Guest blogger Carla Langridge is a 76 year old personal trainer who can run rings around her grandchildren. She is still working more actively than most, was an opera singer in her youth and is a force to be reckoned with.
Luckily my voice didn't fail me and I yelled and screamed 'Help' for some minutes. Someone eventually heard me and next stop was Bunbury Regional Hospital.
In the ambulance I willed my arm and leg to work and after about 15 mins I was able to wriggle fingers and toes. The rest of the day was spent in ER undergoing all possible tests.
I was still filled with total disbelief that I had suffered a stroke. I felt humiliated and cheated. Personal trainers, Pilates and Spin instructors don't have strokes. But they do!
