This is a thread where you post one thing that nobody in your real life knows about you (only if you're comfortable saying something though) :grouphug:

One thing that nobody in real life knows about me is that I really cannot deal with people standing behind me, which is why when I'm at a bus top I'll deliberately position myself so there's soemthing solid behind me like a wall or the bus stop sign, anything solid so I know there's no human stood directly behind me :o

I can't do math on paper. :(
Division? I don't think I ever fully learned how in grade school.
But the sad thing is, is I can't even do simple things like addition and subtraction long hand. I mean...how dumb can I possibly be?

Luckily it's never been something I've had to reveal to anyone except for once when I had to take an intelligence test for a psychological exam...where I couldn't use a calculator.

===edit===

And omg...I just google searched how to do longhand addition and subtraction and I can't believe I forgot how to do it. xP How incredibly simple! lol #Idiot

I'm the head of a major maffia family, selling weapons and drugs. All my millions are buried in my backyard.

(Just kidding but if the police reads this I won't have to plough up my own backyard this year :p)

Every item I can think of, someone knows it.

Same for me. Only things I can think of have to do with sex and that's not something I'm going to share here.

*checks there's nobody behind her* :eek:

Another thing people irl don't know (I think) is I do still like disney music, calms me down if I get anxious :o )

Nobody in my family knows I have ADD. I'm just a lazy bum.

Bah, that sucks to not have that support/understanding :(

The one doesn't exclude the other :p

But on a more serious note: Wouldn't it be time to tell your family? I don't know your family situation, but in general I could imagine they might be more understanding if they knew you had ADD instead of thinking you are just lazy.

There are people in the world who, when you tell them, become less understanding and treat you worse. Too many of them. :(

I once sleep texted a fellow student (okay, she knows but apart from that nobody)

I tried and I tried, but I could not think of a single thing that I know that is unknown by at least a single person in real life.

I don't think they'd understand. My dad is a classic ADD case.... and true to form, he's in complete denial about there being anything "wrong" with him. :eyebrow:

OK, I thought of something, and perhaps what it is explains why I couldn't think of it at first.

Though a couple of people know about a couple of situations and/or conditions, no one knows what I feel overall related to my neurological and psychiatric disorders, memories of childhood sexual, physical, and psychological abuse, and day-to-day experiences of dissociation, loneliness and suicidal ideation.

That's OK...I wouldn't want anyone to know that feeling.

I do the best I can and get on with it, and I support other people in their bliss of ignorance.


Cheers,
Ian

I am not human.

I am god.

I am a plant.
