Stroke's are hitting a lot of folks for some reason right now...
one of my customer's stepdad had a clogged artery in his neck...
he was supposed to be taking High Blood Pressure Meds,
and Cholesterol Meds...but wasn't because they upset his stomach.
So he had a stroke last week also. Neck vein was heavily clogged.
He can barely talk and is paralyzed on his right side...only 49 years old.

Once you get a HBP diagnosis, it's really important to take the meds,
and have all your arteries checked...and yeah, that part hurts.
Catheter inspection is a royal pain...but it can save your life!
The bruises only last for a few days

Also very important is a serious change of diet. Backing off all the
bad stuff...which tastes so good! Cheese & fatty foods have to be reduced.
Sucks, but you either wanna live longer, or ya don't!

Prayers sent, Stroke's are a tough recovery road!

Ride paranoid. Don't let anything distract you.
Keep the paint side up, wear the lid & leathers.
