    Talking to strangers on the phone.
    It happens sometimes but not all the time, I can't have people close to me, I just get really nervous and fidgety and have to move away as quick as possible.
    When people talk about depression and suicide. it's not happened personally to me, but to someone i'm closely related to. I hate how people casually pop it into the conversation "i'm so depressed i'm gonna kill myself tonight" and laugh. They don't know but it's still annoying.

    i've always wondered like what impacts your lives but people dont know about it?

    for example i'm allergic to nuts but alot of people don't know it
    Ditto, it's a nightmare Although it depends on how allergic you are, if a crumb of peanut touches my lips my throat starts to close. I hate it!!

    me too!! wow i thought i was the only strange one!

    Its really horrible, I don't like any of those things but I'm really bad when it comes to making phonecalls. I can ring my mam, dad and sister but other than that I try my hardest not to phone anyone. I don't even phone my boyfriend if I don't really have to.

    I don't think anyone other than my mam realises I have this problem. I have actually considered going to the doctors about it becasue it is starting to ruin parts of my life. I finally decided I wanted to learn to drive and have had the phone number of a friends dad whose a driving instructer in my phone for a few months now but I just can't bring myself to phone him and ask for lessons
    I'm really getting sick of this problem.

    I think it's actually quite common. I don't like making phone calls either. Although now I live by myself I'm getting over it. I don't really have much choice.

    Wow. Do you mind if I ask if you're a musician, or an artist? What sort do you have, and how does it affect you?

    I've some kind of unknown illness which they think might be ME, but really don't know, which means I'm taking high level painkillers on a daily basis to keep me mobile. Most of my friends know I get 'aches and pains' but seem to think I'm popping the pills for fun.

    I can't stand people suggesting, even inadvertently, that I'm stupid. It makes me so so angry. I know I'm not a genius, but any suggestion that I've done something wrong, or misunderstood something or, even worse, don't grasp a concept drives me absolutely nuts. I usually keep my temper hidden though.

    - Anxiety when walking alone, anywhere really, though more specifically down the highstreet. It actually makes me nervous as hell; believing I look like a leper, though shortly afterwards seeing my reflection, to be reassured I'm dressed well, look good, and don't look odd in the slightest. Despite this realisation, I can't shake this nuance.

    - Constant cleaning of my room/current working environment. I'm not even kidding about how bad this is. Since I've had respiratory illnesses quite frequently as a child and when growing up, I make it a point to treat dust and it's ugly kith as though it's the devil incarnate. Ousting the walls, window sills, desktop, wardrobe... ad infinitum. This is only a fraction of the cleaning!

    - Burning desire to learn. This isn't a bad thing at all, unlike the previous two, though still, it affects me quite considerably. I probably read between six to eight hours a day, whenever possible (if I get two or so hours in, maybe less, I feel unfulfilled, or perhaps even wasteful, even though this isn't the case). I genuinely love learning, and consider it time spent very fruitfully indeed, not to mention enjoyable.

    - Speaking well. 'Common', or pedestrian speech patterns irk me to no end, especially from those who consider themselves fairly intelligent. I'm a very intelligent guy, and I make it a point for my voice, choice of words, opinions and other banter sound exactly so. Obviously, when around certain friends or people, I'll speak as they do, as to not make them feel uncomfortable and/or alienate myself.

    Four of the first things which came into my head; probably more, though they're obviously not that important if I can't summon them up instantly.

    Its a big thing for me. I never tell anyone. Somehow they all find out pretty soon after meeting me.

    I'm missing a kidney.

    Not a problem in day-to-day life, so most people don't know. But it does cause some odd looks when a kickabout with friends turns into a ruthless and bloody game of dodgeball, and I end up charging round a field screaming "NOT MY BACK! DON'T HIT ME IN THE BACK! NOT MY BAAAAACK!"
    Interestingly, me too.

    Also interestingly, it's never affected me, despite playing rugby, boxing, drinking rather a lot and generally abusing my body...

    I'm terrified of people in big costumes. Like, all-body ones for example the Tweenies or people who advertise things by dressing up as a character like Pudsy Bear.

    My boyfriend didn't understand the extent of this fear until a couple of months ago when he warned me there was one near me in the food court in our local mall. I turned around and it was closer than I thought, and it saw me and came over and touched me with its wing and I burst into tears.

    People just don't understand!

    Also I slightly worry about things that are complete non-issues. Like calling somebody by their name even though I know it's their name, just in case it's... not their name? This also happened when my Mum drove me to somebody's house. She made me get out and knock but I was like, "What if it's not their house?! :eek:", even though I KNOW it is, I can't be sure!

    I'm a weirdo.
