I am 32 years old and I have a Aphasia and I was born with it. I have also have grandmal seizures with it.I have a hard time with my my memory also and you are not the only one to deal with this. I have to write everything down and by memorize all things I have to study by cards. I am in college and I have to use a tape recorder and tapes to with my workbook so I can understand better. As for my aphasia I have my episodes also. I had a mimi stroke in mid April of last year and it is not fun and I wnet to the hospital and they checked me out and my neuroglogist came in and checked on me also.
