People do treat me as as stupid at social stuff. And for once, they're right.

I wish more people would see my difficulties with social skills. Maybe they'd be a bit more forgiving. Sadly, the people who see my social problems assume I'm an idiot in everything else as well.

Spudnik, I also went there. Did you see Dr. Scott Duncan, the psychologist? He was my therapist. My psychiatrist was Douglas Roy Ginter; did you see him?

No mine was Dr Douglas Grover, I had heard that he committed suicide, a few years back, he was a very compassionate doctor, The last time I was at the U of A was in 1997 after my mom died

Just because someone is superficially social and gregarious, it doesn't necessarily mean they have great social skills. There are painfully shy people on one hand and supersocial people who don't know how to shut up, on the other.
