    Is it normal to act a little bit different than you are to find a common ground with a friend?

      I notice you are acting for their sake, but where is the enjoyment for you? You will exhaust yourself and give up eventually if you don't take care to do enjoyable things for you with her. Worry less about her and take care of your needs in the friendship for now. Having friends should be fun and enjoyable for you.

      Secrets are okay. There are somethings that are your business only and most friends are on a *need to know basis*. Sometimes we trust to easily, so a boundary of not over-sharing is important to our surival.

      The only friend I didn't to do this with when I wasn't open about my Autism very much was with my friend, Nate, who was in the same sped class as I was in middle school. I started to do this less as I began to accept myself more.

    I have always acted different to gain friends, but then felt lonely with them.

    Remember when my status was "here, not here...?" Well now it's sort of going between hope and, "my life kind of sucks right now."

    No, I don't sleep until 11 every day. I wake up at 9 and decide to nap for a couple hours. :)

    Has thinking about what I asked made you panic less:*)
    1. AprilR
      I think i am able to block the panic either way, because if i don't drive the public transport situation will make me stressed. I will panic about having the virus and passing it to to my parents.

      When you want to befriend someone or make them your partner but for someone reason, can't just flat-out tell them that.

    Best Buy ad: "You can fit a bigger TV than you think." *facepalm* What is it with gigantic TV's nowadays?

      When does the Law of Diminishing Returns finally clobber people? When do people realize that it's the same stupid football game no matter the size of the TV? People will buy a TV that takes up an entire wall. Uh, ok.

    Unfortunately I'm still busy with work and university; I'll still drop-by though because I really like this place, it really boosts my mood.

      The reason I tried to learn to drive was because my mother was paralysed, why are you learning to try to drive?

      Because when i start working i don't want to use public transport as it is too crowded/ risky.
      My parents are also getting older and i don't want to depend on them to take me everywhere.
