nessa, you have very good advice and it's how I should approach the problem. I should be able to control my personality but now I'm so uncomfortable that it will take a lot of practice and self-awareness.

I think the doctor is probably the gate keeper to let me into a sleep study. I'll find out. Right now I feel physically horrible because during the wee hours of the morning, it felt like air wasn't making it very far into my body, even though I was breathing okay. I'm sighing frequently right now, t...

I rarely go to the doctor. Last time I was there for a question about not having enough oxygen during sleep, he asked me if I'd like to see a shrink. I'm not delusional, just have a quirky temperament but what good does it do to tell a doctor, I'm not crazy? It's further proof that you ARE crazy! Si...

I'm just shocked that anybody is taking a Playboy Playmate seriously at all. That was very sexist, arrogant and assumptive. What does her past have to do with anything? Is that how we judge people? Maybe more people would listen to her if she were representative of some minority and a Harvard grad?...

Does this remind anyone else of X-Men? And particularly the third movie? :(

Maybe someone should show those movies to the Autism speaks people.


Wow, you're right.

Anyone who believes Ann Coulter isn't a liar, just do a search on "Ann Coulter" and lies. I'm not going to paste her lies here because that kind of debate isn't worth the trouble. She's a liar and most people know it. As for Jenny and her McCarthism, she's a liar, too, stating autism can be cured. ...

OK, this may be a stupid question...

Anti-Vaccines / Vaccines cause it ... Vaccines are fine / or at least don't cause it ... Split do...

I saw a comment somewhere from a parent who was resentful that the presence of high functioning autistics and Aspies were making people think that this was the whole face of autism and they were making the profoundly autistic people invisible. Well, blame Autism Speaks for that! They state that one ...

So did they remove it from youtube at least? That video seemed more focused on the parents than the kids themselves.


Nope. It's going to be on Youtube forever, I think.

How about if we become reporters and catch NTs in the act of their inner autist sneaking out? I have fun, fun stim toys all over my house. When NT's come over, it doesn't take long for them to grab a toy and start doing repetitive things like enjoying the textures or manipulating the toys over and o...

It's hard for some of us socially awkward people to get out among the masses and speak out for our cause but I was happily surprised at the number of Portlanders who came up to us in support and said they were tired of the mania about autism and the over-the-top claims. Autism Speaks' nasty, exagger...

Autism Speaks had a walk for money in Portland yesterday and the news covered the people protesting Autism Speaks. Yay!
