A Survivor

I'm a male, age 47 and was gifted a stroke on 11/9/2015.  

I was at work and wrapping things up.  I knew I had not eaten since early in the morning so when I became light headed I just thought it was a normal sugar plunge.  I'm not diabetic, never diagnosed with high blood pressure, cholesterol was getting better...

It was a dark, rainy evening December of 1999. My parents left, leaving my younger sister and I with our older sister to babysit.

August 31st, 2011, started out like any other Wednesday at work...until about mid-morning, when I got a sharp pain in the left side of my head and I dropped the pen I was holding from my right hand

The scariest thing when having a stroke is not knowing what's happening, but knowing that something is very wrong.

I had my first stroke in 2009 at the age of 47. the second was in 2016. Neither stroke was severe. However the last one did leave me with diminished use of my dominant hand.
