bad day [Jul. 16th, 2006|04:12 pm]
I speak in silence - for those of us nonverbal

chinsarecute
I definetly had bad day today. I just was tripping over myself and my emotions and I was depressed. I never was hyper, though, just down. My dad says stuff about 'middle of the road'. green leaf, spiky leaf blowing in the hot hot wind. on the tree that grows so tall tall enough to kill you if it falls. see, i'm going off like a nutso again, talking about the tree out my window. grey stone grey stone on the dirt id love to break you up break you up so you can share my pain. I'm sorry. I'm considering deleting that...but I'm not going to. This is just a part of me. Everybody has thoughts like this some days, but I do every day, and on my bad days, they're basically all I know. I mean, organized thought doesn't happen. stop blowing now fan stop it right now you force the air where it doesn't want to go and
I'm so sorry. I'm getting a little psyched out right now, I'm going to go chill.

Hey Leela, what do you want to do after you graduate?
I want to get a degree in special education and some sort of medical degree...and maybe a social physcology degree. I want to be an occupational/social therapist for people with autism. What about you?

If they came up with a cure...I don't think I would take it. I think it would be neat to be without any kind of hinderence, but I am proud that I have the strength to deal with it. I think that I have a duty to show others that we can all deal with what we have, just like you and I. Some people can't. There are always stories of people who were in a car accident and were paralyzed from the waist down and went wacko and were really rude to everyone and complained all the time instead of accepting what happened and moving on. That was a really neat thought.
By the way, I am interested in hyperlexia and other forms of ASD.

I was wondering...if they invented a cure for people with disabilities would you take the cure?I have come to accept that I am non verbal and partially crippled and I will probally be this way throughout my life,but I do wonder what it would be like if I were to speak again and walk freely without the help of a cane.That is not all I have,I am also Bipolar and OCD.

But still...what would YOU do?


Sincerely,Leela

hello Leela. My name is Katy.
I am glad you joined this community.
You said you use sign language. I know a little bit...but not much. I don't if maybe Dahn will learn to use it or not.
what is AIM? I guess I don't have that, if I don't know what it is. Maybe if you tell me though, I can get it because I'd love to talk to you.
My username actually means chinchillas are cute. I know it seems rather strange.

I'm sorry I skip subjects so quickly. The other thing I like about computers is that I can re-do my work until I get it right.

I have two brothers. A younger one named Howard who is a guitar player with a stage named of Buddy Ray. He has a band, plays in gigs, and he plays loud. And then I have Dahn who is 18, whom you already know about.

I am not actually non-verbal ... Sometimes I just get really scared whenever I am alone, like a panic attack and then I can't speak, so no one knows what is wrong with me. I kind of go from hysterical to depressed and I just get all wrapped up and lost. When that happens, I go and sit in my closet until I have calmed down. My mother teases me and calls me manic-depressive, but I'm not. Anyway, my main problem is that I am chronically shy. But I will despise and defy authority (often quietly) if I strongly object to what they're saying. For example, they usually assume I am Christian, like everyone else. So the next day, I'll draw a star of David on my arm or something and be sure they notice it! Well, one of the interests of this community is social outcasts, so I fit. Besides, my best friends have been severly LD.

Speaking of interests, if you have any you'd like to add to this community, just tell me and I'll add them.

Sorry, I forgot to tell you these rules earlier. They are pretty common sense, in my opinion. This new community is for people who are nonverbal for any reason, have a family member who is nonverbal, or have had some other type of contact with the silence. The rules are: 1. no foul language 2. no sexual content 3. be open and honest and be yourself 4. be nice to each other
I hope you join!

Dahn [Jul. 10th, 2006|10:32 am]
I speak in silence - for those of us nonverbal

Dahn is my eighteen year old brother. He is not my parents' son, or my brother's brother. He was adopted a long time ago,but not by my parents, but he is my brother, although I was born after he was adopted. Supposedly, he is a figment of my imagination. Anyway, Dahn graduated from high school and he went to a party two weeks later. Then he rode home with a guy he thought he could trust, but it turned out the guy had been drinking. Dahn used to be a twin but Klayde was killed by riding with a drunk driver, so Dahn panicked and the driver got mad. Then the driver went about 96 miles an hour, according to Dahn's friend who was riding in the backseat. Then they merged onto the highway and nearly hit a semi. The semi spun out of control in an attempt to avoid the car. The semi impacted the car on the passenger side. The semi driver was killed. Dahn's friend had a broken arm, and the driver was fine. Dahn was in critical for almost a month. They said he had severe head trauma and that he could die. Dahn's friend Troie is really upset by the incident. About three weeks ago, Dahn moved to a rehabilitation center, but he can't talk, and he doesn't seem to be able to relate to us. Dahn was never popular or an all-star guy or anything like that, but he wanted to go to college and his dream was to own a fleet of city buses. He had a girlfriend named tereesah. She has been visiting him a lot. I am worried about him. Any advice?
It is clear he is going to be nonverbal. I think, if he ever gets his mentality back to normal, it will be harder on him to have been used to talking then it is on us to never have talked...I don't know.

Hello. I created this community. If you have any questions, leave a comment or your email in the comment and I'll get back to you. So far, I'm the only member. I hope that will change as it's kind of lonely here...
