Living with Alogia

Many people around the world suffer with Alogia and I’m one of them. Alogia in Greek means ‘poverty of speech’. An example of this is if you asked me what I do for a living I would say ´Support work’ someone without Alogia would say ´I am a Peer Support worker for the NHS’. Another answer to that question I read recently was ´Mow’ when someone without Alogia would say ´I have a landscaping business where I mow lawns’. It’s tiring to live with as I feel it holds me back from my full potential. I can write perfectly well and have to adapt what I do around that for example at work I have to prepare myself for what I am going to say in meetings by writing paragraphs I can’t just free flow. And when I’m meeting clients I have to have documents for us to to work from as a guideline. That’s why It’s such a massive step for me doing podcasts, I’m definitely out of my comfort zone but I am so passionate about ´I Can Relate’ I want those who are suffering to know that they are not alone and so I push myself out of my comfort zone.

Apparently there is medication that can help with Algoia and also talking therapies, I am yet to explore these but plan to In the near future, I’ll keep you posted as to how I get on. Thanks for reading Xx
