I work in a job that doesn't suit me because it's all I can find at this point, and I stink at it mostly because my aspieness gets totally in the way. This job requires rapid multitasking, never being able to focus, working with crap tools that don't work most of the time, and being able to ignore b...

If you asked someone to hangout the next day and they said yes, then when the day comes they don’t text you all day... should you text them or do they not want to hangout anymore? They may not want to hang out anymore, but they should tell you that beforehand. And nothing wrong with you texting the...

It's just sadly funny to think how it's more probable my precious birds will be in Heaven than most of my blood relatives, my ex-wife who probably abused children and is at least a pathological liar, and so many churchians which worship money and the glorious state. I'm sure this will go over like ...

the water here tastes like swill, even ice-cold, so i usually put in lemon and stevia to disguise the off-putting taste. mountain stream water never needs anything else. I'm curious if you've tried one of those "Brita" filters. I had one that was just a pitcher with a filter in it, and it...

I'm so sorry to hear that! I had times in my life like that, as well. There could be lots of different things that help. Most go the pharmaceutical route, but you could also check more "natural" things. Like I use Lemon Balm tea when I can't sleep. I also gave up caffeine because I figured...

The place I've most enjoyed living was a city of about 100,000 people. It was big enough to have a few restaurants, jobs, etc., but wasn't so big you had the big city nightmare traffic and so on. Funny though is that I didn't think I liked it when I lived there (this was about 20 years ago, and I've...

Before I was married I would make a huge casserole, and then just eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and snacks) until it was gone. Then I would make another one and do the same thing. This meant I was eating the same thing usually for 3 to 4 days in a row. When I got married, that was put to ...

What everyone else has said. Learning to keep my lips closed (most of the time) has saved me from a lot of pain and heartache in the last several years. Took me decades to figure it out finally. And I don't always manage to block that impulse to speak before it's too late. But it makes a world of di...

I think most people - and NTs as well, and perhaps even more - only want to hang around with people they deem like themselves in whatever way. They might like you/us in some particular way, for some particular thing, but still never make or allow you to be part of their "tribe" because you...

jack lalanne was a freak of nature. Lol for whatever reason that made me laugh out loud. Thanks @auntblabby :D When I was a small kid Jack LaLanne used to be on the TV and our babysitter would have him on every morning (while she was in the other room). We kids would do the exercises with him, to t...

There's so much emphasis in workplaces on being a "team player", and until recently I've hovered between firmly believing I am a great team player, and being greatly bewildered because I'm treated as if I'm not. My brain is wired to make things work, and to relentlessly do everything neede...

If the powers that be continue to rework the ecomony (as they have since the 1970s) so there are fewer and fewer jobs of the kind that used to gainfully employ almost all the human population at a level they could do basic things like have a home and food and so on from their own paycheck, then they...

If you can, maybe go for it. Sometimes one thing leads to another.

Good luck!

Part of me wishes I had been diagnosed a lot younger. Not spending decades being isolated and in trouble for missing social things and so on, and thinking and being told the only reason why was because I was a "weirdo". It would have been nice, I think, to understand why I was different, a...
