In order of effectiveness: 1. My fetish of high heeled CBT. 2. "Touchies"-Where my wife gently runs her fingers on the back of my head where my hairline is. 3. Rolling back and forth in bed while listening to soundtracks that allow me to replay whatever scenario went wrong in a way where i...

I'm so wrapped up in my interest of tug boats that I have a stuffed tugboat from Kohl's that I keep in bed. My wife doesn't mind it. My exes always tried to tell me to grow up. I was always impulsive and never became financially responsible until 3 years ago. Even now, I'm still extremely impulsive ...

I find myself staring down the same barrel. I posted on here telling others about finding a job with minimal people and maximum "entertainment." I thought I had it but it changed into a new position. Now I'm supposed to supervise a production area and no matter how hard I try, I can barely...

Your industry of choice has a lot to do with it too. I failed every attempt at customer service/office type jobs. Getting into a warehouse or production facility is easy. Most of them start through a temp service and all you need there is clean pee, a pulse, and a lack of court dates (past, or futur...

On my mind right now? Debating on whether I should scratch build a large ride on R/C tug boat, or a ride on barge to be pulled by a large R/C tug, or to build a large ride on R/C container ship....decisions. Solar power panels on top of the containers would make that easy. Plus that can be an access...

No problem. Not sure what you do for work, but admin support of some kind at warehouses and factories usually get weekends off whether it's order entry or basic phone customer service, building the manifests for the drivers or whatever else. Non CPA accountants get awesome hours and if it's the righ...

Not sure where you're at, but here in the states it's possible to get FMLA days for stuff like that. I haven't pursued it, but I happened to find an industry that actually entertains my mind in the best of ways. I used to deal very little with people and was made supervisor. I'm seriously considerin...

Had a self pain thing going on from an early age and seemed to be completely drawn to women in classic pumps. Ended up sticking it in a house fan and it basically vibrated it out. went through about 5 fans before I figured I'd try it with my hands and voila, finally figured out how to do it the &quo...

Revell Scale model of the container ship Colombo Express (took a long time to find a scale model of such a vessel that someone else hasn't built yet). This will be the masterpiece after a few trials of converting scale models into R/C. I have the North Sea Trawler and the Ocean Exploration Vessel fr...

See that's pretty much the answer I was expecting. I'm just used to a negative reception to me being me in the form of physical harm so I just found a way to hide being that way. I guess as an adult, it's less of a rational concern. I would hope adults nowadays would be more receptive to the way I a...

Morning to who it applies, I guess. Allow me to share what I feel is the worst part about having the mirror/imitate style of coping mechanisms for social confusion as an aspie. I can start by defining exactly what caused me to develop such a "solution". The fact that I was in small town US...

I think the reason I was never told and the reason I never saw that shrink again was because my father was usually pretty dismissive about things like that. ESPECIALLY when it came to any type of mental diagnosis. He’s the old school “depression just means you’re sad, smile and walk it off” type guy...

Ever since I was 4 years old, I've done nothing but absorb my surroundings and in my head...shifted the shapes of me even as far as complete fabrication to mold myself into something. The problem was that over time, I've tried to mold myself into 583,204 somethings. 29, I'm still dealing wi...

It's evening here so good evening. This is my first post aside from the get to know you questions, and I have a lot to relate to. I grew up in towns of less than say 2,000 people. The kind of towns where there are maybe 20 last names and they never leave. I've never been from any of these places and...
