bashfulgirl, just to let u know, there are many martians here on earth
I wish we had like a separate continent where we could all gather cause I often think we are a different species of humans :?
Our only bag thing is the fear we have for eachother. I feel less anxious talking to a shy person, so being all toghether would help a lot.
But u know, sp-ers are the most caring, sweetest and devoted persons on this planet. You can always trust a sp to be a true friend, and our we experience emotions like love far beyond normal people do. So it's a good thing in this afterall.
Joining this forum was a very good thing to do, it will help u a lot. Just drop in here when u feel the need to complain or ask an advice cause u will find nothing but support, understanding and friendship here. :wink:
Btw, the ''I feel like I don't belong in a conversation'' it's all in our brain, it is our worst enemy and you must understand that those are irrational thoughts. I know it's hard to control them, and anxiety too.
I am also quiet like a mouse, and if i try to say something i overanalized what i said all day afterwards and think of what others thought about my words. I try to keep myself occupied with something else and don't let those thoughts conquer my mind.
I can relate to you, you're not alone, there are millions of people just like you and me out there, we just hide our feelings cause we think we are the only one, but by reading about Sp I found that a few of my coleagues has SA and one girl has actually SP, I know that for sure. I can tell that because one of the boys uses to sweat a lot and often hit different things and is kind of isolated, another one is always biting his lips and has his shoulders up and seems so indifferent, but it shows now that it is a struggle inside him, and this girl....no doubt about that she has all symptoms.
And there is this other guy, i'm not sure about him, he is the only one i can rarely relate in class, he isn't anxious at all, he doesn't mind being the center of attention, he speaks with everyone, only chit chat, but he does, but during brakes he remaines in class alone, I don't know about him, it's odd, he isn't anxious at all, so i can't understand his disorder. although i can see he is depressed and he is having a hard time sleeping.
sorry i got offtopic, but remember, u are not alone. :wink:
