    My stroke was over 11 years ago, and though my cognitive skills are sharp and my stress is low, my aphasia is slipping slightly. Should I be worried and anything to do to keep the aphasia level from dropping?

      Hi Joyce
      I find that if I am fatigued, my aphasia tends to be effected, my word finding ability deteriorates and slurring occurs.
      I don’t think it should be anything to concern yourself about, gets some rest and perhaps monitor it over a lengthy period and if it worsens, see a therapist.
      Regards
      George

      Joyce, you are doing great. Do not get stressed out. We all see ups and downs. Downs are not permanent.
