  1. We are okay

    Tonight we were in an accident. My daughter was checked out at the hospital, but everyone is okay. A truck ran a red light and plowed into us, hitting her door. My poor daughter had to get a CT scan and an Xray tonight. Has a little black eye, but she's doing great. They were threatening to put her in a neck brace for 2 weeks, and she was terrified all the kids would make fun of her. Dr said in the end she didn't need it. She was so happy! To make her feel better, at the hospital I...
  2. junk food and cancer

    I know that folk knowledge says to cut out all sugar if you have cancer. But I spend 23 hours a day in bed. It's maddening. One of the only pleasures I have in life right now is chocolate and bacon (not together). I eat massive veggies, don't fry my foods (except eggs for breakfast), and take over 20 supplements a day. Moderation right? Here are my supplements I took today: 7 essiac pills (sheep sorrel whole plant, slippery elm bark, burdock root, and Turkish rhubarb root) 7 red clover...
  3. 4 hours, 13 minutes daily.

    Some progress in limiting my iPad screen time. I do feel a difference. I’ve been working on my business & spending quality time recharging so I can work on my business.
  4. I tried stimming: Spinning rings

    When the general public (which is my floppy term for people who know about the existence of autism but not too much about what it means) thinks about stimming in autism, most will probably come up with rocking, or hand flapping and the like, maybe also audible stims if they have ever been on a long flight with an autistic individual that happens to partially stim vocally. I believe most who have not gotten to know autistic people more closely will not think of more subtle ways of stimming or...
  5. From snaggletooth to shiny

    I have a trick that will improve your dental health real quick. Before you brush your teeth, squirt the toothbrush with a few drops of hydrogen peroxide. Then Put the toothpaste on top. It will kill the germs that cause plaque, eat into any existing plaque, and whiten your teeth. I started doing it and I saw a difference within a week.
  6. Going to the Naturopath

    I am hoping that today's Doctor appointment will be another way out of this nightmare. I don't ever want another drop of toxic sludge injected into my chest. I don't want to lie still while inflicting myself with Hiroshima-style radiation burns. It keeps me up every night. I hardly sleep anymore. The side effects are worse than the cancer, because before, I was in extreme pain, but I got around town on the bus and was very self sufficient. Now, I can't even walk down the block without...
  7. Special Qualification Courses for ASD before Marriage is highly needed?

    Okay this may seem too radical to be posted here, but this is my blog so anyway. Aspie/autism is okay and such, but the problem appears in marriage. In a marriage, the ASD will live with the partner 24/7. So it's impossible to mask. And another thing is, the ASD subconsciously actually want a caregiver or a mom who will do everything for the ASD. Processing partner? You should hire somebody else. It's irrational to expect your marriage partner to be your mom 24/7, and also without any...
  8. In which I acted, subject to a mood, prompted by what I had seen

    Yesterday I saw this array of material. The multiple "prisma" lists irritated me. It is a listing of various color names. I had already seen the percentage generator yesterday. It is a listing of percentages. The phrase "girl eating food" made me think of "Eats shoots and leaves". With difference emphasis/punctuation, "girl eating food" could be something other than a description of a female ingesting nutritive items. I figured I could put together a 'food attacks girl' thing pretty...
  9. I just got the lifetime membership!

    I'm so happy I did. It was only $10, and now the site is ad free. I was having so much trouble with overstimulation from all the videos and ads to the point that it made this site not fun anymore. I'm so happy. It's like the silence of the forest at night, except for my eyes.
  10. Ricky Gervais Confronted Pedowood At The Golden Globe Awards Last Night

    So.... um, Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes last night, just confirmed a whole bunch of Qanon leaks. His monologue at the beginning of the show started with a big "I quit, and I don't care" statement. Next, through roundabout humor, he called them all perverts and pedophiles, accused them of being Jeffrey Epstein's friends and saying that Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself. He also said that Ronan Farrow (investigative journalist who put rapist Harvey Weinstein in prison) was coming...
  11. No more.

    My family will be heartbroken, and my daughter will wrongly think I'm giving up on her, but I've decided to quit chemo. I cannot do it anymore. It makes me so sick and weak. I fear it will kill me faster than any cancer. I want to at least try the natural stuff for one year and see how I progress. I'm only stage 1 or 2 so I'm willing to do that. I just can't wither away. I've only been on Chemo since August, and already I look 5-10 years older, I have heart, kidney, and liver problems...
  12. Despair. Or should I? Let's destroy the 1st of the 3-Language Barriers!!

    I've been net-searching research fellow/postdoc/scientist jobs in my small developing country in my husband specialization to no avail. This country doesn't have that many research institutes, let alone any in his field. Seriously, there's no research job in this country for post-phd except for lecturers and maybe only some postdoc. Furthermore, maybe those jobs need to be applied or 'created' ad-hoc-ly; means we need to meet some insider and ask for jobs. Problem is, we are not good...
  13. Seems Okay

    He picked me up at work today, eventhough he was having headache and gone home earlier. We watched a movie about the series he loves on his phone. Even though he said he cant make a move about finding job or contacting other people, he seems happy to watch the movie. Then he goes to daily prayer at a nearby hall as always. He bought me a fresh apple juice at a stall he always frequent. He bought food for himself because i am already full. He told me that there will be an eating gathering...
  14. Vicious (?) Cycle

    He cannot fall into a deep sleep for weeks now. Sleep for about 1 hour, then suddenly wakes up from midnite until 3,4 am. After that also, not falling into a deep sleep. So, the next morning he will be depressed and have headache, also bad mood. Cannot do anything. Maybe this is a vicious cycle. He cannot sleep maybe because of depression; about many things: no fulfilling job, no teammate, no friend, nobody to talk to, nowhere to go without being anxious because of stuttering and...
