So I'm about 4 weeks through speech therapy. I still don't speak very well or think on those terms much but I am at least understanding how the words connect better. Not really any better about understanding 'bad words'. Hopefully it all comes in time.

So I ended up shutting down my SG Account for a bit... not real used to talking even on a verbal level. I still prefer sign. No need to sort of guess at what people try to say to me. It's... very precise? I think my words, put them together and even see them. Less problems with saying things before thinking. Also can be...
