Re: Family worried about my short-term memory
Just wanted to pop in here and assure you that your issues are quite common following stroke. I have had the same effects with my speech following 4 strokes 7 years ago now.
While there has been huge improvements in the last few years, I still speak in gibberish much of the time.
Actually, my family has always treated it with laughter, because most of the word twisting is really funny. If a stranger were to be eavesdropping, they might now be able to understand my language, but my family understands every bit of it, no matter what word I am using, the idea still comes across.
After LOTS of practice here on the HealthBoards, I have overcome my typing errors pretty well, but my speech is just funny.
I hope you find the answers you are looking for.
