"The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said." –
“Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.”
Communication is a very important skill to have and when you are going through a big transition communication is even more important. There will be times when you are not sure how to say what you are feeling, but trying is better than just closing up. Asking questions helps ensures the other person is understanding what you are trying to say. When you are newly disabled you may not have the words to easily communicate so be patient with each other. Being disabled is an ever evolving thing, you will be learning new things all the time, and your communication skills will get better as you go.
