A few days ago I experienced a major stroke. It was bad enough to knock me violently off my feet. Twenty four hours later, all evidence for the damage it caused was gone. When I discussed this with someone at church I discovered that, on the same day I experienced my stroke, another member of the church experienced a stroke and died immediately. I was really hurt to hear that.

This topic warrants a more thoughtful discussion. I discuss in detail my experience with strokes, starting with my first. I compare my experience with my wife's. Apparently both of us took a long time to recover from the damage done by the first stroke. All subsequent strokes in both our bodies showed that the body apparently learned how to prepare for strokes so recovery was quick and complete. The fact that recovery on my recent one was so quick is an amazing tribute to my body's ability to prepare for them.
I believe that for long-lived humans, strokes are necessary and beneficial. I explain that point of view in the talk.

Fear is a common emotion most people experience when thinking about stroke. This emotion might make it impossible to experience a stroke safely. However, my wife and I have experienced many by now and are no longer afraid of them. How were we able to change that emotion? I believe the symbols helped.
