I am ... A Survivor

On May 22, 2009 I was affected by what I thought was a migraine attack. I was scheduled to go to a banquet that night but was unable to as the severity of what I thought was a migraine was very severe. I took a 800mg motrin and went to take a nap. I slept through the night and missed the banquet. I woke up the next morning, May 23,2009. I went to take a shower but felt rather strange. I left out the bathroom to call my mom to ask her to pray with me.  by the time she finished praying with me I was unable to get up off my knees. I felt my body falling to the left side of the bed as I was on my knees. I tried to call my tenant upstairs but was unable to get her as she was on her computer. I called out to her and she heard me and came running down to help me.  She called 911 for help and my family to let them know what happened. Much more later.
