    I just saw a bus go by and I was like “what the heck?” Then I realized it’s almost 5:30am and people are going to work now. Still awake :(

    Is replacing beer with a video gaming addiction progress?

      Gaming won't hurt your liver. It's a baby step.

    My youngest dog is 65+ pounds. She went up to a toddler very gently and licked his face. The parents weren’t scared. It was very touching :)

    I feel a lot better today. My parents took me to a mountain park. Almost everyone wanted to play with my dogs. Mine love kids. Made me happy

    University lectures started this week. I felt overwhelmed and didn't want to go back. I used to be fine with going to lectures.

      Talk to disability services and also your teacher about this. Is the seating like a classroom, or is it arena-style?

      Maybe a chair in the corner, near the door, to alleviate some of that fight or flight?

      Or maybe a seat right by the teacher's desk, so you can't see the other students, and are very close to the board?

    I still manage to rub everyone the wrong way when I’m trying specifically not to. Maybe my issue is more mental illness than it is Autism

      Thank you, I didn’t mean that post to sound rude. I just get frustrated with myself

      I was just worried I made it sound like I was mad and it could’ve been misinterpreted or something. I overthink too much, that’s all :)

    I really hope people understand I didn’t do anything bad towards the woman I mentioned before. We had a chat on the day I “graduated”.

    I want to make a steak on my grill, but beef is getting to be too expensive.

      Go in with three or four friends on a half beef.

    Someday, I will have to accept the fact that I will NEVER fit in, no matter how hard I try :(

      I accepted that a LONG time ago. When I finally realized that I would never be allowed to participate in society in any way and would always be considered a useless eater, I decided to simply live in the wild as a self sufficient (as much as possible) hermit. It's not like anyone other than a handful of family members will notice I'm gone.

      Everyone is special and unique. No one really "fits in", and if they do, it's so boring. Be yourself. We love you here!

    So I did a neck ultrasound and I guess I do have Hashimoto's after all. I do feel a lot better since taking synthroid and I leave Sunday!

      I have a low TSH, I think that's the polar opposite of Hashimoto's. I've only been treated for it by Naturopathic Doctors with herbs and supplements. It was pretty effective. How does the medication work or make you feel? I'm very curious.

      @Yeshuasdaughter Well Synthroid is just the synthetic version of T4 (thyroid hormone) TSH is the hormone your brain puts out to tell your thyroid to make T4 but mine does not do a good job at that so I have high TSH. Since it's just a replacement of the hormone it's been good. No side effects so far and I have energy now!!

    Another car almost hit me! Are people deliberately trying to kill cross walkers?

      It's Texas, so yeah probably. The mentality is similar to those old cartoons where drivers run people over and then stamp person pictograms on their cars to brag.
