Stroke is such a complicated event to go through. It has been almost eight years for me and it wasn't until tonight that I realized that I fall under this category of aphasia. I was reading an article in Stroke Connections about an actress that had a stroke and what she was going through. Suddenly, I could put a title to what has been going on all this time with me. I went and looked up the word aphasia at Dictionary.com to see if it applied. And guess what? It did. Anyway, I'm relieved there is a name to it but then I'm scared in a way to fall under this category because there are so many misconceptions.
