Thank you so much you guys! After putting up with their incompetence and unprofessionalism for 17 years, I finally had enough. The main reason I liked them and stuck with them for so long was their proximity to my house, it was a very short commute. They also do OMT, osteopathic manipulation therapy...

I can't quote the original post because me computer is from the 1600s and it won't work properly. You feel much younger because you are much younger. The Autistic brain is literally younger than its neurotypical counterpart in emotional and social areas of development. That is part of the definition...

When you are completely alone, rested, and uninhibited, take note of who you are.

Has anybody tried to tell you that you are making excuses, when you are trying to explain your disability? What's the difference? I get that all the time and I hate it. The difference is in the intent. If you are saying what you are saying just because you want to get out of doing something that yo...

It's common for everyone to not like themselves.

I sometimes think I wouldn't be regretful if I had spent the last decade having lots of sex, travelling to multiple countries, drinking and partying all the time, driving fast cars and so on which I seem to think every 20 year old does or is doing right now. I'm sorry if that sounds like I'm stereo...

The lawyer contacted me again. She is relentless. I had decided to do the no contact thing but I can't block her until I get what I need from her. I can't respond because I refuse to engage and fuel her bullying. But the pain that this is causing me is unbelievable. People look at me and they see my...

Try not to think in those terms. You are you. There is no right and wrong in that. You function however you function. It's not about being right or wrong in how you function, you just need to function in a way that works for you no matter how it compares to other people. This is why I hate it so muc...

I wondered if your evaluator were Autistic. I score high analytical and visual and lower verbal --- I thought that was more of us than not, except for MountainGoat. :D ---- I have an extensive vocabulary but I can't access it easily. It took me 5 minutes to spit out "paradox" a few days a...

Diagnosing Autism is incredibly complex when it is done correctly. It's not that simple. It's not just about social difficulties and IQ levels.

I definitely meet most of the criteria. There is one, however, that I think is wrong and should not be in there at all. It's the one that says more rote than meaning. They can't assume that things we do have no meaning. Every single thing I do in my thoughts, actions, vocalizations, and behaviors, h...

That kind of thing happens to me sometimes. It's one of the ways that I know that I am exhausted and need to rest for a long time.
