Stroke: Is some one typing this question for you or are you typing with one hand or are you typing with both hands? If the latter, then you don't have a stroke or you just had a minor one and are recovering from it. If the second, then yes your front lobes were involved. If the first, you just had a very big stroke, which is bad.
