My Mood: i think i am having mini-strokes
Default i think i am having mini-strokes

i know the words "aphasia" and "dyslexia" and they never applied to me until about 6 months ago, maybe less. i began to reverse letters and even words, leave off the last letter, flip names, all little signs that something was going wrong. finally it occurred to me to look up causes of aphasia, and i found Conduction Aphasia, caused by either lesions or strokes.

i have no confidence in my doctors, and little access to specialists, and have not found any recommended treatment anyway. what to do ? is this when aspirin is contra-indicated ? have i missed some crucial nutrient ? i have diabetes and arterial hypertension, but relatively minor physical damage from them.

my communication skills were one of the few things i had left, and now i see them crashing like bumper cars. if you saw how i type without backspacing,,, it's not pretty. and now i'm missing those errors, and things are going in print

really don't need any less respect than i have now .

Default Probably NOT mini-strokes

I have learned more since the last post, and I have none of the other symptoms of mini-strokes, no loss of time, sudden headaches, etc. Someone mentioned it might be oxygen deprivation, and that seems to be the most likely culprit, and at least it's one i can do something about... not walk around without my leash (oxygen hose).
