    I feel like it’s time for me to disappear. I am slowly but surely becoming excommunicated from the autism community.

    Hello & welcome.
    "Euclid was right...?"
    Most people did not trust him.
    He always seemed to be working some angle or another...! ;)

    Others tell me I am mentally unstable. Try living with an emotionally and physically abusive family before you judge me.

      You're going to have to come up with a better pick-up line than that.
      How about,
      "You should be grateful that I haven't punched you, yet?"

      What I mean is you are saying,
      "I have an excuse to be contentious, so count on me to be contentious."

      Are you familiar with the phrase,
      "Shooting yourself in the foot?"

      You need to relax. That may not be an aggressive approach, but (on the plus side) it is less repulsive. (And it will take some time to undo the damage that you are currently doing. Or don't)

    Gone staffing twice today during a downpour. I find it so refreshing. I walk back through the woods to work with a huge grin on my face.

    If I had a girlfriend, I would be so much happier and my brain wouldn’t be malfunctioning from neural pathway blocks.

      I know many people with depression, and there's a definite pattern to mental health issues complicating relationships. You have to be willing to work on your own happiness - not dump all your problems at someone else's door and think it'll fix you. It won't.

      Maybe it's well meant but you have to remember that that is your life, what worked and didn't work for you doesn't have to to be the case for him , it's really invalidating when you go up to someone and say: "well ur just depressed so it's all in your head". If anything you could be overgeneralizing yourself.

      Not having any hope for romantic relationships is a very legit reason to feel depressed and frustrated, I am going to leave it at that.

    I had too much coffee today, now my brain is regretting it. I probably should switch to decaf after two cups of my usual dark roast.

    It’s not that I don’t appreciate the dating advice I am getting. My executive function is really bad right now and then there’s my father.

      Get some pieces of cloth wet and put them on top on your forehead, or on your legs, etc.

      I see. Thanks. I cdn't tell whether you meant that, or whether it was a completely sudden emergency surgery.

    It's been 25 months since I last visited my land. I really want out of the cities. *sigh*

      Nope, I was last up there in May 2019 to stake out the boundaries of the lot. Then I wasn't able to go back in the fall due to the fires. Then covid hit. In 2021 I wanted to build a shed and live in that, but my mom was skeptical, so I bought the toy hauler instead. I've been gradually doing work in the trailer with my uncle's help. I was hoping to go up in June, but there is a record breaking heat wave here now.

      The toy hauler is parked in the back of my mom's house here in Sacramento. The surroundings you see on the Trailer Prince website is the back of mom's property. You can see the back of the main house and some of the granny flat I live in.

      The initial photos were taken at the previous owner's home in Waterford, but everything else was taken here.
