You didn't mention trying a band to flatten them, hold them firmly against the body (if physically possible based on cup size). I don't recall being as uncomfortable with my breasts as you write, but I wasn't pleased with them. Now approaching my 50s, I kind of like them. I am glad you are seeking a...

I am Aspie woman with NT man. We consider each other equals (albeit very different) --- sounds like you have similar view of your relationship. My marriage has been VERY hard, but likewise it's been Rewarding. What saved us were mandatory weekly 20-min talks, first stating two things we appreciate a...

Thanks for sharing. I'm only just now realizing how prominent my self harm has been, so its gonna take a lot of practice to put a stop to it.

You can do it! (Friendly teasing: It may take 20 years like it has for me, but you can do it!)

No tips here, just that it's possible. I'm self-diagnosed Aspie woman with an NT man who liked that I was different (teasing: he's an immigrant and didn't know better). I devour self-help books and classes and support groups (when I'm not kicked out); I'm Aspie and loyal while he's Capricorn and loy...

I'm at the onset of awareness, so a few steps (or miles/kilometers) behind you.

My self harm peaked in my 20s (cutting, head banging - the latter I didn't remember until I read your post) and has lessened since then. A doctor pissed me off (purposely!) and proved that if I can place my anger outside myself I will not hurt myself (he dared me). My problem for me is when folks (m...

Given I was an "odd" child and my niece was DX'd HFA years ago, I kept an eye on my kids. In the meantime, I applied typical parenting techniques - adjusting for individual needs, e.g. teaching my non-expressive/responsive daughter basic social skills. At 2 my daughter showed some signs. A...

@Mountain Goat, how to know? I have little idea as to when to assert myself and when to stay quiet so I am not foolish. I have those smiley bosses who say how wonderful I am and how wanted I am (as long as I remain marginalized) and then exclude me from most everything (and mock me) and if pressed t...

Perhaps before you found folks more like you (or otherwise inclusive) - school size small or large? And now you can't find folks in your current community? I was without friends in my new hometown until -ironically- a life hardship brought me into contact with LOTS of people (multiple support groups...

No advice, just commiserating. I am also being bullied, albeit by 50-year old men (both in my management chain). I am writing it all down (which is unpleasant since I don't like experiencing it much less reviewing the situation or transcribing it), I have already gone to HR (which dismissed my conce...

Ah, pros and cons. No to little wait here, but I will PAY (high deductible insurance). It's like you are in ASD gestation.

Four people at my office (out of 100) are using cubicle shade leaves. Easy to google. Previously folks would have bulbs removed.

I have a passion for puzzles (mazes and jigsaws as a child) and presentation (theater scripts). I puzzle and present at work (network design) --- but come to find out I enjoy the strategic part of it and my new management is saying that doesn't fit any more on our team --- and hence I find that I do...
