It doesnt have to be elaborated talk, if she's interested in you she will enjoy the conversation. Just go to her and ask her how is she doing, how was her week-end. ect

I can drive just fine. I even practiced architecture for a time (I was good at details). My mind can put it all together. What I actually see isn't together. Perhaps I am unclear in my description. I understand what you are saying, im just amaze on how the brain can function totally differently fro...

I don't see whole things. I see part of the edge of a door, then another part of the edge; my mind understands this to be a straight line. Then the same process with the top, bottom and then the inner side with hinges. It's almost instantaneous. But I can never see the whole thing, only parts. It's...

I trully beleive that I do, but I don't. If it wasnt for my wife I'd be a mess. She will be gone for 4-5 days next week and while I will enjoy some time by myself, I know my stress level will be higher after 2 days.

I'm just like you when im stressed and tired. It's a bad cycle because the more stressed I am, the harder it is to get good sleep and I even get more tired and stressed the next day. I really think i'm getting worst as I age too. I get very agitated and anxious when I had a good day of work or had g...

Yep, from a slap on the forhead all the way to smashing my head into a wall to hurt myself. The later it occured probably a handfull of times throught my life but they are all memorable meltdowns.

I have lost many family members(all my grand parents, uncles aunts.) and I have mourned and cried their lost. But when my father commited suicide 7 years ago my feeling were totally different. I was angry and while I was sad that he was gone, my anger would not let any tears go. I cried only when I ...

It's with that ability that I became filthy rich and built myself a underground lair on a remote island where nobody can come visit.

I call it my "little paradise"

I'm just like you with my wife, I guess it's easier for a man to be unattached and not seeking affection but we did get into argument alot about this. Now she understand and I understand too that her need are not the same as mine. When she need physical affection she ask for it and I give it to her,...

Would you be able to survive and reproduce 40 000 years ago with the way your brain is wired right now? If not then it's a disability just as much as being born with no legs would be. Are you disable because the way you function is not compatible with how society evolved? That's a different sort of ...

I wonder if we are talking about ego depletion ? That was an interesting read, I was not aware of this and can defenitely relate to it. From my experience, when I have a decision to take it's where I become the most tired I would say. Something about have too many options and overthinking the conce...

My therapist told me a while ago that the brain is the body part that uses the most energy. Roughly 20% of your total calorie intake is use by your brain on average. When in situation of stress or anxiety your brain is functionning full blast, therefore you burning alot of your energy. Have you ever...
