KNOW WHAT’S CRAZY?

KNOW WHAT'S CRAZY? I LEARNED THAT SINCE I HAD A STROKE (LET'S SAY A BRAIN INJURY), I'M LACKING IN SOME SKILLS, SINCE THE STROKE WIPED OUT IN PART OF MY BRAIN. 4 INSTANCE, I HAVE TROUBLE VERBALLY (THROUGH ASL) EXPLAING THOUGHTS AT TIMES, BUT CAN TYPE IT FINE. THAT LINK IS MISSING SOMETIMES. LUCKILY, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A JOURNAL WRITER—I SO MISSED IT EARLY ON & OFTEN THINK HOW BAD IT'D BE IF I SPENT THE LAST 3 YEARS BLINK-SPELLING. (AS I DID 4 MONTHS POST STROKE).

OR I CAN C SOMETHING & GET THE OVERALL THEME, YET NOT UNDERSTAND. THAT LINK IS MISSING . I'VE ALWAYS HAD THIS PROBLEM 2 A DEGREE, SO I BLAMED IT ON MY VISION (DOUBLE VISION, HARD 2 C DARKER STUFF, MISSING STUFF BECAUSE I CAN'T STAY FOCUSED & HAVE 2 CONSTANTLY REMIND MYSELF 2 SCAN 2 THE RT., ETC.) I THINK THIS IS DEFINITELY PART OF IT, BUT AMONG THE OBVIOUS PHYSICAL NEEDS, IT CAN'T BE FORGOTTEN THAT I HAVE COGNETIVE NEEDS, WHICH CREATIVEKY NEED ATTENTION. I HUST LEARNED THAT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA HAS FREE ONLINE HELP FOR THESE PROBLEMS. I'D ASSUME THIS IS MORE SERIOUS 4 ME THAN 4 THE AVERAGE PERSON, SINCE I CAN'T EVEN DO SIMPLE TASKS, LIKE DRESS MYSELF.

HERE'S WHAT'S CRAZY: READING EMAIKS, TYPING, C-ING THE LITTLE "CLOSE" BOX ON THE COMP., SCRAPPING, & EVEN COMPUTER GAMES (SOLITAIRE WAS MENTIONED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA) HELP ME COGNITIVELY! I'M NOT 1 TO PLAY A COMPUTER GAME, BUT GUESS I SHOULD SOMETIMES MAKE TIME. 🙂
