    Hello Anne,

    Excuse me asking, but, how old are you?  Someone else asks about Young Facebook contributors. Not sure what age has to do with having a stroke! Anyone, of any age, can have a stroke. When I was in hospital follwing my stroke, a young girl was admitted after her optician noticed something and called an ambulance. 

    It's a shock regardless the age of the sufferer. I was in my 70's and I'm still trying to get to grips with it.

    If I can help, in any way, please contact me on this forum.

    Pauline
