These comments are confusing me. Isn't selective mutism when you CAN talk but choose not to?

No. Selective mutism is an anxiety disorder. It's when you can't speak in certain situations because of anxiety.

Yeah, a lot of people get confused by that. Kind of ironic because it used to be called Elective Mutism, but when they found out they weren't mute from choice they changed it to Selective mutism, to mean they only speak in select situations. But the name still sounds like it's a choice. .-.

I honestly think it should be the other way around XD

Selective mutism is when you can speak but you're unable to speak in certain situations or with certain people. So choosing isn't really the right word for it.

It's horrible having this. People think I'm dumb or something, but in reality I know how to read, write and speak three different languages and I'm the smartest in my school.:(

I'm pretty quiet and stammer a bit when I talk to someone in public but at home I'm perfectly fine :O I like this stamp.

I have it too.
I always wonder why I could never speak properly in public, but perfectly at home. So I googled it, and it has all the features I have.

Anyways, great stamp though.

Can you develop Selective Mutism in your early teens, or does it HAVE to have started in Childhood? Because I used to be very talkative, but when I was about 13, all of a sudden, I just couldn't say a word. It was like, I wanted to say something but it physically wouldn't come out.. A lot of people thought I was ignorant and stuff, including my parents, who still think that, and try to force me to talk to people. However, I was really loud when I was with my parents and my one friend who I've known since I was little, but even if I was around them, and there were other people around, I just could not speak.

I did think it was just me and that I was wierd, because I couldn't find any info anywhere about not being able to talk, but when I did find out about Selective Mutism, everywhere I read said that people develop it when they are still very young children. :S

I'm starting to talk around a few more people now that I've left school and moved on to college, but I still find it very challenging to speak in front of a lot of people.

Some people think they're born with selective mutism, but personally I think you can have it at any age since I only developed the symptoms when I was 10. :P
It sounds to me like you have selective mutism. The good news is usually people overcome it as they get older. ^_^

Selective Mutism is an anxiety disorder characterized by the persistent failure to speak in certain social situations. :meow:
Basically it's sort of a fear of speaking. :P
