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.


While taking my first aid courses we were taught something similar. It was F.A.S.T. F for face- one side should droop a bitA for arms- raise your arms and look for them being uneven S for speech - ask them to say a simple sentence T for time - you record the time it happened because it could be vital for doctors to know. It’s basically the same just in a different way to remember if the first method didn’t stick.

"we almost dated" is such a weird relationship to have with someone

Plus the sequel “we never got closure”

And then the side adaptation “as a result I have a weird crush that never died”

can be saved,
the lives of Black men

" but responding to racism with more racism won’t get us there. You disgust me. I’m sorry that white people have hurt your ancestors, but you deserve the worst of the worst for being a racist."

So, if I’m understanding this right…
White people enslaved Black people for centuries, but we aren’t allowed to be upset about it.
Black people built this country while enslaved, but we aren’t allowed to be upset about it.
Black people were medically experimented on AKA tortured, but we aren’t allowed to be upset about it.
Black people were released from slavery only to be segregated, restricted, further dehumanized and sent back into legal slavery AKA incarceration, but we aren’t allowed to be upset about it.
Black people are Public Enemy Number One, but we aren’t allowed to be upset about it.
The genocide of Black people never stopped, it was just legalized. But we aren’t allowed to be upset about it.
So you’re saying, anon, that despite all of these things, we’re still not allowed to have feelings?
k. Just checking.

You can keep bitching about poor people “pulling themselves” up by their bootstraps, but they can’t pull it up if they have no shoes to begin with. 
The same applies to all marginalized and underprivileged groups.
