Read the description. by DesmondeKapi Read the description. by DesmondeKapi
I don't mean people who are just introverted/shy/quiet whatever, well it's your personality, you just can't snap out of a personality but..

I mean people who have social anxiety, selective mutism, sometimes other anxiety disorders or other mental disorders out there.. they are misunderstood.

I'm not saying all people who are quiet/introverted/shy have something wrong with them.

I want to post this on Facebook but I don't think most of the people out there can take anything seriously or take a good "uninteresting" explanation on an anxiety disorder or the stupidest thing that I know some people would do is.. "Why are you so quiet then?"

JESUS CHRIST THE BRIEF EXPLANATION IS UP THERE.

Being silent can hurt, sometimes.

Don't worry I'm getting help for it .-.

Omg! I agree with this SO much! I have SM and my friends tell me to talk more and just be crazy in front of people I don't know. I tell them something like what you said "I can't just snap out of it." They still don't seem to understand. Also I'm glad to hear you're getting help for it! =)

Hello, I'm inactive, sorry for the late reply.
I suggest if people tell you that make a page like I do:
happyabstinence.tumblr.com/din…

or send them my page and tell them to read the anxiety part if you're too lazy.

I'm sorry. I know how April must be hard for you.
I lately read something about how Autism Speaks isn't a good organization because it isn't regarding people with Autism as just people, but more like puzzles or walking mental illnesses. That's horrible. I'm glad that I didn't donate to that organization that one time I got the chance to.

I know that this may not be about that, but I still get where you are coming from. I'm personally not sure if I'm an introvert. I suppose I am, but I feel like I'm becoming less of one ever since I've been hospitalized. Weird right?
I supposed that last year I had really bad social anxiety(although I'm not sure if that was exactly that because well... I wasn't diagnosed with it). I'm not so much like that anymore, I just avoid people. Sometimes I do get anxiety over social confrontations but not as much as I used to. I remembered how annoyed and angry I got whenever people said that I was, "overreacting" "stupid" "awkward" "too quiet".
I hope that people can become more understanding over everyone who just prefers to not socialize or who is scared to. Whether it be that they are just shy or an introvert, or that they have a mental illness that prevents them from doing it.

Ah, thanks :hug:

I don't really know much about AutismSpeaks..because I usually research stuff on autism on non-charity/organisation sites..

but since you mentioned it(Thanks btw), I sorta googled it and it does sound bad they, use "hopeless" and "disaster" to describe Autism and they insult the autistic community..

It's not just the autism that makes me quiet, selective mutism is the bigger part.

Well, I've been told I have selective mutism from some school..

and I hope you get ze better :P

no problem
And yeah they kind of do that.
Oh and I know, I don't know how to explain it but I get what you mean. What exactly is selective mutism though? I don't get it 100%.
I'm okay, don't worry.

Selective mutism is like when a person can't speak, like they can't speak AT ALL- mute.. or they can barely have the courage speak because of anxiety that is sort of "paralyzing"..in specific situations or to specific people.
