How did your day go? Or how's your day going?

I opened the mail my mother forwarded to me and saw: my short term disability claim had been denied (they’re claiming they don’t have a form that I’m staring at rn); a $500 bill for my third finger surgery that my ex will never pay me back for, even though holy shit guess whose fault it was I broke anything in the first place; and had to deal with my roommate stealing my teakettle plug adapter to power surge the whole house. It was finally one of those good days. My dad got discharged from hospital yesterday (he had covid). I was really scared and the past week was tough. I am so happy that he is recovering well.
I've just been chillin', but then the reddit ads switched to the annoying one which kinda ruined the vibe. I'm not doing anything today and I love it. I actually have had decent hours recently, which is nice. I kinda wish I had someone to chill with because being alone all the time isn't really enjoyable. But then I remember that people don't like me and most have the wrong impression but don't give a shit.
Cant complain. I just got out of lunch and was about to get to work but I got a last-minute email about a meeting at 2:30PM today. It's 1:44 now. I don't have enough time to get in the lab and do what I was going to do before the meeting so now I'm just kinda checking emails and chillin.
This morning I had a mock exam which I will probably get a below average mark for, but it would be no less than what I deserve as I only revised the night before. Tomorrow I have another mock exam which I have done basically no revision for, and I should've done some tonight really. That exam is in the afternoon so I will do some revision in the morning, and hopefully get lucky with what is in the paper. My day has been mundane, but fine. I'm watching my brother until my mom gets home from work, which is nothing too out of the ordinary for me. Aside from that, I'm trying to work on watching everything on my clogged-up-beyond-repair DVR. It's frankly beyond ridiculous how many movies I've recorded and then promptly didn't watch. After I finish that I'll get some reading done. Already had dinner, which was soup with lots of hot sauce added in. As for my week overall, I've been having a highly eventful one. We're searching for a rental to move into in order to fix our house up to sell. This is my childhood home and so it'll be surreal to live in a different house, finally. Good. I went to counseling today and talked about enjoying activities and received good advice to make myself grow and be happy so I don't need to depend on (often one sided) romantic relationships. Also cleaned off mud from new pink shoes I put on to feel good about myself. All in all a pretty good day.

Could you tell us a little about your condition of dyscalculia?

StephenInd’s Profile PhotoStephen Ind
Sure thing!
Well, to begin, dyscalculia is a disability and not a condition. It’s part of the Specific Learning Differences and it’s basically the same as dyslexia, but with numbers.
With dyscalculia, the capability to automate processes of and with numbers is affected. This can result in different ways.
1. People can have trouble recognizing and writing the number. It’s like the same when people with dyslexia have trouble recognizing a letter. It’s not automated, so it’s hard to simply call it up in your brain.
I luckily don’t have this problem, however, I tend to miscall numbers, especially when there are two numbers together, for example 24. In English you say twenty four, but in Dutch you basically say ‘four and twenty’, so the opposite. I’ve always had trouble with that.
2. People with dyscalculia can have a huge problem with automating formulas. It’s the same as with recognizing, they’re not stored well into the brain and it’s hard to get to it too.
I have this. I can basically do + formulas with numbers up until 12. Anything above that is a mess and it becomes blurry and chaotic, but also empty in my mind. Very frustrating, considering I had YEARS of extra training and help.
Don’t even get me started on math lol.
3. People with dyscalculia may have trouble telling the time.
Luckily this one doesn’t apply to me. I do have trouble with time management though, which is also related to dyscalculia.
4. People with dyscalculia may have trouble with spacial awareness.
For example: having trouble to see and knowledge that there are three apples in a basket on the table. Without necessary having to count them.
Due to the fact that dyscalculia is linked to executive functions, my long term and short term memory are affected. This means I have to write every task I need to do down, otherwise I’ll forget about it. I tend to take pictures and videos, these are my memory cues for later. I have trouble organising and planning and my inner-speech is affected. Which means I don’t have inner-speech unless I actively do so.
If you have any more questions about this, please let me know! 😊

How often do you lie?

