    Lost Behind My House

    I have a lot of pets. One of them is a bearded dragon. All spring and summer he eats whatever I can find outside. Bugs of all sorts. Grasshoppers, dragonflies, beetles, crickets. Whatever. Toward the end of the season it gets a little harder to find bugs for him and I have to...

    I Never Know Where I Am

    I have no sense of direction. I can not navigate. I get turned around in parking lots. I have to make a drive 100 times before I "know" where I am going. I also can not follow directions. Before GPS, I got lost EVERYWHERE I would go. Even with a GPS, I get lost. I remember...

    I Can't Think of a Title.

    I can't see how some people can just sense direction. If I know what time it is, and the sun is out, I can sometimes determine what direction I'm going, but that's the only way. I never can "retrace my steps" when trying to figure out where I came from. If I'm going to get...

    Also Lost

     I do not know my right from left unless I pretend to write in mid air and then I can see which is my "right" hand. I have memories of being young and getting lost going to the bathroom and getting back to the classroom. I have early memories of my teachers asking...

    I Couldn't Find My Way Out of a Paper Bag!

    Directions?  They're all Greek to me.  North?  South?  East?  West?  Whatever.  I have never had an internal compass like it seems that most people do.  I think perhaps I used to have one and it broke.  I'm not sure.  The strange...

    Lost

    I have absolutely no sense of direction;  neither can I tell left from right, that is Greek to me, as is north, south, east and west.  I get lost in shopping centres and even on the way home if I don't follow the same route all the time.  I do not drive.  I...
