  1. I work for a youth centre. It was for a social event. Right now I’m in a paid work training program at said youth centre. The second phase of this program, I’ll go to a job placement in the community. Did you have a good day, Gear? It seems uneventful, which are the types of days I like, personally.
  2. I’m glad you got your bathroom fixed up, Gear. Your doggy sounds sweet, I love dogs 🐶 ❤️ Today was a lousy work day. Loud, live music during gathering lead to me covering my ears. Which lead to a coworker getting upset and calling me rude and disrespectful. Leading to another coworker telling her I’m not rude, just autistic. I left the room eventually, flapping and wringing my hands, because I uncovered my ears as to not be rude. This caused sensory overload. I then had a meltdown in another room, rocking and crying. Two coworkers came in to console me. That was the only positive.
  3. Tomorrow is the big day. First day of work 😺❤️

      wow, congratulations! you're going to do great!

  4. Thanks Gear. 😊 Your friend’s cat sounds like a typical kitty, but I know that can be a real PITA. Not much new here. Friday I went clothing shopping and helped my grandma get her new iPhone. Saturday I saw the Detective Pikachu movie with my friend Sam, then slept over at her house. Now we’re just about to have breakfast. It’s been a pretty good few days, tomorrow will be my first day of paid ‘work.’ I’m ready.
  5. Oh good, people are sharing. I’m glad to hear you got your new pens in the mail, Gearhead. Sounds exciting 😊 Thanks for participating, Cerberus. No worries if it isn’t daily, I’m just trying to get some people talking in this section of the forums. I hope you don’t get the sniffles and your cat is alright. Good news for me today, I got hired on for the paid training program I’ve been trying to get into. I was told about my poor eye contact and social skills, I did my best to work on them, and today I was taken aside and told that due to taking the direction and implementing it, and all of my growth, I would be offered a position in the paid training program. I’m so excited, one step closer to have a paid job after! 😃
  6. Hi all. I wanted to attempt to create a thread for autistic members to come in and chat, give updates on their day to day lives, etc. This section of the board isn’t very lively, which I find to be a shame. Perhaps we can change that. I’ll start. Today has been uneventful. Made some phone calls, fed some pets, did some chores. One incident of sensory overload. Have work tomorrow and an appointment after work.

  9. I can tell you that when I took antipsychotic medication, my glasses prescriptions changed a lot. I asked my optometrist, and was informed that sometimes medication can affect your eye sight. I don't believe that it can cause eye disease though. Sometimes blue light (what is in a phone screen or iPad screen) can make a person's eyes dry or tired as well, which affects their vision. Hopefully you get this sorted soon. All the best to you.

  13. Being autistic and a sexual assault survivor, I see a lot of different points of view. I've given the creepy stares, and I've gotten them. There's a point where people are held accountable for their actions no matter what, even in the case of autism. (This I would know, since being autistic did not get me out of a few wrong things I've done in my life.) I would hope that appropriate intervention is given these days, so that people with autism know at least enough boundaries to be able to stay out of trouble, and harm's way. I've been fortunate enough to have people looking out for me in my life, to teach what is appropriate and what isn't. Some days I do forget though. I think the biggest issue is when do people have to take the fall (responsibility, blame) for their actions, despite their disability. And I really do see it as it depends upon the severity and nature of the autism, and perhaps a conversation with the autistic individual and family members of such individual, should something like that happen, and giving them the right and benefit of being able to speak for themselves and defend themselves with an advocate present. (As a side note, odd or "creepy" looks are one thing, full on sexual assault is different, and spreading it over social media is never a kind thing to do to anyone, period. That's your personal business, and honestly, it may be best to keep it as such.) I know my opinion may be a little bit of an unpopular one, but it is just that, an opinion.
  14. I was given a diagnosis as a teenager. The only thing that accomplished was allowing me to have an educational assistant in school. I didn't have any other support. I lived in a residential treatment center at that time, for my Bipolar disorder and other strange behaviors. AKA I was too much to handle at home, so I was placed in res for observation and to find out what was really going on with me psychologically, as no doctor I'd seen since the age of 14 had been able to figure that out yet. My diagnosis seemed to be, and really still is, just purely "educational". That's at least how I see it. It did not gain me any services, support, etc. It was just knowledge for my family and I to have, so that we all could best deal with it in the ways we were capable of. Dealing with it to me just means being aware of it, dealing with it to family means telling me to not act in certain ways in public, or even at home, because it's annoying or upsetting to them. To me, diagnosis in my childhood meant nothing, other than everyone knowing what they were in for, for the rest of my life. Thank you Dr. H... Ugh. I do suppose though that diagnosis as an adult would have made my depression and feelings of being so isolated, strange, and "wrong" worse.
