Dear Pinky Moo,
No, actually what you've found isn't a group of people who understand your "weird ramblings". What you've found is a group of people who don't think what you're saying is either "weird" or "rambling". It sounds healthy and normal to ME. Who wouldn't feel bad after what you've been through?
Are your fillings a silver metal color? If so they are probably "amalgam", containing mercury. If so, please get them taken out.
I laughed out loud at the following quote from your posting:
"They want me to have good organisational skills, be good at data handling and use databases and spreadsheets (if there is one thing I can't understand more than numbers it's numbers in boxes!)."
When I took Basic Computer Literacy last year, I had to ask for extended time to finish the course because of Excel. Excel is 'numbers in boxes', and as you say, it's even worse than numbers by themselves. Maybe if the system is already in place I could plug in the numbers, but setting up a new page with formulas kept me sitting in the computer lab, getting help from the techs for many days and many hours.
I find that two postings I did this morning are not on the web. If I find them saved on my computer, I'll send them later.
