I was born with this. People think it's weird and stare at me even to this day. And some people think that because my eyes don't work right then neither does my brain. I was rudely told by a neighbor a few years ago that no one wants to be friends with me because I don't drive. I feel like people don't want to be friends because I'm different* . If they would take the time to get to know me they would see that I'm a nice person.
You know...the people who are so focused on "normal" have so much to learn...there is no NORMAL! I hate to sound like I am repeating myself, but these people usually have such low self-esteem that pointing out other's "flaws" is the only way they can try and feel good...which is funny, cause they never feel good anyway...Hugs my dear friend...you are awesome.
