Looking back, maybe I should have seen the signs. Here are a few selected tweets from the week prior to my stroke:

June 23:
Right after warmup, I felt very dizzy and nauseated, so I lay down on the weight room floor for a few minutes…

June 24:
Quite dizzy for no apparent reason, although the base of my skull is sore. Either attacked by ninjas or suffering a mild brain fever.

June 24:
Perhaps really stiff neck & back muscles are cutting off the blood flow to my brain. GIVE ME A NECK MASSAGE, INTERNET. …damnit.

June 25:
I seem less prone to vertigo today, though the base of my skull is still sore. Perhaps the brain fever has passed.

June 25:
Am having completely irrational notions that I’m about to stroke out and suffer brain damage. But that might actually be good for me.

June 26:
The base of my skull still hurts. Also: sleepy.

June 27:

June 28:
Still dizzy. The base of my skull hurts, but only on the left side. Improvement?

June 29:
At the hospital. It WAS a stroke.
