How has stroke affected your communication? What have you found useful to help you? 

My voice went deeper and I often stumble over words,  hesitating before I can say them.  I used to read loud and clear at church but have lost confidence.

Hi Barbara

Have you had support from a speech & language therapist? the more you practice, the more chance you have of getting your confidence back, but I know that is often easier said than done, due to other effects such as fatigue.

Are you still reading at church, although you feel you have lost your confidence? 

Take care
