I wish I could help you but I have the same issues. Text messaging is always a process of trying to minimize what I am thinking, as is speaking. I am all too familiar with the blank stares, loss of interest, and feeling like I need to just stop talking because I’m going on and on about one thing or another. I sometimes don’t speak in groups because I am afraid that I’ll do my “ADD thing” and it’s embarrassing and a confidence killer. If anyone has any suggestions, please post, because I too would like to learn about how to communicate better.
