Typing in the morning is always better.

The Stroke effect all in different ways. for me I learn to walk like normal in a few weeks, to talk it took a lot, lot, lot longer and even today I talk horrible.I talk like a NEW Australian that doesn't understand English as when I talk i cut words out here and there and some time make no sense. I fail in a lot of areas but are still very strong in others if not stronger than what I was before the Stroke Yes the Heart attack change me 30% (lack of oxygen in the brain) and the stroke ( a blood bleeding in "A" part of the brain the size of a 50 cent coin)change me 60%.
I have a African Grey Parrot that lives inside the house and when I come home from the Hospital the parrot saw me and got me but I had a completley different voice to a point that even my family dont recognise me over the phone. Yes It change that much.
I tell you all what I feel like. I watch the blu ray movie 2012 a Sci Fi Movie where the Solar rays from the sun are going to end the Planet Earth in months so all the Country do is give big money to make BIG ShIPS to beat the Hugh/big tidal wave that will come when the CONTINENTS Shift and kill all on the planet but need to keep some species to re populate the earth again. Yes that Movie 2012 where the CONTINENTS shifts remind me of ME as some of my brain is DEAD (CONTINENTS)and my other parts of the brain is being activated. I notice things today that are better than before the Stroke (a few)but mostly I'm poor expecisley short term memory as i extremeeeeeeeeeeeely bad to a point that if i remember a 10 letter word to type i get half way throught it and i forget the word that i want to type and when i stop and re read the half word i dont recogines it so i have to replace it with another simple word. ALL my big Fancy words are gone so I'm left with small talking like a person that has never had a education.
For other stuff like Electronic stuff and Satellite stuff i'm extremely strong and if not better than i was before so work that out. Maybe CONTINENTS (my brain) have clashed together like the Movie 2012 and make the one CONTINENT part of my brain better. During Hospital time The first thing I did when I was getting better well I think I was getting better I starting to write with errors command strings for my satellite boxes to get me what I want and I failed but my brain worked around this quickly. when I got home from Hospital the v8's were on that weekend (the wife suffered as No v'8 on Channel 10 all the time)and it took me 30 minutes to understand on the equiptment I have and we had pictures no long after . I waso happy about this as i neally cried as as I fough i was usless but other parts of the brain took over and did what i wanted to do.
Today nothjing has changed to what 3 years ago i'm still as bad on some areas but sronger in others. what i have done in the last 6 months ios unbelievable and my doctor and my specialist is dumfound buy my method of doing things . Even the Stroke Foundation whated to learn on how I re teached my self to do thjings again as the damage in my head was the same as thousands of others but i was able to learn quicker.
For me if you fall of the horse YOU MUST GET BACK ON QUICKLY and if not day by day the longer you do nothing in the hospital you get worse.
See the Hospital only can spend 20 to 30 minutes with eacvh patient and that not enough. What I did to talk I founf a room with no one there and i went in a there and grabed a car magazine and tryed to read but I could not do this by perservered and eventually started with my volumn at 100% yes cound not speak low volumn only loud with attracted security and nurses/.
After doing this (other patient got pisses of but fu.ck them as if they want to sit there and fea;l pitty on themself it their problem)for two months I wax away.

tired Now time for a rest.

Don't complain about my spelling and my grammar because the Heart Attack and Finally the STROKE SCREW ME. Now I have to go back to square one to learn

No worries Satman.
Strokes can really stuff up life as you knew it.
It sounds like you were really lucky to survive them.
It also seems that you have the right attitude to make each day as good as it can be and to keep at things to achieve success, in whatever form it takes.
I was more fortunate than you as I had TIAs recently with no real permanent difficulties other than a loss of strength and concentration.
It's a real wake up call.
For you, keep on posting as much as you like and can, particularly if it helps in some way.

Have you tried using a word predictor? I thought there would be such an add-on for Google Chrome or Firefox, but I can't find any basic ones.

However, since Windows 7 you can use the text prediction in the on-screen keyboard if that helps. I used it to type "Thi" and it gave me these options:

what i need is something like phones (SMS) as you type the first three to four letters and it fill the rest in and you check if you got the correct work.
It show you what a stroke can do. Could you imaging thinking of "A" word and forgetting it half way along before you get to type it.
Interest will look at the above.
Anything that can help me will be a big + for me

I can only imagine it's like being distracted by other thoughts all the time. I've had a silent cerebellar stroke when I was much younger, but silent meaning no symptoms and I can't say if it's affected my coordination. I got lucky as my migraines led to it being seen on MRI. It was all due to a very slight hole in my heart, a birth defect which 25% of people have. So I had the operation to fix it and my risk of stroke is significantly reduced.

Your story of the elderly man who rushed you to hospital is amazing, the stuff of film scripts!

The Only way they grow is if I get the pick and shovel out and do some digging + wire them up and paint them. Something to do with my retirement from work plus i get to see a lot of channels, good one too.
