Everyone tells me I look really tired all the time. I think that may be why I’m having such a hard time getting a job. I don’t smile very often and yawn sometimes. I’ve been told that yawning makes me seem like I don’t care about anything that’s happening.
I think a lot of these feelings that no one likes us is just a feeling that kinda comes with the desease. Something that we need to overcome. I mean really let’s be serious how many freinds do we really want. My sz says ,not to many.
I think this disease makes you read social cues wrong, which can have an unnerving effect on people, yes. I also think this disease makes you think that people don’t like you, which makes you isolate yourself from people, which makes people think that you don’t like them, which can in turn influence their feelings toward you. A double edged sword.
Although I know all of this intellectually, I can’t internalize it in my gut feelings. I still think people hate me.
