I am a 45 year old mother of 2, a couple of weeks ago I was sitting having a conversation with my boyfriend when suddenly everything started spinning I reached out to grab onto him but it felt like something or somebody grabbed me by the shoulders and threw me on the floor. I immediatly started having a seizer losing control of my arms & legs. It lasted for about 35-40 seconds and when I tried to get up I realized that I was compleatly paralized on my left side and could not get myself up. My boyfriend drove me to the fire department where we called an ambulance. They took me to the Emergency Room where I was told it seems I had had a stroke. I was So Scared and a Computer Screen on wheels came into my room with a Doctors Face telling me hes a neurologist and had the nurses to some test holding my legs & arms etc. So the Doctor then tells me that they have the medication that will reverse whats happen to me so im thinking, Oh thank god. Then he says , we Have the medication HOWEVER YOU ARE NOT A CANIDIT TO RECIEVE IT because of your drug & alcohol history. I was devistated, embarrased, alone. So i guess if you have made not so good choices in life you dont deserve or get the same medical treatment as the perfect people in the world. Forget that I have always done what I could to help others, been a good daughter, sister, grandmother, I guess none of that counts in the world of deciding who gets medical treatment and who dont.
