Teacher, 28, has to re-learn how to read and speak after devastating stroke – Metro

A primary school teacher is having to re-learn reading and speaking after a severe stroke wiped her memory.

Alisha Malhotra, 28, couldn’t even say hello after the stroke last year that left her feeling like she was living in a bubble.

Initially doctors didn’t realise the extent of the injuries to her brain and kept telling her how well she looked.

But now she has to go for speech and language therapy twice a week.

Alisha, who was just 26 when she was struck down by the stroke, said: ‘Within an instant, I’d lost everything. I didn’t know any words; hello, goodbye, mum, dad – they’d all gone.

‘I had no idea what had happened to me, and I don’t think I realised in hospital just how serious it was.

‘I smiled and nodded to nurses and doctors, and everyone would tell me how well I looked.

‘They didn’t realise just how much I was hiding behind my smile – I remember being so confused by everything going on around me.
