Walking can be painful if you already have pain in your legs. Can you do some other kind of exercise? You probably don't have access to a bike or a stationary bike, though that's what I would try, since you don't have to put weight on your legs. There are floor exercises that you can do. There are i...

Do you think me weighing 168-170 pounds at about 5ft8 has something to with that? That is not at all a fat weight for that height. But yes, I do think people tend to gain weight over the years. I have to eat a lot less now than I did in my 30s to maintain a similar weight. It's not just a matter of...

Interesting thread to resurrect from 2018... :)

But no, I don't think people should be imprisoned for anything and that the whole criminal justice system needs to be restructured and rethought.

Certainly not for peeing in a pool, as disgusting and disrespectful as it is.

These adults who are criticizing you might think that they are being helpful, but they are not. There is nothing wrong with your interests.

I am so sorry that this is happening to you. I do think that it's an ASD thing to sometimes feel overwhelmed and react badly. Then you feel terrible because you wish you had handled it differently, but in the moment you couldn't, or you would have. I would say go easy on yourself rather than blaming...

I definitely feel younger than my age. If I didn't know my age and didn't remember, and I didn't have mirrors or could see my physical self, and I had to guess how old I am, I would probably guess I was 20 years younger. Maybe even younger than that. Other than being calmer and more accepting, and l...

I don't think that the pandemic has had a particular effect on me in that area, but I always find it hard to make friends and connect with people. I think all you can do is keep trying. One way to make a connection is to show that you are interested in knowing about the other person. Ask questions (...

I want to rest, but feel guilty for not doing more in life besides the chores I am able to take care of. It sounds like this is a part that you can work on. Acknowledge that you need rest and that you don't need to be doing more than you can handle. Your burnout will probably not resolve without re...

^What you are describing is a perspective that exists but it is not "wokeism." (And incidentally I agree with that perspective. It's true that because racism is embedded in the structure of society no one is immune to it and it's difficult to avoid perpetuating it.) The meaning of the word...

Is there a social worker at the group home, or who comes out to the group home, whom you can talk to and explain that the requirements are too difficult for you and are causing you pain and stress? Can you talk to the social worker who placed you at the home? What about your sister? Or is there some...

They are not specifically saying "Death to Israel" but "From River to Sea" which does mean Israel as a Jewish state needs to go. What the replacement for the Jewish State should be means anything from a multiethnic democratic state to the slaughter of the Jews. That means it is ...

Zionists shouldn't be allowed to get away with tossing this word around anytime someone brings up the ethnic cleansing of the Palestenians. Yes! It's a serious problem that any criticism of Israel is labeled by some as antisemitism. There are valid reasons to criticize the state of Israel, particul...

A subset of progressives or leftists and a subset of people who identify as woke are the same thing. Woke is not an ideology nor is it a particular group of people. It merely refers to an awareness of societal injustices and an awareness of the systemic nature of such injustice. Just about any lefti...
