After his stroke, Navy Veteran David Hume was diagnosed with Global Aphasia, a communication disorder which impairs a patient’s ability to process language. Unable to express any words or ideas, Hume thought his life was over. Yet, three days after his stroke, he met the person who would prove him wrong.
Hume shares the journey of how he went from only expressing three words after his stroke to writing his own blog and becoming a motivational speaker. Speech Language Pathologist Karyn Pingel, who joins him on this episode, is at the center of his rehabilitative journey.
Hume and Pingel hope his story will inspire other Veterans eligible for pathology services to begin talking with their primary or specialty care providers to get a referral.
