I suggest adding that talking on the phone is quite difficult. Talking face to face allows me to use gestures and facial expression to make up for many of the words that I cannot instantly recall and allows me to avoid interruptions These interruptions often cause me to lose track of what I am trying to say and my effort to communicate simply fails.
Thank you so much for this insight into my daughters brain, I know this is going to help my family and friends understand just a little more about the injury my daughter has to deal with for a lot of years to come......Kath
