I used to know a woman, really smelly woman actually- well I don't think it was her, I think it was the clothes she wore, which then made it her when she took them off

one day she turned to me and she said listen, can I ask you something?

I'm like sure- what is it?

and she goes to me.. why do you think I'm so unpopular?

I just gave her a hug and said listen... I can't speak for everyone, but I like you how you are

and everyone thinks it was so sweet me telling her that

when I was really small (even before my MI started), a group of us went rafting on the river.

well I didn't keep still and I fell off the raft in to the river.

not only was i covered in riverwater (clothes, shoes, the works), but then we had a picnic on the shore- and I had to strip naked in front of all the people on the shore because my clothes were soaked and they needed to dry

so I ate my picnic with nothing on.

seriously embarrassing!

1 year, someone got me a copy of the computer game " theme hospital"

I was so excited. really really excited to play it and create my own hospital

until...

I found out they'd pranked me and got me a version of the game with set up instructions in every language but english!.

wow was I fuming!. I did more than say cuss words (yes I could cuss at that age, I learned really young)

I can relate to this. I still feel really awkward when I say something in a group and no one responds. Sometimes I just repeat myself in a louder voice- and then feel even worse when no on responds.

I've met people recently who treat me like my opinion of them is vitally important. When I don't respond to them in they way they wish, then they try really hard to get a reaction out of me. I am making a point to notice their good points. One of these people was treated very badly by her family, and I wonder if I remind her of her father- and perhaps that is the reason way she acts the way she does around me.

I'm ambivalent about how to act. Sometimes I feel like making an issue of it, but I remain silent because I'm not sure what to say and I don't want to make things worse for her.

When I was a kid and something bad happened I would draw a pic of myself and then another pic of "everyone else" who I assumed was fine. It seemed to make sense at the time.

Also I used to write all my toys names in a lined book and do a register like at school. But I soon realised they were all always there so I had to start leaving one somewhere else and pretend they were sick so I could mark them as absent on the register.
