Hopefully it was just a migraine. Having a stroke is horrific.
    Yeah at the ER they did a ct scan of my head and a chest xray. The hospital they took me to specializes in strokes which is why they took me there. They said they didn't see any evidence of stroke.

    I also experienced another event this morning much smaller but my vision started to go funky and my wife said I was slurring my words for about 10 minutes. Weird thing is inside my head I thought I was talking just fine. This time she had me lie down on the bed immediately and close my eyes and I rested. While I was resting my body spacial awareness went away. I had a moment where I couldn't tell where my hands were even though they were resting on my chest.

    Then it all cleared up and I was exhausted, cold, and hungry. I got under a blanket and started to fall asleep even though I just woke up from a full nights rest and it is like 80 degrees out.

    At this point we have no idea what is going on except that I need to go see a neurologist. It could very well be an ocular migraine that is what I am hoping. All the other things are much worse.

    If the stroke was negative I'm betting migraine. I've lost feeling in my hands before basically almost passing out as my first ocular migraine kicked in. Everything was blurring and I felt detached.

    Been dealing with patellar tendonitis in my left leg for a while now, along with tendonitis in my hip. Now the foot on the same leg is having pain and various issues. Add to that, and my prostititis that hasn't reared it's damn head in 10 years decides to come back with a vengeance.

    I'm only 33 and my body is falling apart. I thought I had until my 40s when this shit starts to happen, damnit.

    I can deal with the problems themselves; I've had my share of medical issues my whole life, but the thought that "this is it, this is officially when i'm "older" and now there's no turning back" is depressing as hell.

    It's not the age, baby, it's the mileage. I'm 43 and I've been fucked up for 17 years. I was hurt and managing to deal with it since I was a teenager, but there comes a point when your body says "lol, nope."

    Hang in there.

    It's appreciated. Can't be too surprised given my family's medical history. I suddenly understand why my grandparents needed pill counters. Not so funny to joke about anymore lol.

    Been dealing with QL issues for the past 2 years, thereabouts, now. I attribute it to a mix of injuries to my back and knee during high school football, of which it's highly probably I started playing again too soon. Either way, get some nights where my right side may as well be paralyzed from the bottom of my ribs to my knee and it fucking sucks.

    Quite the opposite, actually. I recently lost 29 lbs. 6ft, 204lbs. Been lifting for almost 4 years. Finally at a point where my six-pack is starting to show. My body just decided to do what Mallister said; "lol nope".

    You can always make up a badass story or tell people that they should see what the other guy looks like.

    I've been working all day on this transcript of an interview with an alleged rape victim in an ongoing investigation and, aside from the contents being terrible to stomach, the quality of the raw transcript I got is abysmal. Three guys working on that and, apparently, the guys doing the transcript thought the speakers were cavemen, that's what the English looks like, at least, and the proofreader was either drunk or high, I don't know, but I need to get this out tonight and have no time to return it to them for further reworking.

    I'll fix this myself, but I won't pay a single cent until they send me a proper transcript; I don't care that I won't even need it at that point.

    One of the newly promoted managers at work has no common sense. She's been doing it for about 2 months now, and yesterday was just another bit of proof against her. Closed out one of the morning shift workers so the drawer would be available for somebody on the night shift. Theatre concession register starts with $100. Her idea of getting the drawer ready? 3 Twenties, 7 fives, and $5 in dimes, nickels, pennies (no quarters).

    Been trying to sell my boss's old monitor (LG 34UM95-P) for a fucking month and have only been getting lowball numbers. It's in perfect condition and I can't stand having it sit around my goddamn apartment.

    Fuck craigslist, fuck letgo, and fuck shitty buyers.

    what are you asking? because that things $1000 on amazon; for that kind of money i could get a mid-range 55" or 65" and still have money to spare. or start building my gf a whole desktop; that's just over half what i'm planning on budgeting.

    Speaking of fail and CL. Ad for a GTX 1080 at $350. Contact seller and he responds around 4PM. Texting constantly setting a meet up as it's about 1hr 45min away from me. Says he's on the way and should be about an hour. That was at 7PM EST. Got home recently. Guess what I do not have in my possession....

    Started around 450, would have taken 300-350 easily. Had a buyer in my building for 250 but he bought something else while I waited for another buyer to schedule payment/pickup.

    It's going for 350 for parts on ebay and 400-500 in excellent condition (which mine is)
