Lawrence did go to the emergency room three months ago "after the worst headache I ever could have imagined in life." Then there was that time he rushed for a flight, rose on the shuffle bus and "could barely get off, so they had to get me a wheelchair with folks freaking out around me." Then there was his blackout during a business meeting when he was told he scared a colleague by screaming to the top of his lungs, "Where's my gun? Where's my gun?" Then there was his drive home from Winter Haven, Fla., during a rainstorm that had cops banging at his car window to say he was "sitting in the middle of the road. It's a miracle I didn't run into something. I just don't remember."
Help I have a friend who is a gym goer Im not sure of his quantity or how long he has been taking steroids, but stopped recently because he had really bad neck pain. No dr or scan, ultrasound etc showed anything. Put on huge pain killer amounts didnt help alot but felt after about six weeks some relief. Until today when he thinks a prior knee issue has flared up. If this a result of steroid abuse how long before it heals? Im pretty sure he wont touch them again. He can handle all over aches and pains but these last two injuries have had him off work.
Indeed, the man whom ESPN would later find a "violent, combative player known for his short temper" inspired the league rule against throwing a helmet after having done so himself to an opponent's helmet.  Peter Alzado, Lyle's brother, later identified the years of their youth—marked by an absent, alcoholic father and an over-worked mother—as the crucible for Alzado's unremittingly fierce style of play. "That violence that you saw on the field was not real stuff," his brother held. "Lyle used football as a way of expressing his anger at the world and at the way he grew up."  Defensive end Greg Townsend , a teammate on the Raiders, contended that the savagery for which Alzado became noted represented only part of a "split personality." "Off the field," remembered Townsend, "he was the gentle giant. So caring, so warm, so giving."
