PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

57. "RE: I am alive and well, thank you ..."
I love the debate going on but I want to clear up a few facts in an effort to dispel any rumors or misinterpretations flying around. You know me always gotta deal in the truthÖ

I dropped out of high school at the beginning of my senior year. I was so far behind from failing since freshman year that I just gave up (my disabilities were undiagnosed in HS). They just thought I was lazy and unruly. After sitting home for a month I was invited to check out the night school. I worked my butt off and graduated in the top 3% of the class with honors. The small classes and specialized environment allowed me to actualize my potential and that principle is what I base my company mission on. People with ADHD historically are very successful in business. I have never said I was not smart, that is the fallacy society puts on people with brain disorders or disabilities. Many very successful business leaders have a disability. Brokerage innovator Charles Schwab, JetBlue Airways Corp. founder David Neeleman, Kinko's founder Paul Orfalea and John Chambers, chief of Cisco Systems Inc. just to name a few.

I am not a teacher. My business specializes in mentoring adults with developmental disabilities. The best way to describe why I am so successful; because we all teach what we need to learn!

Yes, I am a contradiction, but arenít we all. In one of Rhondaís books she describes it best. We all live in a state of FEAR or FREEDOM. When I am in fear and feeling defensive I can become a bully, biotch, impatient and judgmental. When I am in freedom, I am loving, compassionate, patient and caring, actualizing my authentic self. I live in fear most of the time for many reasons. I think a lot of us do, there in lies the contradiction. I donít feel safe and have conditioned myself to feel as if I have to defend myself. It is my struggle and cross to bear. That by no means justifies my behavior but hopefully sheds some light on it. Yes, you are correct! I can be a biotch, and a bully, thatís why I went into the house!!! I donít have the wisdom to know the difference that is what I was hoping to learn. I sat in a box for 3 days over 3 hours at a time in 100 degree weather for Christ sake. I beat myself up far worse than any of you ever could, and have endured verbal beatings my whole life so I am immune to it on an emotional level, maybe that is the true issue.

I have consistently been told from a very early age that I am wrong, bad, and inappropriate and need to change in order for others to love me. I have never been accepted just because I breathe (other than from Rick). I would agree I go about discussing my disabilities in the wrong way, AGAIN, thatís why I went on the show. It is obvious I donít do an adequate job at explaining myself! Let me try again; I am not a biotch because I have disabilities. I am a biotch and can become very defensive because of the rejection I have experienced my whole life because I have disabilities and am different. The constant abuse and ridicule has caused Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. If a dog is constantly kicked eventually it will fight back no matter how loving. I went on the show to learn how to stop fighting back, unfortunately, I am still learning.

I responded to Tonya to agree with her and to let her know that I hear her. You can chew up my reply and spit it out any way you want to but from what I have learned when we are pointing a finger at someone there are always 3 pointing right back at you! I am willing to acknowledge and expose my faults and weaknesses, are you? If that is being a Rhonda wanna be than I guess I am guilty but I did not need to go on Starting Over to learn that lesson.

I am happy to debate my behavior all day long or not, I just wanted to clear up some facts. Wow, you donít hear from me all year and now you canít get rid of me. Iíll leave you alone now.

Whatís up Kimmy B, us triggers gotta stick together! I love you too, thanks for the shout out and support.

Keepin It Real,

TJ
