Being unable to "fire off the parting shot" just before a contentious thread gets locked or deleted. A thread or posts being reported and deleted before you got a chance to grab some popcorn and read it, and you never understand how you missed it because you're always on WP all the time. ...

BUT...once you allow yourself to name a character "Toboggan" then ...youre on a slippery slope! (just kidding) Nice one. :lol: I actually feel Toboggan would suit a boy more than a girl. I used to have a pet called Tog and I always thought of him whenever I heard the word Toboggan. You co...

Those people drive me crazy.


I normally walk fast but when I'm feeling tired and just want to amble along I try to stay at one side of the path so that others can get past me.

Classic troll....that person who disputed you. Nobody called my dad a child abuser, I was just using it as an example of some of the conversations I've had on WP in the past. The member wasn't intentionally being a troll or anything, they just thought they were right because they probably believed ...

For some reason I love saying the word "toboggan", and I know it means a sledge to slide down a snowy hill on but it reminds me of a name and for some reason I feel it should be a name. I was thinking of calling the main character in one of my stories Toboggan because it sounds like such a...

When people here think they know your family member or friend more than you do, and then use your autism as a way of telling you that you don't know anyone's true colours because you're too socially inept. For example:- Member: Maybe your dad sexually abused your siblings Me: No, he didn't Member: B...

I'm a heterosexual female. I don't wear make-up very often or put much perfume on or have my hair dyed or wear skirts or dresses, but I'm still a woman because I...don't have a penis. So I'm a tomboy. That's how I identify myself. My female traits do come out sometimes though, like when I enjoy watc...

I feel the same. Some people think I'm being lazy. But sometimes the routine of work causes emotional burnout. Like life just goes on in a boring circle; Monday to Friday is the same, and the weekend goes by so quickly and the routine starts all over again. Sometimes I wish I did different days ever...

I don't really have a routine so that sort of change doesn't bother me. In fact I welcome it because too much routine can cause burnout, funnily enough. Sometimes I avoid certain situations if it means coming out of my comfort zone but that isn't the same as disliking change. The only change I don't...

The internet is so boring lately. WP seems inactive lately, the only sections that are thriving are the off the wall and the PPR, which neither spark my interest. Oh and maybe the news and current events but that's all right if you want to scare yourself, which my anxiety doesn't need right now. In ...

I like all except heavy metal or heavy rock. Women tend to hate that more in generally, yeah, not many female fans of metal music. What about Power metal, try that? Its a more melodic style of metal music. For example this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzvY77AmLtw I like rock like Queen and that...

I just don't want people at work thinking I'm suffering with mental illness. I think there's a stigma attached to mental illness that you're "insane" or "mad" or something. But, then again, I believe mental illness is quite in these days, a lot of NTs I meet seem to be suffering ...

I've booked 4 days off work, not next week but the week after so that should "recharge my batteries", in other words give me a week's break from the monotony of routine. Communicating doesn't wear me out, just the drudgery of routine. I love my job, it's not that, it's just that I don't ha...

People with a really loud sneeze that makes you jump every time. The noise of their sneeze echoes around the room about 3 times and shatters through you. I'm a hefty sneezer but I don't shout my sneezes out. When people advise me that exposing myself to my fears and anxieties will cure me. This may ...

I feel my routine is so repetitive, I just need at least three consecutive days where I can just do nothing. The weekend isn't long enough and is usually full of things that need to be done that I don't get a chance to do in the week. I don't have many annual work holiday days but I'm tempted to tak...
