    ¿Cómo traduciríais "I struggle with words"? Se me ocurre "Me cuestan las palabras". ¿Se os ocurre algo que suene un poco mejor?

    Dependiendo del contexto, «Me cuesta encontrar las palabras adecuadas...»

    Gracias, not me. Suena mejor, pero creo que es un poco más general que eso. Amplío contexto:

    "I struggle with words. Never could express myself the way I wanted. My mind fights my mouth, and thoughts get stuck in my throat. Sometimes they stay stuck for seconds or even minutes. Some thoughts stay for years; some have stayed hidden all my life. As a child, I stuttered. What was inside I couldn't get out. I'm still not real fluent. I don't know a lot of good words".

    Pido disculpas por no haberlo incluido en mi primer mensaje.
