  • The amount of instinctive illogical behavior i see daily makes me so tired. I can't understand it and i dont want to blame myself for it

    I am sending a virtual crown to you. You are a trouper. Good you aren't "going there." Work places can be extremely dysfunctional. Worse than our families.

    I had a boss who would go off on tirades then bring makeup box of donuts the next morning. I think she was on meds. I left, it wasn't worth the money. I think she was bipolar.

    I had such an exhausting day. My stomach is in knots and my brain is about to explode from overload.

    I recently started using a New medication, idk if this is a side effect or not. I feel like vomit ing but i have to eat.
    I dont feel alive most of the time. But its still better than anxiety.

    Ty very much. I don't think i have the courage to immigrate, but it is still nice to know this.

    At the very least i am grateful for the existence of this forum and İnternet in general. I can connect with people i have something in common with.

    yeah I totally agree with you. it´s the same for me.
    I met with a disabled employee today via work. (not our employee) I think i really have heightened empathy for people who are different, and i think he could sense that as well. I think most of my friends through out my life had had a learning disorder/mental illness/disability.

    Bur if you hang out with someone who feels like an energy vampire, and you feel bad inside when in their company. I think that's a clear indicator for me.

    I think it means a lot to have someone else who is kind to you especially if you are different. =)

    I don't think you are a bad friend if you distance yourself from people who make you feel bad. I also did a similar thing to a friend though, and i understand how it feels. I felt alone in her company Somehow even if we got along good. I think she was also depressed like me
    I will be starting a New medicine for concentration issues

    That sounds like a great thing. Just make sure you read the complications because this is important. But if this helps, your confidence will skyrocket and in general, that's good for you. I have had to really work on my confidence myself. It's tough.
    Why do ignorant people think they know everything?

    They don't know enough to realize there's more to know.

    When you know very little, the world is an incredibly simple place. When you know a lot, you see just how incredibly complex it is and realise that you will probably never understand more than a very small part of it.

    They must live in an incredibly small world i guess
    *leaves my comfort zone to check out local autism forums*
    *sees the horribly sexist and toxic people there*
    *IMMEDIATELY escapes to my comfort zone.
    No thanks world!

    No problem. Yeah i hate gender stereotyping and it is very common where i live Sadly.

    I just tried to understand. I'm a 36 male and heard about gender stereotypes but... It's all outdated info. I knew lot of woman who would over do me in my male traits and other way round. :)
    It's common all over the globe. Not only where You live. Wherever You actually live
    AprilR
    AprilR
    Exactly. Not even scientifically, even in normal daily life these stereotypes just don't fit with real people
    I posted on a local forum.. About my autism.. May have opened Pandora's box haha..

    what do you mean with "local forum?" local = of your country?
    AprilR

    Yes, that's what i meant. I am kinda paranoiac that i will get "found out"

    I hope that it isn’t too bad.
    Couldn't get through my therapy appointment since i couldn't talk much due to coughing. My therapist Said i should get my lungs tested

    I am scared and sad. I don't even know what to think anymore. I hope it is nothing serious, i dont want my parents to worry
    I Got told i am too slow at work. I feel nauseous and hateful

    Doing the job was sort of like a puzzle, so I found that part fun as well. What's the best way to organize your boxes? You can hide some boxes, but then write down the number on another box of the same type. We have union protection here though, and I've heard the job is way worse in the US, so I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. It was also a minimum wage job.

    One of my primary goals in life has been to get by for as long as possible without ever taking a service or customer facing job. Thus far, I've mostly succeeded. I'm just saying, that I totally understand what you are talking about in regards to your job. Having unclear instructions and unrealistic expectations really sucks. I hope things get better for you. All jobs are not created equal.

    Thank you. I am a lawyer working in a very small office but the responsibility is so heavy. There are so many things i don't know and i am so scared of making mistakes. No one helps me either
    I always get self conscious when i watch movies or shows with autistic/socially awkward characters in them with my parents. I get so anxious that they know about me but don't talk about it
    AprilR
    AprilR
    Yeah i hate watching shows or movies with autistic characters in them. The only one i liked was Mozart and the Whale

    I also liked Big Bang Theory. sure, very exaggerated, but that´s quite normal for a sit-com and I found that they did their work good with the autistic characters.
    AprilR
    AprilR
    I.. hate that show Hahaha. Hated every character even though i watched very little, it was enough for me
    My coworkers left together without inviting me. I am so used to being ignored and i have come to such a stage i didn't feel much sadness. I won't be a likable person to these people's standards no matter what i do. It's my limitation

    They met up somewhere i was also at. And they knew i would be there too, we wouldn't be in close contact either way. It is an open space.

    Ok, I see. That's rude of them.

    That was stupid of them. You continue to be your great self. I find a lot of cliques in work places. It is usually not nice people who clique. I would have just gone over and say hey- hi. Funny running into you here. Then left smiling.
    I worked from home today as well, since my coworkers were scared of getting infected.
    Tomorrow will be a busy day though, *sigh*
    I decide to wait and see if i get fired until february. On february i will be working for one year in this office, so i will have the right to demand compensation. That's why i think he will do it until then.

    I found that a lot of Europeans are beautiful people. Even eccentric at times. You may do just fine in Japan. Just trust your gut if a situation doesn't feel right.
    AprilR
    AprilR
    Ah i am sure that nothing bad will happen, Japan is a very safe country. But i am worried about being isolated there as i am here. But i have heard people are more lenient of differences when you are in a foreign country since you are well.. A foreigner. We will see

    They can be racist, so just be aware of that. I was waving to the gypsies in Europe, and l was told, no, no, no, don't do that. In Finland, a young girl walked up and asked my employer if l was a gypsy. Lol
    Losing my friend feels like i lost part of myself that i was trying to hold on to.

    Even the most precious relationships fade over time. I couldn't make it last. I feel empty.

    I'll work from home tomorrow too. My coworkers seemed to want that, since i am coughing a lot and they might have been scared that i will infect them too.

    Why are you coughing?
    My mom gets on my nerves even when i am sick. She really loves to think i am normal

    Mom's are a necessary evil. I did my best to really support my daughter.
