On October 9, 2022, I was 26 years old and had a stroke.
I was taking a nap, and I woke up to go to the bathroom. While in the bathroom, I suddenly got very dizzy and lost feeling on my right side. Before I could think of calling for help, I collapsed. I want to share my story so that others can learn of the warning signs as strokes are not just for those you would consider elderly. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, one in four adults over the age of 25 will have a stroke in their lifetime.
