Training & Seminars / Re: STROKE HAS A NEW INDICATOR.

 Thanks Chief for that information. I will pass it on as well.

 A few years ago I suffered a minor stroke. I knew something was wrong because I noticed it when I said something. I asked other people if they noticed anything different in the way I talked and they said "no".

 But soon, I just didn't feel right. Somebody had a blood pressure cuff around and when I took my B/P in one arm it was okay. But my pulse was way up. Then I took it in the other arm and it was very high. I knew I had to go to the hospital. I might be having a stoke.

 When I got to the hospital, all the indications were there of a stroke. The ER Doctor then asked me how I got there. I didn't hesitate to tell him: "I drove here". He wasn't too happy about that. He told me I could have caused a serious accident and hurt others as well. He said next time make sure I call 9-1-1 and get an ambulance.

 I guess I was just very lucky that day. It could have been MUCH WORSE for both myself and innocent people on the road. The doctor also told me it was a sign of bigger and better things to come if I didn't take better care of myself.

 Today, the only side effect I was left with, is once in awhile I drool from one side of my mouth - but nothing else. I'm sure we all know of friends or even family members who have suffered serious strokes. 

 As it says in the previous post; "if you email this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life".
