“I feel competent,” says 33-year-old Dave, who has been living with aphasia for 7 years. Dave had a left hemisphere stroke at the age of 26. When asked to describe himself prior to his stroke, Dave says: “Good job, sales, and baseball, and buddies, and guitar in a band.” He describes the period immediately following his stroke: “devastating, wheelchair, and can’t talk at all.” Dave has been successful in reclaiming his previous lifestyle, interests and passions. “Now, 7 years later, talk better, live on my own, and new job, and softball one-handed—two hits by the way!—and keyboards now one-handed, and friends unbelievable.”
