I am tolerated by my family. My sister at some point ask me to snap out of it.. because she thought I was pretending to be disabled. Most family members struggle with accepting that fact when you have survived stroke sometimes one’s personality changes. 

The Barry they used to know is inside of me but not so strong as before. When they talk about him I feel like they talking over me but not to me.

My name is Barry Nkosi I suffered a stroke attack in 2014 that affected my left side of the brain and the right side of my body.
