Oftentimes, I find that I get overstimulation at my job during the day. Especially when I'm supervising the cafeteria for 2+ hours a day with 120+ noisy kids. It's weird though because overstimulation doesn't give me a headache like I've heard it does most people on the spectrum. In fact, I very sel...

My story is that I first began attempting suicide by drinking household chemicals mixed with juice. It started as just one cleaning solution sprayed into the juice and then became a mixture of 6 different chemicals including isopropyl alcohol in my juice to drink. I drank one glass per day for about...

What's the closest you've ever been to committing suicide? What's your story if you're willing to share and what did you do about it?

That sounds frustrating, they didn't even play uptown girl? I mean granted the main reason I like that song is cause it was featured on The Boys, which is a show I like and highly recommend but it does have gore/violence that can be a bit simular to Quentin Tarantino movies so wouldn't recommend it...

Thanks for the explanation. That kind of work doesn't really interest me. I was looking for a website called Out school where I could possibly tutor small children in reading and math, but there are definitely some barriers. First off, how would I attract customers to me personally, vs. other tutors...

Heidi Game Also in 2012 NBC cut away well before the ending of the Closing Ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics . Who is going to rewatch the entire concert again just to catch the last song? Hopefully the last song will be put on youtube but it won’t be the same. It will be one song that will not be th...

I heard about this and it's terrible! Why advertise a concert and then show bits and pieces of it? That just seems wrong. Yes! Everyone keeps saying this was as bad as the 'Heidi" incident on TV. Of course, I'm not old enough to have lived through that, but based on what people told me about i...

Is anyone else livid at what CBS did to Billy Joel's 100th performance at Madison Square Garden? It's all that's been talked about on the radio since Monday morning following the disastrous performance where they cut off the song "Piano Man" in order to broadcast the local news. Well, afte...

I think you could possibly be a energy land manager online since a lot of the mineral title records from the courthouses in oil and gas producing areas are online now.Just a thought.You could certainly make more than 10 bucks an hour doing it.I know its not tutoring and its not education related bu...

One of my friends is an undiagnosed autistic lady. She refuses to admit she may be and says "that's very asinine to assume that". Internalized ableism I guess. But anyway, she worked third shift for decades and is now basically a vampire. She says she always functioned better at night tha...

Our bodies make stress hormones that prepare us to run, hide, or fight when we're in danger. Those hormones make physical reactions in our bodies. Our heart will pump faster to give energy to our vital organs. Blood pressure goes up. Breathing rate goes up to give us more oxygen. It might make us t...

I look forward to night time my whole life. I hate daytime and I live in pyjamas. I got rid of nearly all my real clothes. I could never do that, as much as I love my soft PJ's. I also wear nice thick socks to bed as well so that me feet don't ever get cold. I won't do that when it gets hot obvious...

I'm not saying that it's bad to be cozy at night or have quiet time for self care. I'm saying that I don't think it's healthy to be thinking about bedtime the majority of the day. I don't like to stay in bed all day because then I don't feel productive and TV makes me bored after a while. However, o...
