Wear Red Day is Friday, February 5, 2021

 

Women are usually the ones to care for our family and friends. We urge them to see a doctor when sick, accompany them if needed, make sure they are eating healthy meals, and, yes, make them soup when they’re sick.

But, we are also the ones who often fail to make sure we go to the doctor or care for ourselves. 

 

 

Wear Red Day has morphed into Go Red for Women. It is less about wearing red but more about educating others about the risks and symptoms of cardiovascular disease and stroke in women. 

 

Make yourself aware of the warning signs and symptoms of a heart attack and stroke. Share them with your friends. 

 

Were you aware that heart disease is the #1 killer of women?

 

If you have a personal story, share it with your friends because as you know, so many of us still have the It can’t happen to me attitude.

Rocky Dickerson and we can't forget that women's symptoms are often different from a man's. 

Wayne Martin if we can save on person then it will be worth it. 

Sharon Lee I so agree. We can't skip our checkups especially now.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS at my surprise birthday party a few years ago, after we were seated, they told me that my brother and sister-in-law weren't there because she was in the ER with a heart scare. She ever gets sick!

Chris Ann Cleland that's one heck of a way to meet someone!!!!

Carol Williams most of the women I know put others first but it takes one scare and you wake up. 

Thank you Ron and Alexandra Seigel I am concerned because so many men and women have been putting off going to the doctor because of the virus.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker and it has been for many years. We have to take better care of ourselves. 

You are so right Michael Jacobs When Larry had his heart issue many years ago it took 4 months to track it down. I finally stepped in and the doctors discovered he had 99% blockage and needed 2 stents.

Debe Maxwell, CRS believe it or not, our neighbor was supposed to fly to Wisconsin to spend Super Bowl Weekend with friends. Just as he was headed to the airport, he got a text from his friend that his wife was in the ER with what they fear was a heart attack. 

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist Well, you beat me by one...I am wearing my only red top!!!

I guess 'm late to the party... Never the less, if you feel something is wrong, call the doctor right away. Unfortunately, most doctors will call you back a week later, asking you ON THE PHONE since live in person appointments are scheduled ONLY if you say something like: My finger is starting to turn blue...

Dear Kathy,

On that day, wear red. And on all other days, eat real food, move your body often, get enough sleep & laugh with those around you.

Those observations about women being the caregivers, who often neglect their own care, is so very true.

Love this post - both to serve as the reminder it is intended...but I also try to wear red on Fridays whenever possible.  My fiance is a Veteran - and it serves as another reminder on that front.  Remember. Everyone. Deployed. ♥

Thank you for this reminder...women do need to take care of themselves first because, when you think about it, if we don't how can we care for our families? Also, wearing red on Fridays is also in honor of our service members who are currently deployed.  R emember E  veryone D eployed   Stay safe out there, everyone!
