I see two of you in this thread diagnosed with ASD level 2. How come you've gone under the radar for such a long time? I mean, both my boys are ASD level 2 and there is absolutely NO WAY they'd be able to mask or anything to keep those people who would need to deal with them from not understanding ...

If you haven't caught one of my recent posts that mentions that I was diagnosed with autism level 2 last week, that's what's prompting this barrage of new threads, including this one. Now that I've officially got a diagnosis, my life's been thrown into some sort of disarray. I've known I was on the ...

Amazingly and happily single.

I don't date, nor do I have any desire to.

Today at work a guy who puts in a lot of extra hours and works really hard came across a task that he didn't know about until the last minute but it needed to be done. He asked me how to do it and then said that he'll do it when he gets a chance. I am quite good at reading between the lines but fra...

Okay, so I often hear about how most strippers and porn actresses got into it either because they were desperate for the money or they were damaged from sexual abuse. But why doesn't anyone ever assume that about male performers? How did you conclude that no one ever assumes that about male perform...

I attended kindergarten in a small town and the teacher just loved on me from day one. Then we moved and I started first grade in a new school. Because of the move, I began classes two weeks late. Even if I hadn't been 'different', in the two weeks that I missed, the social hierarchy had already bee...

Wow! Thanks AngelL for this thread and everyone for the posts. This really speaks to me. Feels a bit awkward accepting thanks for posting in a desperate act of self-preservation, but I'll accept yours if you accept mine for weighing in! :) I realize that I spent ages desperately trying to fix mysel...

My opinion can certainly be attacked readily, I know; but it is just that - an opinion. I managed a strip club (The Showboat - Fairbanks, AK) many years ago. I realize it's not the same thing exactly, but we had girls working there who had come from the industry and some that later left the club to ...

Yeah you're right. I dissociate so I quickly switch when my emotions run high so maybe that's why I was a bit insensitive with that one.


No worries - I get it (I have dissociative identity disorder). Let me just set this here... ~hugs~ ...in the event you'll accept. :)

Turns out, I was wrong. Autism level 2, and not by a little bit - this isn't a borderline case. In fact, the psychologist explained, diagnostically I'm actually closer to level 1, than I am to level 3 (previously known as Aspergers). Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but I was under the impression (not...

If you don't like pumpkin pie then just don't eat it. Right - I haven't. You can sit there and pick your life apart for the next fifty years if you like but what a waste of time that would be. The examined life is not worth living? Might be a book in that. Anger about the authorities who missed you...

1. The squirrel that lives close and stops in to visit and get treats every day. He's started coming a few inches in the door when I leave it open to let me know he's here.
2. Mountain lion.
3. Alicorns!

Same Question

What is your favorite tree and why? Well, it's definitely NOT my family tree... As far as type goes, I'm a big fan of flowering trees like flowering dogwoods, almond blossoms, etc. However, while I know it wasn't the point of the question, my favorite tree is the one I visit on my daily walk in the...
