supply and demand, having a good agent, being in the right place at the right time, so many factors go into having a career in entertainment. Having the right connections doesn't help if there are only a few slots for older people (roles in a movie, play, program, etc) . Age matters if you are no lo...

for me it was like a miracle. I was on meds for anxiety for many years and it really did help. If the first you try doesn't work, don't be afraid to try again or try different kinds of meds in combination, keep your doctor informed of problems or side effects you might find difficult. If one kind of...

you might do the same thing with online self testing. There are many self tests available on line which may help define your diagnosis and confirm it. It is not unusual for us to question recent diagnosis, diagnosis changes our perspective on absolutely everything we thought we knew or understood up...

I learned how to spot being manipulated, intimidated, "guilted" and used/ abused with a counselor who worked with me through the book "when I say NO I feel guilty" by Manuel J smith. It is out of print now but you can find it anywhere used books are sold online or in used book st...

I think one of the problems with such high statistics for autistic folks as a group is that for years we were taught compliance, masking, and how to please others. Suicide might sometimes seem to be the only choice we have to escape the emotional pain and turmoil inside us. Once our appeasement (or ...

welcome! diagnosed with autism at age 68 and it was a huge relief. I finally had the answers to lifelong "why" questions of the past. Diagnosis gives us a whole new perspective on just about everything.

it may be true for some and not others. autism is uneven development of neurology and it will be different in every individual. Some may be affected in certain ways and not in others, all across our sensory processing abilities and experiences. The attempts to put all autistic individuals into one b...

"teaching me how NOT to be autistic" doesn't work. No matter how many times people tell me I fail at something, I don't automatically improve "now I know". I am fully aware of my failings in so many ways, but I can not necessarily improve my performance now that I know. I found o...

I tried 3 therapists each 3 or 4 times when I was seeking therapy. Each time I was asked "how does that make you feel" or "how did that make you feel" I spent the entire time weeping and saying "I don't know". I cried on the way to therapy and on the way home. No ideas ...

people who are constantly depressed or otherwise needy can be hard to help when we struggle with our own needs and problems. Please encourage your friend to call helplines, get therapy, ask doctor for meds adjustments... much can be done to help, but sometimes friends don't have the emotional resour...
