    Every time I think I'm getting ahead with this issue, I'm not. The number one reason I feel that I am retarded is because people treat me like I am. And that's what it comes down to. They see something about me, absolutely refuse to be direct about it but treat me like I am...

    Retard part 13 Well,

    no matter what I do in life, I simply can't shake the idea that I am retarded. I was told I was different since I was a tiny kid. I was always slow (came from poverty) - so what were the teachers going to do with me? Leave me in kindergarten my whole life? Of course not, so...

    Retarded Part II

    I have really gained a lot by being able to share this 'secret' with people on here- this terrible feeling I have had about being retarded since I was a child.  I use this term not to offend, but because this is the actual term I used for myself my whole life.  I have...

    I haven't been diagnosed

    as retarded, but today I feel extremely retarded and unsure of myself. I feel afraid that I may be retarded. I feel like when I was 8. I feel like people are nice to me because they know I'm so off the wall and have odd beliefs. I feel like a bad mom. I barely did my kids...

    Retarded

    I was diagnosed as retarded in elementary school and I have never been able to shake the label.  I also have a BA degree two years of a master's degree (which I got in Canada).  I realize the reason there was such a difference of assessment of me is because the...

    It Depends On How You See Me

    By definition I am not retarded. I joined this group because I believe this is based more on perception than actual intellectual capacity. I do not see myself as retarded but the vast majority of people I encounter do. I have at times battled with this perception of myself...

    I Am Retarded Part XI

    I finally nailed it. It has taken me 11 stories to get to the point of why people treat me like I'm retarded but now I finally understand why I get treated this way even before someone even knows a thing about me: 1) my rigid motor behavior 2) my physical inflexibility 3) my...

    Retarded Part VI

    Hello all,   I feel like I need to write a story to explain my 'retarded' series to people.  When you feel like you have to write because you are afraid of being misunderstood in the same way you are in real life then you know you are in trouble and you have reached a...

    Retarded Part IX

    With every part I write it brings me closer to understanding why I felt like I was retarded as a child, why teachers thought so, why people even think so today and why in some ways I am and am not. And this part (Part 9) cinches it. This tells my whole story from grades 1 through...

    Retaded Part XII

    I have written a series of I guess what you could 'diary entries' to try to figure out why this label had been applied to me as a child and why people always til this day treat me as if I am retarded. With every story I think I finally nailed it and it would be the last story in...

    Retarded (part V)

    I am a hopeless loser.  The monkey's have finally gotten to me and even though they are monkeys they have revealed the real truth about me- that I am nothing but a loser and will never be anything but a loser.   When I was growing up 100% of people hated me.  I...

    What's Worse?

    Being retarded or being retarded with full realization of that fact?  Further, does knowing your retarded make you a little less retarded or just  horrified?

    Retarded Part VIII

    I think I hit the nail on the head with this one: the main reason I feel retarded is because I am so so so naive. I have been taken advantage of by criminals since I was 5 years old and I am now 43- time again and again and again, and I don't have any defense against it...
