Feeling lethargic for some reason and hoping it's not the onset of some sort of flu because I've made special plans for Christmas this year and I don't want to be ill.

Keep the feet you have and let the footprints look after themselves.

I don't know what lethargic means. I hope you stay well, healthy and fit over Christmas and in the future. :)

That is tempting, but I have been stepped on too much to not want to help when I can. What is trivial to me today is potentially life-saving to someone down on their luck, and I've been on the receiving end a bit too.

I hope everything works out well for you. You are a tallented person.

Went to pick up a refill on a monthly prescription and the shrink accidentally wrote for less.

Could be anything, really.
It's mostly just me and my misinterpretations of things, the costs and attempts to make a change out of myself while undergoing certain changes myself. Really, it could just be anything.


Must I remind myself, no matter the situation, a mere whisper in my mind came as I mindlessly walked to work:

"You're in the era of Peace. Be grateful and enjoy it."

Dunno where it came or that if I actually thought of it. But what I do know is that it doesn't impose this view, and take it as is. The message is entirely up to you or myself to interpret.

A family member and I got in an argument yesterday about plans we had made to spend time together.

He thought that I agreed to hang out with him on Friday, but I was really busy on Friday so I'm positive that I had told him I could do any day "other than Friday". I actually thought we had agreed to Thursday instead. So when Thursday had passed and he never called me to hang out (he was going to call me when he was free), I figured he was just busy or something and didn't worry about it. Truth be told, I would have been hurt by this if it were any other family member or friend, but he bails on maybe 60% of plans he makes these days. Reasons he cites include having trouble sleeping, work responsibilities, or even just not wanting to come sometimes. I heard through his wife that he slept in through his morning work meeting and so I assumed it was another one of those cases. For this reason I didn't feel the need to call him to ask why he canceled. I figured this would only stir up drama unnecessarily and so I just decided to hang out with my Mom and Dad instead.

Because of this miscommunication about the day though, on Friday he called me asking to hang out. I had to tell him that I couldn't because I was busy. Instead of being accommodating about the mix-up like I had the day before, he yelled at me and said that I "intentionally blew him off." My sister says he just gets upset around the holidays and that I shouldn't take his reaction to heart, but then she got into an argument with him about how he treated me too. Now it's Christmas Eve and everyone's mad at everyone (except for me, since I am more confused than mad), and I feel bad because my miscommunication seems to have been the catalyst for it all. :|

Finding out that my fear of unpredictable people (and avoidance of them) somehow makes me "just as intolerant as a homophobe," according to an NT friend.

NT standards stress me out every day. But today was "special."

For yesterday, sharing the breakroom at work during my break. My boss keeping on asking me if I need anything, when I told him that I'm fine. I don't want to be a broken record.

I have been worrying about finding the right person and I don't want a romantic relationship revolving around "lulz randumb" and nothing else, and it makes me feel bad that people think I deserve a romantic relationship based around solely that. On the friendship level, okay but there is also an attraction element that I want, and someone who I can have a deeper discussion with when it comes to a romantic relationship. There is a whole list of things that set a line between dating and friendship for me and qualities that I look for in a person in a romantic partner that differ from just a friend. I've been worrying about having little dating experience at this point in life.


My feelings exactly. I have absolutely no dating experience so have no idea where to even start, but I also worry about who the right person for me will be. I want to be with someone who I can both lol around with and be serious with, preferably another autistic person since I believe I would have a much harder time relating to an NT. I have one female autistic friend who I've known since middle school and is in a healthy relationship with her bf, who it can get a little awkward talking to at times since I don't want it to seem like I am helping her cheat or whatever (that would NEVER happen, our personalities are not compatible in that way). This difficulty finding my second half makes me stressed every day that I think about it.
