To lighten you up buddy:
There is a history of strokes, heart disease and diabets in my family, so now that I crossed that 50's mark, I decided that I should take care of
myself and watch out for any danger signs.
So....Im in the workshop truning out some stickbaits on the woodlathe, felling kinda low and yucky all that day, but the workshop always cheers me
I wear a facemask thats part of a hard-hat when turning and a dustmask if the wood dust can be hazardous. Im standing there shaving wood away and Im
as happy as a clam...
I then detect a tingling sensation at the back of my head and I think 'oh ho!' and stop the machine. The tinglings getting stronger and very slowly
making its way up my skull and I am crapping myself, so take a seat.
The sensations at the top of my head and isnt going away and I think my numbers up and that this must be what a stroke feels like, or something along
I reach up and remove the hard-hat/mask combo and the creeping sensation gets more rapid.....then I get a mental slap!!!
As I realise.........its the elastic of the face mask, under the helmet, creeping through my short hair!!!!!!!!
I know, I know....Im an idiot, but its a true story and I hope it goes a little way to shking the darkness from the situation buddy.
