I'm only sticking around because of my Mom

And my cat as well, in a few decades when they're gone I'll be checking out as well. I hate everyone and especially wish a slow death upon those whom went out of their way to make sure to know I'm forever cursed with learning disabilities and emotional problems throughout my life.

Re: I'm only sticking around because of my Mom

I'm sorry you're feeling rotten, Lloyd, but glad you have at least 1 person and 1 furry friend worth sticking around for.

It sucks to feel that way. Do you have someone to talk to? If not you can PM me. I'm a good listener.

Re: I'm only sticking around because of my Mom

I lived for 53 years without being told I had learning problems and emotional
problems ... but I knew something was wrong. I just hadn't been told what it
was. Someone suggested my granddaughter might have adhd, I researched it
and could tell right away that is at least part of my problem. Since then I've
connected with discalculia, facial blindness, and autism spectrum disorder.

Are you feeling like someone is telling you that you will never amount to any-
thing because of your disorders? If so, that's horrible and that person doesn't
deserve to have a place in your life.

But this is the type of crap I've had to put up with just about every employer and with most people in social situations, nobody gets it unless you're in this type of situation and what ****** me off is that I'll have a couple of off days in a row and all of my previous brownie points seem to of been in vain and yes society does tell us quite frankly people who are different with learning disabilities, chronic health issues to just go away and die somewhere.

Of course I'm sure there are those whom find that common attitude to be repulsive and hopefully theres enough of them out there to where we can start publicly shaming these type of scumbags who get off on putting us down or implying we'll never amount to anything, next time one of these ******** at work or what have you starts up, you take your camera out and start filming them, ask them to state what was said off camera and tell the world about this scumbag.

It's about high noon that these people start to know for once in their lives what it feels like to be marginalized or what it's like to have trouble finding a job, maybe they'll have to get on disability due to nobody wanting to hire them because the world knows what scum they are, time to fight back for once. I've about had it.

Some people speak up and say "Wow, I didn't know you were a doctor (or a
psychiatrist)! Of course, doctors do sometimes disagree, and I'm just going by
what my own doctor has told me."

Re: I'm only sticking around because of my Mom

I'm sorry you are hurting, Lloyd!

I'm sorry people have treated you that way; it's deplorable. I hope that while you are sticking around for others you come across some reasons that you want to stick around for you! The forum is here for you and we are all happy to help however we can

Thank you.

Yeah we just have to help one another and try to pull ourselves out of the mud when we're stuck.
