There…I said it! I have aphasia.
I really don’t think I thought about it; I just KNEW something was wrong with me.
Aphasia is kind of scary; It means you can’t get words out. The minute I hear a aphasia, I think of the guys who can only say Yes and No…and that’s it…that is all they could a say!
I don’t want people to put me in that group. But I do have problems getting the words out…especially when it has to do my life now. I can talk to people quite easily. I can ask about their job, where they went to school, what they are working on now, sports, etc. When they start to ask about ME, that’s where I have trouble. I can’t tell them what I do!!! My own WIFE has trouble asking me about what I do. I don’t know WHY I have such a tough time with this.
The result: I just freeze!!! Nothing comes out. People here this and will say… I have aphasia. That is where I want to prove them wrong.
I am beginning to try scripting the FU talk, and I THINK it will work. I just need to test it on a few people and see how it goes. If the script works, I will have the next phase in my marketing plan working!
