I had 5 strokes. My fourth stroke gave me aphasia. I cannot speak. I tried to speak but I couldn't speak. But I felt good. I tried to say "I'm fantastic" but they did not understand me. I got a little better.
I had my 5th stroke in 2008. I just remembered knowing that I had a stroke. I could not speak again. Very difficult. Probably desperate.
