My biggest failure is that I haven't achieved peace, or contentment within myself. There have been external successes, my education, I'm financially ok, I've achieved one remarkable thing in terms of leading a political social reform, but my relationship with myself remains a painful failure. Person...

Because of love. As long as just one person or even one creature loves me, whom I love back, I'll stick it out. I have a son and grandchildren and a cat who really do love me. And there are others that geninely care, which is another form of love. But if that vanished from my life too, I think I'd b...

They don't throw great parties. They don't get elected entertainer of the year. They don't fight back nearly enough when someone takes advantage of them. They never forget when someone takes advantage of them. They don't live on this planet.

I voted yes. The only qualification would be "as long as I could keep my writing skills". I don't see my aspie-ism as part of my identity but more as a prison in which my identity exists. For me a cure would make the difference between living my life rather than just existing, with continual anxiety...

Yes, I do feel that. I mostly enjoy my solitude, (as long as at least one lovely cat keeps me company at home) though it wasn't the way I would have preferred to live for nearly all of the four decades of my adult life. I accept that I will always be alone from now on. Outside of my family and my NA...

It's particularly bad when I am rushed, distracted or anxious. Tonight I was all three on the way to a meeting and lost a valuable ring on the way :(. It;s not everyday. Somedays I forget to eat and only remember when I begin to feel woozy from low blood sugar. I am easily distracted - for example i...

I'm affected very much by the tones in the voices of the song singers, recently have 'tuned in' to the Lioness CD of Amy Winehouse. Sadness, wistful regret, I connect with that. Most favourite though for me is Ray Charles: Particularly "You Don't Know Me" and "Still Crazy After All These Years". The...

Currently living with both kinds of pain, physical and emotional. It gets to me, especially just now. Having an operation soon hope the pain will be better by the middle of the year. Be good to be able to go for a walk again when I recover. The isolation has become painful lately. Both hips need rep...

yes, minor keys resonate with me emotionally too, although I am unsure what or which emotions they resonate with - this may sound silly but I really don't know. It goes to a level of me deeper than thought, it's an instinctive set of responses. I've been in a very long relationship with a jazz music...

There are a lot of reasons I like them: No pushy sales assistants bugging me to buy Can browse as long as I like, no one minds I collect vintage lingerie and occasionally make a major find No nauseating muzak Sometimes I find objects to 'rescue' - neglected things that with repair and tlc are restor...

I'm 65. In one way it's a good age for me because my son is in his early 40s, and he is the one adult in my life with whom I can express myself openly, and that works both ways, he still needs a mother but not to be mothered, and I need help sometimes when my health goes through a bad phase - I had ...

Or favourite minor keys? Mine are D and E and they profoundly resonated with me from the age of 8 when I didn't even know what they were. They really touch base with me emotionally, especially in music written by Mozart and Chopin. Have you had any similar experience?

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who may have had the experience of performing music without any conscious awareness of doing so. This happened to me during a music exam a long time ago. I took my seat at the piano and suddenly couldn't seem to make any sense of the keyboard, as if I had never...
