I can’t get a computer from the French disability services because I’m “not disabled enough” ouo 

how do they know

they literally calculate a purcentage of disability to know if they should help you or not

seriously I don’t get it, I know my needs better than them ???

I stim by skin picking, I’m curious if others stim by body repetitive actions like hair pulling/skin picking/ect?

I get a lot of crap for it, some don’t get that stimming isn’t always flapping or vocal noises.

Yes, I do that, too.

ANOTHER EXCITING RESEARCH MOMENT

APPARENTLY HAVING DIFFICULTY TURNING A KEY THE RIGHT WAY TO OPEN A DOOR IS AN AUTISM THING

SUDDENLY MY WHOLE LIFE MAKES SENSE

*has never ever been able to open a door on the first or second try*

trapped-inside-me:

It makes me mad that if I google “coping with autism diagnosis” at least all of the first page of results are aimed at parents to help them cope with their child’s diagnosis.  There seems to be very little for adults who are autistic themselves.  I don’t have an autistic child.  I want to find advice and tips for managing autism in daily life.  I also want to find advice from a mental health perspective on how to view oneself positively. 

aspergers communicating feelings in writing

autisticdrift:

It can be a lot easier to share information about feelings and emotional situations in writing because there is so much more time to get the words just right. Another useful strategy is to start a conversation by writing out your feelings and then letting the other person react verbally. 

Sometimes talking is hard. Especially talking about feelings. 

Those days when you can’t read more than two pages at a time…

Happy Easter, to everyone who celebrates it!

(And a blessed weekend to the rest of my readers.) 

I keep getting mad at myself because I don’t think I ever do enough.
