In what other ways are your interpersonal relationships affected by disabilities?
It's hard to tell. I've always been a social being even post stroke. All I need to be that person again is someone willing to listen and have the patience to wait while I find the right word. But then again, I'm more or less housebound with my husband these days too.
Someone asked me how I write this blog with my impaired grammar and spelling skills. My answer was, "Very slowly and a lot of time." It's true. I just keep punching the keys on my keyboard. Misspellings will have squiggly lines under them in red. Grammar has green. I'll go back and fix those first. Then I will reorganize my thoughts so it reads (even to my dyslexic mind) like I'm making my point or supporting what I am talking about. It may mean deleting or moving sentences around. I may read through a single post ten times before I publish it and still there are errors.My biggest problem while typing is word omission. These things happen when I speak too.
So of my friends who email me, thank you. For the support by readers of this blog, double thank you.

I'm very slowly making my way back through grade school grammar and spelling. I'll get there one day back to being an author. Aphasia is no fun at all. I compare it beginning Alzheimer's a lot because you are forgetting and know you are forgetting.My brain is telling me it's wrong now so that's a start. Even when speaking, I now realize I'm saying the right or wrong word...to a point.
So it's not only my physical disabilities that hamper my interpersonal relationships but the workings between my brain and my mouth. That can be a handful for the other person to handle as well.
