You're not the only Christian here. I used to be Catholic, now I'm just a non specific Christian.

Objects? Only thing I can actually think of is boxes of any kind.

Had collections of few things in between, but not even close to an obsession.

Ooooh! I LOVED boxes as a kid.


The rest of my obsessions are... Less tangible.

My mom always said I reminded her of Timon from the cartoon version of Lion King, Ramona Quimby from the Beverly Cleary books and Farley "Fudge" Hatcher from the "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" series by Judy Bloom. My boyfriend at the time said I reminded him of Yodaweechi fro...

I'd be angry too if my parents took away my special interests and would destroy the house as well. If they're going to destroy my life by taking away my special interests, I'll destroy their house. Thankfully my parents were not "age appropriate" Nazis and did not care less if I liked some...

I had trouble with this too. Still do according to certain people. It was my tone. But the other party also talked with a "tone" and would not apologize or accept the fact they were talking with that tone; but expect me too though. . My mother and father would constantly get on me for my &...

By the way, James Alfred Wight (James Harriot) was my hero when I was a kid. I started reading his books when I was about eleven and they have remained some of my very favorite books of all time. I also wanted to be a vet when I read them but that wasn't my calling. As an animal lover, I am so glad...

Why do they insist on playing loud pop music? I had to to in to the ER for a migraine headache and couldn't stop vomiting and the stupid music was making it worse. If they insist on music why not classical or nature sounds? I wasn't able to fall asleep because of the music. Ear plugs don't block it ...

Special interests have always been my main autistic trait. If my parents tried to take them away from me like I hear some parents do, I probably would have attempted suicide. Ever since I learned what a veterinarian was and that the role wasn't restricted to the lady we took our pets to once a year...

Internet classes I'm not sure of. There are no veterinary or even basic biology courses online and I have no idea how to pay for a class. NO college class is free in my country. I guess that suggestion is contingent on how much you have already learned. There is a lot of free information scattered ...

It sounds like geography and a pandemic are complicating things for you-- a lot . And if currently-reachable places won't even take a volunteer then near-term prospects are scarce--but that's just for now . Things can change over time. We don't necessarily know what changes to expect, but we can ex...

I found an elastic strap attached to a sleeping bag as a kid. Something about the way it felt then I rubbed it against my fingers felt soothing. I cut it off the sleeping bag and carried it around with me to "pet" during the day. I also was oddly attached to my pillow because of how it sme...
