Originally after my stroke, I couldn’t say anything or do much at all. I remember I couldn’t write in full sentences, just bullets. However, even 10 years after my stroke I met two very influential Speech Language Pathologists from Boston. I began working with them and my skills improved so much more and they continue to improve each day still. I think that’s the key to success; beginning speech therapy and reciting words as a drill. I am at 70% recovery and I continue to improve each day.
