Blog:The Secret Aspie- Make Me Burn

I feel a sense of excitement this morning because even though I pine over R, I have not let that stop me in other areas of my life and that goes for finding lovers, I still have three prospects waiting in the wings, who seem decent and I look forward to meeting them for coffee, etc after my move to the city.

I do not see any point in trying to meet them

Hypnos: What was your most recent dream about?

This morning I woke up early, went back to sleep, and dreamed about being able to shapeshift like Mystique. It was awesome.

Thanatos: Is there anyone you just really, really hate?

Yes, there are people I just really, really hate. There are also plenty of people I just hate like, the usual amount. Most rich old

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “He asked you to watch them, not wear them.”

I figured I’d better do a bit of damage control after my recent ravings. I know many who read my blog are neurodiverse brethren who are younger than me, (literally, not the bullshit way allistic people measure age by time. I mean you who haven’t yet processed as much data as I have because your neural pathways are beautiful, and there are no shortcuts. Why use numbers to map a path never taken

Anonymous asked: aphrodite,ares,gaia,zeus Aphrodite: What do you love most about yourself?

My Synesthesia is pretty cool.

Ares: What small thing makes you angry?

Had to think about this one. I’m going to go with, when people shorten my name to Amy. Please do not do that thing.

Gaia: Where’s your favorite place in the world?

That I’ve been to? Maybe my grandma’s house, or the beach right near her house, or both.

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- From the Greek Mythology ask game: Hephaestus and Kronos

Hephaestus: What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made or built?

Oooh. I’m proud of the Marvel Girl dress I made for Hallowe’en. But I think this little clay corgi wins. It’s not very good, but I love it.

Kronos: What’s the [changed this to “strangest”] thing you’ve ever eaten?

A stale Ritz cracker, painted on one side with fuschia nail polish. I was eleven-years-old and my best friend at the time could be a bit

Blog:Stranger Darker Better-

My lower back screams at me to move. Pain burns through me like a wildfire destroys a forest, unstoppable, out of control. I know that if I just shift my weight, if I could just move a little, I could relieve some of the pain, maybe even forget about it for a little while.

I don’t move.

I want some chocolate ice cream, the food I’ve been samefooding for over a month. I crave the

Blog:Life with Aspergers- Getting Speech Flowing in Non-Verbal Children

Blog:Life with Aspergers- Getting Speech Flowing in Non-Verbal Children

One of the many interesting things about people on the autism spectrum is that the abilities of most people seem to be wildly underestimated. It’s hard to come up with a simple reason why this is the case but the results can have catastrophic effects on their lives and families. One of the most problematic areas of autism is communication. It’s often assumed that kids who don’t reach their speech milestones by ages 4-5 will

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “Let's go, Pop. White belt, white pants, white shoes, get in the back.”

Okay.  I had to let go of my rage.  I can’t afford to waste any more energy.  I do apologize for throwing all cops under the bus in my anger, knowing not all of them are racist pricks.  None have ever abused their authority with me (that I know of.)  My fears, although rational, are frustrating because I can’t identify a racist by sight.  Unless they’re wearing a MAGAt uniform or something, that

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Teeny Tiny House

Moving to the city cannot come soon enough, 11 days until I pick up the keys and go and explore my new resting place. It is hard to judge what it will look like with your own belongings inside it. When the real estate led all the hopefuls through there was still a tenant living there. So until I get the keys and do some measuring I will not know if the desk

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “If I like their race, how can that be racism?”

Look.  I’m telling you three times not to read this post if you’re not in a safe place mentally right now.  💜

I didn’t sleep last night.  I just lay in bed grinding my teeth.  It’s not nightmare avoidance, though (for once.)  I got a letter from the VA.  Part of me is in shock.  All of me is pissed off.  It’s not often I find myself wondering how the hell a person can be

Blog:The Secret Aspie- When you love with every part if your soul love hurts

Blog:The Secret Aspie- When you love with every part if your soul love hurts

Tonight my heart aches, it is lonely, I miss R, I miss his voice, I miss… Him.

If you think you cannot fall in love, at first sight, you are sadly mistaken, with R, it was his voice, everything else followed.

Each day that passes when I do not hear from him my heart hurts, and each day is an eternity. I try and fill my day with other things but there is

This is a re-post of an essay that originally appeared on Unstrange Mind November 10, 2015.

[image description: a photo of Dr. Paul K. Longmore. A white man with glasses, wearing a brown shirt with a collar. He has grey hair and a grey beard and mustache. His mouth is partially open as if speaking.]

Blog:Stranger Darker Better- What I Wish I'd Known Sooner

I got an ask on Tumblr asking me to talk about things I wish I’d known sooner. As is often the case for me, I rambled on longer than intended and this got long enough that I figured it deserved to be a real blog post. So, without further ado, here are somethings I wish I’d known sooner:

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Early days

At school I would watch the other children, I had my favourites who were nice to me. But I never played with anyone.

I felt too awkward and it was a struggle to speak to my own family let alone other children. There was one little boy when I was 9, he would always ask me in passing how many books I had read that day, smiling as he did so. It was well
