Aphasia is an impairment of language and communication. June is National Aphasia Awareness Month.

I said odd words after my stroke. For example, I wanted to say “speech” and instead said “fleas.”

If the words coming out of your mouth are not what you intend, who’s talking?

    Makes you think, doesn’t it? I just had to think a long time to find words.

    I had a stroke in 2011 and I am still dealing with aphasia that came after. I was 32. I just want to say that I love looking at this blog from time to time. It is nice to know that you had a baby after the stroke.
