I have noticed, lately, that I am having difficulties speaking. I cannot find the correct words, I studded, and mumble, trying to get a thought out. Now, for those of you who know me, this must come as a complete surprise! Most of the time, you probably wish I would shut up!
It is not related to being tired or even stressed. This problem is not always with me either. It seems to be intermittent. But, when it happens, I am frustrated. It seems as if my mind cannot fine the word I want to say. Then, my mouth, lips, and tongue refuse to work together to make the word come out!
I realize this is a classic symptom of LBD, but I promised to report any and all issues related to my journey with LBD, and this is a problem.
Related to this, is my mind jumbles letters together, or drops them out of words that I am reading. The result is, I see and read a different word or a word that does not make sense. You can imaging what an issue this is when I am Preaching! But, even singing in Church can be an issue. I simply lose the ability to read. Not all the time, just intermittently, like my speech issues. Again, I cannot tie it to anything like being tired or stressed.
It seems those Lewy Body Protein Tangles have found another place in my brain to clog up! Maybe I should have changed my filter regularly. You know, the old oil filter commercial; "You can pay me now, or you can pay me latter!"
