For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words, with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it:–as I have before observed, the thought is logicalised by the effort at (written) expression. There is, however, a class of fancies, of exquisite delicacy, which are not thoughts, and to which, as yet, I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt language.

Thanks for your input, indeed my levels of socialization vary wildly from month to month and I don't have what you would call "close" friends. It's not so much a lack of people that is my problem, it's connecting with someone enough to have this sort conversation without sounding mad (made even harder by the fact that most people around here are of the sort that are raised by their TV). I probably do use the internet too much but I don't bother with facebook or anything, but sadly with everyone else using it I often wonder if I suffer socially because of it.

I too feel like i cant express myself verbally a lot of the time. Though the thought process in my head makes sense, it lacks description. I have only met two or three people with he ability to understand me as a whole, and grasps my feelings without conversation. They moved on with their and or betrayed my trust.
