  1. Appreciate it, from all of you! First day of school went great!

  2. I have an adult / late ASC/D diagnosis. I am 46, but got the diagnosis 11 years ago this spring. Every diagnosis is different in terms of difficulty with various things, so I have bad executive dysfunction (maybe ADD)* and any sensory overload issues are related to touch instead of hearing (Hobbes might have forgotten more about autism than I know), but a kind of immaturity is there and I am very self-conscious about it (other people's maturity often makes me anxious), and I know it is unlikely to change. (edit, point being don't focus on someone's immaturity, but rather their not be

  3. Well, so far, the new dosages and new med is working. I don't have those dark episodes of depression, like I had a couple weeks ago. I am starting to feel back to normal, or what should be normal. I actually feel myself laughing more, too, which has to be a good sign. i also have been giving CBD hard candy a try, too. Just being able to share my experience here makes me feel better too, so thank you guys for bending an ear.

  7. I’ll third what they’ve said. Don’t be ashamed for asking for advice before doing the right thing, be glad that you did the right thing. Family entanglements are tough and even more when dealing with a parent. You’ve done nothing wrong. RV did something wrong, and it absolutely false that he didn’t know what he was doing, because he knows enough to hide it. If he was groping your wife openly in front of everyone, or tried to touch your son in a crowded place, you could argue he doesn’t know better. He does, but like any predator he knows how to hide it. I want to applaud you for not

  9. I went to the ER, on doctor recommendation, about three weeks or so into shut down because there was a lump in my sack. It had been a little uncomfortable for a day or two before then, but soon as I felt basically a third ball, I called and they said to go on. Went through basically the same as you: a lot of ball touching and an ultrasound. It turned out to be just a cyst that went away on its own, but I did get this incredible statement on my discharge papers. All time great.

  10. Now that I am working maybe I will come back to this thread to keep myself accountable... or at the very least prove to myself I am not wasting away. I am currently on TWO paying jobs. I mentioned in my last update that I had landed a pitch-- that is job one. If anyone is familiar with the website CryptTV, they are a repository of horror short films. They got a big influx of money from an investor and are taking some of their short form IP and giving them a glow up to become full on TV shows. I can't say which of their things I am working on, but they hired me to write a pilot episode and

  13. 5G makes sense, though. 5G. China has 5 letters, and G stands for Global elite. Its all right there. China and the global elite are conspiring to take down Trump by indiscriminately killing people all over the world, so he cant take down the Clintons and their vast pedophile ring.

  17. Ever since my cat, Stormy, died of cancer in July, I've been wanting to get a kitten. It feels empty here with only one cat, plus I think Elvira needs a companion, especially when I go away for a weekend at a friend's house. So, yesterday, I adopted this little girl from the Yavapai Humane Society. She is three months old, feisty, fearless, and opinionated. That was what attracted me to her at the shelter: she was YELLING louder than the other cats! And when I held her, she immediately began purring like a motorboat. I held another kitten, a beautiful calico, but the grey one kept hollering. S

  19. You shouldn't feel ashamed. None of us can know how we're going to react to a situation like this until it happens. And I think instinctively, we try to take the path of least resistance. It doesn't matter that your change of mind occurred after asking for help, it matters that it happened at all. Good for you, man.

  20. So I really, really want to thank everyone for this. This is exactly what I needed and I appreciate EVERYONE. It really helped me self-reflect. Everyday my job is to advocate for those who can't advocate for themselves and yet it was my own son whom I didn't fully advocate for when he needed me to the most. If it wasn't for this thread I wouldn't have realized this and I am ashamed and embarrassed. What I am even more ashamed about, and I didn't realize this until this thread, but knowing that this is unlikely to ever be prosecuted, I was afraid that this would give my mom and a fa

