Welcome! Just as everyone has a different diagnosis, everyone has a different path through life. It seems to me that you have come pretty far despite the negatives of autism. Some of us have an easier path, some harder. It is hard but we all need to do is to figure out what is best for us. 26 isn't ...

I wear crop tops and skirts to stay cool.
I have a window A/C but haven't needed it in years.

I did some work up in the attic yesterday. That was really hot!

I suggest looking for a job with a compatible work environment. Who you get as a new manager will be most important if you have autism. It isn't important that the manager actually understand autism, as autism needs to be evaluated on a case by case basis. But, what is important is that they will wo...

Welcome! Sorry to hear you can't find help. That was pretty much the situation when my wife had ALS. The local support groups were mainly for supporting the caretakers, not the ones with ALS! And I didn't really need that help as it was how to find outside support and she didn't want that due to her...

That is normal. It takes conditioning to do physical work. Being retired, I can do a little at a time and build up my conditioning to do difficult tasks like lifting a car battery to take to the dump. Cooking can make ordinary food less boring. Tonight I made SPAM Musubi from a Hawaiian recipe. Addi...

Cooking can be a very cheap hobby, depending on where you live. The supermarkets around me have loss leader sales to get you into the store. I recently bought London Broil for $2 per pound and made steak garlic bites. 6 oz of steak is $.75, much cheaper than fast food takeout! It does require a bit ...

Due to the high cost of IVF, multiple embryos are transferred at the same time.
This isn't as necessary now that testing of embryos has improved.
Tech is constantly improving when there is big money to be made.

But one thing is most certain; we all hate itchy stabbing tags. In my sewing days I'd use a seam ripper to re-do mistakes. I wonder if anyone here uses a seam ripper to remove those tags? Some skill is required to avoid putting holes in clothes. I'd certainly practice on some less desirable clothes...

I've recently seen skimpy crop tops and short shorts that show almost as much skin as a 2 piece bikini.
Does clothes like that help anyone with autism?

Good thing I live alone! I wear high heels at home on hardwood floors!
I find it helps my balance and coordination!
When you get to my age that often becomes a health issue.

A good pair of heels will grab the attention of those around you.
They make a distinct sound on floors that make people stop and look!

They are great for fashion. I have shoes in different colors to do different things with my outfits.
These days I often wear shoes with a floral accent.

Former President Trump was taunting the gunman, standing up and shaking his fist after the assasination attempt. This is poor judgement, a President should be trying to minimize, not maximize, the carnage from such a horrific event. Every shot fired into a crowded venue is likely to cause serious ha...

Sound to me like she wanted to change you and that doesn't happen in real life. Only in fictional stories and movies.

Now she is gaslighting you.

Beware. Stay away.

If I understand Trump's court filings, the President has immunity to illegal acts.
So, it doesn't matter whether or not the President's rhetoric triggered someone, as he has immunity.
Trump, on the other hand, isn't President right now, so the playing field is not level.

I just learned about flu-flu arrows so I may be able learn how to shoot a bow and arrow in my back yard!
They are limited range arrows for shooting at aerial targets.

As I gain experience I can deal with more external factors, such as a group of kids learning to play golf on the other half of the chipping green. As well as more static variables like ground slope and turf conditions.
