blueroses,

How time can change things. Not long ago (it felt so long ago), I remember here you were so blue. I guess that wishing well still holds many good things. I suppose my hopes for you came true. Someone so kind deserves to feel good things.

I'll say 8 too, as that makes me happy.

Honey (because sugar or something).

It takes my tongue 5 seconds to tell my brain that it is indeed honey. Yep, that one gets a neutral smiley face. :|

I'm not going to feel shame or unfairness for any medical condition I have. I may curse at life for some of my hardships and circumstances, but in the end, it's just the hand I was dealt, and I don't want another. I didn't have awareness of autism for 23 years or so. Not much changed afterwards, out...

I startle easily, especially at night. I’ve even woken up screaming because of this. It’s a wonder the neighbors didn’t call the cops. I do have trouble distinguishing or even recognizing unpleasant emotions that are less extreme. I feel numb a lot of the time. I'm sorry to hear about your sufferin...

Edna3362 , hopefully you're in the clear there. If it's anything, Omicron and its offspring aren't too bad comparatively speaking. Nothing like what came before. Speaking of COVID-19. My mother's cough is gone, which I'm obviously happy for, and that one took about a month or so to go. I guess it's...

As some of you have mentioned, I don't really recognize my own wants, feelings and so on, as I learnt they didn't matter and only those of the ones that made me walk on those eggshells do. Which then transferred to everyone else. I had to learn to walk on those eggshells or pain would be coming my w...

I don't like offending people. Emotionally hurting people. Regardless. Maybe made this way, maybe not. It is how I am, for good or bad. I avoid conflict entirely outside of self-defense. I'll usually just withdraw if I've inadvertently offended or emotionally hurt someone, but I've been working on t...

I don't really have a strong accent, even if it's there. I have a stupid voice, though. It's too soft, and if I try to speak louder, I then find it hard to talk. :? Which makes some phone calls a bother for other people. It also leads to people recognizing me easily over the phone, which is another ...

Twilightprincess, yeah, PTSD can affect emotions (thoughts and feelings too), so the therapist might just be right. It can always be both too, as you said. That one will be why I have an altered fear response, where I have little fear when it comes to just me.

Twilightprincess, that can be a symptom of alexithymia if you aren't aware of such, which is quite a common comorbid condition for those with autism (something like 50%).

No I just feel some more than others. It's more dysregulated when it comes to me, which isn't helped by some of my various personality quirks. Anger is something I barely feel, for example. I feel fear a lot, but it's not uniform, and often isn't there when it should be. I can get overwhelmed by it ...

I'm not really sure what's the worst in the end, mental or physical pain. I guess it depends on the day, and sometimes both have a say. For me, I'll say emotional, as that day-to-day physical pain is something I do get used to, but not the mental curse of never-ending panic and despair, which is my ...

The future, I guess. Lots of things there to think and feel about. My brain likes preparing for things, trying to predict things, likely because it learnt to do that from experience, as it makes things easier. I don't like how it does that one for some things, so I'm not doing it. Rather, I'm just t...

I like some, albeit I'm not the biggest fan of a "meal" being mostly liquid. :| Alright as a side dish thingy, though. I'm a big fan of stews. Which I have for dinner basically every night due to the simplicity of it all for an unprocessed meal that contains various meat/s, vegetables and ...
