Hydrocephalus linked to communication styles and communication process
Hydrocephalis, also known as hydrocephalic meningoencephalopathy, is a condition in which the brain cannot normally transmit signals.
People with hydrocephalis have trouble communicating, with problems including speech, facial expressions, facial muscles, and a lack of coordination.
People who have it can often have difficulty understanding what others are saying, even though their speech may be coherent.
People living with hydrocephaly can also have other mental health issues, including depression and anxiety.
Hydrocephalic people often feel embarrassed and ashamed when talking about their condition, which can cause them to self-harm or act out.
People often report hearing voices and having visions.
The condition is usually diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 35.
