I have Primary Progressive Aphasia. It does not go away. There will be no improvement. It progresses. I Awoke with it more than 18 months ago. This book mirrors so many of my thoughts and feelings. I have experienced so much disconnect with Doctors,
Therapist, Nurses. Even friends and family. I have felt such frustration and am so VERY tired of these "uncharted waters!"
The author has become my guide. Reading her book was my first step to finding someone who had been in the process of losing the ability to communicate. Although her loss was sudden And her struggle was to improve, I look at her as a mirror image. Now with all the information in her blog and the encouragement she extends to me, I have hope that IF I do go to where she has been,........DETERMINED I WILL BE....to take the scenic route and go slowly. I won't be taking the short cut I was on!
Crossing The Void: My Aphasic Journey, gives me a voice and real understanding to share with others. It helps them to understand my struggle better and helps them to better cope with me. I ask all my friends and family to buy this book because I just love it. I am thankful for the hope the author has given me and all the others who have been helped and encouraged by her strength and insight.
For anyone with Aphasia or if someone you know is affected by Aphasia I wholeheartedly recommend you read this touching and encouraging personal account.
Ms. Schultz is not a literary great, but she does a great job sharing an essential and true story.
