You think you’ve got it bad…let me tell you, you haven’t seen nuthin’ yet!
On 12/10/05 my life, what I thought, took a turn for the worse
I had a massive stroke, a bleed in the brain -- a hemorrhagic stroke. Only 30% survive the first 72 hours. I spent over two months in the hospital. Re-learning how to walk and talk. When I checked-out, I was in a wheelchair and could only answer “yes” to every question – although I meant “no”. I kid you not! That was about over six years ago. Now I walk, sometimes, with help of a cane, can get my arm level with my head, and my speech has improved 124.452%! Wowwie! My speech therapist challenged me with this statement: "You know, David, why not try stand-up comedy or improv...to reach a new audience? Besides, I like your jokes...when you can get them out." (Funny, that Natalie.) Anyway, I've decided to become a stand-up comedian. After 30 months, I’m getting pretty good at this. Plus, I’m performing around SF Bay Area.
