Finding A Job.
Fragile X Research.
I took part in Fragile x research in Edinburgh in June for a MRI scan but I didn't have it done because I panicked and felt anxious and claustrophobic. It really upset me and I felt so silly for going all that way with my mum. It bothered me afterwards because I wanted to have it done but I just couldn't. I took part in other research but still felt like I was a let down.
How I Feel Day To Day.
Sometimes I'm quiet and don't say a lot if someone or something bothers me, sometimes it's stupid but I can't help it. I also find it hard to explain what Fragile X is so I try and avoid that but I do try and tell people. I sometimes don't always look at people in the eye but I do occasionally, though I think I'm getting better at it now. I really find it hard to ask for help with things because I feel silly even asking something simple I don't know why I find it hard but I get worried and scared. When the bus doesn't show up it throws me off because then I don't know what to do and I panic I'm going to be late for work etc. I don't like lifts much I try and avoid them at all costs because I hate small spaces I panic and feel anxious. I don't even like using public toilets.
I find it hard meeting people and striking up conversation because I'm shy and quiet and I find it hard to start talking. I don't like being around drunk people and I'm not keen on alcohol either I feel uncomfortable around drunks.
