SPEECH

THIS THURSDAY , I FINISH THESPEECH PROGRAM I AM DOING. MY BREATH SUPPORT IS BETTER, & I SPEAK CLEARER. IN FACT, MID-WEEK, WHILE PRACTICING, I HAVE SOME VERY VOCAL DAYS, & CAN EVEN CARRY ON CONVERSATIONS WITH SINGLE WORD OR 3-5 WORD PHRASE HERE & THERE. I HAVE EVEN TOLD MY DAUGHTER, “WHAT?” ON THE PHONE, & SHE UNDERSTOOD (PROBABLY BECAUZ SHE KNOWS WHAT THAT WORD SOUNDS LIKE)!

IT’S COOL, BUT 4 SOME REASON, IT IS WAY HARDER IF I TRY 2 SAY THINGS (INSTEAD OF IT NATURALY “POPPING” OUT), OR LEAVE MY HOME–IT’S LIKE I HAVE A MENTAL BLOCK, OR WALL, & I CAN’T STOP HOLDING MY AIR. PLUS, OUT & ABOUT, IT’S SORTA HABIT AFTER 7 YEARS, 2 JUST NOD, INSTEAD OF SAY HI, BYE, YEA, NO (WHICH I CAN DO ALL, JUST SOMETIMES THE VOCAL RESPONSE IS DELAYED). SO MY NEW THING IS 2 NOD, THEN SAY IT, EVEN IF THE PERSON HAS LEFT, OR THE CONVERSATION IS OVER. LOL THE TRICK IS 2 DO IT (SOMETIMES I EITHER 4GET, CAN’T DO IT, OR AM 2 TIRED 2 DO IT!) BUT IT IT’S A BONUS IF I SAY IT RIGHT AWAY! LOL

MY HUSBAND ‘S PARENTS HAVE BEEN VISITING US HERE. IT’S BEEN GOOD HAVING THEM HERE, BECAUZ I GET MORE OPPORTUNITIES 2 TALK, & AM ENCOURAGED 2 TALK.

I HAVE 2 SHARE MY FAVORITE THING: IF I AM FINGER SPELLING, & THEY ARE CAUGHT ON A LETTER, I LIKE 2 SAY THE LETTER, IF I CAN! I CAN’T SAY THEM ALL, BUT IT’S FUN 2 SURPRISE PEOPLE W/THE FEW I CAN SAY! LOL

ALSO, I CAN SOMETIMES NOW SAY “S” IF I TILT WAY BACK, ALMOST FLAT, IN MY CHAIR, THOUGH, IF I CAN, IT MAY TAKE QUITE A WHILE 4 IT 2 OCCUR. “SOPHIA” IS THE EASIEST S-WORD 4 ME 2 SAY LAYING DOWN, BUT I HAVEN’T MASTERED IT YET IN MY CHAIR.
