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?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
