Thank you! These migraine headaches mimic stroke symptoms and at their worst leave you unable to walk, talk, or think clearly. If they hit hard and fast and with little warning, you can be far from home and unprepared. I have scared more than one friend and had the paramedics called more than once. Trying to mime a pen and paper one handed, though comical in hindsight, is more than frustrating to all involved and oral communication is like talking with a mouth full of marbles. Add in muscle jerks and spasms and the picnic is just about complete. HOWEVER!!! I finally have something else in my tool kit in my battle against this mess. My iPod (and six different weather apps--weather is a HUGE trigger) is never out of my sight. This will be a life saver should I need it. Thanks so much!!!
Needs a speech option
This is a great app that really increases safety for those of us who have occasional aphasia, whether due to autistic shutdowns, stroke, migraines or whatever reason. I don’t lose speech often, but having this on my phone does make me feel safer.
However, what if the person you’re trying to communicate with is illiterate? One time I used my iPad (before I ever heard of this app) to communicate when I had utterly lost my voice due to laryngitis, but the person I was trying to order fried chicken from couldn’t read. I mean, this is comic because no one dies for lack of chicken, but a speech option where your device speaks for you could really help.
I almost cried when I first discovered this app existed. I’m 19 and started having really bad panic attacks at 12, which can sometimes manifest in slight or full on dissociation where I can’t speak or sometimes even move. For those times I can still move, or when I’m getting out of full on dissociation and can begin to move again, this would be a life saver. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve scared people with my attacks, or they’ve made them worse by touching me/getting angry/etc. I really am thankful for the maker of this app and I hope they know how many lives they are saving and improving. ❤️
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
