2. Slow in finding
the right words and processing his or her thoughts are another symptom. With Huntington’s disease, when you talk to the person, it will take them longer to process what you’re saying. You have to be patient with them. The person is going to give you an answer, it just takes them a bit longer. It may become frustrating for the person with the disease because he or she wants to respond, but can’t like normal people.
A speech therapist may be helpful for a person suffering from this disease. It won’t cure them, but it can help them to feel more confident in speaking even if it does take them longer to respond. A person suffering from Huntington’s disease with this symptom does well with people who are compassionate. They don’t need to be around people who will make them feel bad about themselves. They already have it hard enough.
