I joined a stroke support group and I am so glad that I did. I look forward for every single time I get to meet with the members of such a wonderful group. At my first encounter, I met with several people in the group. I felt at home the minute I arrived till I left. Today we had a car wash at a local car dealership. What a blast it was..!!. There was girl scouts that did the washing of the cars, people from our group LSSN passing out leaflets. There was a radio station there promoting Lincolnland Stroke Support Network. Soo....if you know anyone that suffered a stroke and would like to join a wonderful group, I highly recommend this support group. I can't wait for upcoming events. There will a picnic on July 3rd and I have so many ideas on what to bring as far as food.
I am so glad that i was browsing this board at this time. I have speech aphasia.....yess. I didnt have a stroke, but I sustained a brain injury when I was in a car accident and lost my speech ability about 50%. I was in the hospital for 2 months last year. I had a excellent speech therapist while I was in hospital.. in Fla. Soo.....I was put on SSDI the day i was admitted in the hospital, when i came back to IL i tried to get medicare.....they said that cause i am under 62, I have to wait 2 years to get medicare. My SSDI does not cover speech therapy. What do i do for myself for speech... read.. read read out loud so that I can HEAR myself. Also....even better is SINGING....the vocal cords get more stretched. I am sure your dad knows alot of songs from his time. Go to your computer and Google any song that he likes and print out the lyrics out for him. Then he can sing along with the lyrics. I hope this works for you.View Thread
I had an accident that landed in the hospital last year. My speech was impaired along with other things. I had a speech therapist while i was oin the hospital. I was discharged and wanted to seek a therapist. I get SSDI every month and that covers my bills. I dont have medicare because I have to wait 2 years till i get it. I don't qualify for medicaid because I don't fall between the "brackets" they allow. What's wrong with this system..!! . And please, DONT even suggest go to any Community resource or govt or state agency to get help. I had so many people tell me go there..or there. My speech.....is not any better since I left the hospital. That was July. They predict that any speech patient will recover by 6 months. My sister would call me and will tell me that I speak better than before.. I don't believe it, if that's the case.....I can not talk at all sometimes and the words are so jumbled. What can I do for myself to make the speech improve. If anyone can suggest any thing that would help me, it would be greatly appreciated...
