I realized that I related to the world differently then my peers when I was quite young. This isn’t something to cause others to feel sorry for me about, it stems from the fact that my general life experiences are going to differ from my peers. My childhood was filled with appointments and hospitalizations. Appointments for therapy and hospitalizations because of the various bouts of pneumonia that I had as a kid.
My life experiences shape how I relate to the world. I am most comfortable with adults and now people slightly older or those who aren’t absorbed in the appearance of things. It was an uncool thing to hang out with me because of the chair and well the many hospital stays made my peers of childhood somewhat fearful of me, or at least that’s my perception.
