Blog:The Secret Aspie- I feel very much like a spoilt brat

Noo… not really but it made you look didn’t it?…lol.

In a way, I feel like doing a bit of pouting but I am tired… lol

Rashid is working all weekend, and earlier when he messaged I was out. We have not spoken for a few days, and I need my fix. I am such a fool.

I went out tonight and had a chill chat for a few hours with a young pup. OMG

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Atypical-A word stuck in my head

Has anyone else watched the new show on Netflix, Atypical?  While some say it isn’t an accurate representation of autism or complain that their child isn’t like this, I have to say I was very impressed overall. Yes, it is a very narrow view, of a single teenager with an autism spectrum disorder, but thats the thing with ASD and people in general EVERYONE is a little bit different.  A second complaint was that while

overexplainingautistic:

[Three selfies using a mirror and big camera of an androgynous short-blue-hair’d person wearing a pale blue “I love someone who is Autistic (it’s me)” shirt. 

The first is a simple shot with a flat but genuine smile, with the shirt’s text clear to read, though mirrored in the photo. 

The second shows the person holding a white and aqua fidget cube attached to a belt loop, and looking at it. 

The third is

Blog:Yes, That Too- Diagnostic arbitrariness and NO, not everyone is “somewhere on the spectrum”

Blog:Yes, That Too- Diagnostic arbitrariness and NO, not everyone is “somewhere on the spectrum”

[“Somewhere on the spectrum” here is “somewhere on the autism spectrum,” or variants on the theme of claiming everyone to be a little bit autistic.]

Autism diagnosis can be pretty arbitrary. There isn’t a blood test. There are genes that are associated with an increased probability of being autistic, but that’s not the same thing as a gene “for autism” or a genetic test. We don’t really ask about the internal experience of being autistic, either.

Blog:Married: With Aspergers- I Am #Autistic, Not Your Bogeyman

So we have conservative pundit George Will in Newsweek calling Trump “Socially Autistic” to describe his total lack of empathy or compassion. No. Just no.

After my first response (“Fuck you!” for anybody who wanted to know) I remembered to breathe and put a little bit more thought into a statement about this latest example of autism being used as an insult, a slur. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem whatsoever with Trump

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Calm reflection

I’ve not been well this week. 

I left work early on a Monday simply overwhelmed both mentally and physically. Too much noise, too much activity, too much…..everything. 

I felt a sensation of panic. I was trapped, hemmed in; everything felt claustrophobic. 

My chest was like a huge bruise aching and throbbing, my stomach was on fire, I had a headache, was dizzy and huge waves of nausea kept crashing into me pushing me further off

[Image: Two selfies of me in a pink camisole and a teal hoodie. Both photos are overlaid with a snapchat filters that add makeup and make me look unreal and doll-like. In the first, I am resting my chin on my hand and looking off and down the side, and pink hearts float above my head. In the second, I am looking at and smiling at the camera and it looks like I am

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “And now, it's payback time. Pottery Barn is in for a world of hurt.”

I’m scattered today.  I may as well apologize now.  This series of ramblings is going to be a doozy, I can already tell.  I finished reading Reckless:  My Life as a Pretender, by Chrissie Hynde.  I loved it.  I stayed up all night reading it.  I had to take lots of breaks to look up colloquialisms from her youth.  (I can speak 1960’s now.)  I took notes because I’ve never heard of a lot of

Blog:The Silent Wave- New blog!

Hello, my pretties!  I am pleased to announce that I have set up an additional blog.

For the record, this blog, The Silent Wave, is not going anywhere.  🙂  I will continue to create new content as I am struck by the inspiration, and all of that content will still be posted here.

The new blog, “Laina’s Collection“, was inspired by my incredible Neurosibling Devereaux Frazier, who writes “An Aspergian’s Chemical Romance“; you see, he

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- Autistic people can have friends

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- Autistic people can have friends

realsocialskills:

One reason I started writing this blog is that I got tired of seeing social skills programs teach autistic people that they have to become normal in order to have friends.

It’s not true. There are a lot of autistic people who have friends without becoming remotely normal. Oddness and friendship are entirely compatible.

You can be autistic, seem autistic, and have friends who like you and enjoy your company.

Some people won’t like

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Quandary

I am in a quandary…

The only way I can continue to do university the next four years is if I live on campus during the semesters and live with Ruben during summer. Now Ruben and Ricky have said that it is ok. But is a degree what I really want? I love uni… I love the free thinking… I love how it challenges me. But it is a lot of money to owe.

Blog:The Silent Wave- Dear Neurotypical friends…

I may have a social disability.  I may say or do things that seem strange to you or put you off or leave you wondering.

This could–and sometimes does–lead to misunderstandings and unnecessary hurt feelings, on either side–or both sides.

I want to be your friend.  It’s just that aspects of life that the general population may take for granted as natural and intuitive are, for me, anything but.  Aspects like communication (whether verbal or

Blog:The Secret Aspie- I am here

Yes, yes I am.

Here when I should be studying, which I am but not with all my concentrating. I did not get much sleep last night as it was interrupted at 2am by chatting with Rashid. What is it about him that makes a jolt of electricity go through me when I see he has sent me a message, or even just thinking about him. I feel so emotionally excited that I feel on

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “I'm buying the Frogger machine. Now the torch will burn forever.”

It’s a melancholy day.  I’m sad Tom Petty has passed.  I’ve been listening to his music all day.  The massacre in Las Vegas has me in a full body clench.  I don’t understand how anything could lead to such an act.  Nothing is more precious than life.  How can any circumstance negate this fact?  There are no words or gestures of empathy to soothe.  Just the ugly, pervasive knowledge it’s only slightly more horrific than the

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Travel Panic

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Travel Panic

So I have booked an oil change, car wash, car inspection, verified my reservation, checked the parking situation, plotted my stops.  My trip is on the 13th of October.  10 days and I have already gone completely crazy. I spent the night tossing and turning with the idea that I might end up getting hurt or sick before my trip.  Or during my trip. So far compulsive listmaking is taking the edge off.

Let me touch you intimately…let me slide my fingers over your body, and my nails scrape upon your skin, goosebumps rising where I touch…My mouth, lips, and tongue will wander where they will marking a trail of my design upon your flesh.

 I will take you where there will be no tomorrow, your mind, and will I make my own. A design that I will forge out of your blood, lust, and tears.
