This Is My Story And I’m Sticking To It, On February 12th, 2008 I woke up this particular morning I wasn’t feeling my best I was sweating really bad I had to use the restroom I sit there for about 20 minutes I got up went back and laid down for another 10 minutes I was feeling terrible sweating even worse then So I say to my Wife I think we better call 911 Medic comes they check me out of course all the stuff they might need is not on there truck so they transport me to CMC Pinevile there after a battery of test they originally thought I might be suffering from Vertigo but it was later diagnosed after a MRI & CAT Scan that I had a Stroke of to Cerebellum.( A Cerebellar Infarct or Cerebellar Stroke isa type Cerebrovascular event involving the posterior cranial fossa, specifically the cerebellum. Impaired perfusion reduces oxygen delivery and ccauses deficits in motor and balance control. I told a friend I got luck he told me no you’re ”Blessed”. When something happens like this you needle the help of your Nurses, your Doctors, and of course ”God”.I wouldn’t have made it without this wonderful team because most strokes can be debilitating because most of the time there is now bouncing back and usually a stroke happen in 2’s. I was truly spare life so now I don’t take life for granted I watch everything and I take care of myself where before I didn’t, I monitor my Blood Pressure, I eat well, I exercise, I stick to my diet,I stay fit meaning I keep the pounds off. So in February of 2010 I was diagnosed with TYPE 2 Diabetes so when we talk about February being Black History Month literary is for me”To God Be The Glory” I just wanted to share share some of my testimony I’m trying to be a Dr, just giving a little advice on what I was face with & dealing with, Short story then I’m going to close the night I was feeling ill my Wife noticed I had been laying around all day very hydrated so she called my Daughter to come check on me she get’s there and say’s Daddy what’s up me nothing but you’re not feeling well here’s your 2 choices either I’m going to take you to the emergency room or I’m calling 911 your choice so I wasn’t moving around like she wanted so 15 minutes later I hear sirens. Folks there’s a lot to deal with being Diabetic Dr.Phil been Diabetic 30 year’s not to mention Patti LaBelle around 25 are better they aren’t getting any special drugs than I get it’s all about Moderation and taking your prescribed medication oh yeah and Me & Patti have our own Cheat Day and she has a Sweet Potato Pie and me and her like ourself a piece of fried chicken every once in awhile.