  22. Hey, everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you. Not only have you put up with me in being essentially my collective second therapist (or third now, technically), but the advice you've given me has helped me out in my personal life tremendously. I know that sometimes I have a hard time sensing someone's tone, or I think a piece of advice is an insult, and for that I am sorry. Honestly, this is the most civil and mature community I have ever belonged to. I used to hang around only in the Star Wars forum, but I've only recently started poking around e

  24. Well, it took over 6 months, but I finally took the first step! I signed up for 2 classes for the upcoming semester. Turns out my academic probation hold (which is pretty permanent thing on my record thanks to my fun-loving 20s) was lifted automatically by the college for COVID reasons. They granted an automatic lift to everyone on probation with a GPA over 2.0. Mine is apparently a 2.01. So go me! I'm opting to retake 2 classes that I'd signed up for in like 2003 but then stopped going to, earning an F. That way the new grades will replace the old grades bumping my GPA hopefully into non-pr

  26. Yeah, man, let's end the stigma. My daughter is currently seeing a psychologist for anxiety, my son has a psychiatrist appointment next week, and we just started 13 weeks of parent-child interaction therapy because my son's behavior is so out of control that we need a crash course on how to become a behavioral expert because normal parenting rules don't apply and he's too young for individual therapy. I do what I have to do to help them and I give zero shits if anyone has an issue with that. Investing now means not waiting until my daughter has a nervous breakdown or my son ends up in jail. I'

  27. The only thing I'm gonna comment on is the two therapist thing, "twice as many as a normal person." fuck that. See as many as you need. See one, see two, see fourteen thousand. There's no such thing as a normal person or a normal amount of therapy. Get that concept out of your head. Or tell your therapists about it lol. Seriously though therapy is therapy and there is no right or wrong amount.

  28. I am not proud to be an American. Every major civilization has had its atrocities, but the fact that we ignore, downplay, and outright pretend as of they never happened let alone refuse to acknowledge how they impact current society is sickening. I know this isn't exclusive to America, and other countries are far worse, but fuck...do we have to fuck over Native Americans every chance we get.

  32. I'll add, Zerimar, that being reflective is a great thing- trying to make sense of things in order to better ones self is an admirable thing. So kudos to you. But also don't try over think things, it can lead to dark places if you spend too much time in the internal upstairs. Let shit go and keep moving forward. Just not with 20 year olds, or co workers... But you already came to that conclusion. Also clients aren't a good idea either. In fact personal/professional should be kept well separate. fuck im glad I'm not trying to date people anymore.

  36. For years I have been trying to land a gig in the mountains. I love Denver, but it is way too crowded. Most people, like myself, moved here to do cool outdoors stuff. But now even outdoorsy stuff is packed. It is a 2+ hour traffic jam to go skiing and then the lift lines are crazy. I finally landed the job I have been looking for in Durango, Colorado. Awesome mountain town (with a population of 20,000 plus a college of 4000 it is practically a megacity in the mountains) with a great ski resort within 20 miles so I am pretty excited. With that said, I am NOT excited about act

  37. We have running water and power now. So we're good to stay here. Noah lost his bed and dressers. He also lost a few games and card games and a lot of clothes. Most of the clothes were getting to be too small anyway since he's grown so much this past year (tweens...ugh) and the pandemic keeps us from being able to shop and try things on like normal. If you guys would like to contribute to Noah's new furniture and mattress or new clothing funds, I'm running out of reasons to not accept help(I'm really not good at accepting help, y'all. Really.) Our insurance deductible is $500 and I

  41. They like to think themselves the underdog. White people, Christians, people who live in rural communities, love to think of themselves as oppressed, ignored, forgotten. It makes them feel very important and self righteous. It's why they gobbled up everything Trump said in 2015-16 and ever since.

Basically stuff that an attorney would do, but who wants to pay for that? I have an interview on Monday with a dental insurance start-up for positions not yet listed. One is related to a position that is listed, as a Member Success Representative, which sounds a lot like customer service and would be a step down for my career, but if the money is right, I’m willing to consider it. Especially since it’s not an entry level position. The other
