It is fun to see what interesting looking ones I can find. I think a lot are quartz or have a lot of quartz crystals in them. Nice to see other collectors! It can be hard to identify some, especially the more plainer looking ones. I found a few that are definite grey but have sparkles all through th...

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it seems the best that I could find. Does anyone else collect rocks? I live where they opened up a new park that was an old quarry, so every time my husband and I go for walks I find new rocks that are neat. He has kind of gotten into it too a li...

It's pretty hard to read and decipher but if you can pick out the main points, it makes sense.


I just bought the kindle version of it, when I get a chance I will have to read it!

No- I've been very avoidant re further education. Opened up for the first time ever to my care coordinator about it on Wednesday It's something I've mentioned online several times, but never to a mental health professional. She said it was a trauma response to the severe verbal bullying , and that ...

Yes, very much so. I have real trouble not worrying or overanalyzing everything. I think in my head I am trying to "prepare" by overthinking what could happen as a way to work through it before it happens, since I am not good with sudden changes or things like that being thrown at me. I do...

Wow interesting, thank you for explaining it in easier to understand terms! I wonder if females have more of this protective effect because biologically speaking females carry the offspring, thus wanting higher chances of survival (optimal chance) for females to ensure the better continuation of the...

Somehow I don't understand the article.
I'm not sure what they're saying.

Brief summary please?

I feel way more autistic than any of the autistic men I know.
Is that what it's saying?


Yeah I am also having trouble figuring out what it is saying.

Funny thing is I had speech therapy as a child, because my talking wasn't correct (also talked in a monotone) and I hardly talked, yet they missed any autism diagnosis. Ah well. I'm decent about speech now, but if I get in an unfamiliar situation or new situation and have to socialize then I get pre...

I did a little, got an AA in liberal arts because I didn't really know what I wanted to do. Also, couldn't really handle going away to college (now I know probably due to problems with the autism) and did ok grade wise but never fit in good. It was hard for me to transition from high school (familia...

This sounds silly because I would think by now being almost 40 I would know how to do these things correctly. When I'm writing a text or trying to talk (especially with a phone call, or even in person) about a touchy topic or something I tend to ask my husband how to correctly word a response becaus...

So, a tickle is a blanket? Like a baby blanket? Man I would have flipped if I lost mine. I had to retire it due to too much wear, but still have parts of it! silky material I rub I think its a stim but I seem to be the only one. with it I do the same thing, I love rubbing cool fabric between my fin...

Glad things are starting to be a little more sorted out for you, good on you for handling all that though it has been very stressful for you. It's particularly hard for autistics it seems to handle stuff getting thrown at you all at once. Not an easy situation at all, but you are definitely handling...

IsabellaLinton Thanks for the information. I didn't think about universities, I may look into that. After finding out this information (especially cost) I am still trying to decide whether to further look into it or not. It would mainly be just validation and being official, which would be nice. I ...

Thank you for the replies. I was just trying to get a feel for if that price range and number of sessions sounded about right. Sounds like the one I contacted, that the cost could be a little lower and number of sessions not as many. The other thing that made me real hesitant was she wanted me to si...
