I had a very stressful day today. I have always, thanks to this site, for the last 8 years since my son's diagnosis, advocated for the rights of autistics. I have made many enemies from all the autism parent's groups for speaking up for autistics, yet I always knew in my heart it was the right thing...

I think it should be advocacy, but not awareness or acceptance. I don't like awareness because honestly, unless people live under a rock, they have heard of autism. I don't like acceptance either because nobody else is made to seek acceptance from others. To advocate and teach our kids that they nee...

My son is autistic, I believe I am as well. I used to think it came from my mother's side...her brother without a doubt is autistic and never diagnosed. He's extremely intelligent as well but was always made to feel bad because of his poor social skills, although he is an extremely nice and caring p...

slight vent :-( For the last few years I have spent numerous days/hours looking for friends for my son. We homeschool, which of course makes things a bit more difficult, yet the friends he's had who are not homeschooled, don't really have friends at school anyway. I have put ads online to meet paren...

This is a tough situation for relationships or friendships for not just your son but you and other members of the family as well. I don't advise remaining online contact only if it is for a friendship. Long-distance relationship especially international is too difficult to sustain in the long run, ...

So I have worked really hard to find my son friends and in that time, he met a girl he liked. It's been about 1 1/2 years since they met and they truly are incredibly nice to each other. They of course claim to be in love, which I understand they are still very young, yet I also have many friends wh...

Me. For too many years I tried and was just abused and used by most people. Sick of people. I couldn't see their motives before, I was incredibly naive (many real friends told me this) that I see how they play their game, I can't stand most people. I have just maybe 2-3 friends whom I consider...

Tired, no, sick and tired of Facebook. It is indeed an NT look at me, look at what I have type of place. Every once in a while someone will complain about politicians and their lies, yet when you mention some other group who is doing the same, they don't like it if they approve of the group. You kno...

Once again, my husband didn't have time to discuss our issues...he has too many other things on his mind. PS I live where I have no friends and I spend 5-7 days alone at home with our son, without anyone to talk to...but he has more important things on his mind. PS no worries, when I leave, he'll re...

I'm always amused than when it is whites or Europeans who go to a country, it is considered a take over and stealing the land of the people who lived there, but when it's another culture doing the same, well, it's considered immigration lol

I am a minority. I've heard hateful remarks from some who don't understand my culture and it used to drive me nuts for many years. As I grew, I noticed something. I noticed that while the hateful remarks were sometimes a bit related just to being different, some of those remarks were indeed true. Th...

Here I am still not asleep, yes, on the computer, however, the one thing I found that helps me fall asleep quick is to read a good, relaxing book. Not a non-fiction book, but a novel. Yes, I hated novels before, but someone suggested one once, a brainless type of novel lol and it has helped me ever ...

I thought about posting this in the media representation, but not sure it belonged there. Then I thought about the movie section, but not sure it belonged there either. I am sure most of you have heard of this documentary on Netflix. While we may all have different views on wether someone is guilty ...

Yup, it gets on my nerves. I too think people who don't take responsibility for the things they do are a#$%les and not to be trusted at all.

I do. I hate her with a passion. Just today I woke up stressed because I had a flashback of when my son was born and the hell that witch put me through. I hardly see her anymore on purpose. I will see her if my husband begs, but he knows that he has to stop and buy me a couple of drinks BEFORE I get...
