By My Daughter Fails at Life - 26/09/2015 01:17 - United States - San Francisco

Today, I asked my shut in of a daughter why she was sniffing black pepper. She said she was practicing to make her sneezes sound like coughs, thereby decreasing the likelihood of someone talking to her. FML

She might have social anxiety. Talk to her more, its a great start to help ease it.

OP, maybe you should look into helping her break out of her shell. Her level of introvertedness sounds kind of extreme.

why should OPs daughter be forced to interact heavily with society? society is brutal and horrificly selfish and asleep to their own slavery. I applaud OPs naughty for not wanting to be apart that

#25, what?

25, because whether or not we like it we are part of society. You cannot successfully exist as an agoraphobe in today's time, and she, as well as everyone, needs to learn a modicum of social skills to get them through life.

Not just in today's time, but quite literally in all of human history - humans are a social species. If you have a problem with interacting with other people, that is not just a lifestyle choice. It's a disorder that will limit you tremendously in your every day life if it goes untreated.

Therapy probably also wouldn't hurt...if you could convince her to talk to the therapist.

#25, do you have a problem you want to address?

in all honestly, this is the best time in human history to be a shut in. you can take online classes for a job that you work from home, online bill pay, even have take-out or even groceries delivered...if you do things just right you almost never have to leave your house

well sniffing pepper would make me not want to talk to someone

well be glad it's just black pepper she's sniffing.

This deserves way more likes

Yes, rather than posting it online where she might how much her doesn't care about. Nothing like worldwide public shaming to help with her social awkwardness. Shame on you op.

What 57 you missed some words or something.

Um, this post is completely anonymous so how is this world wide shaming? Much of the world doesn't even know about this site.

I don't know, it's a pretty specific scenario. If she ran across this post somehow, she'd probably have a pretty good idea who it's about. And were she to see it, she'd likely feel very ashamed and embarrassed. Therefore worldwide shaming is a pretty good description of what this is. Which would just add on to her social anxiety. Tl;dr: most teens don't snort pepper.

Well if sniffing black pepper is bad to her, just remember that she would less likely try to smoke crack.

So that's what I have to do to avoid social interaction. Intresting.....lol

just avoid eye contact, that is how i do it!

Avoiding eye contact + having earbuds in at all times, even if they're not connected to anything. I don't think I've had to interact with a stranger outside of my work in three years!

Social anxiety much?

Sounds like major social anxiety. She seems really nice though.
