I was walking back home from my walk and was thinking how could I help my child to avoid all of these rebellious crap. I have come to a conclusion (at least for now) that if I do have kids, during their pre-teen to late teen, I will send them to Thailand OR we will go live in Thailand for a while. I will not deal with these rebellious and attitude crap.

I can't. I totally freak out but I freeze so I can't get myself to say something in the moment. For some reason people think it's actually appropriate to guide me from behind by grabbing me by the shoulders. The from-behind aspect freaks me out more than anything else. I can't even stand to have people standing behind me or being anywhere near me from behind, let alone touching me from behind.

People think that because I'm blind I have no sense of personal space. It's really annoying. I empathize.

I am so far away from perfect it isn't funny... I am always doing stuff I mean for the good that turns out not so good. I push when I shouldn't and then I regret it. Now I am living with the consequences of a moment I wish I could take back and get a do over. Well I suppose that is kinda how life works.

My hubby can't stand anyone behind him. he lets people go by just so he doesn't have anyone behind him and of course in a restaurant he sits with his back to a wall.


You can get a sign that says "Can't Touch This"

Maybe you can practice a saying so you don't freeze up. Thank you for trying to help but I'm fine...something like that
