Ang stroke ay isang pinsala sa utak na nangyayari kapag ang daloy ng dugo sa utak ay nagambala o labis na nabawasan. Ang utak ay nakukulangan ng oxygen at mahalagang nutrisyon, at ang mga brain cell ay nagsisimulang mamatay sa loob lang ng ilang minuto. Sa kadahilanang iyon, ang stroke ay makokonsidera na isang medikal na kagipitan at kailangan ang mabilis na diagnosis at paggagamot. 

Derrame Cerebral (Stroke)


Un derrame cerebral es una lesión en el cerebro causada por la interrupción o reducción del flujo de sangre. El cerebro es privado de oxigeno y nutrientes y las células del cerebro comienzan a morir en minutos. Por ésta razón, un derrame cerebral se considera una emergencia médica y requiere diagnóstico y tratamiento inmediato.

We Had Promised Each Other We Would Never Leave One Another

For 3 years, it was forgetting just little things. He never thought anything about it as his job was very stressful. He had a mandatory work meeting down state which he went to. But he called me on the phone saying that he was lost, and that’s when I knew there was something wrong.

I found him on the side of the road; I had told him to park and stay in his car. We went home and he seemed fine for a while.

I Lost My Job But I Cannot Leave Him to Get Another

My husband and I were watching a movie, sitting on couch on a Saturday night. He said he was tired as I got up and went to the kitchen. Then he said "I have a tremendous headache," then held his hand on the left side of his face, saying "my face feels numb, funny" . . . then his head fell back. I tried to talk to him. He was screaming "Oh no!" I called 911.

It Beats You Down, Burns You Out, Worries You to Death, and Never Stops

Hello everyone! I am new to this site but not new to caregiving. This may be a little long, but I encourage you to read it. I encourage you because I know that you can relate to everything that I am going to say.....

Caregiver Wisdom: Emotional Care + Physical Care

Family Caregiver Alliance

The first Year after I started caring for my wife (two strokes at age 39 and 43 yrs) at home I thought that she was the same person I knew before the issues occurred.  I would become angry with her for “doing this to me”, when, in fact, she wasn’t doing anything  consciously.

No Longer a Daughter or a Son, But a Caretaker

My name is Hattie and in 2003 my mother had a massive stroke which left her paralyzed on her left side. It was by the grace of God that I took my three boys to see her that day―when we got there the boys ran in to see her first and came running out saying she had fallen, because she was on the floor. I ran in to the house and when I rolled her over onto her side I knew right away what had happened because her face was drawn. I called 911 and she was rushed to the hospital. That was the worst day of my life.

In My Family, It’s What We Do

When I was in the fourth grade, my mom retired from her high-powered position in order to stay home with me. She became a “bake cookies, go to the PTA meeting, host the girl scout meeting” kind of mom who never said no to anyone who needed help.  She was all about others and never about herself.    

When I grew up, Mama became my best friend.  She was the one I called to talk to about everything and about nothing. She spoiled our kids rotten and giggled while she did it. She was selfless and her grandchildren were her world.  That’s the mama I remember.