I try to avoid lying. I just don't say anything if I don't want to answer a question. Awkard I know, but I don't really care. Someone can ask how I'm doing and I'll just say hi, how ya doing? Apparently it's just a greeting here in the south and it doesn't require a response.
If I said frequently, I think it would be misleading...but like, example time, if someone if I'm not close to asks me if I'm okay. I will say I'm fine every time. It's more of a conversation ender, than an attempt to mislead.... Or like if someone I'm really not interested in is hitting on me, I will say that I am seeing someone or that I am not looking for a relationship. I found that while a lie, it is usually effective at getting people to leave you alone.
I am so used to lying because of past relationships. I have social anxiety and I used to lie a lot to get away from social situations such as meeting with friends. I also used to say that I was fine when I clearly wasn't. Nowadays I lie less often. I still do it sometimes to escape meeting with 'friends' whom I've realised make me uncomfortable. I'm learning to tell my partner and real friends how I'm really feeling instead of bottling it up and saying 'I'm fine'. It sickens me to lie. The only 'lying' I do is by neglect......neglecting to tell people what I really know about them and what they've done or said. I hate having to be silent about it, but it's not good for me to unveil all of that right now.
Important stuff or stuff that I'd have to lie more to cover, almost never. Not really to personal friends/family/etc other than sometimes by omission if telling them is gonna be a whole bunch of trouble for no benefit. Trivial shit at work like "oh yeah just putting the finishing touches on that report" that I haven't actually started, pretty often. If I'm going to get things in on time regardless I don't really want to hear about how I'm bad at time management.
Almost never, can't remember the last time but it was probably small, if anything I'm overly upfront and clear I've been called brutally honest but Its not to hurt feelings just because I value transparency and don't sugar coat things
Oh and I lie to men who try to chat me up, weirdos in my social circle who get too pushy, people who want to know too damn much about any subject I want to keep private. For example I am on disability payments right now and if someone asks me what I do I give one of maybe a dozen answers that range from "as little as possible" to "self employed" to "raising two kids" and a bunch of other things that are technically true but also deeply deceptive and do not lay my life open like a book for them precisely as they'd hoped when asking that question.

There is no reason you cannot work from home doing customer service online. You are a lazy leaching p.ig

So like...you have no idea how disability works...and how disability is the government giving me back the taxes I paid when I did work (which was since I was 15) disability is based off of what YOU pay taxes, you pay into disability every check you get.
Maybe learn how the government works instead of ranting and raving like a Facebook fighter. It's embarrassing enough you don't understand medical insurance

Imagine you met yourself from ten years ago, what do you think they'd think of you now? And is there anything you'd want to say to them?

Ten years ago I was still debilitatingly ill but I was up and about a bit more. I could get around more easily with crutches and didn’t need a stairlift etc. I also hadn’t suffered a stroke or been hospitalised for serious infections (other than sarcoidosis).
Mentally I was probably worse as I was going through government disability assessments plus potentially facing bankruptcy.
I wouldn’t want to say anything to myself, though I guess it would have been nice back then to know that I become financially stable and win my disability cases.
Though with that knowledge, past me might not deal with it with the urgency and desperation I actually did, thus the future may change … so it’s probably left untold!

Can i ask your opinion. At what age can you leave a kid home alone for 2-3 hours? & at what age can a kid bathe without adult supervision? I know different states have different laws & guidelines so i just want your personal opinion 🙂

I wouldn't leave my 9 year old sister alone in the house but my 16 year old sister I would. It also depends on how they are in general too. I wouldn't leave kids on their own, even if they are really smart like my younger sister is. My sister has the intelligence of a 20 year old even though she's little she's really smart for her age, but I still wouldn't leave her alone in the house. She can also bathe alone but again it's because of how smart she is etc. I wouldn't leave my cousins in the bath alone as they are 2 and 5 and even though one of them is also smart for her age the other one is just too small and also has a disability

Would you rather be blind or deaf (neither is not an option with this question) and why? 🤔

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
it took me three months to finally decide how to answer your question, yentl—
I would rather be deaf.
given my career and lifestyle, I depend far too much on my eyesight to let it go completely. also, my older sister is an interpreter — so, in terms of convenience in making life adjustments, going deaf would be the better option for me.
not that I would wish a disability onto anyone reading this (nor do I mean for this answer to be offensive), but that is what I would pick.

