Been having speech problems for several months. Most of the time, I talk fine. But there are times, I can't talk at all. Go into fastfood joint and can't say what I want to order, or wife asks me something and I'm just standing there looking dumb. Went to a neurologist, took an MRI. An area in my brain is white, not white spot, but the whole area. He asks, did you have a stroke? I'm like, not that I know of, I'm still here. He said it seems that I did in recent time. Thinking back, I remember when this problem first occurred. I mean I had few TIA before, but not a proper stroke. More test to follow. Kinda glad it didn't put me down. But in a way it wouldn't be a bad way to go. Not prolonged pain or painful treatments. Another reason to be thankful this season. Get to spend more time with my family.
