APHASIA IS A REALITY!!

Recent Activity
About Me

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.

Thanks,

Hi Ross: So you'll living in Waterloo- I'm living in Burlington, and is next door. I like to talk to you about aphasia. I can't drive so we could talk to each other via Skype. Did you have Skype in your computer. If so could you write to me your Skype address.
