Seriously?
Listen. I’m all for using the language that people prefer, and I would never purposefully refer to someone else as “disabled” (or anything else) if they didn’t want me to do so. I’ve got friends who prefer person-first language, friends who prefer “handicapped”, etc., etc. I will always do my best to use the language that someone prefers, regardless of whether or not I would use that language to describe myself.
But you don’t get to tell me how I should identify, nor do you dictate what language is acceptable for me - a disabled woman - to use when referring to myself.
I am not “handicapable”, friend.
I am disabled.
I have literally never met a disabled person who uses handicapable. Not once. This bitch needs to pipe the fuck down and have a seat.
"handicapable" is so fucking condescending
"Oh, I’m so handicapable! I’m here to be inspirational for you! I’m differently-abled!”
Fuck you and your internalized ableism, anon.
yeah, sorry, but fuck anon. If I EVER refer to myself as handicapable, please shoot me, as I have been replaced by a PC-pod person.
I really hate that word, sounds really obnoxious. If ever I use it for myself, I give you permission to come and kick my behind!
Tell them they did something wrong.
It happened twice in less than a month. I guess I said something wrong, but I have no idea what it is. So I’m rethinking everything I dared to write. Over and over. It’s not fun.
I barely try to communicate anymore and I’ve thought about deleting my account.
I haven’t because my life doesn’t orbit around one person, but it doesn’t mean it’s not painful.
