I had a stroke on June 8, 2020. It has been a long time for me. Every day makes me a great day.

Tell me stories about Aphasia

Retired HR /

Penn Stater

In June 2020, I had a stroke. 

I found during the hospital stay that I had aphasia. Aphasia is a condition that limits my ability to speak and to read or write. I am lucky to be alive, but it isn’t easy.

I have trouble finding the words to come up with the language. Sometimes I have almost got it, but not just right. Sometimes if I say the “alphagaties” (no such word!!!) it tells me to find “alligator”.

As an executive in Human Resources, I talked a lot. After Aphasia I don’t talk much.

I will learn to restart the language for me.

I look forward to hearing from you.


"Aphasia is working hard, and every day it gets better. Don't stop. Get better".


My Aphasia Language

I tried to learn something new in each story to work on what I had trouble speaking. Many of these are fun to remember and learn how to write again.
