Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- Help?! WordPress inept

I write all my posts first on another writing based program on my computer before I copy and paste it to Word press. I don’t really add or edit anything on the section to add a blog post. When I post my blog it normally has issues with spacing after paragraphs and ends up looking like a unorganized disaster and probably makes it more difficult for followers or people to read. Some guesses I have

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- OCD, it's relation to Autism and Me…

Autism and Aspergers have a lot of associated disorders such as attention deficit disorder, (ADHD) depression, generalized anxiety disorder and others. One of the more common ones is Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD) and because it is one of the more common disorders and how it effects me I really wanted to post about it, so here we go… For those of you who may not know what Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is, OCD is basically a

Blog:Losing It Slowly- ComicCon T-13 hours=Butter scraped over too much Toast

This is how I feel today.  I am achy, nauseated, and exhausted.  I cannot tell if I am actually getting ill, or it’s all a byproduct of the overwhelming anxiety. I have planned and over planned my weekend to death, and my dad has completely waved my scheduling conflict.  I have managed to escape the day mostly uninjured, and am hopeful that I will be able to sleep tonight.

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- Quick! Everybody under the desk!

CW: Aftermath of SA, related triggers.

Fuck.  I haven’t pinpointed for certain what I did wrong to cause this round of hell.  Deep down, I suspect I know, but the reason pisses me off.  I had a birthday last month, and I ate like someone who doesn’t have autism or PTSD.  I thought once a year was sufficient moderation.  I was wrong.  Hence, pissed.  Welp.  Maybe this means I’m going through The Change, (still only

Blog:The Silent Wave- The Aspie gypsy

I’m feeling reminiscent today.  Maybe it’s because the calendar has swung around to the right marker in time.  Or maybe the temperature has reached a particular zenith.  I’m not sure, and might never be.

If you live in Canada, from Winnipeg on west, or you’ve traveled there in the summer in the past 40 years, you know me.  You don’t know me, but you know me.  You wouldn’t recognize my face, for we were always

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- Phoenix: Dawn Command – “What kills you makes you stronger.”

I’m looking for players for a game of Phoenix: Dawn Command in Langley, BC!

Do you like imaginative fantasy and exciting new RPGs? Do you want to try a novel game with no character sheets, no dice, and no experience point system, in which the only way to level up is to die? Me too!

If you’re a respectful human being who is local and would feel at home at an inclusive gaming table, you can

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Comiccon T-36 hours

So I have been managing my anxiety pretty well the last little bit.  And with anxiety for now, that is actually as good as it gets.  Today it fell apart.

I have photosensitivity, a mild headache, and am beyond tired.  I suddenly realized I let Comiccon creep up on me this year without any planning and now it is in 36 hours.  It doesn’t help that my schedule for the event has a major time

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- If they have individual personalities, I'm not sure we should be eating them.

I’m Alison Wonderland.  (It’s what my family often called me when I was growing up.)  I embrace it because I recognize it’s accuracy.  I do live in my own world.  It’s the only way I know how to be.  I connect with people who can accept me as I am.  Usually, it’s individuals who are steady enough within themselves to come a bit closer.  Close enough so I can hear their song.  My wonderland is a

Blog:Married: With Aspergers- #Autistic Resonance – Dancing to the Same Beat

“I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.” ― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

Almost all my friends are autistic: this wasn’t deliberate choosing on my part. No, there’s a deeper reason. My friends are the people I feel most comfortable around, the ones with whom I don’t have to hide or tone down aspects of myself.

Equally important, we get each other. We rarely have to

Blog:The Silent Wave- I was just trying to be friendly

Maybe I tried a little too hard.

Maybe I agreed a little too often.  Maybe I smiled a little too wide.  Maybe I laughed a little too loud. 

Maybe I hung around a little too long. 

 Maybe I said yes a little too eagerly.  Maybe I offered a little too much of myself.  Maybe I talked a little too much.  Maybe I shared a little too soon.  Maybe I was a little too honest/bold. 

 Maybe

Blog:Well Owl Be- Birthday post

I have been far too busy to keep up with an account of my life. I made it to NY on my motorcycle and am thoroughly convinced that I have a guardian angel. I got a flat tire during the second day. Not while I was going 85 down the highway but when I was stopped for gas. There was a great local shop that picked up the bike and got it fixed and got

Blog:Spectrum Women- Behaviour is Language ~ Renata Jurkevythz

In this insightful and thought provoking piece, Renata talks about how for her, learning languages (English being second to her native Portuguese) significantly compares to learning the innate social cues that non autistic individuals inherently know…

People are so quick to doubt my diagnosis of Asperger’s just because I “behave like a regular person” and “don’t look autistic”. This really bothers me! This doesn’t just happen with me, but with the vast majority of diagnosed

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- Speaking of velvet, have you ever gotten to pet a mole? They're v soft and velvety to the touch. We have them in our yard and occasionally one pops up and we have to rescue it from the cat so I found out they're soft.

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- I am grateful to have found you ! I have a lot of catching up to do , read and hear what you have to say, but for now the question I have after hearing your opinion about ABA is , what do you recommend for parents to do with their children when diagnosed at early age say 12 months? Since most parents are afraid and don't know what to do. How to best handle.
