    How can I accept my diagnose and stop masking?

    TRIGGER WARNING: depression, OCD, anxiety, suicide thoughts. Hello. It'll be a little long, sorry for my broken english: I was diagnosed last november. The process took almost eight months. I was already going to a psycologist since 11 years old and to a psychiatrist, since 15 years. I have...

    Who's the Monster?

    Who's the Monster? I've been reading a lot lately about psychopathy (or more properly, antisocial personality disorder) and its overlaps and connections with autism. It should be noted that "psychopathy" doesn't actually have a formal definition in the DSM or ICD, but I fail to see any major...

    Feeling Guilty for who am I

    Does anyone else feel guilty because of their disability and find them selves constantly apologising for needing helping, having a melt down etc. People tell me I say sorry to enough but I feel like have too.
