By Aphasia Expert, Paul Berger
I have aphasia, a language problem from my stroke. This means I have trouble with names, including names of people, names of days of the week, and names of numbers. This can be a problem when writing checks.
I usually pay bills and keep track of my business accounts on the computer. I've been using Quicken since I had my stroke, and most of my check-writing is just a few clicks.
There are times, however, when I need to write a check by hand. Stephanie wrote out a list of the names of numbers for me to use. I've been using it for years, and keep it with my checkbook I take it to the grocery store, shopping mall, restaurant, and any other place I might write a check.
