Would you rather not be able to use your voice at all or only be able to shout at the top of your lungs anytime you say anything?

Id rather not talk. Shouting hurts my head. And loud talkers put me over the edge. I would not like people thinking of me like that.

Rather than shouting? Yes, I can write.
It really does hurt my head:[. I cant imagine shouting all of my conversations. No one would want to communicate with me.

I can handle silence - not being heard.
I'm an American citizen! I'm used to it!

I had a stroke a few years ago. One of the effects has been my speech - especially when I get tired. Most people don't seem to be patient enough to let me get my words out, or my stammering makes them uncomfortable. As a result, I'm pretty quiet.

Maybe that's why I'm so reserved and modest here! (hehe)

Yeah, maybe so. Initially it was maddening, frustrating, depressing - all kinds of "-ings".

People don't know what's wrong - how could they! They try to adjust by talking slowly, big gestures, extra loud sometimes baby talk.

Mrs Budwick (God bless her!) is very patient and we've spoken about it. She waits patiently for me to find the words and finish my sentences. And she has spoken to my kids about it and they with me.

The most difficult time is family get togethers - lot's of people, lots of conversation that moves along at a rapid pace. That's when I will generally go play with the kids and or the dogs. They hang on my every word - mis-spoken or not! Kids and pups have the purest hearts and most innocent minds - I think I win!

It was stressful at first.
But there's nothing that anyone can do to change it.

Ever heard of the Serenity Prayer?

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference"

It's all good Astral. And, you're right about Mrs. Budwick. She is the absolute best!

I have the serenity prayer framed and hung by my bed. It was given to me by my mother in law before she passed away. Sometimes it's hard to follow, I'm getting better at it.😊
