A Social Retard

I have decided that I may be a social retard. I am not sure when this happened as it has always been easy for me to make friends and talk to people. Lately, though, I have noticed that I am less comfortable talking to people than I used to be. It has gotten to the point of practically ignoring people I know.


Today I took the two youngest kids to a local indoor play place. While there, I saw two different people I knew. One was the wife of my oldest son's boy scout leader and the other was a woman I know from the kid's school. Both of them I waved to and that's it. Nothing else. I practically ignored them after that. What the heck?! When did I become such a retard??

I think it might be due to the stress I have been under. I just don't FEEL like interacting with people or pretending life is great when it doesn't feel that way. I just don't have the energy. So, maybe I'm not a social retard. Maybe, I just can't handle much else right now, including people.


  1. Welcome to my life!! Hope things get less stressful for both of us. Love you! Miss you!

  2. You're not a social retard. You're just busy. I talk to so many people when I am working that during my "off" time, I don't want to talk to anyone at all.

  3. I'm sure you didn't mean to be offensive and hurt anyone with your language but as the mom of a child with special needs I'm pretty shocked you used the word retard. Yes, you have the right to, but you're a mom and your language influences your children. My daughter may have a lower IQ than your kids, but she's not a retard. She's full of promise and when you use that word you take that away from her.
