The next time you call, you might say that you are trying to help your young niece to use her phone and would like to be able to help her. you might ask them if they have a way to explain it to someone you and could they tell you so you might be able to approach your niece that way. Then the inform...

AngelL, WOW! If I'm understanding this, your medical situation improved greatly--that is WONDERFUL! I know there are still issues but it sounds like great progress.


Indeed. And yes, you understood correctly. Thanks for your joy in hearing it. :)

So, someone just responded on a thread that I started and directed me to another thread that he thought might contain something useful for me. He was right, there were useful things on that thread - but there was also something else that edged up my anxiety a bit. There were constant reminders of a ...

Yes! I've always built forts and hiding spaces. I'm writing this from my pillow fort. Would you like to have the inside of your home repainted? If so, what colour(s)? Different rooms would have different colours for me. The bedroom would be painted pink, yellow, purple and maybe some light blue acc...

Sharon, I deleted everything above your question - not because I wasn't interested in it; quite the opposite, and I'd like to thank you for sharing so much of yourself. I just wanted to isolate your question... AngelL, how's your health now? A sort of stability or frequent crisis? I hope you are suf...

I see two of you in this thread diagnosed with ASD level 2. How come you've gone under the radar for such a long time? I mean, both my boys are ASD level 2 and there is absolutely NO WAY they'd be able to mask or anything to keep those people who would need to deal with them from not understanding ...

If you haven't caught one of my recent posts that mentions that I was diagnosed with autism level 2 last week, that's what's prompting this barrage of new threads, including this one. Now that I've officially got a diagnosis, my life's been thrown into some sort of disarray. I've known I was on the ...

Amazingly and happily single.

I don't date, nor do I have any desire to.

Today at work a guy who puts in a lot of extra hours and works really hard came across a task that he didn't know about until the last minute but it needed to be done. He asked me how to do it and then said that he'll do it when he gets a chance. I am quite good at reading between the lines but fra...

Okay, so I often hear about how most strippers and porn actresses got into it either because they were desperate for the money or they were damaged from sexual abuse. But why doesn't anyone ever assume that about male performers? How did you conclude that no one ever assumes that about male perform...

I attended kindergarten in a small town and the teacher just loved on me from day one. Then we moved and I started first grade in a new school. Because of the move, I began classes two weeks late. Even if I hadn't been 'different', in the two weeks that I missed, the social hierarchy had already bee...

Wow! Thanks AngelL for this thread and everyone for the posts. This really speaks to me. Feels a bit awkward accepting thanks for posting in a desperate act of self-preservation, but I'll accept yours if you accept mine for weighing in! :) I realize that I spent ages desperately trying to fix mysel...

My opinion can certainly be attacked readily, I know; but it is just that - an opinion. I managed a strip club (The Showboat - Fairbanks, AK) many years ago. I realize it's not the same thing exactly, but we had girls working there who had come from the industry and some that later left the club to ...

Yeah you're right. I dissociate so I quickly switch when my emotions run high so maybe that's why I was a bit insensitive with that one.


No worries - I get it (I have dissociative identity disorder). Let me just set this here... ~hugs~ ...in the event you'll accept. :)
