Not long after I began to speak again (about 2 weeks after), I started to record myself. Usually, I recorded around 1-2 minutes about how the week went or any new updates. I started to post these videos on Facebook, not to totally embarrass myself (I can do that just fine by myself) but to make myself accountable to my recovery. I also hoped to watch my progress from week to week, as the more verbal I got, the harder it was to hear the progress each day.
You’re welcome to follow my progress along with me.
