Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) has seemingly been left with “serious mental health” concerns and issues and quite often cannot understand what is being said to him by other people in the wake of the stroke which nearly cost the man his life late last year.
It has been reported by The New York Times that Fetterman has to make use of live audio-to-text transcription software for basically everything that the Senator does.
The report indicated that Fetterman’s struggles are much worse when he is being put under any sort of stress.
Fetterman has indicated that when he is put under much stress, trying to understand what many other people are talking about is like “trying to make out the muffled voice of the teacher in the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, whose words could never be deciphered,” explained the report.
The report has been issued in the wake of the hospitalization of Sen. John Fetterman just a few days ago after feeling extremely lightheaded while taking part in a Democrat Senate retreat.
The staff working with Fetterman made the claim that doctors expressed that he did not suffer yet another stroke and that they were checking for the possibility that the man had possibly undergone a seizure.
The recently published report highlighted that the stroke which took place last year has ended up taking a “very real psychological toll” on the Democrat Senator and that he has “had to come to terms with the fact that he may have set himself back permanently by not taking the recommended amount of rest during the campaign.”
The campaign office for Fetterman officially made public a statement this past Friday night in which they claimed that a series of medical tests from his most recent health-related incident ended up coming back negative.
“A few minutes ago, Senator John Fetterman was discharged from The George Washington University Hospital,” explained the statement released by the campaign team. “In addition to the CT, CTA, and MRI tests ruling out a stroke, his EEG test results came back normal, with no evidence of seizures.”
“John is looking forward to spending some time with his family and returning to the Senate on Monday,” concluded the recently released statement.
