Helen was self-asserting by birth. Helen, as a young girl, was in deep communion with nature. She enjoyed her time in their garden, feeling alone in the square stiff boxwood hedges, losing herself among the flowers, and after fits of temper, seeking solace in the cool leaves and grass. She learnt to talk quite early, and learnt to walk when she was a year old. Then came her illness, an acute congestion of the stomach and brain, which robbed her of her senses of seeing and hearing. Gradually, she got accustomed to the silence and darkness that became her entire life. With her mother's help, she developed signs which she could use to communicate with others. Her disabilities made her frustrated with the world, an often it would result in a tantrum, when she could not understand what others were saying. Martha Washington, the child of their cook, understood her signs the best, and Helen used to dominate over her, making her to do the things she wanted. She was also resentful of her little sister at first, almost killing her when she overturned her cradle.
