In one post you said this is because of trauma. You say you have PTSD. That is a disorder that has its roots in fear, yet you claim you're not afraid.

This doesn't add up. Can you see that?

If it's an issue of confusion then why not work on learning how people work?

"I may not be smart enough to be afraid of people." This statement doesn't quite make sense, can you indulge me and explain what you're talking about?


The fear is not about being afraid of a person. The fear is about not being able to process what happen. The fear is not external... It is fear of my self. It is fear of be able to control myself or fear that I am not going to understand it or fear of not even knowing something happened. And later be told by someone else I should have reacted differently. I am acutely aware that my emotions or perceptions of things do not match what others at large might experiences under similar circumstances. It is not being able to adjust or adapt to what I need to process inside or not perceive at all. The fear is about being competent to understand 1) what happen happen 2) respond appropriately

I will put it like this
I had cats 1) liked catnip
2) the other had no perception of it and got mad at the other cat as he believe there was something there by the reaction of the others cat but could not process it

As for live performances
Yes your description of not having stage freight is what I experience. As the worse thing that can happen is you start the piece over.

I see what I said does not complete the picture which means the adding up part says you are still missing information.

I do not say I have PTSD
It what the mental health professionals say of me. And based on events that have happened to me created this condition within my brain.

You not only say you have PTSD in your profile but also that you're learning to cope with it.

You're saying that you're reporting what was diagnosed... And how you're coping with it supposedly in spite of you saying "I do not say I have PTSD."
