Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding.
I think we already have, for me at least.

I have stepped back from the Plurk knitters and podcasters community. I am reading less on Dreamwidth and LiveJournal. I have been upsetting people inadvertently and without intending to. I have been writing more in an offline but DropBox-backed-up manner. Thoughts and feelings but not fiction or memoirs, as yet. Trying to work out where I go from here. Most days I see one human being and one cat. I have been considering my online friends and acquaintances to be the sum total of my social-life. While I have met a few of you face-to-face, most of you are words on a screen or occasional snail-mail-and-paper words. I need to work out how to make my almost-housebound life make sense for me, hubby and Pixel. I need to decide what to do now that my language, understanding and emotional lability symptoms are causing me stress and anxiety whilst also, sadly, causing pain and upset to others. You people-in-my-computer are real people. So am I. Yeah, I don't know what to do next.
