It's very interesting to watch. As he gets more desperate his ranting gets wilder and crazier. What he says is further and further from reality. The faithful toady along behind him regardless. But as the gap widens between the lies and reality and as he repeatedly fails to keep all of his lies linin...

It's a typical behavior of narcissists. Claim victimhood while abusing everyone else.

In my experience the thing that absolutely kills shame is exposure. When I just open up and talk to people about thing things I'm ashamed of, the shame gradually decreases. I've found 12 step groups useful for this as it's a space where I can say anything I need to and there will be no reply or comm...

There is no option for: carefully reach out a finger and stroke the fly. We used to do this in Madagascar where the huge flies were very plentiful but slow. When you order a drink at a restaurant, it comes with the coaster on top to keep the flies out!

I have a similar thing. My interpretation is that I have a very small functional or working memory. When using a paper scribble pad I can keep all of the aspects of an issue in full view on the paper as a stand in for memory. Since coming up with that explanation, I find I judge myself less harshly ...

Not sure how you feel about Buddhist ideas. I'm not one, but I find the techniques useful. If that's the case, I would recommend a book called "Radical Acceptance" by Tara Brach. You can also find loads of her talks online. Great for self compassion.

^ indeed! I know I can rattle on about s**t nobody is interested in. I have definitely autistic friends who take an enormous amount of energy because they struggle to understand boundaries. Some of them are learning as I learn to communicate better.

Nobody seems to have mentioned that some of those irritating talkative people are probably autistic....

Your co-worker has a lack of boundaries. Perhaps explaining politely that you need some quiet to be able to work would help?

Driving places in the UK always takes much longer than you think.

A few years ago I had a great time at a festival in the OP's neck of the woods. Small World festival in Kent. All live gypsy and ska music. Was great fun! I'm not fussed about seeing big name bands but I do love music and dancing.

^Mountain Goat, my son would love that tractor. He is has an old late '50s John Deere o n the farm. He is (I believe) most likely autistic with a special interest in tractors. At 16 years old he already drives for local contractors as well as on the farm. Amazing kid. I'm very proud of him.

A battered Nissan Hardbody pickup. 99 model with almost 300k kms on the clock. Though at the moment I only drive it at times I know there are no police around. I have not managed to pay it's licence since mid 2018!

As with most things, I fluctuate. I have managed to get to a degree of equanimity regarding death, but I think that when it comes down to the end, I might well be terrified anyway. It probably depends on how it happens. For me it's complicated by an encounter I had with a faerie who told me I would ...

One other possible interpretation would be if you ever leave sentences hanging without finishing them. I used to do that a lot when talking and trying to work out how best to say something. I would stop talking at a point which my words indicated was not the end of the sentence. I think I got this r...
