In Topic: Kris Letang Suffers Stroke

08 February 2014 - 01:04 AM



A few years ago I had a stroke, at a young age, while being a very active athlete...  Teddy Bruschi (NE Patriot) had one while I was in recovery.  Mine was major but I thankfully regained a ton being young, athletic and just plain stubborn.  


It's a scary thing to have happen!  I mean very scary.


I am very happy to see Letang have a chance of resuming his career as did Teddy Bruschi.  I have permanent damage and look hammered drunk when I walk.


I hate seeing stroke gain popularity, but it IS growing, and cringe every time I read it.

In Topic: Franzen having trouble processing information

I read this topic when it first was posted and got a little bit angry after reading some of the reactions to this news.


I've never had a concussion (that I knew of) but can relate in my own way.


At 27, I had a major stroke.  Possibly sports related, possibly not?!


I have a symptom called Aphasia that SUUUUUUUUCKS!  It's like a logjam in my brain and the only way to fix it is to take a step back and relax.  If Franzen has something similar, I can sympathize and only dream that his ailments go away.  


Don't know why I just shared this, but personally I feel a bit better that I have.


That's all, carry on   :cheesy:

I thought I had imagined that when there was no big deal made on FSD. Glad I'm not crazy! 



ME TOO!!!!!! I saw that and screamed, but thought 'i guess he hit it with his arm or something' because it wasn't highlighted immediately...


Beautiful save!
