» Step 327: Sometimes, text before you call

This is a thoughtful thing to do for people who might be expecting bad or serious news. My family got in the habit when Grannybarb was really sick, and every time my phone rang I was terrified that it was a Serious Call.

So when we just wanted to chat, my mom and sisters and would text the other person ahead of time, so we knew that it wasn’t serious and we didn’t have to drop everything to take it/steel ourselves emotionally/get to a place where we could flip out if need be.

this has probably been said already, but this is ALSO a great and helpful thing for people who have stuff like intense anxiety about phones/social interaction.

because of those things, plus autism-spectrum difficulties with stuff like sudden task-switching and social minutiae, i need time to prepare myself even for something like a conversation with a friend.

if someone calls me spontaneously just to chat, my stress spirals out of control and i’ll actually have trouble with speaking words or making any sense. so i always ask the people i know who like social phone conversations to text me ahead of time if they want to talk, and then give me like 15-30 minutes to get my brain in order, because then i can actually enjoy talking to them instead of getting stuck in panic-mode from the start.

so yeah. texting. it’s a great invention. i don’t care what old people say.
