Okay, as a man who currently does not have a sexual partner . . . If I wake up relaxed, I will sometimes masturbate, think, masturbate, think, etc, etc, multiple cycles. And sometimes I feel I’m thinking very clearly. For example, it helps me writing. And it’s usually better if I don’t come. But if ...

I kind of think probiotics for gut bacteria may be a wave of the future.

in a very self-actualizing way! :D

To be cautious I decided to ask my PCP to submit a request for a referral. My bride had the same PCP and already had an appointment for other things so my bride relayed that I wanted an Adult Autism Assessment and we wanted her to put a request in to the insurance company. I was not there at the ti...

. . other kids in middle school were right when they told me I was autistic, and I was too when I agreed with them thinking bullying would stop. Obviously they couldn’t know, it was just an insult like the R-word, but they sure as hell noticed something was different. . Kids in middle school can be...

Welcome to WP! No matter your diagnosis status, I hope you find WP a nice place to visit. This is important because many middle-aged persons and older — such as myself! :D — are going to be self-diagnosed. And if you don’t mind, how hard was getting your insurance to cover the diagnosis process and...

Pres. Biden complimented the Afghan special forces as brave and dedicated soldiers. But then he said regarding the regular Afghan army, if they’re not going to fight for their country, we’re not going to do it for them. True but unfair, Because if the soldiers at the front break and run, that someti...

Two ideas: 1) H&R Block sells tax classes every Sept. for about $100. They have jobs for about 5 weeks from late Dec. to early Feb. No guarantee for the job, but highly likely. They really need people for this beginning-of-the-season rush. It’s a chaotic work environment, but I always felt my cl...

. . . I've done nothing but been friendly to my coworker and even give her rides home if we close. I overhear anything like that again that'll stop too And I think that's a good rhythm. We don't need to be so on-guard that we respond to something the very first time it happens. Heck, as persons on ...

. . . Though I sensed that she seemed like a mean person, the ride up was pleasant and we appeared to get along. . . I think you handled this well. Yes, pay attention to that feeling but also the possibility that you might be wrong. Meaning, get to know her step by step. Instead, it turns out that ...

I don't think parents really know how to help, especially if they're NT. Socialization wasn't as hard for them when they were growing up, less chance of losing, so they took much of it for granted. In fact, some can't even imagine just how much there is to lose because they never fell that low in t...

I'm confused, sorry. I don't understand your post. What is a high stakes game, and what advice was unhelpful? Please understand, I'm now 58 years old, a generation older than many parents. I mean, school is brutal. Kids do mean things. They're ingenious at doing mean things. Perhaps what even hurts...

For me, it was around 4th grade (age 10), and you figure out that this is a really high stakes game, and you can be excluded for seemingly the smallest of reasons. And my mom’s advice just wasn’t realistic. I’m sorry, but it wasn’t. One thing that helped was that both my boy scout troop and my judo ...

I was beaten by my own father before I could even walk. I was subjected to ritual mutilation without my consent. I was raped multiple times by multiple individuals. I was psychologically abused by me ex-fiancé. And then, simply because of my gender, it was assumed that I must have been the abuser. ...

She might come back to your through one of these friends.

Or —

Give it at least 6 weeks. Then ask one of these mutual friends to extend a low-key invite to a usual type of event.
