Here are some odd things about me that I can't explain.
I have weird handicaps that others don't have. I cannot get on a ski lift, or on one of those cable cars hanging from a black cable high up in the
air either. Those are terrifying to me and I cannot tolerate them at all. Period. To me, those things are death. They feel very unsafe and extremely
dangerous and are the equivalent of suicide to me. Yet most normal people get on them like a routine with no fear. I don't get that. I also don't
like ferris wheels. I simply feel like I'm in great danger whenever I am high up in the air. But I can fly on airlines though.
Also, I can't hop between rocks in a river or cave as easily as others can. The sloping wet rocks look dangerous and slippery. It takes me a long
time to make every step because every step feels dangerous so I have to be extra careful with every step. Wet rocks are not safe to step on, of
course. That's obvious. But again, everyone else seems to be able to jump across them easily, and much faster than me. Even dumb people can hop
through wet slippery rocks at a normal pace and leave me in the dust, making me feel handicapped. Why is that? How can something unnatural and unsafe
be so easy for everyone else except me?
Do you have any explanation for that? Is it cause I lack coordination, athleticism, or spatial ability that average people have?
I think I must be impaired athletically, cause even when I was skinny and thin, I was always the last person behind in hiking groups or in PE class
when we had to jog several laps as part of our warm up exercise. Only chubby kids were as far behind as me, yet I was skinny and had no endurance in
jogging at all, whereas everyone else was ahead of me. Perhaps I lack endurance or drain more easily than others for some reason.
I also notice that some people don't have to concentrate when they drive or get nervous/anxious about other cars near them. Many guys are able to
change lanes without even turning their heads to look at their side mirror or the lane next to them. How can they know that they won't hit another
car when they change lanes so quickly without even looking? When I drive, I have to turn my head to the side to see that the lane is open before I
change lanes. So it takes me extra time to do it. It is even harder to do on a highway where the road is curving. But many guys change lanes without
looking. How do they do that safely? I don't think the rear view mirror can tell you if there's a car right next to you or not. Plus I don't trust
mirrors either. I only trust my own eyes when I'm changing lanes.
It seems that there are things that average people have no problem with, that I have a huge problem with. Yet I have talents and abilities that few
people have. And I am far more accurate than others too.
Did you know I always got a D in biology class cause I could not memorize tons of vocabulary words? I have a good IQ of 120 yet I cannot memorize raw
data for tests. Even if I tried, it would just go in one ear and out the other. My mind kept wandering in school. I could not force it to concentrate.
Instead, I felt sleepy or my mind turned to sexual fantasies for escape. I only did well in English and History, or humanities type classes. And I did
well in math up to Algebra too, since it only required basic logic and accuracy in arithmetic. But I was terrible in Calculus cause it involved
memorizing too many boring formulas.
I also lose to average people in the simple card game called Concentration or Memory - you know, that game where you flip over two cards to try to get
matching numbers, and whoever gets the most pairs wins, etc. It's a game of raw memory. Chinese/Asian people are especially good at that game, since
they have photographic memories of cards for some reason. I don't know why. But any average person can beat me at that game. I have a horrible memory
of raw card numbers and data. But in Chess and Scrabble, I can beat over 99 percent of people (in America that is, Europe is another story). Why is
that? Have you known anyone else like that before?
It's weird being different from everyone, isn't it?
