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...

I don't think capitalism is all good. It has some good but it also has some issues.

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.

Incontinence and bedwetting can be common in Autism and it usually is either a muscle control issue or an interoception issue. The interception issue is where you literally cannot feel the sensation of what is happening in your body until it's too late. That is pretty common in Autism. I was also a ...

It sounds great but the skeptic in me wonders how extra sessions affects your bill. My medicare and medicaid cover that 100%. I have no copays. They don't limit "therapy" sessions and I am allowed to have this kind of assessment once a year, so I can redo and update my Autism diagnosis ev...

I totally agree with you. I think that no matter what your neurotype is, ND or NT, this kind of therapist would be wonderful for anyone. I am going to do a video for my channel on therapists and what I find helpful as an Autistic client. I also share all of these things with my own NT therapists and...

That is so unfortunately true. This woman is actually Autistic, as are the two members of her staff at that office. She has two locations. I don't think her staff at her second location is Autistic. This office is one of the most wonderful, relaxed, loving, and caring doctor's offices I have ever se...

My new Autism assessment is taking forever because the psychologist and I have become such good friends that we end up talking for hours every time we meet so we only get one test done with each appointment. It's so wonderful to have her as a friend with which we can talk and analyze everything unde...
