Had my stroke in 2001 while having quadruple bypass surgery in London. I have aphasia, incontinence, memory problems and cognitive problems. I am a CA and no longer know numbers. I used to read a lot. I no longer can read or use the computer. My wife is doing this for me. I sleep a lot because of boredom. I go to Hardy Hearts twice a week at KW hospital. Cardiac Rehab Centre. Physically, I am well. I have a scrambled brain. I was very happy to see the photo in the paper of Frank Austin and again trying to explain to the world what aphasia means. My hearing is also affected and a hearing aid is not helping at the moment. I am interested in talking with others with aphasia.
