    regrets

    Can you get back in touch with her in any way. It's easy to regret what we said at the time, hindsight is 20-20 vision.

    Toxic workplace

    I don't mean to insult, maybe you are not suited to these normal workplaces, as they are toxic. I wish I had just said "I struggle to interact with people who are not healed, and who abuse others in work" when I was working. Maybe, work somewhere where you love doing what you do, even if it for...

    Online vs offline socializing

    I like the "non real-time" interactions you get online. Offline, despite my age, I am still very much learning, and am growing tired of people who don't understand, who exclude, ignore, and general arsehole behaviour. Having said that, I have some good offline friends, some on the spectrum.

    Lying and gaslighting

    Abusive comes to mind, autistic or not. Some people mask for so long and so hard that their behaviour becomes dishonest and cruel. I know an undiagnosed bloke I think is on the spectrum, he would not get tested though, he masks really hard, and it manifests in cliquey, cruel head-games behaviour.

    *Possible Trigger Warning* I think I know why I constantly think about suicide during meltdowns

    Maybe forget lottery wins, and just find "A place" a room, that is away from the original abusers.

    *Possible Trigger Warning* I think I know why I constantly think about suicide during meltdowns

    I find I am my own bully, I live alone, I did not exercise diligence when I bought this flat, was not in a good headspace, and now the consequences of that are here, every morning when I wake up, I feel bullied by myself for what is to come, as a consequence of the mistakes I made. I fear being...

    *Possible Trigger Warning* I think I know why I constantly think about suicide during meltdowns

    I saw it, and I am listening. Here is my penny's worth. It’s great when we realise something that has puzzled us about emotions. This is going to sound harsh, you were abused, brain tumour or not. You felt pain inflicted on you, full stop, and that is traumatic. Being bullied at home and at...

    The Holistic hospital-how I would like to see healthcare evolve, not much chance though.

    Hello I take it that you are not officially diagnosed? That’s ok and sorry if I am wrong. They put me on antipsychotics also, well Seroquel, it’s antihistamine up to 300mg, then after that dose it’s antispsychotic. They put me on it for anxiety. It made me retain fluid, so my feet and...

    I should have said in the OP it's just an imagining I had. I respect that you have different views to me on psychiatrists and alternate medicine.

    I know, the OP was a fantasy, imagining, I should have said that in it. I like Dr Gabor Mate.

    The Holistic hospital-how I would like to see healthcare evolve, not much chance though.

    That's ok With regard to drugs I found ecstasy to be very psychedelic whereby the friend I did it with did not. I understand some NT's find it psychedelic. I wonder if we are more sensitive to psychedelics, just me wondering. I used speed as a "utility drug" as I feel challenged on a day-to-day...

    Sorry your body tried to kill you twice. I was glad of my nose surgery when I had an abscess, it gave me my sense of smell and taste back. I was just toying with the idea of a potential future scenario. It's ok if it doesn't resonate with everyone :)

    What would a diagnosis mean to me?

    I think it's personal whether people want to self diagnose or get an official diagnosis. For me, a diagnosis helped, for instance, I had a meltdown and when I tried to explain them, before diagnosis, a professional said I do not know I am autistic until I have an official diagnosis, but everyone...

    Do you think in pictures?

    While I think in pictures, I would love to create some abstract art to convey my emotions, so that, when people look at my art, they feel the emotion that I feel. There is a paucity of mental imagery coming to me at the moment, and what there is, right now, is too corny to paint/draw. I hope for...

    It’s great now we have wholistic hospitals. We are still in a transition stage, where we need professionals to operate, treat, and advise, however, drugs are slowly but surely disappearing. There are still, what seems, like different sections for body parts, yet, at the top, sits the...

    Aspergers Drop-in Centres

    I disagree that autistic people should be pressured into socialising. We have a zoom thing here, you can attend if you want. There is also an "in person" social hub of positivity (SHOP) that is part of a 25 year old organisation for the arts, the SHOP is only nearly 2 years old, and I hope it...

    What would a diagnosis mean to me?

    Personally, I felt validated, I was diagnosed at 54. I think the friends I used to meet for coffee would think me annoying etc, if they did not know why I rocked back and forth. I got a support worker and I feel the attitude of the mental health staff is different as well, they seem to take the...

    My stim is smoking. Help

    I used lozenges alone and gum and nearly got off, but about a year ago, I had relationship stress and responded to that using painkillers, which cause nicotine cravings, so I use lozenges and cigarettes now. I like a cigarette with a cup of tea. I want to want to stop as well, so I know what you...
