Asperger's & Autism Forum
I want to ask people in this community, what interesting things do you like watching on Youtube? I often watch those 'phone scammers getting scammed' videos... I have also enjoyed videos that show people driving around the streets where they live in different cities I am interested in...
From the age of 7 I have taken fluxotine to help with my anxiety and at age 17 I still do as my anxiety is that bad. However I find that of people find about this they tut and say things like 'Is that safe' and 'doesn't it take away who you are'. I find even people like Doctors and support staff have this reaction.
Does anyone else find this?
It is the only condition where people go I think I'm a touch autistic. You would never say something like I think I have a touch of cerebral pausy. People also go on about all the celebrities with it and how it is only mild. I sometimes feel like parents want their kids to have it as an excuse to why they aren't as smart as they would like them to be. I don't know it could just be me.
We all know those members of a fandom. The ones who demonize beloved characters who, in canon, are wonderful people. This is actually having a toll on my personality. To the point I do not believe being a good person matters.
Because of these people, I resent Jim Gordon. Why? I see him as more beloved than Dumbledore.
I imagine walking up to people and telling them Martha Wayne deserved to die for being a 'horrible mother.' Because Moms who love their children (like Mrs. Molly Weasley) are not welcome.
Did I already talk about this?
I'm in this relationship with a wonderful man that I do love - we met just as I was leaving my husband of 25 yrs and my family were devastated as they didn't see it coming (I'm good at putting up with things then snap-that's it!)
My partner and I see each other at weekends when I stay over and we see each other once during the week.... he has training he goes to mons, thurs and sat morn- but he hadn't been to for two months (as he was away on holiday for a month with his brother and he had flu for a month) I encouraged him to go back because I know this routine is good for him physically and mentally. The last month has been a strain for me as I've been made redundant and I am the one supporting my children. He had ended his previous relationship about 24 months ago, but she wouldn't leave their holiday home- this was stressful for him as he loves it there, and so couldn't go over there. She has now left, cost him a lot to move her on... he wouldn't confront her just kept...
My psychiatrist said yesterday that if I don't inform the DVLA that I'm not currently driving due to my issues, he will. That's bad, right?
I thought I was doing the right thing in managing it myself. I'm dealing with impulsive thoughts, auditory hallucinations and poor concentration due to depression exacerbated by aspergers. I'm also on diazepam. So, *I* decided that I wasn't safe to be driving. And I intended to stay off of the roads until I felt better, although I've driven twice in the middle of the night just as a kind of exposure therapy.
Now I've been told that the DVLA might actually direct me to give up my licence. Shiiiiiiiit! The trouble is that the form I'm sending in doesn't really give much space for commentary by me.
Does anyone know if it will involve an assessment or further conversation before the DVLA make a decision?
Welp, I need help I guess, for years I've felt the good inside me has decreased day after day and now I can't stand to be around people. I feel very frustrated and cynic with the years.
As some of you know I'm an engineering student, it is said that the one I'm taking (electronic) is one of the hardest carrers in my country if not the hardest. I've been failing several courses because I tend to learn everything and well I feel a big, huge sense of responsability while I grow as professional, and something I find very frustrated because I keep failing while I listen to others saying they don't care what is what if the matter is to pass than to really learn, people who I listen talking about how wasted they got on weekends and not studying at all while I really want to learn. Even in such "closed/nerd" environment (my college only offers engineering programs) I often feel alone or weird. I have some friends but I consider them more like colleagues for work, not the kind of people...
This forum has been a gem. I've been with my husband for 7 years but married for a little over a year.
Our relationship right from the start was not typical. I was very flexible and went along with whatever he wanted because I enjoyed it and also I was getting to know him. That's my personality and it can be bad for others because it's easy for other people to think I like them and yet for me, I'm just subconsciously absorbing them and then making up my mind later. I have people who think are my friends or are closer to me than they actually are.
I say all that to say my personality was sort of dormant and this allowed my husband to flourish. When I started asserting myself esp when he would spend some time at my place we started having problems. And some of these I had already observed before as potential problems but I would let go giving benefit of doubt. At first I thought logic would win. Nope.
I went to being consciously submissive. Didn't help. Then i started putting...
I can't stand shoes, I can't stand my feet feeling hot, ugh, I love socks, all kinds of socks... I do love heels, the bigger the better and especially wedges in the summer.
But whenever I'm wearing gym shoes, sneakers, I have to take them off at any chance I get. I only wear skater shoes for this purpose, easy to slide in and out of and never having to tie.
Anytime I'm sitting the shoes come off, restaurants, movies (which i cant stand but thats a different topic) people's houses, class, school, work (well at my current work I leave them on most of the time because they're big awesome platform heels and I love them) but at other jobs if I could I was out of them.
I just think it's kind of funny that everyone else never takes off their shoes, even when I had people crash me I've noticed a few times they were sleeping in gym shoes! O_O wtf!
I also can't wear flip flops unless just in my house, do people not notice how nasty and black their feet get when they're wearing...
