    When you feel your life start to improve?

    Whether or not this has happened to you recently (sorry if it hasn't!!) is there anything happening to you that you're super excited/happy about or just a nice change? Mine is that I get to stay at my Mum's place for 7 days while my other relatives are out and I just did my nails... I'm so...

    Reacting to change

    How do you react to change? Like, if your routines change, plans that are made suddenly change, etc. I've noticed that even minor changes stress me out and overwhelm me. Something like having to work an hour earlier will stress me out for the whole day, or the order of things that I do during...

    Can't be wrong because you can't change?

    Whoa, just a few minutes ago something came to me, and as I came here, this thought developed more and more and I actually feel rather uneasy or disturbed right now as I type this. Also a quick warning that this topic is related to my Faith, I'll avoid going into detail on it but it might come...

    People do change.

    I have noticed, after participating in a few online forums over a few years, that although personality structure remains fairly consistent throughout the life span, I actually do see some improvement in certain participants. It's easy to conclude when all a person's posts seem to revolve around...

    The fear of taking risks...related to autism?

    I’m at a crossroads in my life. Maybe this isn’t even a big deal but it feels like a big deal to me. Im living in an apartment that I like OK, but it isn’t MY place. I’ve never owned a place by myself, only when married to a man that had tools and handyman knowledge. Now I am single and a senior...

    Job Interview - Anxiety about new places

    Hi all, I have my first ever job interview tomorrow. At first I was very socially anxious about it, but then I worked out which angle to go for and have been practising questions so I'm not as worried about that anymore. I'm confident that I'll be able to answer most things. Usually with...

    I'm right on the tip of a burnout and know I need to make some changes if I want to stop myself tipping into the abyss, although I don't have the energy to think, process and take action. I've noticed a lot of aspies seem to go through regular burnout - have any of you found ways to cope when...

    The hits keep coming

    So, has the bubble burst? Has my new-found validity run out of steam? Met its match? Died a death? The answer is most assuredly: No. Indeed, I have put it to the test. I have thrown everything I can think of at it: There have been social events, stressful health issues, concerns about the...

    Balance is a tricksy hobbit.

    I've made it through my first month back in med school. It's been quite the month. In january I was sitting at home, overweight, chainsmoking, binge drinking and worrying about the future. These last four weeks I've spent twelve hours a day studying, I've stopped smoking, hardly had a drink, and...

    How do you deal with sudden, unexpected change?

    I can deal with change if it's me that instigates it, but if it's someone else I completely shut down and have to deal with overwhelming stress. It's my birthday this weekend and me and 2 friends have been planning since march, but sadly due to unforseen circumstances, my best friends parents...

    Changing routine to adapt to life's demands

    I read a lot. At least I prefer to. I have a ton of books from volunteering at the library. My normal reading time, according to the routine I've settled into, is late in the afternoon. Unfortunately my part-time retail job often makes doing it at that time impossible (though I have three days...

    New shows, movies and books

    I find that a lot of people get upset with me when I don't watch the show/movie they recommend or read a book that they wanted me to read. They say that I am not trusting their opinion on media or something. I only watch things I've seem before and have a very difficult time even trying to get...

    Hi I'm Niky

    A couple of people in my life have pointed out that they think I have aspergers. While I disagreed at first and found them amusing, I later started to wonder as well. I don't want to get diagnosed because I don't want it to affect my career. Anyway, I've always had trouble fitting into...
