I’m in hell right now. Why’s talking so hard for me? These thoughts are killing me! I can’t be around family rn
I feel for you. often all I do is mumble and forget every day words.
Take deep breaths and find a quiet space.
You can do this.
I agree. If it’s not a conversation that I practiced by myself, my words get mushed up and choppy.
I have thoughts that keep me from going out in public. The only person I’m comfortable with is my dad.
I am with you there. My Dad is the only person I talk to. I avoid all other people,
Try squares breathing before you try to be a part of everything. Do you know how to do it?
How much longer do you have with everyone? Is there anyone you feel comfortable with?
Yeah, i do. I’ll try it, thanks
The next couple of days. It’s not too bad, it’s just hard rn. I can’t think of anyone I feel very comfortable around honestly
Praying for you. Keep reaching out. We’ll help you get through a few days.
I’ve been there. Just hold on tight. You’ll make it through this.
I still have nightmares about my family reunions at Christmas. No joke.
Talking can be hard for me too. Could be because I have few people around me with common interests too. I’m sorry you are suffering. I hope things get better for you soon @NailsOnAChalkboard
I might stay in my room on Christmas Eve.
Too many self absorbed family members coming over.
I can’t deal with it!
Sorry about that nails, maybe take a prn, or talk to a friend or family, try to relax I hope you feel better
One way to strengthen the talking centres of the brain is to read out loud from a book for half an hour or an hour daily.
The first time I tried this I became suicidal after 10 minutes of reading out loud, but I gradually brought it up to being able to tolerate it for an hour after a month of practice.
I’m in the same position. I can’t speak. There’s no one I’m comfortable talking to.
