Hi! I recently started college, having been home taught from a young age. (I can't remember the exact age, 6 or 7, maybe),
anyway, i never really felt like i fit in, i wasn't confident or outgoing enough to just go up to somebody and introduce myself, so i just wandered around by myself, feeling a little like everyone else had friends, connections, except me. i had a few friends, but not close. having been "out of the system" for so long, it was a shock, i felt "out of the loop", and alone.
i read in a book about dyspraxia, that people, teens, children, tend to enjoy, and feel more comfortable around, adults, rather than people their own age. now when i read this, i thought, no way. its not possible, because that is me, in a nutshell. I hope that i am not the only one who is like this. gotta live in hope, right?
anyway, sorry for getting so off track, didn't mean to tell you my life story, but i do believe that it is connected. shyness, a feeling of isolation, being completely and utterly gullibe and cotton wool headed when it comes to jokes, ( i just don't get them, at all!) all of it. i hope i have helped, or given some food for thought. thx, love to all, faye.xxx