How do you feel about disability right’s

Discrimination against anyone is awful. And hating a person just because of their disability or color of skin is cruel. I think being a person is the bravest thing you can do. A lot of people have opinions on what type of person you should be. But as long as you're just being yourself and not hating another you're moving in the right directions.

Whole time Inspired movie character or movie?

suh6908’s Profile Photosuhail A K
Every movie is unique every story is unique each movie 🍿🎥 gives different kinda inspiration 😻 and specifically can't mention one! But still some of which I remember 😅
The Shawshank Redemption
The film gives a strong message of friendship and perseverance and lets us have an insight of the lives at Shawshank. It's an inspiring story of hope, faith and bonding.
The Pursuit of Happyness
The movie while highlighting the father and son bond also has the message of never giving up. Yet, the small bits of happiness they find in their togetherness provides a heartwarming plot for the film.
Life of Pi
The struggles and adventures of Pi, added to the extraordinary portrayal of nature, make the movie not only inspirational but also a visual treat.
Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam
This movie shows the hard works and efforts he did to overcome his disability. It gives us the motivation to accept ourselves and fight against all stereotypes.
Ayalum Njanum Thammil
The transformation of a slothful doctor to the most renowned surgeon is an inspirational story for many. The film takes you through love, struggle, dedication, and hard work.
Mili
It is a story of an introvert girl with much insecurity, who later gains confidence and fights against all timidities of her life. It motivates everyone to improve and discover our true selves.
3 Idiots
I don’t think I need to say anything about this movie because everyone knows how great this movie is. This is one of the greatest motivational movies that represent college life and friendship very well.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
This is one of the motivational movies that will inspire you to lead a free and stress-free life.
Taare Zameen Par
This movie is for all those parents out there who wants their children to be something in future.
English Vinglish
The film was a statement on society encourage prejudices and how self-worth has nothing to do with such contrived expectations.

Pensez vous que vous allez mourir vieux ?

28. I’m 19 now. Ever since I was 11 I had a suspicion I’d be in a long term relationship, end it, and then get murdered by my boyfriend. Maybe it wasn’t the best idea to let young one watch law and order. But honestly, I think this will happen. If not I’ll die of cancer before 33. I know I’m not going to be a grandparent-even though I want to. When I was a child I feared death, too. Then I went to college and the fear ebbed away. I got caught up in friends, hobbies, and life milestones, and those kept the existential dread at bay for decades. Now I'm 50 and death is gnawing at me again, but it's not so much from age as from disability. Even so it doesn't horrify me as much as it did from ages 15-18. Those were the worst! As for death, I started really thinking about it after my daughter was born when I was 40, and then I started worrying a bit more about it when I came down with an illness that turned into pneumonia, which began a three-and-a-half month-long battle with a variety of illnesses. For nearly four months straight, I was coughing constantly, and I thought I had lung cancer. Turned out it was bronchitis and all my health issues were caused by a black mold problem in the house we lived in at the time. I'm breathing much easier now, but I still think about death and wonder if I'll be alive by the time my daughter is grown and independent. I guess it's more acute with me because she was born at a time in my life when my classmates were becoming grandparents.
I fear death much less. Mostly because I had some pretty great adventures when I was younger. I have slept with beautiful women, gone to untold great music shows, done my fair share of drugs and alcohol, climbed a huge mountain, traveled throughout the US, Europe, and Japan, published underground weirdo stuff, moved across the country a few times, and had /have a bunch of really great friends. No kids, but that was my choice.
I've obsessed on death and existential matters for as long as I can recall. I've had a couple of close calls. Almost drowned and almost choked to death. The almost drowning (happened twice) was a panicky feeling of being trapped. The choking was different - same thing if you think about it - the lack of oxygen, but I actually had a full obstruction and no air getting in. Straight up lizard brain panick for the first realisation followed by this strange distant detachment as my body convulsed in violent coughs and vomiting. My brain was functioning with an internal conversation of how ridiculous it would be to die like this and all the while I felt none of the physical sensations until after. It wasn't terrible. It has made me less afraid of how I'm going out as I have a confidence that it's going to be okay.

