TORONTO – Imagine banging your head, and suddenly speaking with a Scottish, Russian, or Chinese accent.
It may sound like something to laugh at, but for Sharon Campbell-Rayment, it’s no laughing matter.
On July 11, 2008, Campbell-Rayment, a self-described “Type-A” personality — someone who spoke publicly three times every Sunday at church, who held three jobs, who taught herself the Hebrew alphabet — was out teaching girls horseback riding at a camp she ran.
It was the one time she didn’t wear a helmet.
She ended up with small bruising of the brain, but MRIs showed no major brain injury. She took the time to heal and thought that would be the end of it.
Except it wasn’t.
Something wasn’t right.
“I’d go into a store, and people would overwhelm me with conversation, or the noise and the lights,” Campbell-Rayment told Global News.
Ten days after her accident, she woke up unable to speak at all.
It took Campbell-Rayment almost a year to regain her speech. And when she did, she sounded more like Sean Connery than an Ontarian.
“As the speech therapist worked with me, she said, ‘You have an accent. Did you previously?’ And I said, ‘No, actually.’”
