do people treat you like you are stupid? they do me and it really bothers me, i know i am not thick but i just wish that people didn't treat me like a low watt bulb! I shouldn't let it bother me but it does! Do people treat you like this? does it bug you or can you just let it go? how do i deal with such people?

You are totally right. There is not much anyone can do to stop these kind of things from happening. People may think it doesn't bother people but it really does and there is nothing you can do about it so your anger builds up. Something as simple as calling someone stupid can cause all kinds of trouble. My advice to you is pay no attention to people like that, even though I know it is not that simple.

I am trying to ignore them, its getting a little easier, but I do think "Why should thye get away with treating me like that?"

I hate it, absolutely hate it, people think I am a walkover, people think I am easily controlled and that I am gullible, naive and easily lead, therefore I am stupid and they look at you as though you are a town fool or a total imbicile, my ex used to treat me like that, and would treat me like a child when I tried to offer my opinion when we were talking with friends. It was embarrassing and I hated it. Part of the reason why I am taking up psychology is too help me understand why people treat me like this, I am obviously giving off signals or NVC (non-verbal communication)

it's humiliating isn't it? but if you call them on it they just say you are being over sensitive.

That is another of my weaknesses, I am very sensitive that's the trouble and I am easily hurt by other people's remarks, I have to toughen up and develop broad shoulders as it were, but that's not easy for me to do, I've been this way for 37 years and to change now would be difficult.
