Very short. Haven't buzzed it in a couple months and it's almost time again. It used to be very long, but I've always had trouble with daily brushing so eventually it would get horribly knotted up and require great lengths to detangle it again. Finally I got annoyed enough about it to just buzz it a...

This is one of my favorite blogs by an autistic woman and it's pretty new so it doesn't take too long to read all the posts: https://autnot.wordpress.com

This is another that I've found to be helpful: https://musingsofanaspie.com/adult-diagnosis/

I'm faceblind and don't remember what anyone's face looks like once I'm not looking at it. It's the same with my own face too. I've been that way ever since I can remember and I didn't learn that it wasn't like that for everyone until ~4 years ago.

I'm not coping well at the moment, but my usual strategies are pretty similar to the ones already shared. I did too much productive stuff yesterday and am paying the price today. My 8yo wants to go somewhere today, but I cannot manage it and she's very upset. I'm hiding in my room. The other three a...

It's a pretty even split for me. Before I had children I would've said more male than female. For some reason the whole birthing/breastfeeding/caregiving thing evened it all out a good amount.

I also have an extremely difficult time lying - especially when caught off-guard - and most of the time people can easily tell that I'm lying. I have a much easier time with telling half truths and lying by omission, but those still require convincing myself that, yes, what I'm saying is TECHNICALLY...

I'm not sure whether or not mine did... on phones I still get asked for my parents whenever telemarketers call. It's an easy out though because then I can just say, very truthfully, "They aren't here." and hang up.

It's not so much censoring... it's more that I think women need to consider how helpful what they're saying will be to the pregnant woman they're talking to. I heard so many, "Birth is the MOST PAINFUL HORRIFIC AWFUL THING EVER and you're going to want an epidural at 2cm!! !!" stories that were just...

I've never heard the latter sort of story... but I'll take your word for it that those happen too and I agree that those wouldn't be helpful either.

I do that too! And I have issues with face recognition as well so I have a hard time keeping characters with similar hair styles straight. Old movies where all the men have the same haircut and dress the same are extremely difficult for me to watch.

Realistic stories of difficult births are not what I would consider "horror" stories, FWIW, so we might be dealing with a difference of definition. I don't think it should be on the pregnant woman to avoid birth stories. Not at all! I think it should be on the more experienced mothers to not sensati...

Also... 34 weeks is really early to get the GBS test. Usually women get it at 36 or 37 weeks along because it's less accurate the further the test is taken from the date of labor. You can be GBS positive at 34 (or even 37) weeks and be negative a couple weeks later when the baby is born.

Oh, I absolutely believe that women should be educated and given more information - and realistic information at that! That wasn't my point at all. My point was that hearing horror stories doesn't help women become educated and is a horrible pasttime for people to indulge in when with pregnant women...

Reading positive birth stories helped me a ton before I went into labor all three times. I refused to listen to all the negative stories when I was pregnant. I don't know why people think it's a great idea to share birth horror stories with pregnant women. I think it's rather sadistic to do somethin...

...yes, they're women. I don't see why people have a problem with that. If they consider themselves a woman, then they're a woman. Personally, I don't see the point of gender roles, and I wouldn't particularly care which one I was. But some people feel very strongly about which gender they are, and...

I don't know. I was fitted as a teenager (my older female relatives were insistent that I needed to get properly fitted) and generally just try on sizes close to what I was fitted as so... 34 or 36B or C (when I was nursing a baby) and then go with whatever is most comfortable. I don't wear bras wit...
