I am so sorry! You really need to contact your doctor though. You do not want to have another stroke, it could be much worse. Please take care of yourself and know that we are thinking of you are sending prayers your way.
Karen, please see a doctor. damage like this can get worse over time without treatment. this is really urgent. please do not delay. If it wasn't a stroke, then you will find out what the problem is.
OMG --- Karen!!!!
Get to the doctor or hospital right away!!!! A stroke is nothing to play with, and if its not a stroke and another neurological problem, you need to take care of it immediately!!! Your capacity to talk isn't something that just goes away one day. I totally agree with Meggie and Sue, please, please, please.. take care of yourself. My grandmother had TIAs and Parkensons Dis. But she never lost the ability to speak for more than a few minutes to a half hour.. a whole week doesn't sound good at all. My sister was a neuro-tech and she would take you over her knee if she knew you aren't taking this seriously. I'm only being this tough on you because I care about you.
Please let us know how you're doing..
Karen, Sweetie, go to the Doctor, please. We want you take care of yourself. As others have said this is serious. There are medications that if it was a stroke, works better the sooner you can take it. Even now they will help some. Go now!!!! I was shocked by your post & I just want you to please go. There is a good chance the stress brought it on & they say a second stroke is even more dangerous. If it wasn't a stroke it is still something that needs immediate attention. Many soft & gentle hugs, Denise

Thank you Marlee for saying that. I wanted to say that too, I had thought about it all night & finally decided I would say it.
Someone needs to help you Karen. It looks like it has to be you. Please go. If you don't I will send an amulance for you & you will have to go. With the internet,pretty much anyone can be found who is not in hiding in the back country.
Please go, now. If you have no one to take you, call a cab & I will reimburse you for it. OK?
