It was a Friday. I never brought in goodies to work. This Friday will start out different. I bought 2 dozen donuts for our department and anyone else that wanted one. I made sure I bought some bavarian creme, since that is the only donut I would crave whenever I went in for Dunkin Donuts coffee. Well after 2 hours I noticed almost every donut was gone except the bavarian! So I had a second one. 1 hour later I took the last bavarian creme. No lunch today! At the end of the morning my right arm fell limp to my side and I couldn't lift it up again. Then this eery sensation started creeping up my entire right side. My co-worker came into the office and noticed my strange look. Long story short I was having a stroke. By the grace of God I worked directly across Doctors' Hospital in Sarasota and I was attended to immediately. I had suffered a stroke, secondary to diabetes. I didn't even know I was diabetic. DON'T TAKE THAT SECOND DONUT. You may get more than you bargained for. I was lucky with no long after effects because I got immediate attention. A stroke can have devastating long-term effects. Not worth the risk. Be healthy, be wise, don't take a chance. You may regret it.
