In 2014 I had a stroke in prison. Half my face was paralyzed, and I was rushed to West Valley Hospital, where a CT scan confirmed the diagnosis. I kept telling my unit provider that my blood pressure was high, but they insisted it was “in range” and prescribed no meds. After my hospital visit I was prescribed blood pressure meds, but they didn’t come for 2 days. During that 2 day time I had three more tIAs.
