I have toe walked my entire life. I'm only 20 and so far I don't think it has messed up my feet that much, but they are kind of "flat" and I do get aching pain in them sometimes. I've tried to train myself to walk properly, which has helped a bit. I think toe walking is fine as one skill ...

I remember my little sister toe walking. She has always had a weird gait. Is she autistic? Good question. We are estranged. In my unofficial opinion, my father and all of my sibs and my two children are either autistic or have BAP. I’m somewhat distant from my younger sister, too. Although we get a...

Bottom of the foot, right?

But sometimes also results in ankle tightness in the morning, has that been your experience?

. . . The memory palace helps both - you create pictures of things you can put in a "place" (which might be the house you grew up in or a museum you love to visit) in your mind - these things are associated with things you want to remember - and place them on locations (loci) in the palac...

I remember being around age 10 and seeing my Mom toe walk in the morning. Even at the time, I understood it as part of waking up on a cold morning, and wanting less contact with a world whose sensations can at times be overwhelming. Years later, I realize my Mom is on the autism spectrum, and so am ...

https://www.bbc.com/news/health-56435428 Around a third (180) were still in place in December. So, these very inappropriate DNAR directions, meaning, Do Not Attempt Resuscitation, were mainly at the beginning of the Pandemic. But 180 of them were as late of December, and some of them probably later....

. . . a room full of high school students are shown 50 random pictures (slide projector king of thing). Then they are shown 50 pairs of photographs: in each case one is a picture they have seen before and one is a picture they have not seen before. In nearly every case they can immediately spot whi...

Are you me? These kinds of things happens to me all the time. I've learned to have a talk with the people I feel I've offended or something afterwards, and it mostly turns out ok in the end. However, lately I've gotten the feeling that I overdo it, so that I end up appearing weird for always trying...

Hi, I know your cat Sam is uniquely himself (or herself if the name’s short for Samantha) :D

All the same, here’s this philosophy person saying we humans can learn a lot from cats:

One thing which has helped me is something I borrowed from zen meditation and whole the zen approach:

If I can let myself wind and meander to a place where it’s okay to do a health precaution and also okay not to do it, that’s actually a pretty good place to be. :D

It’s similar with American-style tackle football! :jester:

I’m going to guess that some of the complaining is finding your tribe and maybe connecting. But I’m with you, a little of that goes a long way and then it’s just not fun — like at all!

There are a lot of issues with the way I was assessed that time, so now I don't really pay attention to the stuff she told me. She acted like I was creepy for getting along with kids a bit younger than me, which now confuses me because she was supposed to work with kids who have developmental issue...

And between having a bubbly personality and being a first-rate as* hole, there is a wide WIDE middle ground. I think if I tried to fake bubbly, it would come across as fake, weird, too much, etc. One thing I have tried to work on, just like a veteran athlete, how good is my B game? For example, can ...
