Blog:Pharaohs World!- My Top Ten Films (with a tiny bit of cheating)

So, here we are, at the start of a new series probably entitled “Things you didn’t want to know about me!”. 

My top ten films, in no particular order. My desert island blu-rays! 

Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Told you there would be some cheating. I know it’s three films but I don’t really have a favourite. I never enjoyed the book because I found it (them ?) far too dense and descriptive when I

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Blurb! Living in the fog.

This is weird. 

And I do mean weird. Strange. Odd. All of those. 

I’m having new treatment for fibromyalgia. So far it’s done, partially, what was intended in that the fatigue, that gnawing muscle ache has reduced. 

So far, so good. 

I can still feel the pain in my joints and there’s still a lot of stiffness, a dull tiredness in my limbs  and although I physically feel a bit brighter I am still very

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Something wicked this way comes

I was dragged back. 

I wasn’t getting through. I just wasn’t connecting. The frustration was growing and I felt helpless so, once more, I am here. 

I was so angry. In fact the frustration was so intense it was like a physical pain clawing at my insides. I felt my head was about to explode and flashing lights flew before my eyes. 

So what had caused this ?. 

The self destructive nature of the Autistic

Blog:The Other Side- Soft clothes day. #autism

A brain aches.

But this we know. You and I are different.

We look the same.

And it’s a now you see me, and now you don’t.

Because I am fluent in passing.

This is my great skill. I look like you. I sound like you.

And when I am tired there is an introvert model – on social mode – which  dies inside to flick the switch.

Ridiculously, I walk home quite earnestly desirous of

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- I can't believe that you saw her before me.

I realized I don’t code most of the time anymore.  I think this is a good thing because I laugh more.  It feels like I broke an addiction because I get random urges to start new projects all the time.  I thought I would have a harder time letting go.  It’s mind boggling how much time I’ve spent writing code on a computer in my lifetime.  It’s probably just under the time I’ve spent sleeping.

Blog:Life Asper Margo- My One And Only

Anyone who knows me well knows that banal things make me laugh the most. Someone being silly can have me laughing nonstop making others wonder how something so ridiculous can be so entertaining. What excites most people bores me: sports, clubs/bars, beaches, the high life, and car toys. I need something deeper in my life: meaning. Everyone needs meaning but not everyone actively pursues it. I’ve been feeling very unfulfilled and unaccomplished for the longest

Blog:Married: With Aspergers- #Autism Eclipse – The Dark Side of Passing

A Facebook post earlier got me thinking about the effort we expend in passing as non-autistic. The lengths we go to to conform. And what that costs us.

What is “Passing”?

Passing is a term deriving from the phrase to pass for, as in being accepted as something you’re not. In this case it’s when an autistic person isn’t seen as autistic, when the typical, instinctive behaviours are successfully masked.

It’s acting, mimicking the behaviours

Oh man, now you’ve got me going!

Firstly, cats stim. They purr, swish their tails and knead their paws against pillows, blankets, and other soft things. Many cats actively seek out sensory experiences, like listening to birds singing, lying in a sunbeam, rolling against the grass,

Blog:The Silent Wave- 'We' and 'us' vs 'I' and 'me'

When I first realized that I’m on the Asperger’s/autism spectrum, it became paramount to find out more about autism as it relates to females, and those of adult age at that. 

I already knew what the Powers That Be wanted me to know about autism.  I knew what the charity organizations were touting.  Their “awareness” campaign worked, for their purposes.  The images of the most “severe cases” were etched into my mind. 

In discovering my

Blog:Paginated Thoughts- Expecting ways of communicating to define an Autistic person

Feedback is welcomed, but please see the bottom of the post first.*

Autistics have largely argued that no one should assume we are alike. Our differences include communication styles, external presentations, or supports needed. Being human like anyone else, we also differ in goals, interests, and hobbies. We’re all still Autistic, but we need others to stop basing all their assumptions on that. In particular, people make assumptions from communication styles. Some of us communicate

Blog:Married: With Aspergers- Family, Like Home, Is A Feeling

Some places feel right. They’re comfortable, they support you and suit your needs. They feel like home, even if you don’t live there. There’s even an expression, to “feel at home” that expresses this emotion of being where you belong.

Belonging is the key. The word itself derives from an Old English root with the sense of being held. That can be ownership (the book belongs to me), but it can also mean being within

I’m going through an intense and exciting time in my life.

Like most (all?) humans, I am greatly enriched by any and all support during this intense time of great change. And I am blessed to have so much support and so much love from others.

Blog:My Anxious Suppositions- Stuck

I am currently in a sticky situation. I accepted a job offer and now they seem to be a bit sketchy. I’ve got an unsettling gut feeling that I should back out, but can’t seem to. I tried to let the lady down easy, but she is not accepting my resignation. Now I’m in too deep to back out. Not quite sure what to do.

I think I am just going to fulfill my last
