sorry to hear it jim. but like everyone else has said, glad you are ok.Well, here's my admission, I'm a pretty young guy only 43 years old.
Yesterday just after 7:20 pm I had a stroke.
I am reasonably fit, 5'10" 175 lbs. My cholesterol is normal, in the 90s. I have healthy BP and pulse, no sign of arrhythmia.
Weird right? Yes. I have no notable med history til now...now I can say, "no, just a stroke!" when asked that.
It's hard to type, especially on my iPhone (which I could barely call my GF and 911 on yesterday). I have a bit of trouble talking unless I talk slow and deliberate. The stroke got my motor functions on right side. Yesterday I was hardly intelligible and my right hand was not capable of signing my name nearly close to right.
I am blessed that my thinking is still 100%. Thank God I'm ok.
My motor stuff will come back with practice. I will tie more married wing Parmachene Belle and watch trout munch on them!
Typing is hard, I'm making too many mistakes.
Last words: call 911 FAST!!! Don't screw around. Don't wait. Time is brain - and it's way too easy to take its simplest functions for granted.
