    Thumbs down Neighbours spying on me again!

    I live in special housing on my own. It's made up of sheltered and amenity bungalows that are identical and it's very close knit in a sweet quiet little street with a cul-de-sac. Previously I was called "the lassie in the wheelchair who doesn't have a carer" I know several people's noses were put out of joint because they are far more physically able than me and most have carers. Then I came along. I clearly annoyed them!
    Most of the residents are elderly and the other "disabled" person is quite able. So I'm the only younger person and by miles the most disabled.
    It's a pity that I get stares all the time. My neighbour across the road always conveniently had her coffee standing at her window every single time I went to get into my car. It got so bad that on occasion she even took her coffee outside just to gawp at me and my visitors. I eventually stopped waving and looking so she stopped staring. Now she hardly looks. That has taken years.

    Now I have new neighbours down the road. One lady stood at the end of her driveway and watched me sweep the floor of my van. She even summoned her next door neighbour to have a look! Luckily I have privacy glass so they couldn't see.
    I heard "No I can't see anything" as they both looked at me.

    I am that fascinating? Or do they really have nothing better to do? I've never been reported but there is always a first time.

    Anyone live like this? Any ideas on how to deal with this? I just need a new approach. Humour always welcome.

    Wave at them, say hi, would you like to come for a coffee? Wave a bottle of wine around instead?

    Oh I'm not like that at all with my neighbours. I hardly speak to them. I find striking a relationship really tricky as im ASD so socialising is a nightmare. They probably think I'm quite rude and standoffish but that's just the way I am.

    Mike maybe you are right. I think I worry too much..
    I basically get really anxious just going out of my house as I hate being stared at by my neighbours.
    I feel totally self conscious.

    They need to get a life, being disabled is not a crime. Do you really take any notice of malicious and spiteful people, do not be intimidated by them, feel sorry for them their lives must be so empty that they have to pick on disabled lady, shame on them.

    Thanks yes that is an excellent way to deal with it. I do feel like I'm being picked on because I'm different. It's not ok to treat people this way. I go out a lot and know I'm being watched. I have a life and they don't.
