    That old familiar feeling...

    No matter what I do, no matter what I try, I feel so alone. I hate it. I want to not hate it. I want to be, "strong and independent," and I want people to see me that way. Unfortunately, I feel like a weirdo/alien/robot, watching people around me have normal lives, normal relationships, and...

    Is autism the same as social anxiety disorder?

    When toddlers suffer from symptoms of social anxiety, doctors look for restricted and repetitive behaviors to differentiate between ASD and social anxiety disorder (SAD). However, restricted and repetitive behaviors also occur in people with autistic traits who aren't autistic. That means...

    My 3DS Broke!

    Today my 3DS just stopped working for no obvious reason and I have no clue why, although I did discover some damage to it. I guess I just dropped it one too many times. I'm really unhappy because I was going to make a New Year's Video of Animal Crossing: New Leaf tomorrow for my YouTube...

    Empathy and YOUR feelings as an AS person

    I'm asking for your opinions of how your experience of empathy - i.e. how the feelings of others affect you, makes you feel inside. The first video I did on the empathy topic covered how empathy can work for us, the second I'm currently working on talks about how and why we may be incorrectly...

    Crying with the city lights

    Tonight I feel lonely. I'm out here in my balcony, with a stunning view of the city at night. Usually I would have enjoyed it. But tonight I feel so lonely. I love being alone, when I want to be alone. That is a lot more frequent than it is for most people. I like to write, read, travel, eat...

    Remembering years of bullying.

    Lately I've been having flashbacks of the days when I got bullied in school. They range from the typical teasing, to having things thrown at me, gossiped about, falsely accused of vandalism, being called mentally challenged, 'roasted' by the entire classroom when I had done nothing wrong or...
