I’m 26 and have done nothing with my life except to have have 3 kidney transplants to keep me alive.
I’ve failed every course I’ve attempted at TAFE, not because I didn’t try, but because I’m stupid. I was fired from my job because I was too ‘physically disabled ’ yet my only disability is that I’m 4’7” (140cm).
Why should I continue to go on when I’m this old and no one still wants me around?
I’m not special, unique, or even an inspiration for others to keep going.
50% of my problems are caused by not knowing where I stand with people. I need people to be blunt and literal and just up front with me. If you don’t like me, if I did something to offend you, if you’re mad at me, if there’s something annoying that I continue to do. I need you to say these things to my face or something. Like I will stop trying to talk to you if it annoys you or, y’know, whatever, but I need to be told.
“Biology’s cruel joke goes something like this: As a teenage body goes through puberty, its circadian rhythm essentially shifts three hours backward. Suddenly, going to bed at nine or ten o’clock at night isn’t just a drag, but close to a biological impossibility. Studies of teenagers around the globe have found that adolescent brains do not start releasing melatonin until around eleven o’clock at night and keep pumping out the hormone well past sunrise. Adults, meanwhile, have little-to-no melatonin in their bodies when they wake up. With all that melatonin surging through their bloodstream, teenagers who are forced to be awake before eight in the morning are often barely alert and want nothing more than to give in to their body’s demands and fall back asleep. Because of the shift in their circadian rhythm, asking a teenager to perform well in a classroom during the early morning is like asking him or her to fly across the country and instantly adjust to the new time zone — and then do the same thing every night, for four years.”—
When I had to get up at 6 AM every morning for high school, it did such a number on my immune system that I used to get sick every month or so. As soon as I went to college where even my earliest classes allowed me to get up 2 hours later than I had to in high school, I instantly went from getting sick once a month to getting sick once a year—even despite the fact that I was no longer getting home-cooked meals, but instead subsisting on Easy Mac and grilled cheese sandwiches as college students are wont to do.
There’s a hell of a lot to criticize about our education system, but school hours alone are a pretty fucked-up issue imho.
you know that “joke” your friend makes about you and the only problem is that it actually hits home and you sit there and realize that they were probably being serious in an indirect way and covering up their true thoughts by passing it off as a joke and then you just sit there feeling like shit for the entire day
Yep, people do it to me all the time, and when I speak up I’m somehow the bad guy for not finding it ‘funny’.
Wow, you try and be friendly on OMEGLE by saying Chat or Roleplay (cause not everybody wants to Role-play with the Johnlock tag) aaaaannnnnnd you get disconnected straight away…. I do say Hi first though…
When I was in preschool there was this really weird system of time-out where they’d put you in this giant plastic bucket sort of like this one:
And the rule was you couldn’t leave the bucket for ten minutes.
In case you didn’t know, I was what the teachers referred to as a “difficult child” which is code for “walking entity of sass” so I was in the time-out bucket quite a bit.
Once they put me in the bucket for thirty minutes— and I thought that was incredibly unfair so I grabbed the handles and shifted my body repeatedly until the bucket and I were out of the classroom, in the hallway, and through the front door. They found me in the parking lot scooting to freedom in the time-out bucket. The teachers were furious and I said, “Hey, I never left the bucket”
So they called my mum and told her what I did and she just said, “Well, he never left the bucket.”
For the last couple of weeks I have been looking up information about the mental illness, schizophrenia for a research project for my psychology class. During my research I found an interesting project that some scientists had put together called, “What Schizophrenia Sounds Like.” After interviewing many people with this illness the scientists compiled a short clip of what a schizophrenic might hear during an episode, or just day to day.
