I don't have "yeast overgrowth"---but I do experience "low energy" and "brain fog" at times, though never to a severe extent.

AI, as it stands now (represented by AI-type entities that "answer" your questions on the phone or online), is wholly inadequate, and nowhere near an actual person.

I often get frustrated by their "stupidity."

It would be nice if we were able to get near an actual Black Hole.

ASD is a neurological condition. Whether it's actually a "disorder" depends on the person.

Personally, my ASD is somewhat of a disorder, but also somewhat of a mere "difference."

I did say I wouldn't have wanted to test my hypothesis :wink:

But I do get your point.

It's not that bad. Really, it isn't! Some very famous and respected people (e.g., Jim Henson) believe in "humanizing" dolls and puppets and all that. I used to talk to my Santa Claus doll. Then, I realized that the doll didn't respond to me, and I could never be a ventriloquist like Jim He...

I'm not sure about this: But there are times when I feel like I was a "mistake." My mother, usually, was hypercritical with me, and didn't seem "proud" of me (unless she was, and she just wanted to "toughen me up"). My father didn't have much expectations. He might have...

Thank you. I have the affliction of absentmindedness, too. I absolutely agree that children, often, are very resilient beings who frequently recover fast from physical and emotional trauma. But, still, I wouldn’t have wanted my failings to force a child to test the above hypothesis. You’ve done well...

Semantically, a “cancerous person” bears a worse connotation than “a person with cancer.”

I am under the impression that a “autistic person” and “a person with autism”carry the same connotation to most people.

I am of the opinion that the thread on slavery….shows that the vast majority feel that being an apologist for slavery is ridiculous.

I agree with the locking of the thread, though.

There are times when I think I would have been a decent father, despite my misgivings. I would have made mistakes, and I probably would have learned from them. I hope, though, that the mistakes I would have made wouldn’t have hurt the child at all (no, I certainly wouldn’t have physically abused the...

I probably would have been irresponsible had I been a parent.

I sort of regret not having kids….but I feel it might have been for the best.

I “should” be a grandpa. I’m 62 years old.

If you have a social worker, I would talk to him/her.

Sorry you’re going through this.
