ok so this was actually yesterday but it was so fun.
I took the works of Shakespeare, put on the play of King Lear, on youtube and followed along for like 3 hours. it was hard because they paraphrased alot, but i loved the experience.

The triple whammy is to add ADHD so your brain hyperfixates on it. The quad whammy is to have ASD, ADHD, PTSD, and CPTSD. Then you're totally f'd. Welcome to my brain! :mrgreen: Oh, try adding Synaesthesia too, so all the senses and triggers are cross-wired and interwined. :( i think i'm experienci...

hi sorry i've been gone for a while. good question my understanding of limerence is either a strong and sort of obsessive attachment to a potential or existing lover (which does not apply to me) OR the same towards a platonic friend. this person may be very plain and mellow, but to you or I, they ar...

also, my therapist and psychiatrist are very careful to reiterate that they are not able or interested in trying to diagnose me. they keep it very professional and focus on helping me "feel" and "function" and i appreciate that. i do, however, regret sharing so much because now i...

i'll look into that. got some very valuable info from a trusted family member. turns out the narcissists are disliked by most everyone and i have more support than i thought. but they do tend to enable them. i'll look into your suggestion anyways. thank you

so i've been at odds with 2 family members who i love but their influence with the family that i live with is a concern to me. I'm, in my opinion, the scapegoat and target for criticism, mockery, and manipulation. As i cannot afford my own place, i'm trying to figure out a way to be peaceful but pro...

i felt like it was less about me and more about what i wasn't. one thing is for sure, i'll take both your advice, i will be as real (even alil crass if it calls for it) and i won't think too much about what's expected. i think i'm gonna focus on adhd for now.

It took me 64 years to even consider whether or not I was o n t h e A u t i s m S p e c t r u m so I won't presume to guess whether or not you are, but I will note that many of the traits of Autism are not unique to Autism. And you mentioned ADHD. My understanding is that ADHD and Autism share some...

it was 3 hours long, including having me describe a story book with no letters. a few pictures of scenerios (looked like something for children) and asking me a few general questions. they said they followed the dm-5. they were very polite but it didn't feel solid. it felt incomplete (like there wa...

Awww, I'm sorry to hear that. It must be extremely frustrating but at the same time I like your attitude of looking for the next possible explanation with an ADHD assessment. I did my ADHD two years after ASD at a different place, and a lot of the tests were going to be the same as ASD so they just...

I had a similar experience. I already knew I didn't fit every single criteria, but the specialist said I didn't qualify because I don't fit every single criteria. Well, I could have told her that! Autism is a spectrum and it includes a lot of different aspects and not everyone will fit into it neat...
