The driving force behind ALL my input here?
No, definitely not.
The driving force behind about 10% or less of my posting?
But if you knew anything about my background, and how my education was unfairly stalled when I was a kid, you'd understand why this is such a big deal for me.
You'd also understand why I am so frustrated by the effect my OCD and Anxiety Disorder has on my life prospects.
I discovered recently that I correctly answered 100% of all the questions I responded to in a comprehension test, but I was deemed not to have met the required 75% pass rate since I didn't get around to answering all the questions. My OCD and Anxiety Disorder causes me to check and recheck my responses to these answers and thus curtails my ability to complete such tests in an allotted time.
This is ridiculous for a number of reasons: firstly, before my OCD and Anxiety Disorder manifested, I was getting a 100% pass rate in comprehension tests (so it's only as a consequence of my disability/illness that I have since struggled); secondly, if I was dyslexic I'd be granted extra time to complete such tests (so why is my disability/illness treated differently even though its impact is equally, if not more, detrimental?); and thirdly, in the real world, most decisions are not subject to a timer. It's a ridiculous and arbitrary scenario that doesn't apply to the real world, where, if anything, diligence and thorough checking is preferable to haste.
We ALL experience angst in today's uncertain world. What makes your experience so unique? There are many more inspirational stories of people overcoming hardships, handicaps on a daily basis that eclipse your constant whining.
