    I feel like an idiot for struggling to act my age

    I am 17, but I find myself struggling to make friends my age (or at all) and I find it essentially hard to 'act my age'. I don't entirely understand why but I can tell I'm much more kid like then my peers and I find it feeling kinda embarrassing. I still play with toys, I prefer kid shows for...

    Can I vent about my crummy day at work?

    Apologies if this isn't allowed.

    Probably not autistic, now I don't know what to do

    This summer I've been doing a bunch of research about autism, making pages and pages of notes with reasons why I might be on the spectrum, and I got a referral from a doctor to get an autism assessment in a few years. I felt like I was finally on to something after a lifetime of wondering what's...

    Therapists in my area aren't qualified!

    Maybe it is different elsewhere, but most therapists in my area have degrees in theology or some other religious certification. Literally 99 out of 100. My son was seeing one of these "therapists" (because there is hardly anyone else) and she literally did "nothing". Didn't ask him questions...
