When I was diagnosed it was when I was covering three other people's jobs and had a leader that was absolutely inadequate. It was holiday season, frustrating family dynamics... developed a headache, blah, blah, blah. Developed stroke was tested for APS, was + and so on. Now I am wondering if this was just lying dormant in my body until I just couldn't take anymore and the coagulants were awakened? Anyone else feel this way? I am always wondering what brought this to the surface. I should explain I had had a TIA 28 years ago with the pregnancy of my son. That passed after delivery... he was born approx a month early and was healthy. For 28 years nothing ( no symptoms) then h-E-l-l-O, bam...as above.
