Personal Battle

This is a Finding Words story!

The most frustrating part of having aphasia is when doctors and nurses patronize me. They do not understand aphasia and don’t want to take the time to learn. If you have aphasia, you must have a positive attitude. No one wants to listen to a cry baby. Aphasia is a personal battle. Doctors, nurses, wives and friends can only help so much, the rest is up to you. You must forget about the past, and live for the future. You need a new life, with new friends, and new goals. C’est la vie.
