One of my Drs diagnosed me with aphasia recently while I was an inpatient for mental health reasons. I have a problem sometimes speaking and my words come out all divided and jumbled up. I have had several head injuries, so that's not surprising. I hope our conditions improve over time. No more brain injuries!
You are from TBI Land....too! TBI (various levels of brain injury) + learning disabilities + seizures can make for one big comprehension mess. But just look at us.......we all probably had when we were born, an IQ of 150 and now are just, above average. I have aphasia issues when stress cup is overloaded and after any TBI.....all the words in the sentence are there....but they can be in jumbled order. Stress can also cause that. Stress or med changes for me took my comprehension to low levels......as did every TBI I had.
Comprehension....for me dies with anxiety or trauma/emotional or physical or intense emotion....I guess something has to give.......
I spent my lifetime teaching reading and during two times in my life had a TBI that took my comprehension back to 4th grade. It was hard to hide......not being able to read and track the words.....and have a clue what I was reading. My head injury specialist told me I needed to stop injuring my brain......but neuroplasticity and the things we do to create new neural pathways is pertinent to trauma, TBI, and mental health issues......and for me, learning new things has been key to confidence, better problem solving, and improved general comprehension in the reading area. I also play "Elevate" a phone app which helps me with language, reading, comprehension, speaking and listening. Learning new things, practicing things I should know by heart, exercising daily, eating healthy, having fun, and being creative all help create new neural pathways, improve mood and confidence, and help unlearn old auto-behaviors for me, anyway.
