I write no americano


It's pretty difficult for a foreigner to express himself in a different language. I've been dealing with it for a long time. I can speak, I can have a clever conversation (when I am lucky), but when it comes to writing, I am lost. Well, that being said, please excuse any of my typos, grammar mistakes and blurts (no wait, that is just me).
But what surprised me the most is that I am actually forgetting how to express myself in my own native language. Something only immigrants can relate to. So for all of you out there, living in a different country, do you experience something similar? And how do you deal with that?
