  • This website has probably been the most constructive online space I've been on in a long time. Thank you all. You are good friends.

    There's a reason that this is the ONLY online space I'm comfortable in!

    I always appreciate your posts Gerontius.=)
    Things that used to be difficult with executive functioning are getting somewhat better, and it is a hopeful thing.
    Today I think some of my friends IRL are beginning to be affected by seasonal depression. I wish winter was cosy instead of sorrowful.

    I wish I could hibernate through winter and wake up in spring with all of my belly fat gone.

    @Metalhead wouldn't that be fun? I don't mind winter much but it's definitely a trifle gloomier outside. Soak up all the sunshine you can get, I guess.
    Spent the morning digging through a stash of gramophone records, the midday networking so I can start a second job and further a career, the afternoon out on a good horse, and the evening in a text of Thomistic metaphysics. Work, study, exercise, and music. Not bad!

    And the funniest part is I haven't had time all day to doomscroll through posts on the internet, so that's been good. I am starting to suspect that too much of my doomscrolling was actually quite detrimental to creativity and mental clarity. I'm not too creative & I'm not that much of a planner but I do like to be more optimistic.

    My interests have gained me some notoriety in my community & I am networking with the folks who trade antiques professionally. My interest in horsemanship is actually going somewhere, pun intended, and I've figured out a number of things with that I thought I was incapable of, newfound physical dexterity has improved that. And my head is clearer; even favorite records sound fresh.
    Hi, Awful People checking in. I don't leak DMs but I do cite public posts. On behalf of Catholics I am so sorry, we aren't all like this. Same goes for Autistic people. We aren't all this way.
    Negative cultural perception of religion is most strongly driven by the attitudes and reactions of the angrily religious devotees.

    The whole culture war nonsense can be resolved as simply as humbly acknowledging that the majority of Christian people are damned poor advertising for their faith.
    Raise your hand if you hate the question, "Where are you from?"

    I respond by saying I am from Hell and I have come to collect your soul. That shuts them up very quickly. :)

    I get it all the time. I always say I'm from here, born and raised. They say, of course but where do you/family originally come from? (Thanks for reminding me that because I'm not white/black that I must hail from somewhere else) :rolleyes:.
    Do you have any finished novels?

    Could i read something you have written?

    I think I can arrange to send you something! Be warned, I'm an amateur who probably should not be let near a pen without supervision.

    You could direct message me a link to a pdf file if you have that.
    I think my father is trying to intimidate me. News for him; high school was over years ago. I've been making efforts to improve this & he mistakes them for a problem--Not sure a decent relationship with the old duffer is in the cards.

    I can somewhat relate to that. My experience is that freedom is got by using it. So any action that clearly show that you are the one who control your life should make him understand that he no longer can control it.

    Not really. I'm not schizophrenic and none of us smoke weed, we're just chronically bad at communicating!
    I'm starting to feel like I should beat executive dysfunction. Hopefully that is actually possible
    On the television at a store today the Fox commenters were hollering about the mentally ill & violent crime. I worry sometimes that autistic people are going to be seen as automatic perpetrators. Guilty before proven innocent, and all that rot.

    That could happen with psycopaths, there is actually correlation with them.

    Also with ADHD people, there is also correlation with them.

    Also with men in woman abuse, strong correlation.

    But autistics are mostly victims.

    Yes. However, I suspect "mentally ill" is becoming a category of Other, or at least it seems that way-- I've seen people yelling that liberalism is a mental illness--what they present as an op-ed today might be the stochastic terrorism of tomorrow.
    I need to get a day a week for career work--This job I have is ruining my time to prep for a career.
    I've gained 13 pounds--my trousers still fit; it's all muscles. I feel great!

    That is bloody awesome!

    Thanks, I think it is because of my job being more physical--was not expecting decent results.
