regardless of cause or motivation nobody deserves to die like that. If she was "in the wrong place" does that mean she deserved that? No matter where or what time of day, nobody deserves to be murdered.

as a small infant in my crib woke up screaming, I had been dreaming something had hold of me and was dragging me away, turns out I had grasped my own ear and was pulling on it as hard as I could as I dreamed. I remember being amazed and looking at my hand, flexing the fingers open and closed. This w...

life experience can help give us insights and we can learn to cope and adapt as we grow older. I think the neurological setup we were given at birth does not change but we learn how to use new tools /ways to do things and understand many things better as we age.

people do "assume" things about not just autism but many other things as well. Lots of stereotyping, classifying, labeling goes on in the world. I am old and have learned over that time not to pay attention to it. Most of us(humans) don't fit the labels other people try to give us over alm...

the future is always scary, cut yourself some slack and do your best self care as you sort it out. Knowing our diagnosis gives us new ways to look at just about everything in our lives and helps us see where we can make adjustments to make things every day "go better" As you sort it out, t...

From a very early age I was told I was deliberately doing wrong things in order to aggravate, incite, annoy, etc. I never understood what family members were talking about. You did that deliberately, you hurt my feelings, you made me mad (everything in the family dynamic was my fault) see scapegoati...
