My brain doesn’t work anymore. I say one thing but mean another. You know this. When you’re telling me something, please be as specific as possible. Don’t assume I know what you’re talking about or that I understand the words that are coming out of your mouth. I realize that it is very frustrating when I get that blank, confused look on my face. Imagine how it is for me. I can’t read between the lines. The connections that your brain makes automatically take my brain longer and end up in totally different places than yours. So please be patient. When you are explaining something to me, be kind. Don’t talk down to me and don’t use that tone of voice that says you think I’m an idiot. I hear enough negativity from the voices in my head.
