Short of biofeedback from your tail, analyzing different emotions during the pauses for words to settle will lead you to controlling volume and precision of making voices or clicks...

    I died

    I know I had made a post yesterday but I did not get to the core of why I feel the way I do. I feel like there is no returning to who I was before because of these thoughts. I am currently in an emotionless state. I feel nothing. And in this state of nothingness I have come to ponder over...

    Hey y'all

    Hello. I've tried forums before with little luck. It's probably because I am completely not capable of following through with anything. I've been trying to function with mental illness for as long as I can remember. I won't go too deep into my story, I don't think anyone has time for that...
