I am ... A Survivor

I had a TIA in Walmart one night.  My left leg was weak, I was sweating, my voice was high pitched, I was slurring my words, I was very confused, had trouble remembering where the bank was inside the store. This lasted for about 15 min. When I got back home my son took me to the hospital.  I got to the hospital within 1 hour of the TIA, was given an asprine and kept over night for observation.  I woke about 3:00 AM completly parolized on my left side!  I was not given the blood clot busting medication!
