I suffered a stroke, on Sunday, 21st Aug., eight days before my 60th birthday. Damn. I had been feeling crook for a while, leading up to the actual event.
Considering all that could've happened, I guess I have been lucky to escape with just a speech impairment, some weakness on the right-side, and a bloody computer-keyboard which refuses to type, and spell, correctly.
The Speech Pathologist described my condition as similar to a computer. All known words are on little files which the brain is so used to using, that it 'senses' the file which is going to be used, and gets it ready in advance. Trouble is, that there has been a major earthquake in Bobtown, and the wrong files are being prepared. I think I am going to say the correct word, then everything goes haywire.
So, I have to train the brain differently. It'll be a slow and exhaustive process.
I hope my readers will understand, and hang-in there.
