My dh has a speech impediment, and sometimes he has a hard time comprehending things. He, IMO, is very smart. But, he can't focus on things for long w/I getting frustrated, can't speak some words, and has a hard time with grammar and such.
Why? Well, his mother beat him pretty bad from birth till he was 2, and then when he was 3, his mother wasn't watching him and he fell in the pool. He was pronounced dead at the scene but was air vac'd to the hospital and on the way was revived but he had a lack of O2 for so long it killed brain cells.
Ok... NOW ask me anything.
