Learn as many stroke symptoms as possible so you can recognize stroke and save a life!

Lifestyle risk factors such as diet and exercise are part of controllable risk factors.

*My father had a massive stroke on May 4, 2017 and died on May 21, 2018. He never drank or smoked. He was working at 84 when it happened, so he was still active. But he did have undiagnosed AFIB that led to his stroke and tortuous death. Corso’s was less severe but still life changing. Go to and start changing any behaviors that could lead to a stroke. Trust me, you do not want to end your life like my dad did.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
