I binge watched the whole thing in one day, as it was released on St Patrick's Day which is a holiday in Ireland. It had it's flaws, but it IMO wasn't as terrible as the critics seemed to think, otherwise I couldn't have watched it all in one day. It's difficult for a confused, traumatised character...

I'm aiming to run a playtest, once I find players who are willing to make the playtest reports back. As for why, Wizards of the Coast are a business, and the main profit in RPGs, such as it is, is associated with the sale of the core books of a new edition. While I'm mostly happy with 4th ed, which ...

It's one of my greatest fears, and I often felt that way when i was younger. I still tend to get overly defensive. In answer to your question, I sincerely doubt it. I know when i felt this way it was very entrapping and difficult to shake off. I find it helps me to tell my fears and concerns to some...

I did spot one last year - monotonous voice, lack of eye contact, inability to detect people weren't interested. I've been aware of him for a few years, but only since my own diagnosis and studying AS a bit, did i work up the courage to ask him directly, to which he replied yes. Due to a support gro...

I didn't swear at all when I was young, after all I had been taught not to. When I moved somewhere where swearing was more common, I eventually practiced swearing in private to desensitise myself to the process. It still feels wrong to me most of the time. Now I swear on rare occasions when particul...

I was told I had social anxiety before I got my Asperger's diagnosis. I do suffer from panic in certain circumstances, mostly predictable but not always. It's particularly annoying when it jumps on me unexpectedly. But not as annoying as job interviews, which have become increasingly more intimidati...

I lose energy quickly when i have to interact with groups, and need alone time to recover and recharge. That said, I feel lonely a lot of the time, living alone. When I was at or near college, it was easier to meet up with people when I wanted to. I moved recently, to a much nicer place, but further...

Absolutely.

For ages I couldn't stand up for myself, but was sensitive to injustice against others and could at least try something. Nowadays, after a lot of work, I find it much easier to hold my ground, but I still find it easier to defend others.

Is Ireland as beautiful as they say it is...?


Parts of it are very picturesque, popular with tourists and Irish alike. The Ring of Kerry, West Cork, The Burren, Connemara, the river Shannon, the lakes, Donegal etc.

Hello, I'm new here. My name is Tom and I'm 43, from Cork in Ireland. I suspected I was somewhere on the spectrum for a number of years, but I finally got diagnosed in February of this year. I'm a software developer, but have been out of work for a few years now, getting anxious about the interview ...
