I think a better analogy would be to use that walking stick with care, instead of like a baseball bat against an incoming ball. A lack of context in the message usually causes a subjective bias, meaning that the reader projects himself on what is being read. Reality call: nobody is out there to get to you, at least not on this forum, since, you know, you are not a target... just another text in the internet. So, try this: before attacking, refusing, or dismissing what others write (specially to you), think on it (you are not on a timetable after all, answering in a forum is not urgent) and try to think 3 positive things for each negative one that text provokes in you. You can control yourself and you acts, not those of others. You are responsible for your words and actions, not those from others. So yes, others don't need to do a thing when they communicate to you, because for them it is not relevant to make an effort. For you, it should be, since you want people to understand what you mean... else you wouldn't be so insistent in how much effort is for you to communicate and how little effort others make to understand what you say. Bottom line... you can feel miserable all the time and cry on all your posts, and that will lead to you being ignored by all, or you can take control of yourself and not flare a disability of any kind as a "get out of jail" free card, since that jail is mostly of your own making.
