Navigating through life from a stroke and with aphasia can be a challenge. There are technologies that will help us to navigate. Such as dictation on your cell phone, Dragon software for your computer, grocery delivery, Amazon, etc. However, the advancement with technology is very useful but we must be aware of those who do not have good intentions. Just take care of yourself and watch out for the scammers. For the most part, whenever I tell people upfront that I had a stroke and please be patient with me, they are, and they allow time for me to get my words out. Sometimes my words are not clear especially when talking on the phone or with the customer service computers. It can be frustrating but don’t give up and be patient with yourself.
There are organizations with many resources to help with aphasia such as the National Aphasia Association. Also, connecting with stroke support groups and meeting new friends will make navigation with life after a stroke & aphasia a little easier.
