    Chat Rat

     I must avoid all chat, no matter what the subject, even those that I find fascinating. Others always take me for being presumptuous, snotty, rude, unruly etc. The barest reference toward anything political or sexual for some reason send shivers down the line to anyone...

    I Do It Every Day And It's Killing My Relationships

    Not on purpose; I just say something without actually thinking and I know it's not nice because it's followed by this immediate pause. Honestly, sometimes I wish I were mute because I am a really good writer and I have a great time explaining myself when writing, not speaking. I...

    Yes, It's True...

    Sadly, this happens to me quite frequently.  I have ADHD and one of the primary symptoms is impulsivity, which I seem to have in spades.  So, needless to say, I often find myself opening my mouth and saying things prior to switching on my "brain filter," which...

    Not "feel" But "know"

    Knowing the derogatory but unintended meanings of words before one speaks them, is an art which I have often lacked. I have paid the price for this, in the form of permanently damaged human relationships. There are people who have totally stopped interacting with me in any form...
