    It also contributes to negative stereotyping of people on the spectrum. It hurts everyone.

    Before he suggests he is a Teflon coated vessel... let's be a bit more specific!:

    "Anger is fluoroantimonic acid that will do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured." (partially untrue as this stuff is so nasty it destroys almost anything no matter what)

    Thank you :)

    Ha! It's hard for me to imagine a hummingbird being aggressive - aren't they teeny tiny things. I've seen them on TV. Absolutely amazing.

    Some of our magpies can be a problem in nesting seasons. However for those that live nearby they learn all our faces and we are not picked on or affected, even when we go near the nests. They know we are no danger and they recognise us.

    I read that magpie nesting season this year was theorised to be worse due to people being out wearing masks. I'm not sure if this is happening or not because I only check the news very occasionally. Where I live barely any people are wearing masks so I can't comment through personal experience either.

    Oh... are our little hummingbirds aggressive! We have feeders all around our yard. They chase each other. They chase crows. They chase goldfinches... they pretty much chase everything that moves. I have heard them body slam each other. Oh and the looks they give me when I change the feeders... "WTH are you doing with my flower?!".

    Our crows recognize us and watch for us to get home in hopes they will get a mealworm treat :) The chickadees always let us know when the mealworm feeder is empty. Our yard is a bit of a jungle...

    Despite all the labels thrown around, how about just sitting down and having a maintence talk about stuffs? Sometimes we just need to reconnect,get on the same page, air some differences, give some compliments. And finish up with something fun to do together.

    I can understand his concern for utility. Despite your limited mobility, are you able to do errands around the home? What are things you can do that would make you more mobile?

    About friends, you need to be your own person and try to make your own friends. Just because your partner may not have friends doesn't mean he's necessarily holding you up. That onus is on you. I do get that because you are partners with him, that some people might feel weird that if they don't get along with your partner, that they won't get along with you. Keep trying. Not everyone will be quite like that. Also, you and your partner chose to be with each other. Try to make being with each other continue to work, despite any changes in your life. Sometimes, you need to create you own way to make things work out. Find ways that make yourself as independent as possible from your partner. Be able to stand on your own.
