    Like the rest of you, I get this kind of stuff occasionally, but I hadn't seen this one before...

    It only takes a minute to read this..
    STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters....S.T.R

    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
    Thank God for the sense to 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 * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (I.e. 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 999/911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

    New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

    NOTE: Ask th e person to 'stick' out his tongue..

    If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other ,that is also an indication of a stroke.
    “Think about how stupid the average person is, and then realize that half of 'em are stupider than that.” -George Carlin

    My grandfather lingered in the netherworld of stokeland for 2 years.

    Kev, you're a mod, can you not pin it? Or at least consult someone who can?

    Fine post, worth permanence.

    Thanks for tip j2k4
    my mom had one 2 years ago. Turned out ok, since it was taken care of immediately.

    A friend 28years old went out to party, he managed to pick up a hawt one night stand.
    They fucked hard all night (added in order to diminish concentration loss)
    In the morning she woke, he did not react, his eyes where open.
    She could have simply left....
    Instead she called a few numbers on his mobile phone. We got an ambulance.
    He is still unable to speak & walk properly, but he has adapted to his new way of life.

    j2k4, could you post a link to the original info, just for added anti hearsay like...

    Tragic story Bazzla.
    The worst thing with strokes is that they *suddenly* happen out of no where.

    boom
