Do you have any free services in your area? I don't know your specific problem, but in my area I use programs like NA/AA (Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous), we have a LGBT Resource Center that has free counselling, and I know at churches and missions there are different mental health support group...

Mine are very similar to the one in the video, although I as well have never tried to shove something up my butt (to my knowledge lol).

I scream and hit and smash my body into walls. Punch and scratch myself, pull my hair...it's not pretty.

Most of the things I hear people say, I wouldn't say myself. I generally don't say much unless it is important, and I also can't remember a time where I have been rude outside of an argument (on purpose). If it was me making the error in that situation, I probably would have said something like "Wel...

People always told me I need to work on my "social skills" or that my "social skills" aren't that great. Yet, I am mistified by what these "social skills" actualy are. What gets me too, is that it seems that in different groups of people there are different norms on which social skills to use. It i...

I get that quite a bit as well. I usually say "I was probably thinking or concentrating. My face looks mad when I do." Then it helps get people off my case as well, if they don't want to interrupt me if they figure I am concentrating on something.

I never liked that stuff... "get rid of your shoulds". Being comfortable with yourself is all well and good, but how exactly are you supposed to do that when all of your peers look down on you for being different? I agree. The answer I always get is that it is about self-acceptance, and there are t...

I believe I am still pretty young, mentally. Chronologically, I'm middle- aged (over 40), but mentally I believe I may either be in my teens or twenties. Hard to say. But I am trying harder to act my age; act like a man my age is supposed to. Here's hoping! :) It's the "trying" to act my age that I...

When things go my way or when I am calm and not hungry, I am normal. Plus when people understand me and my AS was worse in my last two relationships but with my husband it stayed the same. I don't realize how I am with my routines until relationships come and how much alone time I need. I am then r...

I think that like any other medication, cannabis can be good for some but bad for others. Certain strains have different effects as well, and what can help one person, could make the next person paranoid and anxious. I've been using for approximately 15 years. I've had to experiment and find what do...

The feeling is like trying to drag myself out of a trance. I often drift back to what I was doing as people are trying to talk to me because my attention was not fully disengaged. If I can manage to disengage myself and pay attention, I get very agitated, flustered, impatient and, depending on how ...

I use cannabis, and it not only calms me, but it makes me WANT to do things and focus and get involved.
