"Minor stroke" sounds like a rather monstrous oxymoron Dice, LOL! Glad you're ok dude. I bet too much exposure to RGB was a factor.

Appreciated thanks bud, And one can never have too much RGB !!!!

I still have all my senses, No drooping face, No loss of any muscles, No loss of mental functions or anything, Only issue right now is the numbness in a few fingers on my left hand so I'm pretty lucky IF it truly was a minor stroke.

Oh well, Life goes on
Do me a favour and stop listening to all that crap about sweeteners and god knows what else dude.

I can absolutely promise you that I've cut out every single last one to the point I was drinking nothing but water and it made absolutely no difference at all.

Most humans have strokes. Like, small ones in the back of the brain. I can't remember what they are now but they rarely cause any real damage. Real strokes though are bad. Take care of yourself, man. Like I said, if you listened to most of the crap going around you wouldn't even be able to breathe.

TMJ? something like that.

The thing about the sweeteners is not crap bud, I've spoken to a fair few doctors who are ardently against Aspartame as it is a neurotoxin and does cause serotonin levels to drop, Over quite some time as well as various other health problems like weight gain, Water retention etc...

Well I can tell you it made no difference to me. I probably have metabolic syndrome, but that's my problem. I can't cut out absolutely anything that gives me any pleasure at all.

I'd rather be fat and have a modicum of happiness than skinny and miserable. I am just a believer that when our time is up it's up, and nothing can stop that or prevent it.

Plenty of very healthy people die.

While I'm here I'd like to remain somewhat healthy, I like having low'ish bodyfat and a good amount of muscle, I've been overweight and it didn't feel good

I've lost two stone. By not taking pills. lol good eh?

I thought it was odd that no matter how hard I worked and rode and didn't eat much that I barely lost a stone.

Going to need something for anxiety though, mine has been atrocious. Not been at my flat much at all for the past couple of months

Yeah my anxiety was bloody horrible, Physically crippling at times, Wouldn't wish it on anyone but as I learned anxiety can be caused by a lowering of serotonin levels I've been having a lot more eggs and dairy which help boost it, Nicely working too, Also helps to have good people to talk with

Something California can relate to, we currently have 70 fires burning in New South Wales ATM with fires spotting 12km from the main front 50 of the fires are out of control and some fires have been burning for a months continuously, Queensland also has a massive amount of fires burning as well, and also in Western Australia, and we are in the worst drought on record so everywhere is just tinder dry

That last photo is absolutely insane, looks like hell on earth, are you safe where you are?
Let's hope this isn't a common sight for the next generations.
