I Am An Adult Who Gets Treated Like a Child

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 316 People

    I Deserve It Though.

    I am misfortunate enough to suffer from debilitating anxiety/panic disorders that leave me incapable of living on my own entirely.  I can't even drive.  If I lived with someone who did the driving for me then I could live away from home, but that can't happen...

    Because of my disability.

    It's an ANGER TRIGGER for me to be bossed around by people younger than me! They figure they can't pimp me around because I'm "retarded".

    How Infuriating !

    At 51 to be talked down to and at as if I were five is an insult. As much as I've been through and experienced, I don't take kindly to it. It's frustrating. And it always turns into an argument and hurt feelings.......usually mine.

    I am nearly 25 and my parents treat me like I

    am 16. Every time I stay at my boyfriend's place she gives me serious dirty looks and ignores me. Which I feel is extremely childish itself. If I wasn't a student I would be living with him already.

    Some women feel the need to be treated like a

    child especially in a disciplining mode. Some relate to when they were being disciplined as a child in their child hood. I do this but discipline as an adult because to me it takes more to discipline and adult than a child. However I do know women have much more emotional...

    This is true about me.

    Everyone thinks they are better than me from my little nieces, to my co-workers, to my boss- anyone at all in fact. I have absolutely no idea why. I just assume their egos are simply so blinding that they simply can't see straight- instead they interact with the sterotype or...

    I get undermined constantly by my family.

    They act as if im an idiot... literally. I find it frustrating, especially when they dont give me a chance to speak. For instance, my baby niece was having a bad day, and I tried telling her that even though the morning wasnt going well for her- she still had the rest of the...

    Looks Or Character?

    I always get told how sweet and cute I am and it kind of embarrasses me. I am nearly 27 and a lot of people still think I am about 17/18. I am only just 5'3 tall and am very slim, I have tiny hands and feet and I guess that gives off a childlike impression. I have a VERY young...
