"Do you work here" no no I just stand at the staff desk and am logged into a staff computer and am wearing a staff lanyard for shits and giggles b/c clearly nobody who isn’t a woman 50+, a dude, or 100% conventional-looking could ever be a librarian

Good lord a student wheeled his chair straight back into me as hard as he could because god forbid he’d pay attention to where he’s at in a public space and when I exasperatedly said “Excuse me” all the other students nearby looked around like I was some kind of asshole for daring to sound less than pleased about it
I bet Daniel Ash wouldn’t act like that because he has manners and an understanding of cause and effect

Let’s play a game called “How many buttons for offensively-named post-punk bands can Gorgonetta wear on her various work jackets without anybody noticing”
[Sex Gang Children, Alien Sex Fiend, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Gun Club, Christian Death so far, not counting my Nixa button, which is potentially offensive but largely mysterious]

No one has said this yet, so I feel I must.
THANK YOU FOR THIS.
So many people don’t seem to understand that social anxiety can manifest itself in multiple ways. Some people will just dismiss that you have social anxiety if you don’t fit into what they perceive it to be, and that lack of understanding can be really hurtful. So thank you for this.
(And as my personal comment, I fit into behavioural and cognitive.)
i shake so badly irl, pretty much constantly. also hey Fear-Based Decision-Making, more like my life, lmao that was even the gist of that post I made
I don’t get this, but most of my friends/partners do.
I actually get every single one of these except for the eating in public thing, because hell, nothing is ever gonna stop me from eating. [EDIT: And the twitching, I don’t get the twitching.] I think I’ll print copies of this to have at each job in case someone A: hassles me or B: legit wants to understand what I’m dealing with. Plus, it reminds me that I’m not a loser, I have an actual problem and do pretty well at living with it every day given its severity.
[Mental Illness Stigma BINGO card, featuring such classics as “You just need some self control” and “Everyone gets depressed/anxious”]
Fuck you if you have said any of these to someone who is suffering. Fuck. You.
i have literally been told ALL of these many more times then once. many of them are ingrained in me so i think it to myself about myself. really need to work on that
I’ve heard most of these, and internalized a good chunk of the ones I’ve heard. :/
This shit kills.
My life in a bingo board.
I am also fond of “We’re not wrong, you’re wrong because you’ve got the $crazy,” which comes up a lot at work. Gaslighting FTW!
