Unhappy I don't know what to do help. - January 6th 2016, 07:43 PM

Hi, so when i was about 11 or 12 i was scared to go to middle school after elementary because i heard so many rumors about bullies, so i tried home school instead because i thought it would have been much easier and funner than normal school but i was wrong and for some reason it was about 20x more boring than public school idk why, so my brain just would not pay attention even though i tried to.

I think i have aspergers cause when i was in public i couldn't help but act REALLY weird. I try to act normal in front of other people but end up looking like a freak, and i also remember from 1st grade to 5th grade i never talked to other kids, only teachers or whenever i was asked a question, so yea i might have aspergers...I don't know for sure though because i have not been diagnosed by the doctor for it.

So now i really am not getting any education and i'm scared to go to public school because 1. i have a very high chance of getting bullied and 2. The Exercising classes are horrible i either have to go in athletes or in karate so i either have to do a sport and exercise very hard (I HATE SPORTS) or do extremely awkward fighting with kids, and i really really really don't wanna do either of these.

This means i either have to go to public school and be miserable cause i will be awkward,have no friends, have no new clothes,and be ugly/fat and worst of all be like 2 or 3 grades behind because i haven't been educated OR i will just continue doing NOTHING and getting no education which means i will likely have a horrible life when i get older. So what do i do help?

I fundamentally recommend that you remember the resources at your disposal. Bullying is not something that is endorsed in our community these days and reporting these incidents to principals and other senior school officials will mean that your case is considered and most likely taken seriously. Police normally do not investigate instances of bullying unless the bullying becomes actual or grievous bodily harm or stalking. If it reaches those veins, do contact police.

Asperger's Syndrome is something that many people have increased awareness and understanding of, more so than in the past. I would not recommend attempting to conceal or fight against any tics or habits that you have (for lack of understanding, I use those terms, so apologies if I offend anyone). You cannot control them and attempting to may result in serious medical trauma. You should try and find some Asperger's and Autism-specific support services and focus groups, to find people who feel the same way you do. This connection will improve your headspace dramatically.

You don't have to be all of two or three grades behind, there are many resources at schools to assist you with your learning and sometimes there are staff specifically employed to assist disabled students. There are also Youtube resources which I personally found helpful during my attempt to learn Advanced Statistics. Salman Khan does not know whether or not you have a disability or learning difficulties and the pause button is there when you need some time.

Finally, I encourage you to flat out embrace the physical classes. Exercise is proven to dramatically improve the mood and the function of mentally ill people, particularly people who have Depression. The only way you can improve your skills in physical disciplines is to practise and in many ways, it does not matter whether you can improve. I love watching long distance running and learning about it but cannot run more than 800m! Mind you, I love pretending to, and it gives me inspiration for blog posts .
