What's New in Learning Disabilities

Questions? I have intellectual disability and physical disability plus bipolar type 2. I just feel really confused and hurt.

Am I in the wrong?
Should I not have said anything?
Can I do anything to keep things like this from happening?
Did I do something wrong? Am I just talking and he thinks it's flirting?
I have other male friends who have atusim but they don't make me feel unsafe or uncomfortable-Is it just because I dated him?

Back in 2011 I started a college program for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. I learned a lot from the program and gained more self-confidence. I graduated in 2015.

In 2012 I dated one of my friends who has atusim and the relationship did not go well, so I broke up with him..
Ever since that day he has dated other females but has said and done things to me that made me uncomfortable and feel unsafe, and I just feel like i couldn't be his friend anymore because he would say sorry but then go back to what he was doing, then would use his atusim as an excuse.

I have cognitive/ learning disabilities, a physical disability, also bipolar type 2 and have never once used them as excuses.

So go forward to last night were I just told him look you a nice guy but time and time again I have told you about your behavior towards me that makes me uncomfortable and feel unsafe, yet I haven't seen a change in you, when you told me that you would not make me uncomfortable and feel unsafe again.
When I take someone at their word and they haven't changed their behavior I have had to walk away.

All i did was explain myself and he blocked me on everything.

I'm just sad.


Hi! I’m new here #AcousticNeuroma #Fibromyalgia #Diabetes #MDD #PTSD #Anxiety #Deaf #HardOfHearing #ChronicFatigue #chronicvertigo

Yes, I have all those issues and more. I just can’t remember all of them! LOL! 😆 I’m single sided deaf from surgery to remove my acoustic neuroma in 2009. They went through the ear and also pushed aside my brain to cut most of the little bugger out. They cut my balance nerve. The other side was supposed to pick up & stabilize me, but it’s lazy. I’m still unsteady after 14.5 years.

My most recent dx’s are chronic kidney disease stage 3a (I can’t remember if it’s a or b. It’s the least affected one. I’m working on reversing it.), C-PTSD from 19 years of raising our 2 kids from Russia (both alcohol affected by birth moms so they have permanent brain damage, delayed development, learning disabilities, ADHD, PTSD, extreme impulsive anger issues & more.) , precancerous colon polyps and diverticulosis. Yeah, fun stuff.

I decided to join this group because of the many different diagnoses I have. Plus my kids having many dx’s too. So, HI! 👋🏼

Sometimes you can tell when someone doesn't like you.

My one day programs ffrom the #grouphome . I don't like spenting my hours at the house. This one Young girl, makes me feel unwelcome/uncomfortable. She keepted asking why i was here and when i was leaving. She didn't want me here. She was staring at me. She had a melt down and started puling on the workers Tshirt. She did calm down. But year when im in the other group i feel more comfortable cuz i have people i like talking to and around people who are at my mmore my level. Not being unkind or anything. Just how i feel. That is why i wouldn't wanna live in this grouphome.

And the house hasn't sold yet.

I'M starting to lose #Hope that it will sell. (The house down the street hasn't sold either, 2 offers fell threw). I'M ready for a change and a fresh start. I wanna live close to my cousin. I think i could be happy theire. I feel no real reason to live here anymore. I don't feel i have a reason to. .......... We have some house viewing and no comments/feedback was left. Well My dad may have to lower the price once more. So the house will then be under vaule. At this point i think i just want it sold. Sometimes i wonder is this house cursed or something. Maybe the right person hasn't came yet. Is the reason it is taking so long for some kind of reason.? I've been trying really hard to think postive and praying. #TheMighty #MightyTogether #MentalHealth #Depression #Anxiety #LearningDisabilities #lonely

I’ve just seen this group from @kaden_mc other posts and this seems really interesting
I’ve got a number of issues which get really frustrating at times especially with my brain fog and I’ve now taken the strength to tell people to talk slower to give me time to write it down and to understand it fully as I can’t retain the information
My emails I have learnt to reread before sending as they sound not quite right Lol 😆 but I can laugh a bit now but before I’d be soo upset and distraught with myself.
I don’t work not by choice but due to my chronic health conditions but then I do work to a degree to the detriment to my own health as I’m A Deputy (similar to Power of Attorney) to 2 of My Uncles with Moderate Learning Disabilities and one has Austim and the other one has Challenging Behaviours and Dementia and the last Uncle I was the Primary Carer until he went into Residential Care on 25/9/22 but it’s been never ending problems there.

But hey that’s me saying Hi and Thanks 😊

I had a good afthernoon. It's nice to have meet a new friend. I feel being a adult it's easier meeting new frieds well talking to people. I think the pressure of NOT being in school and the feeling needing to be liked and belong. Caring what people thinks of you. And i joined a games group. Were i feel belong and accpected. I'M glad i went and have fun. I'm polite and just my self. #TheMighty #MightyTogether #Depression #Anxiety #MentalHealth #LearningDisabilities
