^all of this is very good advice. TRE - Yes! Somatic experiencing - Yes! Writing - Yes! The only thing I would add it to take it slow. Every time we access the deep recesses of trauma it releases a lot of emotional energy. If this is done too quickly it can be retraumatising. That can lead to very n...

If you're not planning on having kids or living too long, it might be just the place for autists. You wouldn't be bothered by other people much.

Hi. I'm an aspie with HDHD and C-PTSD. I've tried a lot of things to deal with the trauma. What I've realised is that the trauma started happening before I could speak and so therapies that involve thinking are not much use to me. I've found the body to be how I can access the past and slowly proces...

My working life was largely spent in a place and era where health and safety were not a thing yet. I have been asked to do dangerous things, and have just done dangerous things to get a job done. Ive seen some injuries over rhe years. Never been seriously injured myself, thankfully. I think in this ...

As mentioned above this is a battle that is unwinnable.

Krafties approach of bringing and labeling milk is probably the most stress free way through it. Just don't be surprised if someone uses your milk when you aren't watching if the other milk runs out.

^ Tx for the Rob Henderson reference. Very interesting! I agree with the above. We can adjust the workings to some degree but not change who we are. Following the medical model, that meds are the only way to deal with things, is a dangerous slope. There are many non medical interventions that can al...

It sounds like you need a serious rest. I think if you can have an honest conversation with your friend about it, everything will be fine. It is very useful to work on self awareness of your level of exhaustion. It is easy to drive oneself into a wall where everything falls apart. Sometimes I need t...

I know how you feel. I am the same. It is one of the things that gets in the way of making friends. I feel like i am imposing on people with my company. I think a big part of this is just my perspective and not always really true of what others are thinking. I can be dangerous to think too much abou...

When I say "When you stop learning you are dead" most NTs eyes glaze over. I have had one long obsession. But it's a complex field and I have looked at various aspects of it at different times. That has kept things new. It can be difficult to find new material when one has hammered on stud...

I was a little professor. Read early. Loved encyclopedias and maps etc. It didn't seem to help me much. Other kids didn't like it. Teachers soon realised I never turned in work on time. Parents were frustrated I couldn't seem to learn how to have goals.

Finding connection with people I have something in common with is where I find tribe. Skin colour has nothing do with it. I fit best amongst oddballs and weirdos. People who actually have something interesting about them. That's my tribe. And being very diverse we tend not to get too tribal (Like ne...
