    Hey guys, I’m Cam, 17, SM.

    I had selective mutism pretty severely as a kid, though it was never diagnosed. People thought I was just shy. It went away when I was around seven.

    Now, it’s coming back. I haven’t gotten it diagnosed, but from talking to other people with it, it’s pretty clear. I’m learning very basic ASL on my own to make actual conversation possible with those who speak it, and I carry a whiteboard for those who don’t.

    I feel like life would be a lot easier for us if sign language was more common…

    Hi Cam, welcome to the website.

    I think that is cool that you know sign language, and it is smart that you use the whiteboard.

    So you were okay from age 7 to now? I am curious, did something change to bring on the SM so suddenly?
