I have to figure out exactly what I want to convey, find the right words and put them in order so I may be understood.
Two, I have to decide whether what I want to say, is appropriate.
Three, I have to casually scan, search, for the right time to verbalize, watching for lips to stop moving, pauses in the other persons speech and some good guessing that it is my turn to speak.
Four, lol, I have to actually speak the words and sentences that I have been holding in wait, in my brain.
Sounds easy, doesn't it? It's weird how the simplest, everyday things, no one ever thinks or worries about causes great stress for this Aspie.
People write blogs for different reasons. Me, I write so people hear me....so my thoughts are finally expressed...my blog listens and makes me real:)
