I do have issues in public. I avoid parties, I absolutly hate if people stare at me. I don't feel comfortable in public places. Jeff and I almost broke up because he loved to go to bars. I felt so akward in bars. He stopped going for me. I feel like my face and my head is on fire in public situations. My hands tingle and I feel like everyone is staring at me about to pounce. Also, I have issues processing emotion. I don't understand sarcasm. I guess it's some kind of avoidence technique. I do fine online but face to face is the problem. I don't have any none family or online friends, I was never social. I don't understand when I screw up in public situations, like making someone mad. I can be overly blunt and have no sympathy. Oh well, I am so used to it, it's just part of who I am anymore. I am thinking that maybe all of these disorders are coming out to explain all behavior. There is even one called ODD or defiant disorder. Apparently bad kids have a disorder caused by parents slacking in discipline and then suddenly giving them discipline. Disorders are all over the place anymore.
