I'm mostly braless. At least it's trendy now. It's the underwear that I have more problem with. I can only stand pure cotton granny panties that are smoothly finished with no "support" at all. Anything slightly sexy is just uncomfortable. Sometimes even the granny panties have to be worn i...

I need to give myself plenty of time for sleep. I need to allow 10 - 11 hours in bed to get 8 hours of sleep. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do that's useful between sleeps so a couple hours are wasted everyday. I've learned to accept it as relaxing self time and not to stress about it.

There's nothing wrong with that. We don't live in Victorian time any more. I have quite a few family members who show all their emotions. As long as you're not angry and picking fights with people all the time I'm sure other people don't mind either.

I managed a few trips on my own. No trouble. I wasn't even bored as I love talking to strangers. It's amazing what kind of people you can meet when you travel. Haven't tried a country that doesn't speak one of my languages yet.

We like to go to a hot springs resort. Everybody loves swimming and it feels relaxing. Never hosted a big party. We usually like museums, too.

Never. I'm extremely gentle and careful with everything. I'm averse to fixing broken things or cleaning up mess, so I try to never create the problem. People say I have the power of preservation. Things around me always last forever. :D Still holding the 50-year record of never having dropped a dish...

From what I observed most people aren't able to understand complex stuff. That's why there are specialists and scientists, right? That's totally fine. People can't be good at everything and understand everything. Most have jobs and families and community responsibilities. There's just no time even i...

It's common but not a defining characteristic of autism. Almost all introverts are quiet and they are about half of the population. :)

I have a huge Squishmallow. Does that count?

Other than that, just my family members. I hug and sniff them everyday and play with their hair. :D Human contact has always been important to me.

Tight fitting clothes bother me. Like bras, underwear, leggings or tights. Socks are OK. I'm very grateful for the loose fitting fashion trend. I did not buy a pair of jeans for over a decade because of the low rise trend, then the skinny jeans trend, then the torn ripped trend. I got by just fine w...

I've always kept long nails. Not too freaky, about 1/4" long in the "almond" shape. It's not a beauty thing and I never paint them. I just like having a bit of sharp pointy extra length on my fingertips. :D Plus they're very strong and work as multi-tools. I actually don't know how pe...

How about "deity"? :D I think alien is a cool word unless the way you said it indicate you hated it. I learned a lot from CBT and breaking the habits of negative thoughts. I think it works for anxiety very well. Your therapist might not be a good one, but it doesn't mean CBT wouldn't work.

I'm sorry that happened to you. It seems kinda silly. Would any shooter told their teacher about their plans? :D It's hard to be different. Still I don't believe most kids even the most oppressed would want to attack others randomly. And I hope that girl wasn't expelled just for carrying a knife. Un...

Never! In any situation I always fought to get the best spot in a room. Usually the one that gets the fullest view of the area. Surprisingly people usually let me have the best seat. They don't mind sitting with their backs to the open door and facing the wall. :D

Well. PE was the only class I couldn't get A and I've always put a lot of extra effort in. Everybody could tell I was lean and fit, but I failed at every sport. I never learned to ride a bicycle either. The one time I went roller skating was awful. My balance is rather poor. The only thing I was goo...

I know a few people who use "The Envelope System". You just take some cash out every month and stuff them into different envelopes, for gas, groceries, entertainment...etc. If you run out early then you don't spend any more. I know this might seem a bit outdated with all the online banking...
