The way you express yourself is very unclear. I've noticed it in all your posts I've read. Example: interesting fact - playing the sjw here can get you labeled a rat/narc in the homeless community. There's no way to tell what you mean by this because SJWs have nothing to do with ratting people out. ...

It would mean I wouldn't comb my hair hard or tangle very much. Or that my hair would be less heavier. Or if it's sticky or too hot I wouldn't have to tie it into a bun. Or that leaving it untied with the wind, along with how I move, it'll end up all over the place and potentially scare people at n...

So from what I'm gathering, no one on here uses abdominal massage to soothe cramps? Is it weird that I do that then?

I've never tried it. It does seem weird to me because I don't understand how massage would help with pain from an internal organ (uterus).

I understand that Alex might never get around to this. "Gender" is currently a mandatory field. I don't want it on my profile at all, but I can't unselect what I selected when I registered. So I'm suggesting that it be made not mandatory. Maybe there should be a "Sex" profile fie...

Does anyone have any tips on how to prepare mentally for the “yes or no” answer and what to when I’m super set on wanting a yes, but knowing I could get a no? (I don’t know if that’s worded well apologies!) Figure out why a 'no' would bother you so much. Figure out why you want that 'yes' so badly,...

So it seems to me, that even if you take just that single aspect of "autism", there could be dozens of different etiologies which explain why the person behaves that way. The diagnostic criteria for autism helps clinicians avoid confusion of different etiologies by not taking "just t...

Do you feel that autism is a catch-all diagnosis? No, not in general. However, I have heard of people trying to get kids diagnosed with autism just for access to certain therapies that health insurance would not otherwise cover. These kids didn't quite meet criteria for autism, but they had issues ...

You can cut it short or try natural hair care products. I used to make a hair gel by boiling flax seeds in water; it was light and not too sticky. But you might want something heavier to weigh down your curls. Just search online for natural hair gel, natural curly hair treatment, or whatever you are...

The best solution to cramps I've discovered is regular exercise (cardio). If I don't exercise regularly, my cramps are much more painful. With strenuous enough exercise (like swimming or cycling), I had no pain. I would exercise at least every other day for twenty to thirty minutes to get the effect...

I used PayPal for years but not recently. I don't want to use it any more. I hope you are talking about https://www.paypal.com/ There are some imitation Paypal sites I think, so it's important to type that exact address in (instead of relying on autocomplete) and make sure you see your browser's sec...

I guess that I am fortunate to not really want what neurotypicals have. I've never really felt bad about who I am or what I can or cannot do, neither before nor after I got diagnosed. That way of thinking is just not a part of my personality. I can't work and I do not care. I lost respect for the em...

Here there is a conversation, it's different. I don't mean to hurt anyone when I said I don't understand vlogging, there's nothing wrong with liking it, I just personally don't get listening to someone when there's no conversation. I wouldn't be interested in forums if you could only read post abou...

I never understood vlogging, what is interesting about strangers' personal issues ? Sure, you might learn about how they deal with their own autism, their daily lives and such, but why ? There is no conversation, just listening to someone talk to their webcam, I don't get it. The information can be...

I haven't typical autism symptoms like social phobia, deficits in theory of mind, narrow interests, problems with abstract thinking, stimming. I also have a very low level of emotional empathy, but cognitive empathy works very well. In opinion of my psychologist, I'm extrovert. None of those things...
