I haven't been on the forum in a month, wow! Pride month wasn't as fulfilling as I thought it would, because some plans to do pride related things like parades fell through. School is out, too. I don't know what to do with all this time I have. Needless to say, my sleep schedule has gotten very...
For some reason, it's only just occurred to me to look up social anxiety. After hearing about the comparisons, the minimization, all of that, I actually looked up what it was. The scary and comforting thing is, is that I relate to that a lot. Who knew there was an actual name for the fear I feel...
Cool news, I saw a musical last night! I'd been following it for a bit, and I finally got to see it on Broadway!! I had a really great time, especially clapping and stimming in between songs! It was a bit loud though, and that contributed to the problem later. See, we got home around 3 AM, and I...
I've decided that I'll ask the school's therapist about ASD and such. But I had a question. Has anyone else ever experienced a thing where if something feels wrong, like dirty or unright, they shudder and have to let go if it immediately? I've experienced this while in Piano class, touching the...
I don't believe my current therapist is working out for me. I'm supposed to trust him, but I don't. I haven't trusted the previous one either. My only question is, how long will it take, and what will it take for me to trust them? Trust seems to be an issue with me, even with ordinary stuff like...
So, I went to the dentist today after a while. Being in the chair reminded me of an earlier time I went, when I was about 6 or 7, I believe. When the dentist was taking X-Rays, the bite-down bit hurt so much I cried, and wouldn't let them put it back in. It still hurts! And, come to find out, I...
Firstly, I'd like to thank you all for your kind messages, they made me feel better! And about the school psychologists, I found something out the other day. While they're called psychologists and have the degrees to have that title, the role they play in school is a guidance counselor for kids...
So I went down to the Guidance Office in school to ask about the school's psychologists. As I thought, you generally need an IEP to really work with one, unless I had a specific person I wanted to talk to. This just made me think, why would I really want to see them? I think I want to because...
It's nothing new to me that I feel "behind" my peers. Socially, emotionally, interest wise. Instead of a regular high schooler (9th-12th, about 14/15-17/18 years old for those who don't know), I feel like I'm 12 or something! I'm 16 though, and I'm afraid of what the future holds. Everyone...
So come to find out, my school has psychologists. 4 of them, in fact. I'll try to schedule time with them sooner rather than later. Or, should I wait until next school year? It's getting close to the end right now, and I don't want to have to waste gas and money driving up to the school or...
So the show on Saturday was great. My mom got us both seats in the balcony, to the back, so it wasn't too loud! Also, I found out my therapist is going on vacation. I told him about the whole "weird leg" thing, but we didn't really explore it. Would it be worthwhile to talk about what I think is...
Something weird happened today. I felt bad because I continuosly got a problem wrong in math, which carried over into science. We were discussing possible group projects, and I had gone nonverbal. Hearing everyone talk about the project made me a bit angry, which manifested into a physical...
Something happened today that seems very insignificant, and I suppose it it. My phone screen cracked. Hadn't dropped it, just hit it with the metal part of the seatbelt. I had never previously broken a phone screen before, and it's taking a bit of getting used to. Only thing is, it sent me into...
As I always do at the beginning of "Therapy Weeks", I'm debating on whether I should bring up autism. I also usually get too afraid to, and refer to the giant list of stuff I wanted to bring up since last year. It feels like I'm doing myself a disservice, by not utilizing the time I have to talk...
So these past couple days have been interesting, to say the least. I've never known myself to have anger issues, but I've noticed that I get annoyed very quickly in situations that wouldn't bother me before. Other kids asking questions in class, a couple of kids talking over the teacher/when...
another emeto warning! So I get nauseous a lot. It's indiscriminatory. I could be eating, drinking something, smelling something, standing still (lol), and I'm nauseous. It sucks, because I did ask my doctor about it beforehand, and she gave me meds for it, but they gave me horrible headaches...
There's a lot of ways this applies in my life. For example, wearing a binder. I'm dysphoric without it, and dysphoric with it. More aware of my chest, constantly feeling it to see if I've "slipped" and have to adjust. Another instance is in school work I have to do. The teacher assigned a...
emeto warning! I know some people don't want to read about nausea and what comes with it, so this is a warning! So, I have frequent headaches. Often enough that I usually decline meds for it in fear of becoming dependent/tolerant of it. However, not frequently enough to really tie it down to...
I had a good idea of what I wanted to write here, keyword "had". I suppose I'm dreading going back to school next week. That first day back is always horrifying, being bombarded with noise and smells and lights and people all at once. But at least I'll have a kind of structure in my life again...
It's been a long while since I was on here, mostly due to my horrible memory, getting more involved with school, and falling back into my default cycle of social media, games, repeat. However, I wanted to try and figure things out the way I do best: talking/typing to myself! I would like to ask...
