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
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.
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.
