I don't know if anyone else used the extension Readability for busy web pages that have too much contrast or are hard to read, but it's really important for me .. it's been discontinued. I'm on Chrome, and the extension they recommend is the new Mercury reader but it doesn't appear you can change th...

In all seriousness, I thought some of you guys might benefit from reading this, since it is a little better than a lot of the advice I have read people give each other (which is probably good-intentioned, for the most part, but not always great advice) Not posting it to be a jerk. I think it really ...

I've met Brian and he's very sweet. At their show? From what I've read on the Internet he seems to treat his fans very well. I'm kicking myself for not seeing them when they came to my city in October. not at a show, at a bar after hours, so not in the context of being a fan of the band (although I...

...a gross misunderstanding. good. it came from an article about DBT that made it sounds like it consisted of a therapist basically berating their patient into emotional submission. ...the core lessons of DBT are: acceptance: accepting reality mindfulness: living in and being aware of the moment di...

They vary a lot, but commonly include low empathy, black and white thinking, shame, and problems with emotional control. This includes BPD. And, BPDs can develop social issues stemming from thei...

I have been playing a memory game online .. here is an example of what I mean (sorry if it's hard on the eyes .. if you do a search you can find others). http://www.web-games-online.com/memory/ It is your basic thing like a digital version of the old memory card game, where you flip two cards up at ...

I have a scary reaction initially to novocaine, shortly after the shot (rapid heartbeat, feel like I'm paralyzed in the throat) but it subsides and then I am ok .. I obviously overreact to it and have told dentists I am allergic (I sometimes also get migraines afterward) and was told I can't be. peo...

I don't necessarily think it's a female thing. More likely an aspie thing :)


I think it's an aspie anxiety / control thing. things change and you don't know why and you can't predict and you don't know if you've done something wrong.

Katzefrau- I think you made sense, thank you for the thoughtful reply. You helped me realize that if I want to get the connection I think that I deserve, I'm going to be the one that has to adapt. you're welcome. usually what I always emphasize is being authentic. I don't like advice that amounts t...

It's a mystical way of saying you can't have it both ways. Once you choose, it's over. If you eat your cake, it's gone; you can't have it anymore. so it's punitive? you've eaten your cake and so you lose: the cake is gone. Of course it's gone! it's there for eating. I can't really understand. No ma...

Katzefrau- Yes, I would say I'm very quiet, though I don't mean to be. I do feel like people act as if I'm not there (unless I'm lucky enough to get a one-on-one conversation with someone). In theory their behavior is rude, but it happens to me so much in so many different situations that I have to...
