I find it very difficult to speak.Words in isolation are fine but stringing a sentence together,well! In my head everything is fine. I seem to run out of breath rather than not being able to pronounce the words.It is very frustrating because I know want to say.what I thiink but can't. Most peoplc can't be bothered to listen or think I am drunk..It's very annoying. My speeh problem is a lot worse since the damage to the voicebox sustained during my recent operation. I find myself avoiding people and conversation of any sort but I will have to be careful of becoming isolated.
I find the difficult speech the worst part of ataxia to deal with although the rest of our problems are not easy
