whats your treatment for it?



I've heard those who suffers from SM are given prozac but with sheer willpower I believe it can be overcome. I won't say children grow out of it.

They have to make the decision to overcome it and it takes a few years a lot of mental effort and preparation everyday to overcome the disorder.

Confessions

I am almost in high school and I have had selective mutism. I can talk to anyone that does not know i am like this. But at school I don't talk at all. This video made me cry. My parents use to scream at me for not talking. It is very hard


I feel like a loser & really alone since it doesn't seem like too many people have this(or at least into adulthood). I feel soo trapped coz I want to be the complete opposite of what I am but that side of me just can't seem to blossom out- plus everyone else just thinks I am shy & actually laughs when I say I have SM,or that I am using it as an excuse

More confessions

I must say the worst thing Ive found in public, is people thinking theyre rude because they dont say please and thankyou. thankfully I now live in a small town, where the local butcher and other shops know my son cant talk.


i have selective mutism.. i just want to talk but it feels like something stops me from talking .. like my voice box just doesnt wanna talk... its so annoying i just cant talk!!! i have no friends because of it.. everyone gives me dirty looks.. my teacher calls me rude.. im in year 9 and i just cant talk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i have had selective musism since grade 3 when a teacher humiliated me in front of the whole class. everyone just said i was shy and rude which made things worse


This is just plain SILENCE that is forced on you and you CAN'T control it. I, along with others, have suffered with this disorder, and I don't like it to be said that I'm overreacting to it. Please don't just assume things.
