    Want A Desert Island

    Not To Be A Pedant, But...

    It seems like most people posting stories in this group are confusing "antisocial" with "asocial". Being antisocial isn't just being shy or frequently / always wanting to be alone, it is marked by hostile or inappropriate behavior. Not liking parties would be asocial, whereas...

    Why do people assume that

    if you look "able bodied" that you don't have mental of physical hurdles to overcome on a daily basis?I'm tired of people thinking they know me, or what I go through on a daily basis.

    I have some friends and I love them.

    But I will and do avoid seeing or hanging out with them. Even if I haven't seen them in forever I'd rather stay in my room. I feel bad because I can't tell them that. I make up lies saying why I can't hang out with them.

    I really want to buy a bunch of cats

    and give them regular names like megan and caleb so when people ask if I have plans I can be like "yeah I'm hanging out with Michael today" so they'll think I'm social and actually have friends when in reality I'm sitting at home with a bunch of cats.
