^^^ That is one of dads biggest fears now. That when he talks to people someone will think he is stupid.

Tomorrow will be 7 months since the accident and wow has dad come a long ways. He still has a lot of issues, but his progress is amazing.

He can carry a pretty decent conversation and in a month he should be released to drive the car again, given his neurologist, insurance, ect all agrees and releases him.

He got approved for SSD. So thats good.

But you ready for this? Tomorrow night he will stand in front of a group and do his first public speech. Yay. We are going to try and record it and if so i will try to post it here. Im so excited. He is scared and nervous.

Now back to the title. He really tries to do things alone but with not being able to speak properly his communication is limited. He still cant read, but he may never be able to. Along with the Aphasia he has Alexia without Agraphia, but he can write out words. Its really weird but cool.

So he will call places and pass the phone to mom or I when he doesnt understand what is bein said or when in public ask for our assistance. Well im really impressed with people. They dont treat him weird or like he is stupid. They are always so sweet to him.

Lately dad has really been pushin me out of my comfort zone and pushin my anxiety to the max, but ive survived. Lol I have been drivin a lot lately, so mom can rest (shes been really sick) and usin the phone. Those are 2 of my worst "triggers." I feel in a way this is helpin me to deal with my anxiety disorder and get past it. I still deal with it a lot, but im slowly learnin to not let it control me.

Im really excited for tomorrow night. Im so very proud of dad. I so hope we can record it.
