Same. I don't think people outright hate me, but I suppose I give off a too awkward air for people to want to get to know me better, and when some do, I say or do something too awkward... maybe? Sometimes I invite people to places myself, but that doesn't work out most of the time, either. I did hav...

???

Is that a thing? Is there a study about this? I mean, I've run a lot more in to articles about how single people, especially childless ones, tend to be the happiest than about single people being miserable.

It's a scientific fact that the mother is seriously harmed by having a growing infant inside her throughout her whole pregnancy. And there's nothing beautiful about morning sickness, which I would be terrified to go through due to emetophphobia. Some women suffer hyperemesis gravidarum, which sound...

Today in the bus, a teenager in the back suddenly started singing "Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer", which is fine and all, but... in October? Then again, I suppose it's better than swearing, which is what a group of them was doing before that.

Don't eat ice cream during the cold season, unless you can sit by a fireplace afterwards. Just don't; it's not worth it.

No. Most abortions are done when the thing inside the womb is still just a lump of cells. The lump of cells inside a woman's womb is like a parasite in a woman's body and threatens her life and health plus limits what she can do, while a baby that's been born does not. So no, a woman making the deci...

My support group meeting ended early and I didn't want to wait for the bus for too long in the cold, so I stopped by at a supermarket. I was supposed to just pass time and not buy anything, but of course I bought candy. That already made me feel guilty, and now I opened the candy bag and ate some of...

Hmm I'm throwing this seriously off topic, but since this is QFT's topic and he's not complaining, it's fine, right? By the way it puzzles me why, typically, straight people want to be their own gender while gay people want to be the opposite gender. I am opposite to this. I tend to internalize what...

Then again, there could be people who have both sensory and psychological reasons to avoid physical contact. Like, someone may have sensory issues, but they might also have negative experiences unrelated to them about physical contact, like having been abused in the past, so they avoid physical con...

Everyone is different, but not every one of a person's sensitivities will be unique. If enough people share their difficulties and how they deal with them, many readers will find one or two things that are applicable. Fair. Since it's winter clothes you're looking for, I'll focus on those. First, a...

This makes me wonder: is it really true that for all other aspies its all sensory and I am the only one for whom it is psychological? Or could it be that for other aspies it is psychological, too, and people mis-assume things just like they mis-assume with me? With how common thing sensory issues s...

Rule number 1: if the tags irritate you, just cut them off. But remember to somehow mark at what temperature they should be washed at, unless you can tell from the material. Aside from that, it depends on what kind of sensory issues one has. I'd say that the best way to figure out what works is to t...

This morning I realized that the schools around here are on their autumn break right now. Nothing to do with me, really, except that this means less people in the bus both during the morning and the afternoon. And that's good; nobody likes to travel in a full bus, and as a person on the spectrum who...
