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...

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.