What was your childhood dream job? Did you follow that dream? What was your dream job as a kid and what made you realise that job wasn't right for you?

I don't really have a dream job today - being retired now that isn't necessary. My dream job as a child? I had several but the top ones were always musician and pilot. Neither came true, well I did do a tour of Europe with a band when I was 18 that was my only truly professional gig. I was an amateur / semi pro musician for years. But as that simply costs you money rather than earns it I doubt it counts. I don't even get royalty cheques any more now. I just did a job that paid the bills and I was ok at. The pilot thing did sort of lead to that, as I left school I was offered a trainee software engineer position at a local firm that made avionics and my interest in aviation at that time led me to applying there etc. I wanted to be a musician. But I have a learning disability that makes it really hard to learn things at a normal pace, so I'd keep getting frustrated trying to learn songs when I was little. By the time I understood how to teach myself things and actually get it to stick I realized that making a good income with it would be incredibly difficult/impossible. I want to go to school and become a sound tech or producer, but there's not much money in that either. I don't know, the things I'm interested in aren't good enough for a full time job so I've made my peace of having a shitty retail job forever. Maybe be a producer on the side, one day. Edit: I wanted to join the army too, but mini 11-14yr old me thought self harm would fix my problems! So now that's completely out of the question, lol.
I wanted to teach music starting sometime around middle school. I was immediately discouraged by teachers/friends because of everyone's music experience in school. It turned me off of the idea for a few years until I was nearing the end of high school and had some of the best experiences with music with my school's program. I am now in my third year of undergrad for music education, and I just started my first round of clinical teaching at our university's lab school, teaching a first-grade class. I fell in love with teaching children and feel like I am making a positive impact on their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue on with music later on. It feels like my students love the hour I have with them each day and are always looking forward to it!
I never got that bike license, but from 2002-2006, I travelled over 26,000 miles up and over and across the US from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean on a bike with my then boyfriend. I lived my dream of touring the mountains and deserts and small towns and ghost towns and back roads of the United States, all on a 1992 ElectraGlide FLH. I met people and saw things I could never have imagined as a kid wanting to go across the country. The best part of it all was that all of our trips were made in early June or Mid to late September. We missed the motorcycle/tourist seasons.

So you got ADHD too? Didn't you say you had a learning disability a while back too? Idk how you do it Sydney but you seem so focused and obviously very smart and you really don't let those get in your way. You're very inspiring

Yes I have adhd and other learning disabilities. I got diagnosed later as a kid. I was on medication for 5 years! I’m lucky I was able to control it and realize it’s mental and I do still have my moments of my ADHD, but it’s not as bad as it was. It’s an everyday struggle because of ADHD, it does cause other things, like anxiety and depression. There are other “symptoms” ADHD can cause!

How would you describe your intelligence?

I am constantly vibrating with energy, bold ideas, creative intellect focused on problem-solving and a determination to make a huge difference and to turn the tide. I am a vivacious, open and witty man, able to view my everyday life with a contagious humour. My friends would describe me as a person of formidable willpower and keen scientific mind, whose lifelong passion is learning. I believe myself to be of average intelligence but with greater than average education (a Masters and a JD). Education makes a big difference in moving one of average intelligence just a bit closer to the right side of the bell curve.
Most people probably think they're above average, even if they say only slightly to stop themselves feeling like a braggart. Or despite what they think, they lie. If you don't think you're smart, why should anyone else? Generally intelligence is considered a positive trait and labeling yourself as sub-par far from exudes that ever so attractive confident persona we always want to see in others. Truthfully I think the concept of IQ is bullshit and that human intelligence can not be quantified into such a simple number; standardized tests less so but it's the same concept.
At a young age, for whatever reason (most likely as a result of how my parents raised me), I decided I wanted to get good at learning, so I've worked on that for my entire life. I've spent time building the skill of learning and logical thought, and reading tons and tons of books. That's why I score high on traditional markers of intelligence, and I'm convinced that anyone (barring actual barriers to learning such as mental disability) could achieve similar results if they cared to.
Smart enough to be unable to be happy with the same old small town life everyone else is happy with. Doing the same repetitive job and thing day after day. Seeing the same places and people and never becoming frustrated with the lack of change. I pick things up very quickly, but I have a terrible attention span for things that require long term concentration and I don't have the best street smarts. I have an average IQ but it still absolutely baffles me how stupid everyone else around me is. Like. Why the hell are you taking everything personally, and, do you even know how to read?

what advice to you give if you want someone to use the toilet independently and asking constant body/toilet questions ?

