It's probably the most debilitating effect of the injury, but I find it very challenging explaining myself to others. It's as though I know what I want to say, but finding the words and stringing them together to form a clear and coherent sentence is hard. I don't have this problem when I'm writing/typing, although I do take pauses every so often to reevalute what I'm trying to say. I've come to enjoy writing to people and prefer email conversation over telephone for that reason, but most people think doing the opposite is much easier and more conveinient. People sometimes tell me, can't you just phone? I don't care to explain to those why not.
