I will not try to answer, but, will send you a link. There is much that can be researched on the topic.
I will say, it is something I hope none of you ever have to deal with. I learned of Aphasia, after my husband Steve had a stroke. Aphasia, can be caused by a fall or head trauma.
Ours, was caused by a stroke. We were one of those families, that after Steve's heart attack and surgery. We were very diligent about checking blood pressure. Eating right, exercising and doing the yearly check ups with the heart Dr.
This link to the Mayo Clinic, explains different aphasia's.
Steve has what is called fluent aphasia. To sum it up, I have no clue what he is saying, he has no clue what I am saying.
We have good days and bad days.https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/aphasia/symptoms-causes/syc-20369518
The hardest part for me has become not having anyone to talk to. Example, today the store was having a sale on outdoor carpet. He knows I want one for our porch/deck. I write porch/deck because I do not know if it is a porch or a deck. I am sure I will figure it out.
So, I ask him, "Do you like the blue one" he answers "I'm okay".
In many ways we are blessed, he is physically alright. That can also be a curse, because people do not understand why he doesn't respond to them.
So goes my day, my month, my year.
I know I have let it consume me. Even with belonging to the aphasia groups, it is still consuming me.
God, planted me right in a big beautiful mess. A mobile home that once I stopped crying, I could see has some possibilities.
Travel with me as I turn this into a home to be proud of.
