I have selective mutism, and I haven't been able to talk, at all, for 4 months. I had therapy yesterday, and my uncle (whom i live with) brought up to the psychiatrist, that he thinks i can talk perfectly fine, and that not talking is convenient for me. I hate this. I hate not being able to talk. I cant have proper relationships with anyone, because who wants to wait for me to type out things? I can join conversations, and all my friends have stopped trying to contact me, because who wants to be friends with a mute person. I cant even tell my brothers that i love them, but he thinks i like being mute. He thinks I'm doing it on purpose, and I'm not! I just wish people would realize this. I also wish people would realize, I'm not deaf, or stupid, or invisible. I am a person who just isn't able to talk, and i just want to be normal.
