I wonder how hard it really is to become NORMAL

I guess i don't want to

This is the really bad part

My disability is such a huge part of what makes me who I am that the idea of being normal terrifies me.

This^...I've gotten so used to being unable to work that I honestly don't know if I could get back into the groove of working.

I've got no idea what it's like to have an actual physical disability... But mentally, i just feel like almost nobody ever gets me...

I function in society alright, some might even say i'm successful... But i don't know. Sometimes i wish i'd fit in better.

But sometimes i feel that my weirdness is what makes me unique, dare i say, even what makes me somewhat successful.

I'm almost 100% onboard with my weirdness. It's like at 97%, but, sometimes, i still question everything.

"Normal" is a mask we wear in public so we can work as a society. In a way, basically everybody's roleplaying every day.

Make them pay! :p

Go get 'em.
If a jury hears any of the stories you've posted 'round here, you'll have their sympathy.
Careful choosing your lawyer.

It has now been determined that the racists fate and mine are intertwined.  Since we can't get along, one more complaint from or about either of us fires us both.

Wow that's a special kind of wrong.


My primary internet went down due to halon system discharging in the record cold.  Down 5 days.
My secondary internet is part of the comcast East coast total biff.  Down 5 days so far.
My tertiary internet ... geez.
I have one question about d&d, and I'm without 1000s people's 10,000+ hours of expertise = dark ages.
Like not even the Superbowl Game Of Thrones Bud Light commercial to cheer me up dark ages.
Give me pseudo-natural Dial-Up , or give me un-death !!

You can AFFORD tertiary internet?

Around here having more than phone 4g + DSL basically puts you on the black market's organ donor list.

Nope.  Can't afford.
I drove 30+ minutes just to catch up on reading.

Honestly, give me 3g with all graphics turned off = more than enough reading material.
But no database searching, no fast refresh etc.
