    VIP Memberships: How long does it take to process the upgrade once it's been paid for? Two members have PMd me that they've been waiting for over 2 weeks.

    Finally had some weed for the first time in a month. I remember absolutely nothing about last night. That is a good thing.

    I have thought of some of you as real friends and have even made up nicknames out of your usernames.

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

      No one wants you to leave.
      No one wants you to keep spiraling downward under a futile paradigm, either.

      (That futile paradigm is that life owes you a girlfriend.)
      Keep seeing your therapist. After you lose some of that baggage, you will start to radiate a healthy level of security.

    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?"
      [Notice: the preceding was an exercise in hyperbole...]

      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)

      How many tacos?

      Two chicken soft tacos. I added some fresh jalapeños on them this time.

      That seems a modest number, for tacos. :)

    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.

    Finally - I'm all caught up at work. Doing work as and when it comes in. Now I'm bored, because there's no work to do. Can't win.
