    Fear: Do you experience fear in situations that are probably safe situations?

    Please vote before you read the post. I am curious about people's perceptions before reading this as well as people's input afterward: Last night, I started to read about a syndrome where people have too much cortisol(stress hormone from the adrenal glands), and a lot of the psychological...

    Greetings fellow humans!

    I'm new here - like just got here five minutes ago new. I've been diagnosed with ADHD, severe anxiety and depression. There's a good chance that I'm autistic but that is to be determined. One thing that definitely made me consider Autism is that my brother (who is diagnosed autistic) just...

    Not being able to say no/ people not understanding no.

    ( i am using they/them to refer to just one person not multiple people in this context ) It really annoys me when people just don’t get it when I ask them not to do something, for an example I keep telling my friends to not touch my stuff without my permission and to not touch me but for some...

    Suddenly canceling plans

    I sometimes suggest to do things with people wich I don’t actually want to do but I feel like I have to do to make them feel better or to not disappoint them, I usually prefer just staying at home and doing nothing after a whole week of school or even just a day out with friends, so I really...

    Does anyone hide their Autism?

    This may be a strange question to some and maybe not others but I've only come to terms, acceptance and acknowledgement of my autism within the last 3 years. Its feels like the more I look into autism and really start to understand it, I am noticing things about myself I didn't before. It feels...

    does anyone suffer from stomach migraines/ intense stomach pains with cramping etc? I get them when my body is overloaded and can't digest food that I've recently eaten. It's awful and was wondering if anyone else experienced this?
  14. trustwaves


    When you're burnt out, low spoons and recharging, how do you cope with not being able to do your normal routines? Like for example food? No energy to cook what do you do instead? No energy for self care? What do you do!? How do you recharge without overloading yourself even more?!
