A little feel good 

Wow it’s been a rough week. But here’s a story about a man who is nonverbal, but thriving. 

 I can’t converse well, but this doesn’t mean I don’t think. It’s just that when I try to speak, the words that come to mind disappear. I wonder if this isn’t similar to the sensation we all have of forgetting something? Even if a person with severe autism learns to use a computer, it doesn’t mean he or she will be able to express in writing all the emotions they have been unable to verbalize. Expressing what’s inside the heart and mind of my autistic self will always be problematic, I think.

This is so real and honest. And yet it is relatable. Even being verbal doesn’t guarantee being understood.
