    Frustrating

    My Dad is hard of hearing and I often have to repeat things at least 3 times before he can make out what i'm saying. I hate to get annoyed with him but it's really frustrating.

    I really hate repeating myself

    either pay attention or don't talk to me. Honestly it just boils my blood. Keep up for heavens sake. Also if you don't get it use context clues come on I know you all had to learn this. Like if it's just one word missing or misspelled your really telling me you don't get it or...

    Just Listen the First Time!

    If you ask me something and require a response, LISTEN when I give it. Don't ask me to repeat it. Don't ask me two days later to repeat it. If I tell you something, pay attention. Nothing ****** me off more than repeating something important over and over again...

    Especially when it comes to very simple things

    like an identification preference or sexual preference/definition for it. Some people have told me I'm being sensitive when someone does something that triggers me to have to repeat myself and I get flustered. But in reality it's not just me being sensitive, it's like Water...

    Several Times

    I have an extremely quiet voice. I always remember in Middle and High school when the teacher would call on me, everyone in the class would stop talking so that the room was dead silent because everyone knew it was hard to hear me, but on top of that...that made me get nervous...

    Left Wondering.

    Sometimes I'm just left here to wonder. Wonder why I feel the way i feel. Like I can't just slide into groups and become apart of it. I'm just an outcast. I always will be, I have to except that fact. I'm too clingy, too whiny, ask for too much. But the thing is, I really don't...

    This is one of the reasons I hate going out with large groups of people I don't know. Weddings, parties, families, whatever. All of them, one by one - who are you? How do you know ...? When did you move here? What do you do? Whereabouts do you live? I think repeating solid...

    Really really really hate repeating myself.

    It happens all the time. Like, to the point where I'm saying the same thing to you 5 times. "Well I forgot what you said" Want me to write it out on your forehead or something? How can someone forget what you told them 5 ******* times.

    Just Listen To Me For Once

    I sympathize to people when I know they can't hear me, or they're distracted by something important. If they have something else to worry about, I get that they just can't leave what they're doing and give all attention to me. The universe does not revolve around me and people...
