  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

  7. 5 hours, 3 minutes daily

    I need to try harder to limit my iPad screen time. I want to keep a food journal too. I am very busy. Some of my screen time is listening to music online that helps with concentration, so it’s not all wasted time. If I’m to be spending that time online anyway, I’d rather be working on businesses or recharging so I am able to work on businesses.
  8. Sigh.

    I was kinda in bad mood this afternoon, because I walked so much in the main area of this uni this morning, tending to several matters inefficiently. Then my husband called. Saying something I dont understand about what he doesn't like about the pair of glasses he just fetched this afternoon, and asking me to go with him to the glasses stall located in the uni's main area, ASAP. In my heart, I mumbled, "...sigh. Why don't he settled that when fetching the glasses. Now I need to go again? In...
  9. Trading Christmas for progress

    Not to be dramatic or anything but tomorrow is Christmas Eve (at least for the majority of people in the country I live in and traditionally my family). Christmas used to be a huge thing for me. Granted, I'm in my twenties so my childhood is not as far away as it is for other people. And for most kids whose families celebrate Christmas, it's a huge thing. I believed in the mythical being that brings the presents in our culture for a long time. Source: tenor.com Growing up I had always been...
  10. Emperor Palpatine

    Dude that machine Palpatine was hooked up to looked like my chemo machine. [deleted] chemo. I am so sick and tired of being pumped full of chemicals to the point where I can't even walk or cook for myself. Seeing that crap on Palpatine made me disgusted with cancer therapy.
  11. The Island

    Okay, meant to do this earlier, forgot. But anyway, it's time I talk about the island a bit, as I've gotten numerous questions about it. But first, let me grace you with this amazing picture: This fluffy ball of absolute perfection is my dog, Cooper. I often call him Fuzzball. Here he is, in his first time encountering the ocean. I dont have pictures of it, but we were at a spot just off the causeway here. There are certain areas on the island that simply dont have waves at all most of...
  12. How to Make a Place of Belonging for an Aspie, If He's Not Interested?

    That's hard! Without the aspie's cooperation, or if he's not interested in anything that the society there has, what to do?? When I asked him, he said to me, "Make one." Who's the one who need to MAKE that place of belonging for him? Is it me? How is that possible without his cooperation? The restricted interest of an aspie is so restricted, that even similar or neighbouring field of interest doesn't count. Also, it depends on where you live/work. In his country, the research fields are...
  13. Childhood favorites are stim toys today

    During my 'research' into autism, I was recently checking out #stimtoys on Instagram because that is exactly the platform on which serious research on autism should start. I was scrolling through the tag when I came across the account of a shop that seemed to be specialized in types of objects labeled as 'stim toys.' What I found was an entirely new world for me. Except, it was not really. For example, the shop featured sand animals which I used to love for their unique texture and the...
  14. I’ve gotten lazy.

    I’m not writing in my dream diary upon waking, but waiting till after coffee, & consequently missing a lot. My motivation has been lacking in many but not all areas of my existence lately. I wish I could have a coffee pot by my bed.
  15. 5 hours, 11 minutes daily

    Looking back, I find it hard to believe I was once able to keep my iPad screen time under 2.5 hours daily for one whole week. That’s my personal best & what I aspire to from thence forward. Willing is not enough though: I must do.
