What's Your Secret: Dealing With Aphasia

Aphasia - or experiencing the challenge of finding words or speaking, is a common prodrome for many migraineurs. A lot of us have stories of being in the midst of a conversation and suddenly falling silent, struggling to find the word that is on the tip of the tongue. We turn into human thesauruses, offering synonyms in a desperate attempt to jumpstart our brains. We begin a weird game of Pictionary with the person we are talking to - silently trying to demonstrate the word that is trapped inside.
