I Try to Talk But Words Won't Come Out

    As Shakespeare advised us when he spoke poetically through Juliet, words, names are meaningless - you can call something anything and that does not change the property nor the essence of it. But out of necessity we have them.  Words are the most contradictory of things...

    And It's So Frustrating.....

    Because you need to know you have hurt me and that I can't take anymore. I want to tell you that I am upset because you can't see that I am right now. I want you to know I am hurting. Yet everytime I work myself up to do it, I just freeze up. I am so used to wearing a mask and...

    Or the Wrong Words Come Out

    Usually at work or when I'm rushing. I just can't articulate! I'd rather be writing.

    You'd Think Being W Writer I'd Be a Good Speaker . . .

    but my mind wanders . . . a lot, that is a big problem, and that makes it really hard to talk, whereas for some reason, writing is easy peasy. That's why I love it so much, because I can get myself across, and really say what's on my mind, or tell people what I think about.

    Here Goes Nothing

    Or... When I think I know exactly what I am going to say, I get thrown by the other person's part of the conversation. I go blank. I feel like I am thrown off and I don't know how to get back or sometimes I just don't completely understand or catch something or I think I caught...

    I Hate It...

    I always get tongue tied when I need to speak the most. It is very frustrating; I'll tell myself over and over to say something and I just can't. I sit or stand there in silence like a dum dum...

    I Didn't Want to Be Geeky

    One time I was watching TV, and my dad came in and asked what I was watching. I was watching that Disney movie Dinosaur, but I couldn't bring myself to say "dinosaur". It was something about that word -- I knew a lot of geeky and autistic guys were fascinated with...

    Known As Brainfarts!

    It has been happening alot lately and it's ******* me off. I know what I want to say, then it doesn't come out, and then my mind goes blank so I can't get what I was saying out. I don't know what my problem is.

    The wrong words come out. I can get so flustered, so scared & confused that I can never convey what it is I'm trying to say. It can be very frustrating for me. I say one thing & someone gets a completely different meaning out of it. It scares me that I am so BAD at...
