    • I m very cautious too not catching the virus because I won’t be killed by anything made in China as a friend puts it lol. Many months later, me and my staff is still covid free. It is a miracle. Lots of prayers and meditation helps I believe. I was happy to get the first vaccine on dec 31st too. Never spent a night inside the hospital so far as a patient so no thank you. Sometimes marriage is luck or it is the choice we made and sometimes we don’t know it till one is tested. We are almost 50. I try to make the most out of life by doing good things. 
    • Have seen a patient had it after a car accident. They were on a bike/ motorcycle. But that was years ago and I still see her and she has no lasting issues. 
    • That is strange. I was absolutely fine immediately before it happened. Just driving home with no traffic about so no stress. 
    • It's interesting you mention driving. Having done some research on this, it commonly happens in exercise, driving a car, sometimes sex.  The few other people I've met who had it happen were all driving cars, weird. 
    • Thanks for all your input. That covid story really sounds difficult. Your Covid experience must have been just a terrible,terrible experience. And it makes you think how many people are going through that right now??    It's interesting you mention covid because when this "China Plague" (as Trump calls it, lol) , when this virus thing started, one of the first things that went thru my head was "dont go back to ICU!!"     I've been very cautious to not catch it and it's out of my desire to not relive that experience again.  The week on ICU when I had my initial bleed was the worst experience ever. No thank you, not again.        I remember when I was going thru all this (2 yrs ago), some people made the point that if you break your arm, you have a cast on. But when you have a significant brain injury, you appear outwardly normal.       I also remember someone telling me "if your marriage is not the best before this, it will be over afterwards. " And they correctly predicted that one!!
