    I am sorry if that word made anyone uncomfortable. It was just how i genuinely felt about myself and needed to get it out of my system.

    If it helps. I know how you feel. I decided to study biology on my own. Still feels like studying. Just can't get the information in my brain.

    When I was in grad school I had to study a lot. I sort of liked it because it was like being a child, since there was all this stuff I didn't know, but I could work at it to learn it.
    My parents yelled at me so much i was scared that my dad would beat me. All i can think about is that i have no one other than them.

    Hope you didn't down something awful in a weak moment. If you did, call 911 or whatever the emergency line is where you are and get to a hospital.

    I am sorry to worry you, i am fine. Didn't take anything really i was just feeling too much self hatred.
    Is it normal to act a little bit different than you are to find a common ground with a friend?

    I notice you are acting for their sake, but where is the enjoyment for you? You will exhaust yourself and give up eventually if you don't take care to do enjoyable things for you with her. Worry less about her and take care of your needs in the friendship for now. Having friends should be fun and enjoyable for you.

    Secrets are okay. There are somethings that are your business only and most friends are on a *need to know basis*. Sometimes we trust to easily, so a boundary of not over-sharing is important to our surival.

    The only friend I didn't to do this with when I wasn't open about my Autism very much was with my friend, Nate, who was in the same sped class as I was in middle school. I started to do this less as I began to accept myself more.
    Has thinking about what I asked made you panic less:*)

    I think i am able to block the panic either way, because if i don't drive the public transport situation will make me stressed. I will panic about having the virus and passing it to to my parents.
    Do you think thats enough to block out panic,it was for me it wasn't stressless though and I was 27 at the time
    I will start learning to drive in a week. I am so scared..

    The reason I tried to learn to drive was because my mother was paralysed, why are you learning to try to drive?
    AprilR
    AprilR
    Because when i start working i don't want to use public transport as it is too crowded/ risky.
    My parents are also getting older and i don't want to depend on them to take me everywhere.
    I can't sympathize with illogical people

    Undoubtably.
    My mother-in-law interprets everything she’s aware of in the world as messages from god to her and her church... Not very logical (and pretty obscene when it comes to wars and famines and so forth), but she’s happy in her own little world.
    Existence as a story book that confirms one’s sense of self-worth I guess.

    I don't think being a religious person automatically makes someone illogical, but Yeah there seems to be a lot of religious people like that.

    No, religion in and of itself is not necessarily illogical, nor is religious belief required to be illogical... just the illustration that occurred to me in the moment. ;)
