  1. 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...
  2. 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,...
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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?
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
