    A stroke at 28

    A Thai friend of mine back in LOS has recenty had a stroke.

    He's 28 years old, was about 160kgs when I last saw him and had serious sleep apnea (whatever it's called)

    I think Camel Toe met him when he bought the two stroker.

    As far as I know he's was in hospital for a month or so, released then had the stroke.
    Left side of his body is not as in control as before and he finds it hard to speak English, previously he was fluent having lived overseas.

    He was seriously obese and unhealthy. A warning to use all if we aren't taking care of ourselves.

    not good mate, but at 160 kilo and apnea, writing was on the wall,and i,m sure all the doctors would have been warning him, hope he wakes up and starts doing something about his weight while he,s young enough

    One leads to the other - good advice about watching one's health. One doesn't wake up one morning 160kgs obese.

    My mate's bird had a stroke a couple of years ago. She was only about 37 or so. Definitely not obese though, even though she's English.

    Best of luck to your friend's possible recovery, Squirrel.

    I have strokes on both sides of my family, but they happened when my releatives were in their 80s.

    I fear a stroke more than a heart attack.

    Let's all try to be healthy and and have good health.

    I knew a young broad who had acute Angina, and her tits were damn nice too.

    But I am 6', used to be 6'1" and weighed last week 68 Kilo, so I ain't fat and all systems are GO, cept a little shortness of breath once in awhile.
    Well to be truthful, a little shortness of dick too, ain't quite 10".

    Unfortunately a stroke can happen to anyone at any time.

    I sincerely hope your mate recovers 100% and best he does lose some weight otherwise a heart attack is on the cards.

    I'm told he has lost some significant weight in the last few months.

    I know he was under a lot of stress due to work and family as well. I imagine that added to it.

    Makes you think about all those fat bastards that come to holiday in Thailand and get all worked up either through stress or sex. Why do we not see more of them pinning little skinny girls to the bed?

    All the best to your friend in his recovery ,, its a salutary warning to all of us , me included in the overweight bracket allthough I do cycle 3.5 miles to work everyday , dont drink or smoke and have regular blood pressure tests .
    One of my workmates has recently had a stroke at 45 yrs overweight but never had a fag out his mouth poor buggers been in a coma now for 5 weeks and is waiting to come out to have 3 blood clots removed.
    For the grace of God ( or whoever ) go the rest of us.
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Can't really see that as becoming a weight loss craze in America,not without decent public health care system.

    Blood pressure and strokes are related.

    Stress or cholesterol, it needs checking regularly and if need be treated.

    Hope your mate gets back to normality soon Q.
