What is it with brain bleeds lately?!

I just read that Gary Coleman has passed away at the age of 42 as a result of a brain hemorrhage. His was apparently a result of a fall, but this is a scary thing! And so sad. First Brett Michaels and now poor Gary Coleman. May he rest in peace.

I always thought about brain bleeds as a TV injury. I knew they could happen in real life but I don't remember hearing about them  really happening. And now 2 happened within 1 month. Just one more thing for worriers to worry about! Yep, I'm a worrier. I fully admit it. I try not to be, but sometimes I just get an idea in my head and it runs around in there, causing me to worry.  I promise, to my friends and family reading, and to all of you, that I won't seriously start worrying about brain bleeds, but it is frightening when it happens to 2 people within a short period of time. Just makes you think about how short life can be. Makes you really appreciate every minute, y'know?
