Friends

I think I am a friendly person. Often people like me have trouble making friends. With me it can be hard or easy. Most of my life as a kid, I was around people older than me, like my family and medical professionals. This resulted in me being more drawn to adults. I am still friends on Facebook with my old nurses, who became like a second family.

I had some good friends in primary school that I still talk to. I went to a school for mixed disabilities. In high school I would try to make friends with people who weren’t disabled, but often people wouldn’t want to talk. My poor hearing didn’t help. Nowadays my friends are a mixture of people with disabilities and people without.

I find it hard to catch up with people, because most live far away and lead busy lives. I find Facebook great for keeping in contact. I have friends all over the world. I play games on Facebook and have made friends through there and through my CHARGE groups.

I love all my friends and it is good having great people. My OCD can sometimes push people away and this upsets me, but the good ones always stay.

  1. I am enjoying your blog posts, Ellen. You are indeed a friendly person and I have always enjoyed you just being you. You’re funny and bring happiness wherever you show up. I’m glad we’re still friends even if we don’t play the same games ❤
