For a long time I always thought people have an internal inclination towards stability. I mean, on the surface it seems anyone would pick a Utopia with food surpluses literally falling out of the storage sheds and a massive beautifully constructed society where the buildings are nice looking, the st...

Well I don't live anywhere near you so I can't be very helpful, but hopefully it helps to know that a lot of us can relate. I have struggled with making and keeping friends my entire life, I've lost so many. It's not just "we're not friends anymore" it's usually they decide to gang up with...

I've struggled with this for a long time. I've gotten in frequent arguments with other people which then results in that person exploding on me or expressing massive amounts of anger and projection. "This" is essentially a massive emotional outburst. When in an argument, especially one whe...

Thanks for all the answers. Though my main difficulty, the one I seem to constantly have trouble with anyways, is an existential crisis. Being with others (that I trust) can help alleviate this because I feel like there's someone else in the universe who is as conscious as me (hopefully). When alone...

I've been trying to figure this one out. I find that certain mental exercises and even rewriting the brain can allow humans to live in certain conditions, and I was wondering if it's possible to just make myself immune (or more resistant) to loneliness. I know it sounds like an odd and self-destruct...

Very similar to me, especially the sensory/friend parts. I have immense trouble maintaining friendships and I'm never sure when someone wants me to visit them or to go away. I'm always just "dropped" as in the friends just don't care about me. I also have a LOT of people working against me...

I have issues with this. I get told I'm in my own little world more than I'd like to hear. I don't care about it too much, considering I don't care about other people or their opinions in general, but the isolation which comes along with doing my own thing is somewhat frightening. It brings on an ex...

Anyone here who was in special ed and had academic issues and was never at the top of the class? Did anyone ever have to have their work modified? Was your IQ average or below or low average? People still think I am dumb and others think I am smart but I often feel maybe I am not very smart but yet...

Beautiful nature is the first thing. Specifically the rocky mountains, salt lake area. Also, Louisiana's beautiful Jazz culture, New York's fantastic business sector, San Francisco's famous scenic rainbow houses (not sure what they're called), Hollywood. Too many things, overwhelmingly good. The bad...

Pretty much me, at least I think. My IQ was pretty high, varying from top 4 to top 1%. I guess that's good. But when I can't learn basic skills with this "intelligence" such as social communication, word pronunciation, all types math, almost all sports, and others, it really makes me think...

I have the exact same issue. The DSM is a brilliant work of documentation, but it doesn't work for all of us because it's meant for specific cases. The same goes for more traditional psychologists. He may want to help but he's hesitant to give the diagnosis because to him, the symptoms are much more...

Man, mine sound pathetic compared to this. Probably because of my weird schedule resulting in a lack of contact with people. But I am frequently involved in conflict. A lot of verbal manipulation. People putting me in bizarre social situations. A lot more Sociopaths than I first thought, that's for ...

I see a lot of victim blaming in this thread. Why is everybody assuming he did things to trigger those poor poor bullies? Maybe he just has had the bad luck to have to deal with a bunch of sadists. You need to learn to read. No one above is "victim blaming". A thirty six year(his whole li...

Forgot a minor detail. I have some explaining to do but I'll cut all that out and just write it out. I'm younger than my age. Not by 50 years or anything, but for some reason I have a habit of always putting a different age on any account I make on all websites because I fear being tracked. I also m...
