Soul Intact

This is a Finding Words story!

My world as I had knowned came to a screeching halt on June 2, 2012 – my life will never be the same again… Never.

I found myself in the throws of a Ischemic AND hemorrhagic stroke… Simultaneously.

After all is said and done, I lost how to communicate – me! A former polyglot, public relation/marketing professional in the height of my career.


Pause. Reach for the words. Stop. Crumble. Break. Aphasia.

Four years trying, Im still trying … Aphasia.
