I weary of this crushing non-specific pain of unkown etiology.... it's a vicious circle, I feel bad so I go out, I usually have a good time, then I crash, and I feel bad so I go out, I usually have.... the only drugs that help I get from Willie down the street, he's also my bartender... Synergy is ...

Thanks for that. I am sure you will be happy to know I got my job back, and it was a silly clerical error all along. This is why I was so frumpy-grumpy in that reply. I had been out of work for 5 weeks as they 'investigated.' I truly thought it was time I was being sent to pasture, itsme82. Please ...

Geeze, itsme82, it must have been years ago that I wrote those thoughts. I was out in the world then, working, commuting, using a laundromat, that sort of thing. I am now retired, live in a small motorhome with my cat on the wild Pacific Northwest coast and rarely talk to anyone in person. I absolut...

I'm a little confused. What makes you think I'm an alcoholic? It just because I'm an Aspie? it's probably because I used your quote to just post my own story. :oops: I apologize, I meant absolutely no commentary upon your own behaviour or lack of it. I will try to find out how to post without 'repl...

I'm one of the seemingly rare moderate drinking aspies. I never binge drink and have about 2-3 drinks a week (except in England, where I had like 8). I have an average tolerance for alcohol, but for some reason, people assume my alcohol tolerance is low, so a few people have advised me to order lig...

Yeah, I have a alcoholism issue too. So far it's already caused me physical harm; harm which I can only recover from by stopping drinking. I've made it 4 days without a drink now, and I'm hoping I can keep up this streak! To put it bluntly, if I were to continue my drinking I would seriously harm m...

. . . (excellent post, but I want to respond to . . .) As for why men are supposed to protect women, it's a form of benevolent sexism, viewing women as weak and in need of protection whereas men are viewed as strong and self sufficient. This sort of chivalry isn't always (or even necessarily by def...

Old threads get bumped mostly to see who responds. Wrangling with management does nothing to keep old threads getting bumped. I learned the hard way to let sleeping dogs lie around here (no pun intended, I am sure.)

So they sent in the gimp to deflect the truth. Oh yes, Trump is beset by such horrible conspiracies! Poor Trump! And Gimp? Really? I'm always amazed and saddened when I see ableism and name calling of others with disabilities here on WP. Actually, it was a literal use of the term 'gimp,' Edenthiel,...

I'm not sure the Nazi Party would accept him. He wants to prevent a specific ethnic group from entering this country. He wants to outlaw a specific religious group. He wants to round up those that are here and place the in internment camps. He considers disabled people to be sources of amusement. H...

Trump accused the reporter of "using his disability to grandstand." I have roughly "passed" for neurotypical all my life. I was never screened as a child and, indeed, my sort of autism hadn't been observed widely as yet. All the trials and tribulations (and grand adventures) happ...
