Mine were both from clots. Unfortunately my dear husband suffered a stroke a year ago while at work, his was a bleed and for all intents and purposses he was gone before he hit the ground, he was only 58 yrs old. He did not drink, smoke, do drugs. No way to know what caused his stroke. Four days later he was gone from us as his strong heart finally gave out.

The doctors themselves were shocked that this should happen to so young a man with no history that would have led to such a thing. In the end I am just grateful for 38 wonderful years of marriage.

Stroke is indeed a very mysterious thing and seems to not pay heed to age at all.
OMG that's terrible!!

it's one of the things I do worry about. Since I am otherwise so healthy, it would also take a long time for my body to give out once I'm incapacitated. Scary!

I do wonder if another one is waiting for me out there.....

I start back to school in August and even found a nursing position that's only a few hours per shift, one or two days a week.

My neurologist said he was expecting to help me get SSDi. Me? No!!!

OP isn't the only one who had a stroke at a young age.

I had a stroke at 44. Cerebellar stroke - could have killed me. Should be in a wheelchair, but I'm stubborn, and use cane now. Speak like I'm drunk.

Youngest was 16, but already taking CNA class.

Met someone at rehab who was 30, and had stroke while in labor.
