The 4-7-8 technique and other keys to falling asleep quickly
п»ї<title>Life after stroke: our anonymous warriors</title>
There are many anonymous warriors whose names we do not know. People who have survived a stroke, people who, although a little more “broken”, know that after that blow a new stage opens up: the daily struggle, and with it that recovery that can last a lifetime.
No one emerges completely unscathed from a stroke. Life is not fair, and sometimes it doesn’t matter if you are young or have healthy habits. Stroke strikes treacherously and violently, fragmenting us. People who have managed to survive discover in their own skin that clichГ© that we sometimes say lightly that “there are moments that mark a before and an after”.
“The wound is also part of life and so is the scar that has already healed. They warn us of a past and present battle, that in a way, we are still vulnerable.”
What now? After this kind of high intensity and often serious aftermath, the person is forced to mourn. Because there is a loss: the loss of a part of oneself, of a way of life, of a face, of a body that may no longer respond in the same way.
These are hard personal battles that sometimes touch us very closely. We cannot forget, for example, that according to statistical data, stroke is the leading cause of death in women. Stroke also remains one of the main causes of permanent disability.
Those who manage to survive it must go through a series of delicate and profound stages to finally emerge as a new person. Someone stronger, someone who struggles every day with the possible consequences that fate, sometimes unfair, ironic and cruel, has wanted to bring him.
Waking up after a strokeA stroke is a sudden problem in the brain’s own blood circulation. It may involve a rupture of a cerebral vessel or a drop in blood supply. All this produces something irreversible: the death of brain cells due to the lack of oxygen and nutrients.
We know that immediacy in medical care is key, both for survival and to alleviate possible sequelae. However, we cannot forget something essential either. The impact on families, friends and people close to the affected person. Life stops for everyone. The light goes out and no one knows when or how our loved one will wake up.
Those days in intensive care are remembered by patients in a strange, turbulent, distant way. Lost in a hazy dimension and disconnected from reality, they are still oblivious to what has really happened. The awakening is slow and, of course, traumatic. However, it is necessary to act with haste. Because neurological recovery has two phases that must begin as soon as possible.
The first stage lasts six months and the brain does what it can. The objective is vital: it must restore the destroyed neuronal connections. Later, the rehabilitation stage will come, where the brain must continue to make achievements, connections, sensitivities, movements… External stimulation is needed and, of course, the patient’s will, his encouragement and the support of his personal circle.

Your heart is beating now
Thinking about the future is fine, your heart is beating now too. You cannot neglect today, the present moment.
What about now? A lifetime of recovery and struggleOne of the most common sequelae after a stroke is paralysis of a part of the body, hemiplegia. A stroke in the right hemisphere, for example, causes left hemiplegia and vice versa. Usually, various problems of speech, mobility and expressiveness that may be significantly reduced must be faced. The “half smile” will be, in many cases, a regular companion on our face.
The “what now?” is in turn joined by an eternal “why me?”. The rest of the world follows its rhythm, tireless, while ours is now a little slower and even out of tune.
However, we must be clear that it is not enough to have survived a stroke, the hardest part begins when you get home, to your environment and discover yourself alone in front of the mirror. Tears will fall like stones, but later we have to do it: we have to corner fear and move forward. And we will do it, no doubt.
Specialists in neurological recovery tell us that willpower is not everything. It is clear that each patient will face more or less severe sequelae. However, after a stroke, a multidisciplinary intervention is needed.
In addition to the patient’s will, there are doctors, therapists and multiple social agents. They are there to accompany, rehabilitate, inform and ensure that patients do not feel alone. That life goes on, that life awaits them to give them new opportunities.
How do we know if we are suffering a stroke? Here is some information to take into account:
Intense, deep headache. The most painful we have ever had.
Paralysis of a part of the body: arm and leg on the same side.
Problems to articulate words, and even to understand.
Dizziness, imbalance and incoordination.
