My Aphasia


My name is Bernice.
I am 78 years old.
I have four sons, Dean, Chad, Kelly and Steven.
I had a massive stroke on the 12th of December, 2012.
I was in Arizona. It happened while I was sleeping.
Darryl woke up, saw me and knew something was wrong.
I was in hospitals in Arizona and back in Edmonton for several months.
I had a nurse who said I was broken.
I felt determined to get better.
I went to a lot of courses everywhere.
What I want people to know about aphasia is:
Please be patient.
