August, 2024 is Bystander Awareness Month 2024. Bullying Prevention Awareness Month: Be More Than a Bystander ... Awareness Month: Be More
Know the Signs
Because stroke injures the brain, you may not realize that you are having a stroke. To a bystander, someone having a stroke may just look unaware or confused. Stroke victims have the best chance if someone around them recognizes the symptoms and acts quickly.
What are the symptoms of a stroke?
The symptoms of stroke are distinct because they happen quickly:
Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg (especially on one side of the body)
Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech
Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
Sudden severe headache with no known cause

RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank goodness 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 to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today).
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .
NOTE : Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 immediately!! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
If everyone who sees this page would send it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
Specific Rituals for Your Religion Regarding...?
Thank you for bringing the up.
The first aid everyone should know is:
Remove objects the person may hit or bang into.
DO NOT put anything in the person's mouth.
DO NOT restrain the person.
Put the person on their side to keep the airway open.
If the seizure goes on for more than a couple of minutes, or if you are frightened, call for help.
Ask bystanders to move along.
Stay with the person until fully recovered, and offer a ride or to make a call.
Note that there are over 40 kinds of seizures, and they are all quite different, so use common sense.
My faith (Judaism) has prayers for healing, none specific to Epilepsy. The best treatment/ritual/"cure" is treatment by competent doctors.
All the best.
Charting experts: tracking ovulation with an irregular period?
I also have irregular menstrual cycles and I found that checking my basal body temperature and cervical fluid each morning helps. I was told not to waste my money on an ovulation predictor kit because my cycles vary in length and I may not test during the right times. I've just read the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler, MPH. This book teaches you about fertility awareness. It shows you how to understand and track your fertile signs and is an excellent source to learn more about your body. When you know more about what is happening with your body you feel less like a bystander and more in control during doctors visits. Showing your charts to your doctor gives them a good understanding of your cycles and when or if you ovulate. It can alert your doctor to any problems you may be having. Also, if you are trying to get pregnant and have irregular cycles don't wait the 12 months to see if you get pregnant before talking to your doctor. I was told to come in for testing after only 6 months of trying because my irregular cycles and body basal charts showed signs that I was not ovulating with each cycle.
