Seeing that other animals can be territorial, mark the place. I wonder how we would protect our terriitory before the house as we know it was invented. Although, postcode wars are illogical, I wouldn't be surprised if a biologist or psychologist found that it was somehow part of human nature. But then the more I think about this, this also can probably explain racism if looked into.

I wish I could just be normal and fit in. Instead I have to be this disgusting piece of ugly crap.

What a miserable day out. I'm supposed to be going to pick up a can opener from argos in sainsburys, but I think I'll skip it.

Also wondering what was going on in Deptford market yesterday. Looked like they were filming a lotto advert or something.

Seems quite extravagant for a can opener, is it a special one?

I bought a new one on Sunday... 55p!

We've had a long history of bad luck with can openers, so I just thought I'd get one where I could see from reviews that it works. This one has around 450 reviews resulting 4.5/5. £6 though.

^ My 55p one was to replace the identical one that'd worked great for about seven years! (That one must have cost 40p or something at the time ) It only stopped working because I dropped it and the bit that grips the top bent.

It should be law for all cans to have a ring pull though.

The crowds of people at uni are already causing a lot of anxiety. All the noise of people chatting turns me into a wreck. I need a lie down just seeing this many people in one place.

I hope that eases for you as time goes on and your course goes well. Its excellent that you went for it and got in.
I try to think of it as white noise or hubbub. Thinking of it as general hubbub helps me feel separate from it, keeping a little bit of personal space also. Defaulting to headphones might help when possible if it gets too bad.

The first week is the busiest period - if you can just manage to get through this small part then you're over the worst of it.

I think I'm turning into a postman

From never wearing shorts, dabbling last year, this year I've wore them none stop since mid march. I'm guessing I may need to find big boy pants again come October but my milk bottles are enjoying the freedom

It's quite amusing you can't see a single..tan mark or line or anything to indicate I've had exposed legs for 6 months

I'm thinking how I've never fitted in anywhere. Not within my family, School, further education, work. Not even on a forum for SA sufferers. I don't know if it's because there's something intrinsically repellent about me that people pick up on or whether some of it is in my head, as one or two people have told me. Whatever. The feeling of being an utterly horrible and unlikeable person is an inescapable hell to live with.

That feeling is horrible. It's how I feel irl most of the time because I feel so weird/different in comparison and am guarded and find it difficult to make friends or to even want to make friends with other people. I'm not to fussed about fitting in these days, but maybe it's because you grow used to it?

p.s. No offence to anyone else (because all of the other people are also great) but you are thee nicest, sweetest, caringest, most understandingest person on sauk.

You do fit in here, your an integral part of the place your certainly nor repellent in any way!

I do know how you feel though, pretty much sums up how I feel about myself.
I sometimes think were always are own worst enemies.

This is exactly how I feel, but it's not just a matter of fitting in, it's the fact that I've never had a lasting relationship, of any kind, in my life. I've had maybe one friend who didn't ultimately end up hurting me, and now it seems impossible to make new friends. For some reason unknown to me, when I make some effort to be friendly with someone, they actually make a point of rejecting me, when I think personally I'm just acting on instinct and just being friendly. Usually this is long before I would feel offended, but it has a negative effect on my life and I'm honestly just left here wondering what I could be doing to cause this behaviour. In fact the only girlfriend I ever had seemed to be my girlfriend just so it would actually offend me, rather than be something I wanted also, because it is true that I don't want people that make a point of rejecting me in my life anyway.

I've posted about this before, but a big part seems to be people not thinking for themselves, so maybe people see me as having no friends, and so they feel well noone else likes him enough so neither should I. That is only a small part of it, the reasons are complex but I don't think people even know themselves. I just constantly end up disappointed by people in my life nowadays.
