Now I know, I wish I did not.

 

It appears I had suffered a mini stroke at the end of January. After subjecting myself to 20 below win chill everyday 8 feet in the air and pushing myself to work in brutal and dangerous environment in high stress environments after a exhausting year in 2014.

 

That explains why my left eye was blind for a while and becoming increasingly temperamental this year. I am still alive but it has left me very cold inside. Thing is, no one cared. Second time I have evaded death.

 

I still have to work, regardless. Conferring with UMASS for advancements towards Arboriculture work.

 

Will be 90 today, I have to tend to my customers properties.

 

I wish you all the best.

Please be careful and take all precautions.
What has your doctor said about the situation?

At the moment I am in the clear. Further testing is required as to the extent of the damages incurred.

 

I had a feeling something was different. I understand why now.

Dude, that is some scary stuff! It sure changes your life with a happening like that. When I had a stroke, my vision blurred for a few days then returned. Did you experiance any longer term effects from it?

Wow Jesse...be careful!  Dad had some mini-strokes years ago.  The effects went away after a couple years.  Hope yours go away as well.

take care, i know its hard but pace yourself, I was in good health up until 2 yrs ago. I had a mild stroke, even today I want to get out there and get er done but exhaust quickly, I don't mean tired I mean I have to lie down now!!! I hope that your health improves, I have found I had to adjust my routines and have a nap in the afternoon so I can finish my day, you may have to find out what works for you, above all keep active, eat well, and get a good nights sleep

Sure sucks getting old.


But it beats the alternative! You have to take care of yourself and don't be afraid to use a reasonable amount of over the counter pain relievers. I take atleast 2 asprin per day and they help alot. I have high cholesterol. I take a statin drug for that and the asprin for pain and to prevent a heart attack. Do what you need to do to keep yourself healthy. Good Luck, Rick

When the doctor(s) finish their assessment, make sure to take their advice.  I hope you can regain any lost abilities quickly.  

 

Take care.

YES,,, please take care... I know when I go to the cabin by myself I think about my health and safety.... ( No phone,, and 14 miles to the nearest hospital  getting there myself )  I'm very cautious about the chain saws and ladders...
