What is a stroke?

A stroke is a medical emergency that occurs when blood flow to the brain is blocked. Once an artery is blocked and the brain is unable to receive the necessary nutrients and oxygen, brain cells are damaged or die. Depending upon the area of the brain that is damaged, a stroke can cause long-term impairment, disability, or even death.

What are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety becomes a mental health issue when it begins to impact a person’s daily life and their ability to live their life fully. Did you know that anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental illnesses? In 2013, an estimated 3 million Canadians (11.6%) aged 18 or older reported they had a mood or anxiety disorder. An anxiety disorder is a chronic condition characterized by excessive symptoms of uneasiness, worry, and even fear that negatively interferes with an individual’s ability to function calmly. When anxiety persists or stops a person from participating in everyday activities, it may be due to an anxiety disorder.

Having a stroke may make it impossible for an individual to return to the way they were living before the incident. In some cases, it may result in permanent paralysis, and/or physical and cognitive impairment like dementia.  Therefore, it is critical that the individual get immediate medical attention.

People may have an increased risk for having a stroke if they have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or if they smoke. Strokes can also occur as a result of other physiological and biological causes such as old age and family history. Additionally, older individuals are more likely to have a stroke, with individuals over the age of 55 being twice as likely than their younger counterparts.
