    Third time's the charm for the charmless

    I don't know what to do. This is the third time that our boundaries have been violated and my parents showed up to my door without warning. Third and a half, if one counts the note which my father left a month ago. I trust that they traveled here, two hours away, because Friday was a holiday and...

    [vent] My father showed up to my home once again...unannounced...

    Yeah, this really isn't my week. Yesterday I was settling down to supper at home as my fiance told me that I wasn't going to be happy with something. Well, here goes, I thought, thinking of house issues or the fallen trees in our yard or maybe their parents had changed plans for a vacation...

    Middle of the night thoughts

    Hey everyone, just wanted these videos of some random thoughts I had during the middle of the night
  4. autism-and-autotune

    I'm terrified of taking this step, but I must.

    I'm deciding to finally muster the courage and finally file an official restraining order against my parents. For peace of mind and for the safety of myself and the one who I love, I know that I have to do this. But part of me is frozen, thinking of consequences or just general hesitation. I...

    Can someone help me decode this message?

    I'm trying not to analyze it or decode it or dwell on it too much; I'll need to think, but some perspective of others would be helpful. Thanks in advance. I am wary because I simply don't know if they are sincere, or trying to lure me back in as narcissists are wont to do.

    Advice needed? An odd situation

    I'm unsure if this is even the right place to ask for this sort of advice. Maybe it's not advice I need, but...just a place to part with my thoughts. Thank you in advance for bearing with me. It...well, I don't know how to begin. A person with whom I once had a past has somehow managed to...

    Vent/need for advice? I'm feeling a lot of intrusive thoughts regarding revealing my diagnosis.

    Thanks in advance; this may just be endless word regurgitation. Lately, I have had immense feelings of just wanting to reveal my diagnosis via the Facebook, where all my family could see it (as well as friends and connections of the past). I would, of course, block my parents beforehand, as...

    Data Entry

    Do any of you have any idea what a job in Data Entry is like? Have you had any experience? My family is considering putting me in the work from home data entry job, which means copying words and typing and stuff.

    I think I'm on the autism spectrum

    My friend got diagnosed with ADHD. I started researching neurodivergence so I could understand him better. During my research, I came across ASD. I realised that I identify with signs like Echolalia, stimming, sensory overloads, and keeping to routine. When I talk to people, it’s like I’m...

    What Makes Life Worth Living?

    Trigger warning: suicide There are many of us here who are able and willing to talk about our experiences with feeling suicidal. I am one of those people who has sadly sat on the edge too many times. Clearly, I am here, alive, and the edge has not crumbled beneath me, but some days the edge...

    People squish me. (seeking advice)

    I’m working on being happy. I’m not aiming for permanent bliss. I just want to find enough happiness to support the theory that it’s worth it to face each day and worth it to be alive. So here’s an issue where I could use some counsel – when I am alone, the music is great, I spend time cooking...

    Amateur/Ham Radio

    Hi everybody, I have been thinking of getting into Amateur/Ham Radio for a while now. I'm not really into the social side of the hobby but have a great interest in the technical side. Once you get to certain level you are able to build circuits to transmit/receive voice/data. Has anyone on...

    Hello! Waiting for assessment, and I have a question

    Hi everyone! I'm 28 years old and recently got a referral to get assessed for asd. I've come across information that made me realize it's a strong possibility for me, and I want to do more reading about autism, but I'm wondering: should I avoid doing too much research before my assessment...

    Hoping some people can relate and/or advise..

    I'm a 23 year old who just graduated college, and I'm struggling to get a job in my field. I've applied for many positions but the interview and hiring process is so draining that I can only handle a few at a time, and I get so burnt out that I end up flopping any follow-up interviews and...

    What is your best advice in four words or less?

    Having difficulty prioritizing painting and drawing, something I've been doing my entire life. Since the world was upended I've become anxious and it seems as if it's much more difficult to do. Recently I've encountered a blog that advises and it's helped. I'm back to sketching now. Wisdom in...
