What should I do, I had a stroke and my neighbors think I am disabled mentally?

Question by khole12: What should I do, I had a stroke and my neighbors think I am disabled mentally?
I have quite a high iq and they are treating me like I’m retarded. Four years after my stroke I had an iq test that cost quite a lot of money since the education agency gave it. 140 iq.

No idea what you’re asking here. Okay, you have a high IQ. What’s that got to do with neighbors? As far as I know, my neighbors don’t know my IQ. Matter of fact, the only person who does know my IQ is hubby. Even my family doesn’t know. So, again, what does IQ have to do with neighbors? And, frankly, what does it matter what neighbors think of us?

Although, why did you pay to get an IQ test? Anytime I took one, it was free. lol

    You could say “Stroke is a physical occurrence. My IQ wasn’t affected.” Apparently theirs have always been low.

    I am afraid that’s how it goes. Some people really are ignorant about disabilities. What people think is not worth worrying about. Go on with life regardless of what your neighbours think.

    from my point of view if your neighbors had not been there for you when you had your stroke then you can assume they were just acquaintances, and now you need to make new friends, and some friends in your community who you “can” depend on. Maybe start with your church. Try taking a course. Play some games where first you play alone and then play the game with others. Thank goodness for the internet where strokes don’t count.
