    So a friend of mine asked me how to be a hatter,

    with my vast knowledge and my witts, I couldn't even come up with a proper answer. First I have to say what a Hatter is: Someone who goes in life wandering and wondering, someone who knows it is not the clothes, nor the car, nor the objects we posses that makes us who we are...

    Frustration At It's Best

    I have been diagnosed with PTSD, from my upbringing and then continuing to my ex husband. We were married 22 1/2 years, so between the two, that was the majority of my live. I am even on SSDI for PTSD. I now believe after so many med's and so much happening in my life, my problem...

    Not Good At Words

    I am very shy and not good at talking. Normally I prefer to bottle up my feelings in front of people. Every time when I feel very emotional (frustrated, embarrassed, angry, anxious, depressed), I can't find the words to express myself. I either walk away without a word and...

    Uhm.   Aah.   I know what I want to say but I just don't seem to be able to find the correct words to truly express my thoughts and/or feelings exactly .  I often use songs and lyrics instead.   And hope the message gets across. ...

    Lost In Translation

    I get so frustrated when I'm trying to tell people something and it's just not connecting.  I get frustrated with myself when I'm trying to express something through words and find myself sugar-coating it.  Sometimes I know it's my fault, that I'm not just...

    Words Don't Adequately Define The Abstract

    It's not that I struggle to find the words to say what I want to say...it's that there often aren't concrete words to describe the abstract emotions and feelings that are within me. I have a high level of emotional intelligence about myself, which is ironic given the fact that I...

    I Have A Verbal Glitch!

    This is one of the reasons I LOVE EP. I can write my feelings and opinions. I express myself best in the written word. On the other hand, I'm not as eloquent verbally. I say the wrong words or in the wrong sequence or it just doesn't come out right. I think I have a glitch in my...

    Beyond Frustrated

    For someone like me who has a vast vocabulary, admitting this is somewhat defeating. ~sigh~ My emotions become so overwhelmed, that I can't calm myself down to say what I really mean a/o feel. What's worse, is when I love someone and there is a HUGE misunderstanding going on...

    Always.

    I'm constantly at a loss of words. For some reason when I'm talking, my mind decides to crap out on me. So then the next best thing is to point and pretend like I'm saying something, and maybe snap my fingers a few times. I feel like such an idiot because I knew what I...

    Stuttering!

    I couldn't think of the word "referral" yesterday.  I wanted to say referrence.  This happens to me all the time, more so when I am upset/stressed.  When I was at my last psychiatrist appointment, this was so bad that I was stuttering!
