It's because my MRI showed two historical strokes. Small, yes, and I don't think I have any symptoms. They don't know when they happened, only that they're not recent. Could be from my heart surgeries. My left hand had some tremors, somewhat severe, which for a while I put down to alcohol consumption, but found out it was probably a severe vitamin D deficiency. Been taking 50,000 units of D per week and the tremors are all but gone.

Or it could be caused by a severe lack of fishing. I can't remember that last time I went fishing. Too hot now.

Not trying to get sympathy, just trying to make excuses.

"Lately" isn't an appropriate description. Gene.

Judging someone to be acting strange requires that a baseline be established of that person's normal behavior. I've never regarded you as strange, Gene.

Uncommon. Unique. Novel.

You may realize that going to the tanning bed twice a week will give your body more usable Vit D, than oral supplements.

Gene, you've been acting strange ever since I first met you, but it has been a good strange. I truly enjoy your life stories, your sense of humor and how your brain works. Hop[e the stroke s turn out to be a non-issue!

So far, I think it's been a non-issue, but what do I know? I could be weird since the lovely lady at Big Butte dutch ovened me in a moment of passion.

I've been going to the tanning bed maybe not twice a week. I burn easily. It is boring but seems to get me some benefits.

Gene,
Just do what the professional medics tell you to do. Those of us here are useful for encouragement, sympathy and mockery only...not necessarily 100% valid for physical treatment...but the price is reasonable.

HHmmmmm.. I'm with you CN, except mine has another 3 years or so to wear off.
