It's been a week since my partner has speaking difficulties. We can communicate to some extent. The main part he wants to say couldn't come out easily but still we talk and laugh. I try to encourage him to write and he said he couldn't. I found his notes that he wrote last night while I was asleep and it's very upsetting that I couldn't understand it. He had similar problems but not as bad prior to the surgery in August last year and he was back to normal after the surgery. I'm not sure I understand him clearly but he said something crazy was happening in his brain... crazy thought, crazy pictures. I hope he's not going crazy. Yesterday I tried to ask him hard questions.... what if .... He was so furious and told me not to even think of bad things until it happens. But... what if I don't know his answers when he can't answer those questions himself?
