Carlos is a pretty good reader, but seems to have missed the part where they were gaslighting me into meltowns. Well it sounds like your being bullied including them blowing off steam at your expense with their games to wind you up. If you worked for a big organisation I would say, check your HR po...

This happened to me over the last two weeks, with most of the action being near the end, so this will serve as a vague introductory post. On thursday the 9th of sept, I had a meltdown at work, when the person signing my time card was making it obvious they didn't trust me, or even see me as a human...

The DSM was always a stopgap for diagnosis for brain disorders science cannot explain.

This is intended as a safe space for folks to vent their rage at China and its Communist Party. BTW if you believe there should be an apostrophe in the title, you haven't done your research!

My Autism just means loss of opportunities that were stolen by NTs eagerly exploiting the chance to jump in to take my place. Heavy anxiety & non-stop OCD, just a lifelong horrible experience. I don’t see my diagnosis as an explanation of all this, simply because Autism not a real diagnosis of w...
