Redo the First Time
Aphasia makes it hard to tell my stories. I read the story and it looks great. The next day it doesn’t make sense. Feeling my stories seem like I am doing a lot. It is hard. But I don’t give it enough to resend my stories again before I send them on my website.
Last week, I found the story that someone wrote about “Challenge of Aphasia – When You Can’t Back to the Life You Had – When You Can’t Back to the Life You Had”. They told us that “the old way is gone, and it’s ok to miss it”. That makes sense. It makes me sad but it makes me harder to do different things and ways to do what I can.
The first day I found out about Aphasia, and I could not talk much. I immediately called Amazon and ordered Flash Cords for “First Words” for 4+ age. My wife worked with me to go over words starting with just ten cards. It started with ant, cat, and dog. I knew the word, but I could not say them. We went over at least three times every day. I went over them again. Eventually, I started to get better. After one year, I can see over 50 of the 54 letters. Sometimes I need to think it over before it comes up.
My problems are getting better. My conversations can take some work. It is not easy to just have a long discussion. I have been to get together with friends. It is getting better to have those discussions with me. We talk about my friends that I worked with them and friends from high school and college. I keep away from talking about politics, but we are okay with sports and golf.
A few months ago, I first started a website. On GoDaddy, I started www.aphasiarocks.com. It was their simple way to start. Recently, I learned about WordPress that allows you to add your own website. I started learning in tutorials. A new website is www.aphasia-rocks.com and is more fun for me. Regardless of whether it is good or not, I learn every day to exercise language on Aphasia.
Every day, I learn something on computers to remember that I used to know something before I had a stroke. Now I find out on YouTube or tutorials and learn it again. Lately, I learned about iMovie to add a YouTube about me. I wanted to talk about how hard it is to learn about aphasia. Watch it. It shows what I need to make progress.
First Time (I Needed Help)
The areas as stroke and the aphasia from that have been working hard (I know I say that all the time). One of the earliest Aphasia stories started with the Challenge of Aphasia – When You Can’t Back to the Life You Had. For me, the wrong that made importantly was hearing “The old way is gone, and it’s ok to miss it.”
It started with similar words learning about ant, cat, and dog from Flash Cards. I knew what the words were but it didn’t turn into something I said. My wife went through every day. Today I can see all of the 50 of all the 54. Now the language is much better.
There is a lot to do with learning how to have a long conversation based on something I would like to discuss. Whether it is about politics, sports, or my golf game.
Recently I started a new website learning about WordPress which was learning about the one I started with GoDaddy. I am working on a website on www.aphasia-rocks.com to learn stuff. It gives me learning about tutorials and figuring out to turn them into something new.
Lately, I learned about iMovie to add a youtube about something about what is probably the hardest for me. Write now I can’t have a conversation like I used to when I was the Head of Compensation and Benefits to talk about stuff. Watch it. It shows what I need to make progress to make progress.
