    Actually I do enjoy it.

    It give me a reason to question and judge someone's self proclaimed authority. That and to prove them wrong through my abilities.

    Even Though It's Sometimes Necessary!

    It's just a thing and I think it's much worse with boys than it is with girls. Just my opinion!

    I Am The Arbiter Of My Own Life...

    The "people who know" think they can control my every action. They have a so-called "duty of care" because I am obligated to let them do my personal and domestic care. The ONLY disability I have is social... I wish they'd just GO AWAY.

    I have a great example

    for this one. In middle school we were required to read books for language arts as expected. I have no issue with reading. I've consistently read above the stupid grade level system. If I don't have at least one book with me then something is wrong because that almost never...

    Throughout my high school career I've become

    closer and closer to one of my teachers. No, not in a sexual way, but in a string friendship bond. She knew how to help me when I had panic attacks and she knew when to listen to my problems. It seemed as if she were a better mom than my own real mom. So, I went through...

    "You can't be friends with him cause I said so!

    He creeps me out." "WOW I can't believe you like that guy he looks so ****** ratty." Bla bla ****** bla. Always trying to control my life and make sure I never leave your claws. Well guess what? You will never have to deal with my taste in men or the people I like being friends...

    Even when I know I actually can't do something,

    I still hate hearing someone tell me I can't. For once I want someone to actually believe in me, not just some empty words, but actual belief I can do something.
