  1. Nothing is Better Than a Honey Pot Ant

    The anonymity of this website will stay. The anonymity of this website will continue to be retained. The anonymity of the website will never go away. x5 This topic need no words. Words will never do the glorious (how dare I try to make a descriptor.) honey pot ants justice. Ahhhh!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!! They look like little tree ornaments, no way better.

  4. Art/ creativity

    Hello all, as a child my family showed little interest in art, dance/theatre and music. I can't recall the radio or records (hey i'm old!) being a focus within my family unit, no dancing, pictures on the wall, trips that were culturally based or encouragement for myself or siblings in these areas. As a 'grown up' (still working on that') i always enjoyed exploring and wearing clothes from different decades the 1950's onward holding most of my interest. When i was in my late 30's a man i...

  7. Unitasking

    First of all, thank you autismforums.com for existing and for allowing me the ability to delete my other blogs. Not that there was anything wrong with my other blogs, but I want to focus on one thing right now, which is decluttering my meager space. I have one bureau, one cabinet, most of a desk, & part of a closet for my belongings. I want to check in on this goal monthly to assess my progress or lack thereof. First step: I wrote a master list of 6 categories to declutter. Second step: I...
  8. Celebrities

    Have you stood in the check out lines at the supermarkets lately and noticed the number of headlines that are highlighting famous people that are claiming to be on the spectrum? Have you noticed in articles about people on the spectrum how the author uses examples of the high achieving celebrities? Dan Akroyd sound familiar? How about Steve Jobs? For the NT reading these articles, they are getting the impression that people with Asperger's specifically, must be geniuses. Hmm, but what...
  9. Addressing a gap

    I recently switched careers from insurance (8 years) to becoming a hair stylist. Growing up people always turned to me for this, and I knew this is something I should persue because of my naturally artistic and giving nature. is the one of the top things that i could always do for free and not in it for the money. The face to face social communication part is really challenging and I'm finding a lot of blogs online from the asd community about the horrors of getting a haircut and services...
  10. In the new wave nineteen-eighties, it might have well been the pioneer days for me.

    Although I was born in 1980, I had a very rural childhood. The propane man would come every 3 months and if we ran out before then, we couldn't cook at all. If I climbed on top of the propane tank and pretended it was a horse, I would get the beating of my life from any adult present. Same went if I pounded it with my hands to hear the cool liquidy echo. We pumped all our own water into a giant tank. We had to continually pump during droughts, because if the well ran dry, we would be out of...

  15. Analyzing my first Corona meltdown

    Yesterday, it's been approximately five and a half months since my last meltdown. Today, it's been zero days since my last meltdown. Several factors have piled up that eventually caused it - and I am a tad bit ashamed to admit that all of them stem from the current global situation. Since I started intensively researching autism, I have come to understand myself significantly better, to the point where I learned to identify, and in consequence, avoid situations or circumstances that could...
