Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I'm not British which probably explains it.

Also, I work in AI but not in making humans extinct..at least not all of them...

What bothers me is though that I've just spent two hours online again when I just wanted to browse for fifteen minutes while relaxing with a cup of tea. And now I want another cup of tea. Honestly, I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm browsing my life away.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I said something to try to express empathy to someone who I know is a toxic person. It predictably backfired and now my social anxiety is flaring a lot and I canít stop replaying the conversation.

It doesnít help that I truly donít fit in with either clique. Iím so tired of having to bite my tongue *all* day long. I work in a high school. Iím tired of feeling like Iím back in high school.

Thanks for all the kind words Fuzz Fuzz McBuzz Buzz.

I think I'm coming across as an a-hole to people...cause sometimes I can be a bit too blunt. I can say things very directly without running them through filters first to make them sound polite.
In my head I don't see myself as a jerk at all...I'm actually very confused a lot of times when I say things and people are put off by it.

I think I may have a bit of very high functioning autism going on...and I think this is a part of that.

And sometimes I feel like I just can't stand around when certain things are happening. I feel compelled to speak out.
It doesn't happen too often...but it does happen.

I understand people's reactions to me after I think about it most the time. I'm just too up front. I don't come across as angry or mean...I just come across as cold I think. I don't say this stuff with a negative attitude...though I probably come across that way sometimes even though I don't mean to.

And I'm in no way a bully about any of this stuff...I'm also VERY open to discussion and hearing people out when I get this way. In fact that what I want most the time when I'm doing this...I want a mature discussion.

I don't know...I'm just a very logical thinker and I'm honest and sometimes I'm too blunt and frank for people...and I think I'm so honest they just don't know how to react to me sometimes.
I don't mean to come across as being an a-hole or anything. I'm just calling things out as they are.

I just feel misunderstood sometimes.

Tyger I never fit in anywhere either. I also replay conversations. I can relate but I don't have advice except maybe try to distract yourself with something fun. Don't waste time on toxic people. You tried. You were nice. If they can't accept that it's not your problem.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I've got two dishes in the oven and one on the hob. I feel like a domestic goddess. I just wish I'd wasted only one hour rather than two because now of course I'm way too late and can't finish anything.

I've been baking some decent muffins though (even though fuzzling begs to differ though I just can't understand whY. Even hubby likes them). I need to leave I latest 45min. The kitchen is a mess and I haven't even showered yet

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Hob=burner. I would love a muffin.

And if work wasn’t bad enough, there is a car that’s been intermittently beeping all night long. Our ahole next door neighbor was banging on the girl across the street’s door so hard I thought he was knocking on our door. And yelling. I don’t think it’s her car that’s the problem.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

This is the 5th time I've forgotten to turn off the stove/oven in the past few months. What is going on? No wonder everyone keeps complaining my mind has suddenly gone downhill since retirement.

Have you seen this one yet? Maybe it will help. Should at least put a smile on your face.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

...i can't sleep...I Can't Sleep...I CAN'T SLEEP!!!



I slept for 4 solid hours, but then I woke up feeling very much so awake and unable to fall back asleep.
Been going through this for over a week now...I'm not liking it a bit and it's causing daytime tiredness.

I saw my pill lady on tuesday, but she mentioned something about how they're really cracking down on prescription meds in my area...so I suggested instead of trying sleeping pills...I'd just try melatonin for now.
Only I don't have the money to buy any till next month. /sigh

Ah well...I'm just a bit frustrated.

I have this ball of freaking energy that builds up in my chest and back and it's sometimes painful.
