231 – “Stroke Forward” with Marcia Moran (@Stroke_Forward)

“People are more generous than you think of them.” – Marcia Moran

Today’s featured author is a stroke survivor, business consultant, and fellow Toastmaster, Marcia Moran. Marcia and I talk about her book, her journey of recovery since having a stroke and more!!


Key Takeaways:

Caregivers must give themselves time for self-care.

Always be willing to try again after not succeeding the first time.

Keep the acronym Be Fast in mind for remembering the signs of someone having a stroke.

Get as much sleep as you need. Especially as a caregiver.

BE FAST = Balance (do you have it?), eyes (are you seeing clearly out of both of them), face (is it drooping?), arm (are your arms and legs working succinctly), speech (are you slurring your words?), time (to call 911 if they have these signs)

Never give up and always be kind.
