I had the confession of sins yesterday. After it I had calming feeling of something like relax... The priest said that things which I said were not mortal sins in my case (for example because of my disability, I think).

But I think that even without religious problems I would not function so much better. I "hate" doing complex tasks such as project or presentation on the studies.

I have really small amount of contact with the specialists, which may be frustrating for me. I think that my story could be an "interesting novel"... I am "sluggish", slow, "deconcentrated", with "poor" energy. My scholastic abilities are quite precocious. But my occupational and technical abilities may be problematically low. I have problems with thinking about my future job.

I am not like "traditional" Aspies, I might conclude that I am really unique and it means that all people are significantly different than me, even Aspies. Being twerpy kook may be even more destructive and problematic for me than being just a Aspergian nerd.

Being unable to 'connect' with people in the ways I'd like.
Often feeling like I am more of an observer rather than active participant in life.
Most of all having nobody to cuddle.

I seem to be able to plan ahead at most something like 5 or 15 minutes. When I

am able to accept and embrace this I am pretty happy :-)

Mine are the meltdowns / challenging behaviour, and sensory issues. I still have scars from when I attacked myself with a sharp object during the a meltdown. Today I freaked out at a large road crossing because there was too much information to take in. My support worker had to lead me across the roads. I have really messed up sensory systems.

I'm not sure.

I think my executive functioning problems might be the most disabling (e.g. forgetting/losing stuff, working memory problems, problems keeping track of time, difficulties regulating attention and inner states, information retrieval, task switching).

Sensory issues and language/communication problems are a very close second.


Thats basically how it is with me.

I find it exhausting to do ordinary, everyday activities that everyone has to do, like keeping the house clean, preparing a meal, talking to people, going to the grocery store. I can only get so many things done in a day.


The same for me too!

How people are with me, especially my folks.

People treat me like trash and sadly I can't figure a way to manifest any part of my life. Most people usually bully, manipulate me and place me on medications and yes the dosages are high.

I live a miserable existence.
