PDD-NOS, Social Anxiety and Others
Discussion place for other conditions related to the Autism spectrum such as: PDD-NOS, Social Anxiety/Phobia and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder.
Yesterday, I went to Trader Joe's. It was a Saturday. I should've thought about that more closely. I walked in and regretted it immediately. I hate grocery stores. The lights, sounds, people, and overwhelming choices don't go over well with me. Add 3 kids, and it's a disaster. This time, I went alone, so I thought I could do it.
I'm pushing my cart and this woman is coming in another direction from the left. We both stop. I wait for her to go (I ALWAYS let people go. I don't like to be in people's way). She didn't. So I politely said, "excuse me" and quickly went around her so she could go on her way. I then hear the bitterest and harshest voice say, 'do you drive like that too?' I stopped, looked back in shock, and she didn't look back. I immediately start shaking and I felt the hot tears spill. I hadn't cried in a grocery store in a few years. It's embarrassing. I attempted to approach her a few times, but I was shaking...
