I went to a DBSA support group meeting tonight with the hopes that I could meet some cool beepers, people that know what things can be like for us. But it was horrible! Like 5 people dominated the whole meeting. And this one guy called me out about my twitching and not being able to sit still in front of everybody ( I prefaced in the introduction part of the meeting that I had bad akathisia and to please be understanding). But he wasn't. He said I needed to find some kind of outlet and the "nervous energy" would go away. I thought beepers of all people would understand. But they didn't. Now I feel like no one understands. I'm worried about my akathisia causing problems socially. I mean if beepers don't understand no one else is going to. I know I should probably try to explain it to people but to be honest I don't really know how. I just know that I get restless inside and that makes me restless on the outside. I move, I pace, i can't focus on anything. It's horrible! How am I supposed to go to normal social events if the beepers can't even understand it?
