I've had it with FB, I don't use it anymore, mainly because I wasn't getting any satisfaction and the layout was driving me crazy.

I sometimes feel bad because they work so hard to convince me and, unless my personal analysis of all factors involved results in a "yes", there's no way that they'll be able to influence me. They don't know I'm Autistic, so they attribute their "failure" with me to a flaw in them... I'm impervious ...

Yes, he enjoys the things I do, he doesn't appreciate me for them. Story of my life with people... I used to put up with this from everyone, before I wisened up. I'm not a doormat to anyone anymore, except my parents, that was my decision. Philippinos are the most caring people in the world for the ...

What he wants is to live as best as possible with my help, of course. Just now he called me because I didn't come visit today, after driving him back and forth these past few days like crazy between cities for all his hospital appts. (when I don't work and don't have money for gas), apart from takin...

I agree, that's why if she had mentioned the fact that it was a tragedy, seven years ago, then she and I could've worked on reacting to it as what it truly was - rather than me being surprised each time I didn't cope with something well, or blaming myself because I lost my job shortly after the trag...

Maybe people who lie to themselves are happier in the short term, but not in the long term. At some point, they must face truth, or at least failure to attain that which they lied to themselves that they would get. I find the outcome of self-delusion so well-known beforehand that I can't endure how ...

Thank you, Spirit. Indeed, we were discussing the other day on my Yahoo list for people who were diagnosed late in life, how it's so hard to discern whether a symptom is rooted in AS or in PTSD... I think it may be both. Maybe if I didn't have AS, the whole process would've been different. This may ...

I can totally see its root being in the inability to multi-task. I know that my hyper-focus is the most accute and pervasive of my AS symptoms and the root cause for a whole amount of maladaptive social behaviors. I know hyper-focus is not given the central importance in AS traits as it has in my li...

I had always more or less thought that's life, and life is tough for adults, but now that I think about it, not everyone has to take care of TWO parents paralyzed from head to toe. My mother wasn't able to communicate for years, I had no idea if something hurt, or anything. She couldn't move anythin...

This delayed reaction issue...I've always had it. But I thought it was due to having been neglected as a child, and therefore not having learnt to notice my own needs and rights and the severity of my problems... Millie, do you think it indeed may be rooted in our neurology? Interesting...!

I never had the opportunity to tell someone the whole story, seeing as I have no one close. I always had to leave out part or parts or change the story or hide it altogether, depending on who I was talking to. No one ever heard the whole story, so it only just now dawned on me that I may have had a ...

It's not about having things in common but about what your lives revolve around. If you're obsessed with classic cinema and I love classic cinema and watch a movie once every couple months, we won't have enough in common for it to pull us into a friendship. But if we're both obsessed with classic mo...
