I have never been able to cross my legs properly (like kids do when sitting on 'the mat'. When I was younger and in school I was constantly berated and nagged to cross them, but I found it quite painful and could never fully have them crossed.
I also hold my pen weirdly and was also given grief by teachers about this, I had all sorts of special grips that made my once neat handwriting illegible. I now hate having to write or sign anything in front of people as 9/10 times they will comment on my 'bizarre grip'.
Lastly, instead of normal scarring, I have a tendency to keloid scar (Google it), I have several of these on my body and they are very painful and disfiguring, I'm paranoid about having any cuts to my face, as I would look horrific with a face covered in keloids.
I can't cross my legs either; have never been able to
I've never been afraid of the dark, or monsters, or robbers or anything. When I was a kid I could watch very intense scary movies then sleep easily. As an adult I watched the Blair witch project then slept in my downstairs bedroom with the windows wide open because it was hot.
I used to love watching horror movies to see if they would scare me. Apart from clowns I'm genuinely not afraid of anything.
But I was the same growing up in the 80's, we all watched horror movies as kids, all of the Nightmare On Elm Street movies, the Child's Play movies... Carrie, Halloween... it was just the way it was. My DS is 13 and would never sleep again if I allowed him to watch the movies I grew up on!
