Ever since I was turned down by researchers for Botox to the hands, I keep running into other ways I could be involved in stroke-related research.

I got a message on my blog wondering if I’d like share my blog with a study by Speech and Language Therapists doing a Masters project at City University London.

Is a bear Catholic?

“I am contacting you because we wish to analyse your blog in our theses. The name of the project is

Blogtalk: the impact of aphasia on people’s lives.”

Well have I got something to say about impact of aphasia on people’s lives. And it’s all right here in my book: What if you spend your whole life speaking and writing and woke up to find it was gone? (Special offer, limited time only, exclusive for readers of this blog – £9.99 plus postage of £4.95, call it £15 quid)

Seriously, there is no charge, as you know if you’ve been following my misadventures. But it illustrates how such an event will take away even the ability to earn money. And that’s just the beginning.
