That's exactly how I feel

one person will never truly know the experience of another.

YES! I have always, always felt like this. I didn't understand why I was always either ignored or bullied, because in my opinion, I wasn't "that" strange, or weird, or ugly. In the last few years, when trying to make sense of my school years, I've actually said that to people, in slightly different words: that it didn't make sense to me, on the surface I didn't look that different from other kids, and on the inside (and at home) I was just as outgoing and friendly and smart and funny as any of them. I told my boyfriend a few months ago that I always wished just ONE of my classmates would have reached out to me and taken the time to get to know me, but that didn't happen.

The little girl in the video has friends even though she didn't talk at all: that made me so emotional. Even though she struggles, she won't feel ostracized like I and so many of us did in school.

This video affected me so much; I fell asleep at 5am after watching it and woke up before 11. I could not go back to sleep; my mind is racing.

the documentary is a sob story. it tells the viewer to feel sorry for themselves and doesn't really punish them as it should. the best documentary is one that doesn't make excuses for its sufferers and doesn't feed into their self-pity. We need to experience discomfort, pain and humiliation, not fake acceptance, if we're to improve lives.

It's great to see the video and to know that I'm not the only one. We have to somehow accept outselves... but it's so hard though

I clicked on this post by mistake...was trying to click on the haircut thread. Arg. I cant believe this is still out there. This was a long time ago. I participated in it. Feel like I just got punched in the stomach...lots of old feelings. Things are better now though. Made a lot of progress over the SA.

ya punish someone for having SA, so that he gets traumatized even more and never makes a move ever again, that sounds like the right approach. ****ing ***** therapists and doctors who know nothing about humans behavior unlike you.

I think this video was great because it shows us how many people suffers from SA. Wow, I didn't know it was the third most common disorder in the US. I wonder how many suffers from this in my country (Brazil). Unfortunately, not everyone thinks it was a good video.

This link have a full, better quality video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmEJE...eature=related

enjoy it! ^_^

Reading through your post I couldn't help but smile. SO glad its helped.

Just let your dreams be your pilot, your imagination your fuel. Tear up the book and write your own damn rules. Use all that heart, hope and soul that you've got, and the love and the rage that you feel in your gut,

Hello again, to all my friends, together we can play some rock 'n' roll

I was definitely the oddball growing up...I never knew why I was so afraid of interacting with other people...I never told my folks I had panic attacks, ate by myself or escaped to the restroom between classes crying wishing I would just die...Then repeat the same process over an over for years until I finally broke down & tried to kill myself...It was the groundhog day of living hell...I suppose I could be worse off...I could be dead, but I live...And I would like to think I'm alive for a reason...Maybe I can help others in pain...Maybe just maybe I.......Well, I'm here & I love everybody...Having a good positive attitude can help tremendously...I may not be 100% better yet, but I'm trying like heck to get there
