    My daughter just belted out R-E-S-P-E-C-T and she sounded just like Aretha. She even did this falsetto thing and it was.... wow.

      She went from like contralto up to soprano. It was incredible. I wish I could afford vocal coaching, because she is so gifted!

    Have been dealing with some medical issues with my dogs so I may not be on here a lot for a while. They’re ok but I need to focus on them.

    I looked back on my first ever topic here. I posted it back in 2018. Three years later, I still don’t have a girlfriend. :(

    Just diagnosed with Aspergers. (It sure explains a lot.) Hoping to find some folks who are "different" like me.

    Past hour I've had bad gut rot. Reminds me of when I was drinking all the time. Plenty of water and some healthy foods. Should pass soon.

      Yes! He's right. A tea with mint, ginger, burdock, and licorice will be very soothing for your tum tum.

      If it's downright awful though, go off of dairy for at least a few days and drink a full bottle of ginger kombucha. That is the insta-cure for a raging stomach.

      And if you swing that way, eight pellets of homeopathic gelsemium sempervirens 30c, taken three times, twenty minutes apart really helps with tummy turtles. It soothed so many digestive problems while I was going through treatment.

    I really felt lonely yesterday and today. I still feel sad I don’t have a girlfriend and I don’t know how to change my situation. :(

    I think I should stop stalling and get started on my ARG. I know what I want it to be: a message to the masses about autism.

      I knew it! Advocacy! Action born of empathy, activism of the heartsong.

    I helped somebody today. They let me in. They let me guide them. I am humbled when people look to me for answers.
  16. Raggamuffin
    One therapist I contacted works in the same village where I currently live. They might be the one. Yes - I will base it off convenience

    So yesterday i found out i had been diagnosed with adhd since childhood. I knew about my aspergers but not about that. It makes sense tho.
    1. Raggamuffin
      Supposedly the comorbidity rate of autism and ADHD is over 40%

    Frosty mornings and cold days. Supposedly getting a little milder later in the week. I like winter.

      Cambridgeshire is one of the sunniest and driest counties in the UK. As such winters don't tend to snow much. Usually we get snow early in the near year, as opposed to around Xmas. Frosty mornings is about as exciting as it gets.

      Average total winter snowfall here is 12 feet. There's rarely more than 3 feet on the ground at a time though....

      We probably get a couple of brief flurries here per year. Usually tail end of winter, just before spring. But who knows? Either way, I enjoy the early evenings as it means people aren't about as much when I go for my walks. Also I find it very refreshing to go on winter walks and wrapping up warm.

    I wasted nearly a whole day trying to get past Anor Londo in Dark Souls. I can’t get any of the life I lost back. :(

      Instead of calling it a waste, you could try thinking of it as an investment.

      Only thing to do would be hang out with gaming friends & talk about a day where Dark Souls kicked your ass. I'm sure everyone else has had a rough go of it too; some games are difficult!

      I managed to finally break down the wall I kept hitting and hurting my hands with! However, I am going to take a LONG Dark Souls break.
