    ARGH!!! Game Over.

    My perfect strategy matched perfectly my innate skill to ruin things. :eek:
    My reading of "Trauma and Recovery" is changing me in ways I did not expected. I have stared into the abbys and the abbys have stared into me.

    It seems I have quite a few unresolved stuff of my past. Already in chapter 10. I really want to finish it so I can evade from this pool of darkness I have re-discovered in myself.

    A Pandora book.

    Maybe you rediscovered darkness, but your foundation for dealing with it is likely stronger now. These things frequently come up when we take that step to go even further toward well-being and peace of mind. I know you’ll get there and you have the strength to push on over unexpected mountains in the way.

    I think the content of the book is very important for people who have deal with trauma or similar difficult experiences. And since Autists deal with a lot of trauma and dificult experiences it may be specially important for us.

    But its also very likely to trigger strong emotions, so I would recomend it with care to people who is in a safe enviroment. Adding extra triggers to an already dificult situation may be too much for some people.
    I relax a lot listening to Tibetan Bowls sounds, but my daugther prefer ASMR videos. I think this one is very relaxing and want to share it with you. Relax:

    Last year I picked up a tibetan singing bowl without ever having hearing or seeing one before and I was completely awestruck, like it was calling out to me. They are the coolest things in the world, imho

    Ok, so no more ASMR sharing. Just Tibetan Bowls. :)

    YUP! Not into that at all. There are some internet sensations I 100% don't get. ASMR and pimple popping are two of the main ones (no offense meant for those who enjoy them.
    Very hard week, very close to my limits. Stressed. I hope next week will be easier. I have burnt 3 kg. Not a diet I would recomend. Sleep well.

    You're saying that you've lost weight, around six pounds, this week?
    That wasn't intentional, was it?

    No, it was due to stress. Not eating non sleeping properly. It has been a very difficult week. Now its going better. Thanks.
    Its like stress events wait untill there are enougth of them to jump on us at the same time. Work, Selling home, Daugther at School, Investments,... It was too much at the same time.

    Today I did better and new and worst things happened, putting me to the limit again. Tomorrow I have an important family event. And at the same time an important work event. Family goes first. Hope not to be fired.

    Fortunatelly my wife did 90% of the social stuff. So many kind people, so many kids. Tired but happy.
    Im so happy when I see the good and sensitive advice many of you give in this forum. I try to help but I feel im throwing info to their faces.

    When I read some of your answers I see a lot of empathy, care and very good advices. Hugs to all of you.

    Thank you all, I dont feel bad about myself. Im happy to see that so many people offer great and also sensitive advice.

    I dont have the envy circuit in my brain, so I never feel bad when I see others doing things better than me. :)
    When I read old posts, I become aware of how many interesting people have been posting here that are inactive now. Is that something that will happen naturally to most of us?

    Whats the average active time of users on this forum?

    Its a bit like life, I guess. People comes, people leaves. Somewhat sad. :(

    People might return. I used to frequent an anxiety forum for about 5 years but it gradually fizzled out. I kept my account with them though. I went off it in particular when they got rid of the chat room ability. But also, it was just a place where most people were panicking, needing help and it becomes quite draining.

    Aye, as a more permanent user myself, I've always found this aspect to be a bit depressing. You meet people on here, and you find yourself quite liking some of them, and then one day, one of them just... stops. And you'll likely never know why.
    The more I read about trauma, the more similar things I see with how autism is adressed. Not only because most autists do have trauma, but because how psycology seems to work.

    Example, read this sentence:

    As long as they could function on a minimal level, they were thougth to have recovered.

    Psychologists talking about trauma "cure" on soldiers at WWII.
    Finished reading "The world for sale". It was educative but very niche. Too much info about the same topic for my taste.
