I think it comes down to what it is that you want and how you feel. If what you want is to salvage the marriage and that's how you feel, then work on that (acknowledging that it might not work out, but you will at least have tried). If breaking up would feel like a relief and that feels like what is...

I know how awful it can feel to be in that pit of disgust at the outside world, plus self-loathing. This is probably not what you want to hear, but can you try to make the best of it? Even if you can't change your circumstances or how other people treat you, you can try to treat yourself better. If ...

You mean like a backhanded compliment? Or things like, "That shirt doesn't look that bad; no one noticed." They're assuming that you know it looks bad and they're trying to make you feel better, but you actually think it looks fine. I can't think of a specific instance, but little things l...

I think it's terribly rude to lie, which is something that NTs, and maybe autistics too, do all the time for the sake of politeness. Not that I would want someone to go out of their way to say something unpleasant to me, but I would rather someone be blunt than leave me guessing or leave me in the d...

Only at home on my laptop, and only sitting on my bed, which is where I normally sit when I'm at home.

Also when I've been away visiting my sister, and then also on my laptop and on the bed.

The only video game I've ever played is Tetris. I suppose I also played Space Invaders a little, back when it was a tabletop game that you could play at a pizza place (it was built into a table that you could sit at to play), but not for very long before the game ended in my defeat, and I didn't wan...

I think I know what you mean although my own experience is from the opposite side. I have never been pretty and I think it's made my life much easier. I have had to fend off a lot fewer creeps (there are still some, regardless, at least there were when I was younger) and just haven't had any of my l...

I don't have personal experience with this, but birth control pills can be used to reduce the emotional effects and mood swings of PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome): Menopause is still far away for you, but since you asked about it, ...

What if you tried to communicate with your dad by email? You say he can't email. Would he just not answer you?

I haven't owned a car since the 90s and I don't want one because I am a terrible driver, so I can't offer any advice, but it seems like you have a lot of knowledge and are on top of things. Good luck!

I agree that there seems to be some kind of preoccupation with age. And I agree that age doesn't matter. I am 60 and I feel exactly the same as I did when I was 40. And I don't look very different either. I think that when I was a kid older people were much older, not only because people live longer...

I'm sorry I didn't read everything because this is a very upsetting subject, and I certainly don't need to read Zionist rants at a time when 30,000 Palestinians, mostly children and women, have been murdered by the Israeli state. It doesn't really make any difference to the outcome of the election i...

I'm not great at remembering the names of streets, but I love maps. I love to study maps and I can pretty well visualize where I am and where to go if I have seen a map of the area I am in. I rely on Google maps nowadays but I actually love folding paper maps where you can see a large area all at on...

I wish I knew more about how to access help for people with ASD. I don't have any advice, I'm just responding to let you know that people here on WP care about you and wish you well.

Are you thinking that you might be clumsy and would struggle to learn how to do a trade job? Because learning how the mechanics of things work seems like it would be well suited to ASD. (Although I am not very well versed in that sort of thing myself.) I have a friend who is undiagnosed but probably...

I think it's fine to start a new topic. It's better, in my opinion, than digging up a very old thread.
