    someone i met recently questioned whether I have it, given my intelligence but lack of socialness and unable to see things from his perspective (I am quite intelligent, i got top a-level results in my county and study maths and physics at a top uni,)I've never been a very social person, I don't enjoy it and I think people find me socially awkward I developed a nervous tic of neck in year 9. It occurs more on things like eye contact, paying over a counter, if im doing something and someone walks in the room and i see it from the corner of my eye, a loud noise, any sudden movements in the corner of my eye etc , a shopping mall or shopping gallery that is very white, mainly white or silver colours, has always made me anxious-which is quite common in shopping galleries. noises sometimes works me up alot, i recall my eyes watering, and i think cryingg without really being able to explain why, at uni when hall doors slammed because the sound went straight through me,my emotions seem quite high scaled- when im angry, anxious or down In a room i always feel like i need to sit in a corner were i can see everyone and everyone is in front of me. on paper i look good for jobs and get alot of interviews but i've failed a probation period, and tend to be bad at interviews i always pre-plan my coffee or food orders and make sure i have the right change ready- but this could be due to the tic i dont use gestures when i talk and ive often been told i have a monotone voice,

    I am 25 doing a master's. I have 15 mnths out via mental health. I am living with my parents but spend most of my time at my bfs who is 41.I'm not happy with life at the moment & don't feel like myself. I don't want to move in with my boyfriend because I know I'm young & i don't want to be tied down.i was due to sit my exams in Jun but postponed to Aug because my mental health hasn't really improved, also I feel insecure& would have felt uncomfortable leaving my boyfriend alone for a mnth. My money situation isn't great either in Jun, I had just about enough to get me through the exams.I am now in the situation I was last yr, which I knew I would be when I postponed in Jun to study and work at the same time, just about having enough to get out of the house etc, under pressure to raise enough before August whilst studying. (Also 500 down due an abortion)my studies also mean alot to me,so I'd like to be fully there. My parents are the invasive type.I have a strong personality coupled with intelligence & high sensitivity I'm never going to be happy there, that's why I've spent alot of time at my bf's, but since I'm having my doubts I feel the only way forward is solo. Why now? Since I've postponed in Jun I can't see things improving by Aug.i feel like if I get a f-t job now, I can afford to feel in control of my life, this is the only possibility of me mybe being happy that I see. my biggest concern with another yr out of study would be how this may affect PhD applicatio

    2 weeks ago I passed out one morning due to an upset stomach. I had nothing the night before it just came on when I woke up. This usually happens to me every 3 years or so, I pass out from an upset stomach. However, I thought it was good poisoning but continued for a week , with a few days of constipation also. During this week I felt off , weak, tired, sometimes dizzy and a bit of nausea, and hot flushes . I stopped any tablets in case it may be them - sudafes, ferrous sulphate, and it hasn't made a difference. This last week, the hot flushes has reduced and I feel a bit like my self, but still tired and dizzyy time to time Sometimes hot but not as bad as the first week. However the diarrhea and constipation situation is similar , and every night my stomach is quite painful, feeling heavy with cramps . It is still there sometimes during the day but always seems alot worse at night On top of the stomach cramps, I have a generally dull pain towards the right side of my stomach that comes and goes. However two-day s ago this localized pain came on very sharp waves about 5 times in 24 hours lasting only 2-8 minutes. My period is about a week overdue . My appetite is unchanged Thanks

    My ex teacher added me 5 years after i graduated and didnt add anyone else from my class. He liked some of my posts about love and stuff and hinted at meeting in the future. this was Sept-Nov, including a profile picture of mine. Then he just stopped liking anything for some strange reason. And in Feb my birthday I posted a picture of some stripper saying happy bday to me, and the next day he liked the profile picture of some other female ex-student. before this I was the only one he liked, so I get a sense it was out of jealously. Anyway, this is not who I am and what Im about, Im not into sh**** games and all that rubbish so I removed him as a friend. A couple of months later I re-sent him a friend request and asked if I misinterpreted the situation of him wanting to meet me, to which he didn't reply and didn't even ignore my friend request but outright rejected it. He moved to another country the last 4 years but is moving back this year, so I'm kind of hurting that he added me just a year before moving back but now it was in vain, but I don't regret what I've done, because I'm not into games and sh**. But ever since that I've seen he's been adding alot of female ex-students from this other country. He is also married. So does he actually like me or is he just after female student attention? However the other students he's adding are from the other country, so there's not really a chance he could 'hook up' with them anyway.

  • Pull out method, unprotected sex, day 14, egg release day, should I take a morning-after pill or not?

    The pull-out was well clear, so none of that got inside me, it s just the pre-*** I m a tad concerned about. However there was only one ejaculation, and I think two would have increased the chances. Should I take a morning after pill or should I be ok? Ta.

Or he s afraid of the unprofessional situation , in which case shouldn t have selfishly triggered me. I think i should remove him since he is no longer interested clearly .
