Blog:The Talentless Liar- Karma Police

Blog:The Talentless Liar- Karma Police

What an odd title I have chosen for this post.  And yet I can think of nothing better to encompass the feelings I have at recent events.  Perhaps this is the first sign of my sense of validity starting to fracture…  (I wouldn’t be surprised, what with illness and issues at work catching up with me.)  My confidence is crashing. 

I have just sent an email eloquently backing out of the post-interview process for a job

Blog:Yes, That Too-

Blog:Yes, That Too-

This semester, I’m taking a class about Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). There are videos. I do something like liveblogging while watching them, just into Open Office. Now the results are here. So here’s the video: Augmentative and AlternativeCommunication (AAC): Evidence-based Principles and Practice. And here’s what I wrote while I watched it: Video defines AAC as “the use of customized methods and devices to supplement a person’s ability to communicate” [In class we

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Lost Again

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Lost Again

I know other bloggers will understand when I say I have attachment issues. My parents were never there for me emotionally. My father abusive and my mother totally oblivious.

Children were something you had because it was expected of you. You fed and watered them, supplied all the physical needs and once they were old enough sent them on their way. Because of the abuse and autism, I never felt attached to any of my

Blog:The Secret Aspie- An Unfinished Story

I guess the writing was on the wall but neither I or Rashid could see it.

At the end of the day we both got burnt and I do not regret one thing that I did because it lead me here.

Maybe I should explain what happened as this will give me the closure that he refused to give me.

He was a slave who approached me for LTR 24/7.

He also refused to give

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “Under no circumstances is ink to be used in this office!”

I had to break down and buy something that probably makes money for the evil Koch brothers.  They own practically everything, it seems.  Nevertheless, I hope they get nada from today’s purchase.  I ordered prescription eyeglasses online again.  (I’ve given up on getting in at the VA.)  At least I’m a more informed buyer now.  I know they’re practically disposable in quality up front.  I’ve decided I’m okay with that.  🙃

I’m still waiting for

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Self care : Failng myself

You’d think it would be easy wouldn’t you ?. A grown man taking care of himself. 

But its not. 

I’ve come away from the doctors feeling very down. Down with myself. 

Because I’m useless. 

No, I don’t mean that, not in the “ I can’t do anything right “ sense but in the sense that my ability to look after myself is severely impaired. 

It’s not because I’m lazy or I can’t be bothered but

Blog:Well Owl Be- I'll be Bach

I think things are falling into place…

I have had a headache since Saturday. It’s so hard to wake up in the morning and feel your head pound before you even sit up. I’m trying to deal though.

This morning I felt like Bach. I started this Prelude 

The thing I like about Bach is that there is always a pattern, a puzzle, somewhere in that what seems like stream of consciousness of notes. It’s

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Panic Attacks

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Panic Attacks

So I am on the end of a panic attack while I am writing this, ironically a few hours after saving an article on panic attacks to blog about tomorrow.  An article on cracked written by someone who actually has them gives the best description ever. Including why exercise and breathing exercises often cause as much panic as the relieve.

I say this is ironic because exercise is what has me on here right now.

Blog:The Silent Wave- Another face [autistic poetry]

(I wrote this in the summer of 1995, while listening to the soothing contemporary sounds of Canadian artist Mae More; she had just released her “Dragonflies” album and I was enamored at first listen, particularly the song “Watermark” (audio-only via MySpace, or another (better) audio-only source; just click on “listen” in the right column), which occurred when I was walking with my sister through a Calgarian mall, of all places.  Right there, amongst the walkways

Blog:Paginated Thoughts- The Judgment about “What Counts” as Sexual Assault

Blog:Paginated Thoughts- The Judgment about “What Counts” as Sexual Assault

This post goes into detail of an instance of non-rape sexual assault in the first paragraph. 

———-

In high school, one semester, a girl in gym class kept stroking my legs – well above my shins. She sat in the bleachers below me. I told her to stop, several times: it was uncomfortable and I hated and still hate being touched. She cooed at me and mocked my discomfort. I told the gym teacher, and

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “George and I will miss your company.”

The Other Pill

With all the infamous misogynists being called out on their horrific behavior, I’ve been feeling lots of things.  Anger, of course.  I’m also proud of the people who are coming forward to share their experiences as a result.  Since humans aren’t too keen on allowing their fellow humans to maintain their free will, I figured I’d create a solution in keeping with this mindset, (even if it’s just art.)

Wouldn’t

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “So now you're going to keep going out with her for spite?”

I had an incident while on break at work today.  It involved a bee.  I’ve been stung before (as a kid.)  It was more alarming than painful.  I’m not allergic.   However, for some reason I behave as if being stung by a bee will instantly lead to my painful death.  The bee buzzed close to my ear, then hovered near my head.  That was all the signal I needed.

I ran to escape, and

Blog:Life with Aspergers- Do People with Asperger's syndrome feel pain?

In movies and television shows, characters with Asperger’s syndrome are often portrayed as feeling very little emotionally or physically. It’s also quite common people to suggest that a character who shows little emotion or sensitivity to have “Asperger’s-like” traits.  In Star Trek, there are characters like Spock, Data, Seven Of Nine and the Doctor who, while not “Asperger’s” as such are often referred to as “Asperger-like” in their behaviour.   In the big bang theory, Sheldon

I didn’t like the last design, so I changed it.  (Sorry for not giving advanced warning.)  I’m also working on an additional blog, but it’s nowhere near ready for sharing.  I’ve decided to focus more on my journey with autism on this blog, and the other will center on my creative interests.  I’ll share the URL when I finish adding a bit of content.  The new blog will include sharing what I’ve learned from

Blog:The Secret Aspie- No Pain

The rain falls outside and for the first time in my life, it holds no fear. None, just a waterfall of sound. Comforting and beautiful.

So much has happened the last few days that I cannot begin to say. I feel a bit like a new baby’s blanket. All soft, clean and unblemished. Pure.

All the pain from my past is gone. I have actually let it go. The realisation of holding onto it was

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Nothing to say

I’ve stopped tweeting since very early the other morning. 

I’ve stopped because it’s not actually making me feel either more involved in the “community” again (and I noted we’ve been fighting again…) and because, as the aforementioned fighting actually demonstrates, nobody really listens!.

I’ve noted several newbies come and go. Of course the reasons for their disappearance may be due to circumstances beyond their control or any number of factors but it would be a

Blog:Well Owl Be- the mess

I do think I quite understand the term “hot mess” now.

it is quite a hot mess.  my life, that is.

I will have foot surgery in November.  As a dancer, dance teacher, mother, caregiver…this terrifies me.

My husband is in and out of the house, sometimes in his apartment -the apartment as he would rather it be called…sometimes here.

I will write more in a few days time.

I am well.
