Is it normal to have a hard time expressing yourself and understanding who are you are when you have social anxiety, PTSD, and autism? I wanna know if there's other people out there who struggle with this like I do.

      @mamabear978 I can relate, my son has Aspergers but he is now 22 and lives on his own. It is really hard

      I figured this was just me! so often I feel others can formulate clear thoughts verbally quickly and I'm here struggling to express how im feeling or thinking.

        @Meemomori literally!! And I speak very fast so often times, I talk faster than my brain can process what I'm saying so sometimes I end up confusing myself with what I'm saying or I just make no sense at all

      Anxiety and autism here. Yeah it's really hard for me. I sometimes get words wrong and it's really hard not to get frustrated to where I go nonverbal. It mostly leads me to a melt down as it's very hard being trapped and having no way to tell anyone what I want as I don't have the correct dialect for it.

        @IAmTired247 while I deal with anxiety and depression, I have a daughter who is nonverbal-autistic, 5yo. I can definitely understand how frustrating it can be. And on the other side, both my parents are hearing impaired, so I struggled with finding my voice growing up and being able to talk. Like my brain will run circles in my head, all the thoughts going so fast, but I struggle with finding the right words to be understood. Can be very frustrating! Good luck!
