I have often contemplated leaving everything behind. As a Buddhist I have a strong tie to this tradition, and see that it has its strong points.

Thanks for the wake-up call, Chuck, but alas! To no avail! For I am so far behind I just looked up and saw my own a$$!

It is very useful for physical and mental well being. T'ai Ch'i is meditation in motion, and if you understand the theory behind the motions, it is also a very effective martial art. I have practices for several years, though I need to get back into it. It helps with my arthritis, and is a big help,...

i am rather good at 'doing' jobs , i am rather bad at knowing what to do as a job, and finding one ... That's the tough part. I have stumbled into a job where my quirks are accepted, and I get paid decently for something I love doing, but it was by accident. Anyway, I think if you take that job you...

Second that! Go Lemon!

You will do great. You won't think so, but you will. I question my job performance every day, but I really am pretty good at what I do. Quirky, but good.

What can you do? You are doing exactly as you should, NT or otherwise, and to do any less would be a slight bit of negligence on your part. What, are you supposed to NOT ask about terms you're unfamiliar with and just repeat what you THOUGHT was meant? The business world can be kind of like the play...

I will take a double helping of the mayhem!

And a muffin!

And I heard talk of virtual caffeine! Makes me wonder if it would be any better than my usual caffeine intake method, the I.V.

I do as well, and am currently seeking help from a rheumatologist.

Try T'ai Ch'i. Much the same as yoga, but easy on the joints, and doesn't require as much flexibility as yoga

I am who I am, and part of who I am is autistic. If you cured that when I've spent my life making it work for me, what do you take away from me? Do I want it taken away?
