Communication is how you interact with the world. It is how you tell people how you feel and what you’re thinking. It is how you make choices. It is how you live the life that you want to live. Imagine knowing what you want to say but not being able to say it. Imagine having lots to say but not being able to say it.
I used to feel like that but not any more. Well, not as much anyway. My aid means that I can talk to the world. But it’s not always easy. In fact, sometimes it’s more frustrating now I have the aid than it was before. Though not usually. I want to tell you about the barriers to communicating, even when you have got an aid. I want to overcome them, maybe together we can do it.
