I'm sorry for your struggles. Children are as diffcult as they are wonderful. Once a teacher asked me if I loved my son. I said yes, of course. In her view, I did not appear to love my child in the way that she thought it should look. I devoted myself to raising my children and worked very hard to c...

What you describe OP sounds like a wonderful relationship. Finding someone who makes you feel comfortable and can relate to awkward moments is so special. Its ok that you feel all disoriented when something unexpected happens - you will definitely get a little better at that! Everything is awkward w...

I can understand your confusion as to why you are struggling to find friends. I know I'm strange or somehow distinctly different. I don't like most people - they are rarely kind to me. I've made great efforts to connect with some people that I do like. Unfortunately, it rarely works to form a lastin...

When to have sex? 1. It's something you have thought about and want with this other person. 2. You feel comfortable enough to discuss your sexual preferences (depending on your previous experience or lack thereof). 3. You have made plans and are prepared with your birth control of choice. 4. You hav...

I 'm happy to see more ND people are out and about doing what they need or want. It wasn't as common when I was growing up. I recently saw someone who seemed to me to be on the spectrum and was having some communicatoin/miscommunication issues in a fast food restaurant. I was next in line and he had...

American vegetables intrigue me. I want to try squash and collar greens one day. I also want to eat authentic pumpkin pie. There are a lot of different types of squash - you never tried any? Collard greens are similar to cooked spinach. I love pumpkin pie but it does vary a lot - so don't give up t...

Just to recap: He cannot talk to his sister the landlord or she will throw him out of her house. Fences are tricky things so I would avoid touching it completely until your sister is motivated by other reasons to do something about it. Are you in a position to spend a substantial amount of money? If...

[/quote] Just in general, though, it seems odd you'd need to explain to anyone why you're single. It also seems obvious that the number one reason is that you're autistic and thus don't intuitively socially gel with others and in turn have not met a partner because of it. Mystery solved.[/quote] Ya....

How about printing out a mapquest set of directions or go totally old school and buy a map? Can you believe that was all we had for most of my life?!?!? Embrace google maps, or wayz, or any random gps - It's life changing! I love to drive and have gone thousands and thousands of miles from home. If ...

Young Victoria. On Netflix.

It's good to know that the chips work because I've always put them on my pets, but I'm never confident that enough people know about them to bother checking any fou...

We have coyotes in our streets too and yet people still let their cats out, even at night. And plenty of huge hawks as well. I have seen one caught myself. I don’t understand why they wonder when they go missing. Perhaps you can set up some outdoor refuge and if the cat is there all night then maybe...
