Me, me! I'm not sure of the exact age, but I was already in school, yet younger than 10. Probably 9. I think that one of the reasons I got mine so early was the fact that I kept going to the doctor's all the time anyway due to a physical problem, so my behavior during those various visits (and durin...

Hmm well, I suppose easiest would be a one on one talk to someone about something that interests us both and that both of us know a decent amount of. Official stuff like going to a doctor is also very easy if it's a routine like thing and I know what I'm supposed to say and do. Hardest, well, lots o...

I think that when the restrictions and the lock down started, I might have been more stressed than an average person since my routines got messed up, but as time went by, I got used to things pretty easily. I got to keep my job, just had to do a different thing from home during the lock down. With a...

-5...? Mentally mostly okay, got some stress, but my physical condition is making me grumpy. I got the second shot of the vaccine yesterday, which led to my arm aching all night, which led to only a few hours of sleep, which in my case leads to headache, dizziness and this time, slight feeling of na...

Not really, but they aren't unusually aggressive at me or anything, either.

Sorry for your losses, Fnord. Personally, the ones I feel the most sorry for are the ones who really can't take the vaccine due to real health reasons. I'm sure many of them would if they could, but they can't, so their hope is in being extra careful and in other people taking the vaccine so that so...

You know, the covid ones. I understand that they're bad for economy, but so is hospitals being full, the staff being overworked and lots of people at home or in quarantine due to infections and exposure, and unable to work because of it. At the very least, they should've cancelled all the festivals ...

Same. I'd heard about lots of stereotypes about aspies before I joined, but this was a new one.

Went to a toystore to pass time while waiting for the bus. There I saw barbie dolls, both men and women, that were in wheelchairs. First time I saw such dolls; I don't think there were any of them around when I was a kid.

The point is that she put a lot of psychological pressure on me to say yes, as she was having phone calls with me on a daily basis, few hours a day, until I finally said yes. You didn't need to answer, or you could've cut the talk short. And there is a good chance I will, once the semester starts. ...

-4...? Physically I'm fine, though tired because of the hot weather. But I just verbally threw my dad out of my apartment. He just came here unannounced, didn't even call from the parking lot this time, and expected to get to stay until 19:30 when he has a time for vaccination. On some other day it ...

You're a legal adult, so there was no way she was able to force you to stay with her. If you really didn't want to, you could've just said no. Or you could leave her place now. She's doing you a HUGE favor by letting you live at her place for free, so the least you can do is to follow her rules, eve...

My mom says that all parents, especially mothers since mothers are usually the ones taking care of the children more than fathers, will always see their children as just that, their children, even if they are adults, so there is an unconscious need for advising their children. Sometimes it's a good ...

Same, though clearly for a different reason. I haven't liked my name or saying it since I was a kid, but I was an adult by the time I realized what might have caused it. You see, when I was small, my sister and half sister picked on me by singing this song that was about a woman who was my namesake....
