The problem is... I can't believe people just seemingly imply that people who break in will just stay in one place as if in a cage or something... they could have broken in with an intent to kill me... in which case what else can I do but defend and counterattack? I doubt any sort of police, even i...

Yes, that old psychological affront, where someone tells you "you're not OK (but I am)". Basically, lumping us in with other people who've got mental illness per se (like bipolar, schizophrenic, psychosis, disassociative personality disorder, or even PTSD). I got it a couple of times in t...

Do you regularly ask them to help you find the serious help?
Actually yes. I know the help I need and I constantly ask for it and constantly get told no.

Recognize it for what is.... an attack. I feel the best response would be: Thanks for saying such kind words; I wish the same kindness on you. OR what is your motivation for saying something so unkind? I don't see anything inherently unkind in that statement. I'd say it myself if I saw someone stru...

Yes, my ex-wife -- a gin-swilling, pill-popping, manic-depressive psycho-demon witch queen who divorced me so that she could marry her wealthy boyfriend.

I never acted on her advice.
Was she the same one who had Munchausen?

I have had many and I have one now. Only two of the many I have had have ever actually helped me. The others all had such egos that they actually harmed me.

Yes it's a thing. For sure it is!

I haven't had an episode in quite a while but I've had it from trauma as well as sensory burnout and BFRB.
What is BFRB?

I just read the article now. Yes, it's very real and it can be difficult sometimes. I have episodes of catatonia pretty frequently.

I can relate too. My best advice is to be like a shy person. Very quiet and soft and polite and gentle if you choose to speak. Be genuine without being very verbal. Let your heart show through without trying to talk too much.

Thank you! I will definitely be spreading the word locally as well.

Thank you everyone. The Sam's Club manager has told me that it would be really helpful if Autistic people would write letters of how these accommodations are helpful to them. She said that if she can get letters she can put them on Sam's Club FB page and hopefully that will help expand the neuro saf...
