  1. Merry Christmas, peers!
  2. I just found this shirt on the interweb. Yayness. Also, I bought the "The autism is strong with this one" shirt, and wore it yesterday to my GP appointment. My doc thought it was hilarious, as did the pharmacist. I also purchased one for my clone. I wore it with pride around the supermarket, along with my black baseball cap and aspie headphones.
  3. Cake. You make me laugh. Have your cake, with sprinkles on top.
  4. Hi, Aspie (amongst other things) here. I have a family friend who I have been observing for a few years now. Trying my hardest to keep my observations discreet, I don't have a lot of information. Here's what I have: - He started calling himself in the third person at age 12. - He had a religious experience (at roughly age 19), in which he felt (did not see) Jesus, and his love flooding through him. He is now a crusader. Immediately after this 'vision', he then went on to b
  5. I just realised that my mental brain read this as Autie-Of-The-Corn, lol.
  6. This is so funny, I want to cry. I have only met one other person who has see Children of the Corn. The T-Shirt is mine now. And one for my Clone.
  7. I find this absolutely hilarious. As a raging Aspie, with two young Aspie's, I have tried to bring them up with the belief that we are AWESOME, because we have superpowers. Also, the cliché reference to Star Wars is deliciously titillating (even though I personally think that Battlestar Galactica, the original, was far superior). I would wear this t-shirt. In fact, I now want one.
  8. Throw out the cork board, and buy a magnetic whiteboard.
  9. "Bath Salts" and "Upperdrugs" by Highly Suspect. So relatable (although I do not take illegal drugs, I have the equivalent in legal drugs). YouTube Music recently found this band for me. I am addicted. Posted here because everyone I know thinks I'm insane when I get excited and make them listen to my eclectic taste in music.
  10. My Clone (daughter) just sent it to me. I thought it was pertinent to this thread. She also sent me this, which is 100% accurate. She's 15.
  11. I had to go to my daughters Formal (lots of people noise movement). I was barely verbal, and one of my best friends was there, and later she asked what I had taken. My GP just told me I'm too complex and keep it for my Shrink. I am currently mid conversation with a man, and I have no idea if he's flirting or funny.
  12. I recently met someone, and after an hour or so, he asked what I was 'on', as in illegal drugs. I was quite taken aback, and had to admit that no, it's just my personality. I'm like this all the time. Which then left me to ruminate about what every single person I have ever met in my entire life thought of me.
  13. Just reflecting on how fortunate I am about coming across this site. Great people, heaps of information. Real information.
  14. This pretty much sums it up for me. It's nice that you can see the other side.
  15. Antecedent, first I have to ask, do you have any formal diagnosis at all? Without rules, there would be anarchy, right?? LOL. Impulsivity. I have got a lot better over the years (I'm 49) at controlling it. But it still pops up all the time. One time I was driving my 15yr old (AKA Clone) home from Pdoc, and someone in front of us cut someone else off (most likely a tourist that didn't know where they were going). This was very rude, and an assault to my beliefs, lol., so I YELLED "Let them go YOU FKN R$T&RD*D C*NT". I sat there fuming for a minute, then looked over at my daughter
  16. Antecedent, did we grow up in the same household?, lol. I had very nice, but strict parents, that would tell me to stop swinging my legs when I was sitting down, don't talk out of place, look people in the eye (omg) etc. I was going to quote parts of your first paragraph, then realised I was going to quote nearly the whole thing. Impulsivity and inattentiveness go together. Don't get me started on impulsivity. (actually, you can if you want to, just be prepared for a rant). I have grown a lot since my diagnosis, about 6 years ago. My Allistic kid keeps telling me to be quiet, and SSSHHHHHH, lo
  17. Sorry, couldn't help myself.
  18. Oh, Antecedent. What a shitshow. It's been quite a few years since my family and I got our diagnoses, so I have done a lot of research, and diagnose people at random (I don't usually tell them, because I found that people don't like that, lol ). That is insane that you can't get a diagnosis because of your age. We can here, but because I was diagnosed as an adult, the long acting stimulants are not covered by government assistance (Seriously???), so it's $60 a bottle or stay on the immediate release. This applies to some other drugs also. Don't get me started. Fortunately my children were diag
  19. When I was pregnant, and the tests said that I was fine, but the OBGYN said to take iron in the second trimester, I went from barely able to stand, to (overnight, one tablet) feeling great (well, sort of). I couldn't believe it. And it can't be placebo affect, because I had seen the test results, and had no preconceived ideas about it.
  20. You are not alone. I'm the 90th percentile on my Pdoc's scale. That's 30% worse that all the other people that qualify for stimulants (where I am at least). Before hormonal hell hit, I used to run around in circles until it was time to pick up the kids, then continue to run around. Peri-meopause has slowed me down, but not my head (I am a mixture of the two ADHD subtypes). It's SO EXHAUSTING. I also have Autism, so forays out into the world exacerbated the problem. Covid has been a dream for me. I have to keep reminding myself to add, "except for all the deaths, illness, loss of jobs etc". I j
  21. Cerberus. Wow.
  22. OH MY GOD, PEER GROUP!!!! I just saw this on TV. It's a show on Netflix about plastic surgery and cosmetic beauty trickery. A lady had a neck lift and her surgeon recommended this to use on the areas that are swollen to reduce the swelling. The show is called Skin Decision, and the pink thingy comes up in season 1, episode 7, at 29mins in. I swear to god it's the exact same thing.
  23. LOL. My thighs are huge, and my clone's thighs are huge, and she came out and had a rant about it the other day, and all I could say was sorry (genetics, I apologise a lot). You are very funny, Fluent In Silence.
