    I'm a designer. I am currently teaching myself how to sew and I hope to start making and selling vests online. Which I'm really stoked about right now.

    I'm into yoga (mostly the more meditative types), Meditation and breath work. I'm pretty interested in paganism and hope to keep exploring that as well.

    I have a dog and a cat and I love working with animals.

    I love to write, and slowly but surely I am trying to get back into it.

  1. Yes, NTs are definitely more receptive when somebody makes a bad joke or tries to make a joke and fails entirely. I think the proper response is to pretend it was funny rather than getting all confused and going "that was stupid, why did you say that?" If I could "like" things on crazyboards, I would "like" this. I've never had an issue with sarcasm, but I am kind of hopeless with most innuendo. At least hopeless enough that I don't catch it in time for the whole comedic timing thing to work.
  2. "I could not relate to it at all and felt no sympathy for the characters" Ohhhh yeah. That's how I felt about the first six episodes of the first season. And to be entirely honest, I have NO clue why I kept watching, I think I was just really bored that day. But I'm glad I did because now it's one of my favorite shows. The SNL skit gets all the characters spot on, and I'm SUPER impressed with the voices, but I do find that Tina Fey continues to use a lot of foreign stereotypes which I don't find all that funny and rather a little heavy handed. Honestly I'd rather just watch girls because t
  3. Hey everyone, I have a question. So me and my boyfriend both have ADD and he recently started taking meds again after a while. He is from a different city originally and previously never bothered to actually get a new doctor. He went to a local clinic and asked to be put back on his meds until he could get in to see a psych doc. Doctor said yes, prescribed him dexedrine for a month. He ran out and went back to the clinic to get enough to last him to his appointment later this month. This time though, he got a different doctor that mostly just treated him like a drug seeker and kept referr

    mom issues

    Egads. My mom. Our relationship is super messed up and I've stopped contact for now. Inappropriate boundaries (eg, she took me to an abortion and asked me to be in the room, as an adult but still really not cool) she was a single mom and used to be my best friend but since I've become an adult things are just fucked. I think she does things to keep me dependent on her, she uses material goods and gifts to manipulate me later, she lies to me and about me to other family members, she has some really severe narcissistic/histrionic symptoms that she is either unaware of out in denial or whatever.
  5. Hey everyone, how do you feel post meltdown? And how long does it generally last? I had one last night for the first time in a long time and I'm feeling so drained today. I've been paying a lot more attention to my energy since getting back on meds and I was curious what you all find.
  6. Or the fact that aspergers was once only thought to be an issue for boys, and all the preliminary research was only done on boys. That was a long time ago but it takes a long time for information to actually filter down to clinical use and there is still a lot going against girls and women who don't classically present/seem to be functioning fine. Use the word SEEM on purpose because just because it doesn't look the same- doesn't mean it isn't happening. Or that there is misinformation being spread everywhere all over the place, even by the biggest (or should I say especially by the b
  7. I did read the post I just got a bit off topic. Er- rather off topic. And quite self involved. I've been away for a while and I was just excited to talk about this stuff , didn't mean to step on any toes.
  8. True, I totally believe that. (That diagnosis has gotten better for everyone, women included) But there are things that have been in the past, and are in some situations, not been recognized as proper autistic symptoms even though they frequently pop up in women. Honestly I shouldn't talk about any sort of assessment process, I've never had a proper one done. My apologies. I'll be trying again to access such services shortly. The only reason it got better for me personally was because I was completely convinced as a child that my apparent lack of empathy, fascinations, and weird social
  9. I hit opiates before I noticed "prescription painkillers". But I'm also definitely currently still addicted. Basically, sorry for fucking with the data.
  10. Hey Dragonfly, How are you doing after all this? I know it's been a while since you posted this but I'm reading it now and I want to check in. You made it longer than I have. It's been..... 3 days. Since I abused prescription painkillers. Something I cant actually admit to anyone outside the confines of the internet. I usually make it about a month willingly, then it would all depend on what I could get my hands on. I always said "just one more time" "why not?" and maybe I'll say it again. I'll probably say it again. I'm trying though. You are trying, and you can do it.
  11. For the OP-- TLDR: If you really think that you are on the spectrum, research up and pursue a diagnosis. If you are a woman, be prepared to have to try harder/come bearing info pertaining to girls on the spectrum. As always, we are not doctors and cannot diagnose you. Etc. Etc.
  12. Well I'm not selling it, I think it was Tony Attwood (totally not sure on that though, it was 2 years ago) but it certainly makes sense to me. If you think it's unlikely that you are on the spectrum, knowing a lot of autistic people and and a lot about the spectrum + being online and reading experiences from autistic people.... I'm inclined to believe that you aren't on the spectrum just like how you've said, which kiiinda echos my point. There's a lot of reasons to like and even relate to people on the spectrum, they are awesome afterall... I'm not a doctor by any means, and quite f
  13. Yesterday I started and finished "Not that kind of Girl" by Lena Dunham, the writer of the HBO show girls. She's had OCD since she was a child (can't comment on that, I don't have it) but I will say that it is REFRESHING AS HELL to see someone in the public eye admitting to struggling with mental illness and telling stories from the not so good days. The book is not, by any means, entirely about that, but it plays a big part. For me personally, just in the middle of a depression relapse, it gave levity to some shit that might not deserve it but definitely needs it. Laugh or cry someti
