It does sound like you're experiencing depression or something like it. Maybe also anxiety? It sounds like you worry you aren't doing more with your life. What would you say keeps you from trying to write music or drawing? It's easy to psych yourself out by always thinking that there's always someon...

One of my close friends who is also on the spectrum has a tendency to snap at people, especially their friends. (I worry that I've made a topic about this before but my memory sucks sigh). Most of the time it's not serious or nasty. It's just that in just about any conversation I have to worry about...

I mean of course I could leave myself a note or put a timer on my phone or something else healthy, but doing something harmful gives me something to do right now in the short term instead of just having to wait around and dissociate until the next time I use the oven/coffee maker/whatever. I'm more ...

Does anyone here know of forums for those on the spectrum in languages besides English? I'm American and I only know German besides English, but I would like to have a chance to practice while also getting to interact with people on the spectrum who aren't (mostly) from the US or UK. And of course I...

I wasn't always great at identifying when others hurt me, or at least figuring out that I don't deserve it. I've received a lot worse than I deserved for years from some people (mostly just one) because I'd wronged them before, and I believed that anything less than abandonment was better than I des...

I really don't like where I am in life and I really want to go back to school to become a teacher. I graduated from college year before last and I didn't really get a degree or any particular skills that could set me down a career path. I spent all my years in school deeply depressed and barely func...

Well, if you unintentionally offended some people, apologize once you realize it and explain you didn't mean it. If they are still offended, it's their problem not yours. If you blow meltdowns on people, self hating makes it even more likely to occur again. The efficient way of preventing meltdowns...

It's not something I did intentionally. Funny enough it's mainly things I've done unintentionally that I have trouble letting go because I don't feel like I have as much control over whether I'll do them again outside of just being "more careful". It's not even anything too terrible that I...

I have a lot of trouble imagining why the people I've wronged wouldn't want me to hate myself. And if they somehow don't think I should hate myself, I don't see how that makes sense or why I should respect it. It also wouldn't take into account the opinions of the other people I've wronged who do th...

I've been reading news on a daily basis for years just because I like to stay informed and get multiple perspectives on issues. I've seen all the ups and downs and wars and famines and epidemics and oppression and disasters and it hasn't been easy but I haven't lost hope or anything before. But with...

This won't really work for any number of reasons. They've already noticed that I tend to avoid initiating conversation with them. Although I've been doing that for a long while even before I realized I didn't deserve to be treated like this because I have terrible anxiety. But instead of considering...

I have a very close friend and we've been living together for a long time but I've become aware of a bad habit that they have. They will often be needlessly negative in situations where it is completely unnecessary. This isn't to say that I have a problem with them ever being negative, I don't have ...

Irish immigrants were told to go back to Ireland when they came to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I'm sure that Germans were told to go back to Germany after WWI and WWII for a short period of between 5 and 10 years. I'm sure that a lot of Russians have been told to go bac...

....... theyd have to endure the society-destroying horrors of universal healthcare, accessible higher education, and openly socialist political parties. Not too sure about the last bit. The Centre-Left parties in most European countries often have 'Socialist' somewhere in their names, but generall...
