When people diagnose their baby with autism, and you meet the baby (like 8 months old) and they're developing normally and making eye contact and everything. Maybe because the baby isn't talking yet so the parents are all like "the baby isn't talking! It means autism!" without understandin...

I'm hoping it is stress, as I did overworry way too much a few weeks ago. I was almost climbing the walls with anxiety and depression and I slapped my head angrily with my hand because I got frustrated with myself for not being able to make friends. Also the stress of the noise the upstairs neighbou...

I've probably got cancer somewhere. I'm so scared. If I do have cancer I hope it isn't in the bowels because I hate colonoscopies. I know it isn't ovarian or cervical cancer because I've recently had that checked and it came back as normal. I have no symptoms in any particular place so if I do have ...

I want to listen to the lovely rain and wind outside. Upstairs neighbours: Let's sweep all the hardwood floors, get the vacuum out, and drop as many things as we can on the floor, in every room I want to have a nice, relaxing bath after a hard day at work. Upstairs neighbours: Let's give our baby a ...

When I was 16 my mum got me into this club thing for teenagers with disabilities. Turned out to be a MENCAP place and it really wasn't for me. Nobody there was capable of making friends and the people I spoke to the most were the volunteers (who were NTs) but I don't think they were there to make fr...

There's a supermarket trolley in our living-room. I am furious. He went out to get some more alcohol then several hours later I got up for a glass of water and found he had brought a trolley all the way home and parked it INSIDE our living-room! What the f**k?? And he was confused as f**k (so drunk)...

Probably 1999-2000 because I seemed the happiest I ever was - I wasn't lonely like I was in my teens, and I was normal at school and had caught up with my peers socially and emotionally (before I fell back again), and things were going well in my life and everybody in my family were well and happy. ...

If he smokes, it may be covering up the odor. If you live with a smoker long enough you get "nose-blind" to the smell. The alcohol to will act as mouthwash, which also cut down on bacteria and odor. But I once knew someone who drank and smoked and he had foul breath. My boyfriend doesn't ...

If a friend badmouths someone else to you, they are actually trusting that you won't go and tell that person what your friend said about them.

I don't think it's very hygienic to change a nappy in the kitchen, especially when people are eating.

I think what Fireblossom meant was turning up to a party unkempt, not just walking down the street. I don't like dressing up, due to sensory issues (most women's formal clothes seem to have itchy tags that are hard to remove, or they stick out or show, which I don't like). So this seems to be the ma...

I never said that smoking weed necessarily makes one a failure. There are many successful people who smoke a lot of weed. I was speaking of the combination of weed, just hanging out with no job as an adult, and getting into people's faces in public----that would make one a "failure." Smok...

When I was an adolescent and misbehaved in public my mum would often say under her breath "when we get home I'm going to beat you!" But she never did. It was just a way to get me to stop, which it usually did. I suppose it depends on the frequency. If a parent always said that even when th...

It's up to you. Some people are like "no, don't tell them!" but I don't think it really makes a lot of difference whether you do or not, especially in a volunteering job. A lot of ND people do volunteering so they might be used to ND people. The reason I don't tell people about my ASD is b...
