sorry for freaking out about this but im so nervous

like im really glad the college have sorted out support workers for me and i’ll have people with me all the time to get me round

but also

im really worried having a support worker with me 24/7 will put people off me? like im worried they’ll kind of avoid me or be uncomfortable around me bleugh

i was really scared of that too when i went back to school - especially because i felt so awkward being in a chair, with useless hands, and older than a lot of people in my classes.

eventually, i got to the point where whoever was aiding me could drop me off in a parking lot close to the building i was going to and i could wheel there [unless on bad days, then i had someone push me, haha] because they happen to be close enough mostly

i’m sure my advice is probably the worst to take, but i always tried to go into it as proudly as i could, and acting like any awkward moments didn’t bother me, and directing people to assist me - even though i was dying inside like 90 percent of the time lmao

i think it also helps if you can kinda psyche yourself up. like, i always tried to think of really inspiring/empowering quotes before i went into class situations; for some reason, i held on strongly to mandela’s ”any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose”…and, somehow, it seemed to work

typically, i just started smalltalk with people, and eventually evolved into sitting by each other/talking before or after class/etc

i’m sure you’ll do really great and have a blasty :D

[if it makes you feel any better btw one day my mom was having to come pick me up and walked into class, announcing to everyone ”oh, don’t mind me, i’m just kat’s mom - i’ll be out in the hall, my lamb” and i felt like i was in 4th grade, i was so embarrassed, hahaha] 

This means more than i can say, thank you so much <3

cheesy inspirational quotes sound like a plan ;) There’s a poem I found recently that makes me feel good, might print it out and stick it in my sketchbook

acepuff said: Oh okay, I know talking to people can be really hard so really don't worry if you don't feel you can talk to people <3 But if you feel up for it, it can be good to just talk to the people you sit next to in class, just ask their name and if they've had a good holiday or something maybe? And then if you have a class before lunch (if you want to), you can ask to sit with them at lunch maybe? It's a good way to meet a group of people without any pressure to talk to any of them.

I could try? Honestly its hard to even form words sometimes, and i end up really embarrassing myself, haha. I’ll do my best though!

Honestly, from the perspective of someone who’s been abled most of their life, it might. It might stop people coming up and talking to you - but if you approach them, and you’re friendly and talkative, then I doubt it’ll affect anything. :)

I have a lot of problems with socialisation and speech because of how long i’ve spent alone and my anxiety so i’m afraid thats not gonna happen, haha. im not really a very friendly/talkative person if i dont know someone so im probably fucked

ngl i hate the term mogai as a replacement for lgbtq* or queer it sounds fuckin ridiculous and it focuses entirely on the fact that people are marginalised whereas lgbtq* is like “hey if ur not a cishet ur one of us” like straight away it’s belonging to a Good Thing or at least thats what ive always felt but marginalised orientations/gender alignments/intersex is like WE R PRINCIPALLY DEFINED BY THE FACT THAT WE ARE MARGINALISED and im not about it
