Seems that I had a stroke

don't feel sorry for me. lately I have been under alot of pressure. first my 85 year old aunt that raised me almost died, second my oldest son was shipped of to war. third my middle son broke his sholder then after the doctor fixed it with a steel rod and about 50 stitches. then when he was off on medical leave he was attacked by some people that didn't like him even with a bad shoulder he whipped there ass and got put in jail. and last our poor dog got hit by a truck the dog was alright and my middle son will be ok. so then last night I went to let the dog in and thats the last thing I remember my wife said I was gone for about 20 minuets I went to open the door a turned around to go back to the tv room and i remember falling on my face and then waking up in what I thought was just a few seconds and it had been about 20 minuets I didn'y think much about it until I couldn't speak I couldn't pronounce words at all I was worried and thought I was going to die I went to the hospital and they said I had a minor stroke. scared the shit out of me they said it was from stress. diet and a lot of other things. Guys take care of your selves and handel stress better.
P.S. I'm only 43 I thought that bway to young to have a stroke.
again don't feel sorry for me I brought this on myself.
To much wine to much song wander how i got along.

A speedy recovery. Hopefully, the only other stroke you'll have, will be one of luck.

Best wishes for a quick recovery! Man, that is a bit scary. Any medical explanations for why a 43 year old would be experiencing a stroke? Can you speak now? Good luck and keep typing. Jim

clk, best wishes to you, get well soon.

I've noticed bad things do have a tendency to come one right after another.

Try to take it easy.

We all dead in the long run after all.
