Hi

a good friend of mine refuses to telefone. he can hear perfectly well but she does all her busines via email. if her friends want to call her she denies the call and sends an sms. i asked her why she does that and she replied that she doesnt fel comfortable phoneing, i told her she needs so practice and she got really angry and screamed that this is not my business! I think it's not good that she doesnt call, how does she do that at work?! i mean you always have to make phonecalls everyday!

how can i help her?
Cheers, Stikky

that in and of itself doesnt prove she has anxiety disorder but that is certainly a symptom.does she not like to leave the house too and is she nervous riding in a car.does she have severe panic that seems like a heart attack.does she get a racing heartbeat or pulse rate.if your getting a pulse of over 115 beats a minute that is a sign of severe panic

i drive limousines slowly on the driveway on saturdays

she isolates herself with this behaviour, I say it's a disorder. what's so hard about phoning anyway? does she have speechproblems?

maybe has she a hearing problem? many hard of hearings have difficutlties with phones and because they dont understand all they refuse to phone.

This ability is not nessecceairy!! I am profoundly deaf and cant use the phone but i am sucessfull anyways. EG when you or on the streets or in a crouwded bus, people shout in their phones "I DONT UNDERSTAND YOU!" repeadetly, why dont they just send a quick sms and problem is solved?! I dont think it's nessessairy to be able to make phone calls. if she doesnt want to do it, let her. maybe its a disoder maybe she just hates talking to people without seeing them! I dont see much of a problem here.

Cheers, camilla

Deaf people can do everything except hear.
