Blog:The Secret Aspie- City living

It’s just a little bit disconcerting when through your kitchen window you can hear the guy in the apartment building next door groaning because he is doing his morning stretch in his kitchen. LMAO.

At least that is what I hope he is doing!

Blog:Unstrange Mind- Barriers and Supports to Autistic Success

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about success and failure, how they are measured, and what leads us to achieve our goals. Last week, I recorded a two-part casual chat about why I

Blog:Planet Autism- “Public Body Behavioural Policies Discriminate Against Autistics”

Blog:Planet Autism- “Public Body Behavioural Policies Discriminate Against Autistics”

 Let me start by saying, that I believe the policies in question, are being widely misused against any complainant that public bodies want to fob-off.  This is so, because in the UK there is a cover-up culture among the public sector and arbitrary labelling is used to deflect complainants, they can simply claim that a complainant’s behaviour is unreasonable, or vexatious.  And once labelled so, it’s on record and gives them carte blanche to ignore

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Broken Promises

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Broken Promises

With our talk about reliability and communication, R had said he would call again last night. I brought to his attention the last time he said that it didn’t happen. He said “I promise” and of course he didn’t call. Sighs…

What does that say about him as a person that he throws his promises around like confetti? I know he would never treat a business partner in such a way so why

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “I hate anyone who ever had a pony when they were growing up.”

I passed the kidney stone early this morning.  I’ve been dancing and singing ever since.  I forgot about the post-kidney stone euphoria.  It’s fabulous, even though I’m so tired I could cry.  I know I’ll be sleeping well tonight.  Imagine me with a massive grin on my face and a spring in my step.

Thanks to everyone who made thoughtful comments and provided suggestions.  (I feel like I should have a statue to

Blog:The Secret Aspie- He walked into my heart like he always belonged there, took down my walls and lit my soul on fire.

R and I spoke last night and time just stops, it slows down and everything just fades away, and nothing matters but Us.

We spoke about a couple of things that I was not happy about, one being his reliability and communication, and he said he understood and promised to try harder which is all I can ask with his work being paramount at the moment. He has been about his work for

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “I wouldn't drink anything called Moland.”

I’m still trying to pass this damn kidney stone.  I’ve not fought one this stubborn since my first, when I was 18 and in the Army.  I had surgery to extract it, then had a stent installed.  I remember my roommate telling me I looked like I was in pain all the time.  That’s when the pain became conscious, and it explained why I was peeing blood.

I didn’t become alarmed until the

Santa

This is what you will bring me for Christmas this year and if you do not there will be consequences! You will be severely punished and I will be mightily displeased with you!

I want a slave Santa and find below the list of requirements I demand in a slave.

He must be muscle-bound with a washboard stomach and six foot tall not an inch shorter. He must have the face of Adonis and

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Some Things You Just Don't Say

When I was with my ex-wife there were some things I just didn’t tell her because they just would have caused her pain and grief, and would have destroyed her, some of her personalities were not nice, they did not have boundaries like mine did. They were not honest, they manipulated people and the situations they were in, they were narcissistic and they were just downright mean and some even cruel. She even had

Blog:Paginated Thoughts- The shape(s) of narratives that spill and flow over neat lines and boxes

Resonance and representation in The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water (2017) and its relationship to disability narratives is undeniably complicated and at times flawed.

I mean…I think there definite is room for criticism. It’s unavoidably a problematic story.

But then, some of us have had problematic lives.

— Emily Paige Ballou (@epballou) March 4, 2018

Some of us who identify with parts of the film and characters, have, as Emily points out on Twitter,

I was thinking this morning about how to explain to a friend of mine what the difference is between me before integration and me after. And it sort of goes like this – before I was a plate of salad with all the salad pieces separate but you could mix it up a little but then still separate the pieces if you wanted, now I am the salad totally mixed up but mashed

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Down, down, deeper and down.

I feel utterly dejected today.

Utterly miserable.

Utterly bereft.

Utterly lost.

I don’t know what I am doing and every little thing is just causing me pain. Every noise, every movement, every little thing.

I feel agitated, anxious, stressed and so so down.

I feel lost.

I am trying to work but it’s like a bad dream. It’s not quite real. It’s not substantial but more ethereal; a floating, wispy sense of reality, just so

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Feeling dysfunctional today

I feel very dysfunctional today.

Very…… disjointed.

Detached. Removed.

I don’t think the weathers helped. It’s not that I mind snow per se but that I mind being hemmed in, being trapped and being unable, even if I don’t want to, to get out.

Being inside has led to a period of reflection and the trouble with reflection is that when I look at myself I’m not happy with what I see.
