    Welcome to the community @dorothy1234 :) How are you doing today?

    Thank you for introducing yourself! Am I right in thinking that you've had a stroke, and now live with aphasia?

    I also have Aphasia (Broca's). That happened when I had a stroke at the age of 36. I have brain fog and don't remember or have difficulties with my speech.

    I also learn a lot of things from researching but I refuse to believe there's a plateau for this kind of condition. I've had it for 7 years and I noticed improvement every single year.
