Yes people whine, use excuses, and say "poor poor me" when they have the ability to "bootstrap" their way out of their troubles or at least be in a better situation. And some of the greater then 80,000 members at Wrong Planet fit that description. That is stating the obvious. The words "victim compl...

Just started CBT for Autistic anxiety. Have had only one session so far so I can’t give you any feedback yet. It is my first psychological therapy in 5 decades. While I have mixed feelings about behavioral therapies I am trying it for several reasons. Adult services are so rare I feel I have to put ...

Stereotyping people that identify as Aspie as Ass-burgers, elitists, fakers, excuse makers apparently is ok here on this “support group” website.