I only know a few things. 😊 But! You can choose a potty training toilet and decorate it with cute animal or cartoon stickers or have the adolescent watch television on a screen to keep the child occupied. I would answer their questions as honestly as you possibly can and please be patient. They're learning. A child with a cognitive learning disability needs more 1 on 1 instructions with an adult figure they trust.

thoughts on disabilities?

there's too much ableism in the world, especially internalized ableism that comes from discrimination and oppressive mindsets passed down through generations regarding physical and/or mental disabilities. a lot of people don't realize they're being ableist even when they're attempting to support the disabled community (i.e. saying "you're so strong for surviving disability" etc.), because statements like that are pretty much infantilizing people with disabilities.

Look at yourself & life from the eyes of somebody who's vulnerable / adverse and is going real problem rn you'll realize how privileged / blessed & lucky you are in comparison to million others. Whether you deserve these blessing or not, whether you are merely blessed or lucky.. You never know! If you can't count your blessings then just take a moment & imagine that you are living someone's dream life! 🌈🌻

My friend is right. These girls fake their seizures and always tell people to educate themselves on their pathetic shitty ass stupid epilepsy and they can’t tell anyone what to do cos they aren’t the boss of any of us but themselves. They are assholes and pricks.

Maybe the reason why they’re telling you to educate yourself is probably because they want you to know that whatever disability they have is no reason to tease them about it. They can’t help it. They were born differently but that doesn’t mean that you assholes should judge them just because they’re different.

I've just seen that there's now a blanket DNR on anyone with a learning disability who contracts Covid in the UK (https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2021/feb/13/new-do-not-resuscitate-orders-imposed-on-covid-19-patients-with-learning-difficulties). Thoughts? Coz I'm disgusted! 🤬

That's fxcking disgusting & disturbing and really deeply pisses me off, that honestly really feels like murder to me & like they just don't care to deal with people who are different than them. As a parent of someone who's nonverbal & has different needs I honestly cannot even imagine how i'd feel if someone did that to my son just bc he's special needs. They're just as deserving of receiving all the help they possibly can as anyone else is, unless they themselves decide they don't want it - IF they're capable of doing so.

Internalized stigma, as I understand it. One example could be a person with a psychotic mental illness referring to themselves as "psychotic" and seeing the illness as their whole identity.

I think it’s often justified to own the things about us that contribute to or affect who we are, albeit in a non-wholly-consuming way.
For my part, as an example, it took me a long time to accept - physiologically or psychologically, with terrible consequences - that I was so chronically ill I could no longer do any of the myriad things that had previously contributed to defining who I was.
It took an (aborted) attempt at CBT and then a lot of counselling, then time, for me to finally accept my disability (which I did see as a stigma then) and that it was part of who I am now.

Okay guys and girls I have a disability and it’s called “CP” Cerebral Palsy and I recently went public last year with this announcement to show the world who I am. So my question to you guys is what’s your take on people with disabilities?

Thats awesome that you told the world. Special Needs people are people too. I have Fetal Alcohol Syndrome so far the only online people I told were my friends on here.

Who has a disability!? If you do have one here’s what to remember always. * Always shine * show off yourself with your disability *Never give up!! I have a disability myself so I’m spreading some positive thoughts out there!!💕

I always respected disabled people. This type of people have a strong will. They keep to live no matter what other people say on them.

Your right just because someone has a disability it’s no excuse to be rude to people so what gives you the right to be rude people??? How I see it your being rude too . Two wrongs don’t make a right. Your also very hypocritical

I'd love to see your excuse for going off on someone like this in person if you said something to them and they said "this isn't this" because woooow. But let me guess...you feel big and bad.
I wasn't rude, I wasn't even rude when he got rude first. Grow up and learn that no one has to be okay with someone being rude simply because they might have a disability. Grow skin or get off social media
