Silence isn't always golden

Remember her? She's been back at home, living with her mom, for quite a while, and her medication seems to have stabilized her. Her doctor thinks she's well enough to leave her day program and get a job, and later, go back to college. There's been some talk about her possibly becoming a speech therapist.

But none of the talk is coming from her. She just doesn't talk anymore. Oh, she'll say "Hi" when she sees someone, and "Bye" when they leave. But she rarely participates in any conversation.

I know that marvelous mind of hers is still in there, somewhere. It's just under lock and key. I can only hope that at least she has access to it.
