I just wore whatever I was comfortable in. I wore shorts in winter for years because my possible Elher Danos Syndrome in my knees where I can't have anything touch them. Sometimes in below zero weather. Heat bothers me more than cold anyway. I also had to go out in bitter cold in a tatty old hoodie ...

I don't know what I would do with my time without the things that interest me. I'm good at daydreaming but it wouldn't be a good full-time activity. Regarding being a vet...it would be great for you and the furry ones if you could help them. While you are trying to find a path to becoming a vet wou...

I don't remember her name, but there was this show called Animal Miracles or Miracle Pets, and one segment featured a lady who had a lot of learning disabilities and wanted to be a vet. Her school counselor even told her she wasn't smart enough to be one. It took her five times to apply to vet schoo...

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...

Have you gone to college yet? You do have to study hard to be a vet.....almost like human medical school. You also have to keep your wits about you at all times. And try not to let little slights affect you. No, I wanted to get my driver's license first (mother wouldn't let me learn at 16) because ...

When I was younger, I was always told I should do better in school. After all, I was so good at zoology, so therefore I should be good at other topics too. Sorry, I never really had a say in what became my special interest. My mom was mostly supportive of my special interests, she was just glad it w...

I've honestly never been able to ride a two wheel bicycle properly. Isn't hard to learn. You have to drive in towards the side that you are falling faster then you are falling in that direction. If the wheels move faster towards that side that you are falling then they'll get in your way and preven...

I was adopted but my mom says I had all the signs of a stereotypical autistic baby and didn't cry but SCREAMED. My mom swears she has hearing damage from me as a baby. I also probably had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome...my biological mother hung out in a bar all the time but the social worker took her word...

I've honestly never been able to ride a two wheel bicycle properly. I was fine with training wheels until some mean girls at my school who also lived next door to me told everyone I still used them. My mother now says I could always get a three wheeled bicycle with an attached shopping cart. The ex...

I run around with a Rocket Raccoon stuffed animal backpack and anyone that says anything is always positive about it. "That's so cute!" I used to take my elderly Timon plushie places with me at 20. People had something negative to say, I had a come back something along the lines of "H...

^^ That reminds me of a retiring actress who is frequently quoted as saying "I vant to be alone." She actually said "I vant to be left alone." One such lady was living on the fringes of an artistic/rural community with a decent view. Not wanting to be recognized, she wore the st...

Was anyone else 'sentenced' to door bangs by the government?  Whether it's garages, cars, or front doors, there hasn't been a single week, if not day in my life which was free of bangs, I'm so fed up.  For all the reasons people suicide for, they never seem to mention society's noise, which builds ...

I had this one lady who's first name was Karen. I hated her! She was always getting in my face and asking me invalidating and embarrassing questions and victim blamed me. Doped me up on drugs instead of suggesting my parents put me in a different school. I was aggressive because I was faced with con...
