Talking to your friends, sharing secrets, and making jokes are all normal when having a sleepover. Unfortunately when you have to type everything with your eyes, it can be hard.
When you have a sleepover, you always, of course, go swimming. The pool is where girls talk mostly. What if you couldn't talk or take a device to talk for you? Would you get out because you are frustrated you couldn't tell your friends something. I have this problem every time I get in the pool. My friends don't usually have a conversation with me in the pool because I can't respond back. So, they talk to someone else in the pool.
In a conversation at a big sleepover, you have to respond fast to have people understand you. I can't respond within just seconds. I have to type with my eyes, which takes about a minute. When I do respond, my friends are on a different topic and think I am weird.
Being not able to speak by yourself can be hard. The more I try, the more I get frustrated. People don't realize how important conversations is for me. I just wish that I could speak.
