this was the first time it happened . . . it just kinda freaked me out because it happened very suddenly and i am always a bit paranoid that i am going to wind up having a stroke . . . i am usually under large volumes of stress (although unless it is an unusually high level, the stress doesn't bother me too much) and i am always busy beyond reason and i tend to ignore things until they are not ignorable anymore (i know i shouldn't do this, but i do) . . . my aunt, who also has lupus, had a stroke when she was my age (she was also a "i'm not gonna slow down kind of person) and i know that sudden numbness, tingling, weakness, etc. can be symptoms/precursors of a stroke . . . fortunately it hasn't happened since . . . really looking forward to january tradeshow season, though . . . atlanta & dallas! even if it is "cold" by southern standards, it will be a heat wave for me, who is currently stuck in the frozen, sub-zero, semi-artic tundra of wisconsin . . . maybe my hands and feet will thaw for a few days ;)
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
