Socializing is very difficult for people with schizophrenia, including me. But man, I’m here to tell you that we actually could fit right in. If you heard all the lame, stupid stuff that people say at work you would laugh. People just say so many idiotic things. They say stuff that doesn’t make sense. Man, I feel right at home with these guys AND girls. They give me confidence.
And here’s another secret. I run into so many people in my life who obviously don’t know what they are doing. It’s laughable but sometimes it makes me mad. People are just faking it or making up stuff as they go.
For instance, the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). I have big problems with all the paperwork that has anything to do with my car. I won’t get into details but it’s a complicated mess. I have called the DMV 6 times to straighten out the problems and I have gotten 6 different answers. I don’t know who to believe. I talk to some lady or man on the phone and I call back the next day to double check to see if I got all the information correct and I get a completely different answer. I ask each person if they are sure that what they are telling me is correct and they say yes. A couple of times I was talking to someone there and both of us knew that they didn’t know what they were talking about. Anyway, I have to call back Monday.
