  1. Uncommitted Event Committee Members...

    Hi, i actually just want to rant. This stuff has been in my head for months. I tried to google if there's anybody else has ranted about the same problem, but i couldnt find it, only can find 'informational' stuff about this. Okay. I've been assigned as a committee member for a conference event. Previously, I've been assigned to other event committees as well, and i was not experienced at that time. At that time, everybody else in the committee were very great people, they know what they...
  2. He went to an interview! Yay!

    Okay, he couldn't sleep for two nights before the interview day. That sucks, we kinda argued because I will get tired too when he's insomniac. Like, I asked him many times about how about you wear a necktie; then he said no need and said I was nagging him. But when we reached the place, he said if in his country, he will wear a necktie. I said same here too. Then he said, that's the first time he heard about that. OMG! I was getting angry, since I already suggested to him to wear necktie...
  3. Gluten intolerance is in some cases an imaginary disease of wealth

    I have about a million allergies, some very serious. But I just have to go out and say it. Gluten intolerance is in some cases an imaginary disease of wealth! Out of the dozens of kids in our neighborhood, no one has gluten intolerance. Not only that, but they eat junk food and are just normal, energetic kids. But then you look at some of my daughter's friends whose dads are engineers for Nike or Intel, and all of a sudden about half of them are sensitive to gluten. My daughter once...
  4. He finally got somebody talk to him, but..

    Okay, I prayed this evening that I wish God gives my husband friends.. And when he went to the usual prayer hall after sunset, I noticed he doesn't come back yet.. usually he already home after 30-40 minutes. Then we will go to the usual stall to have our dinner (he complained he's already bored with the menu there, but doesn't want to try new place). I was worried if something bad happened to him, like accident. I cant call him since he doesn't bring his phone. Or, that he finally got...
  5. Being the Sole Decision-Maker is Unexpectedly Exhausting

    This post is saying what I am feeling:Men expect women to take all the decisions: What to wear, what to eat, why to buy - even where to live | Daily Mail Online Well, I'm not the dominant-type woman, I prefer to feel safe with someone reliable. And I think Aspies are like that too - except maybe it feels a bit different. In my culture, husbands usually the one who are being reliable about almost everything. Of course they discuss with their partners too. Like house to buy, car to purchase,...
  6. If you have cancer, this charity can help you

    They're called Cleaning for a Reason, and they operate in all 50 states. They send out a team of professional maids to clean your house once a month for 4 months. It is absolutely free of charge. I signed up and they were in my house within the week.
  7. Constructed by default & Posted 4 February 2020

    Celebrity Atomic Particles Created by treebranch1 I made this as a test of function of the site because nothing of my own that I put in the slots would run, even though there were no flaws in what I entered. One phrase in the first slot, a list in the second, and one phrase in the 3rd. Wdn't run. I cut the list down to 10 items. Wdn't run. I substituted one of the site's lists. Wdn't run. I entered 2 more of the site's lists, with a feeling of *this is stupid/pointless/meaningless/not...
  8. Could be worse.

    I am supposed to go to a radiation simulation for my cancer. They are going to tattoo me, and make a plaster cast of my body so that I can't move during the radiation. I abhor the very thought of all this, and I am in so much dread that I can't function. I promised myself I would never do radiation. I saw my pet scan on Tuesday and it showed the cancer is almost all gone, but it has in its wake, nearly eaten through my bone, leaving only a tiny twig to support my body. My doctor said that...
  9. I'm so thankful for the forum games

    I am here at the oncologist. Scared and nervous. Whenever the Dr leaves the room, i play forum games and it keeps my mind calm. Thank you Jesus for giving me all these people to keep me company
  10. Cancer, car crashes, and drive by's...

    Tell ya what, God sure has His hand on us! After an evening of swimming, I asked my daughter if she wanted to have some fun downtown. So yeah, we got off the bus, went into a restaurant and sat down. Not five minutes later, someone did a drive-by shooting and shot a bullet right through the window we were sitting near. Luckilly the bullet went up into the ceiling. So let's see, I got to skip chemo for almost the past 3 months, my daughter and I have both sliced our fingers open, we...
  11. Cancer

    I am so sick of chemo. I've been skipping it since early November. My whole family wants me to get back into it. I almost made my oncologist cry when I tearfully told her I didn't want to go to the treatment room earlier this week. The cancer pain is getting worse. I woke up several times last night in agony. But the chemo, it just makes me so weak, so sick, hurts all my organs, gives me temporary diabetes, makes my heartbeat irregular, hurt my liver and kidneys. What do I do?
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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.
  15. 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...
