Aspergers & Autism
I really want nothing more but to help others during this challenging period in history. ESPECIALLY other disabled folks, because I know I'm not alone in my struggles right now. Or my feelings (like everyone has forgotten we exist or matter). I am making this resource list because I know some...
I'm having a particularly difficult day today. I'm sorry I keep coming and going from these forums... I just have been going through these phases lately where I'm not social at all, anywhere, don't even crack open my laptop. And then sometimes I hyperfocus on a particular group or something...

Aspergers & Autism
Just dropping in to share this link real quick - I think it's the only list I've gone down where I could agree with the author on EVERY point she hit, so I *think* this may indicate it's a pretty good generalized list of traits, even though I don't think she intended it to be as much of a...

Day to Day Life
I've been really depressed and emotional lately, due to a multitude of factors. It's hard to define them all here, but I'll try: - working on CPTSD recovery, which involves a lot of wading around in traumatic memories - getting constantly triggered on accident by my boyfriend - getting sensory...

Day to Day Life
And... I had another meltdown yesterday. Sigh. I'm obviously still recovering from the trauma. At first, I couldn't understand why I was falling apart when everything was okay. For some reason, my brain wants to keep screaming everything is NOT okay and that I need to run away. It keeps picking...

The above topic in my title has been literally driving me bonkers lately. I cannot stand being able to see the duality of the universe, and I equally can't stand seeing how the concrete thinking of humans tends to be their greatest downfall. It is also in our nature to demand answers, and it...

I have a mantra: "Any progress is better than no progress." Another one is: "If you don't try it, there's a 0 chance of success. If you do try it, there's a 50% chance of success." Bravery isn't doing things without fear. Bravery is stepping forward despite your fear. "Let go and let God" is...

If You Have a Rainforest Mind, You’ve Got Hopepunk This brought tears to my eyes. About two, maybe three years ago, there was a movie I went to see in the theater… Zootopia was the name… and the entire movie was about social justice. Somewhere in the middle of the film, it suddenly bopped me on...
Now that I'm out of that shelter, I am scrambling like crazy to get my business back into full swing again, so I don't have to go back into ANOTHER shelter. I can't seem to be very productive in a herded community living environment. Right now, I am QUITE happy in a friendly, cheap hotel...

Melissa Joan Hart told her 6-year-old son that only people who believe in Jesus are 'good' — and people are calling her out for 'casual anti-Semitism' We don't know if people who say they believe in Jesus are good people, either. Religion is not a get out of jail free card to the use of...

Shelter drama is a special type of drama. Think about ego issues combined with paranoia combined with a healthy dose of narcissism and a complete and utter lack of manners... along with a loud voice. That's a lot of shelter women. Many of them are abusers themselves, that left just to keep...
