Blog:The Secret Aspie- Quiet Week

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Quiet Week

Yep as the title says, very quiet, no play, no R, and concentrating on study. I had a major freak out last night after getting feedback on an essay draft. The only thing I’d done properly was the reference list. Pandora had to do some serious coaching to stop me from having a full fall out. As it was some tears were wept, but I dusted myself off and spent the rest of the night

Blog:Pharaohs World!- I know, I know

I know..

I meant to be more proactive. Then they increased my meds.

Result. Welcome to Fuzzyland, the land where everything is soft, but not in a nice way. Soft as in a sickly sweet, nauseatingly gooey way; a way which envelops you and makes the outside world indistinct and dream like.

You might think that actually sounds okay but when you are Autistic and thrive in being in control, it’s not.

I panic. I

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Beliefs

One thing that R and I have both been doing is breaking down who we are and rebuilding ourselves. In August it will have been a year since we met. I could have sworn it was longer but my experience of times is skewered because of D.I.D.

We both had trust issues about the other sex, myself from childhood sexual abuse and the way men in my life had treated me most of my life.

Blog:Tania A. Marshall: M.Sc.- Do Autistic or Neurodiverse people attract abusive people? Yes

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A recent FAQ and theme in the thousands of Neurodivergent people I have worked with is, “Do I have an S (sociopath), a P (psychopath), an N (narcissist) or an L (loser) on my forehead???” Yes, I have seen this time and time again.

Neurodivergent people are more susceptible to these types of toxic people then Neurotypical people. Having said that, neurotypical people find it challenging to associate and untangle themselves

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Dinner and coffee

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Dinner and coffee

This week has seen me stepping out of my comfort zone and it is getting easier. I met a bull yesterday for drinks and we talked for about two hours, he had never done anything really kinky but wished to explore being a bull and doing submissive acts.

It’s interesting getting to know people who are first getting into d/s. Some people just see it as being more adventurous in the bedroom and it is

Blog:The Silent Wave- Making friends with shadows [autistic poetry]

Blog:The Silent Wave- Making friends with shadows [autistic poetry]

Perhaps part of my cocooning that I had mentioned in my last post has to do with exploring darkness.  Maybe it has to do with utilizing some of the pent-up creative energy that my brain can’t seem to streamline into something more outwardly productive.  I have felt unfocused, perpetually drained.  Although this sounds bad, I’m not sure it is; there’s a time for everything, of course, and resting is no exception.  But I’m ready to

Blog:Mama Pineapple- This machine needs a tune-up.

A section from Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine No. 2

Right now, I’m struggling to overcome autistic inertia in order to write about my struggles with autistic inertia.

It hasn’t escaped the attention of some of my readers/followers/friends that I haven’t written or drawn anything for quite a while. Two whole months in fact. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to write things; I’ve had plenty of ideas for topics I’d love to write about. I’ve even

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Coffee Date back dated to February

I was utterly forgetful today, shocking to you I know. I was supposed to meet someone and pick up a textbook this afternoon and I totally forgot and then was late picking it up when I realised then I followed this up by being an hour late to a coffee date with my sister, which was not too bad as she was just at home but on the way I took the wrong turn

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Date with a Sissy

So I met Sissy and over dinner, we chatted and got to know each other. Just a nice guy with a family and grown-up kids, a grandfather actually, lol and at 45 no less. It made me think of my three and I am glad they are not having children yet.

After, I brought him back to my place for a little play and while he had offered to be a bull and that

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Uh…

I miss R, I am tired and stressed, I am being lax-a-daisy with my study and I want my place back to myself at night. I love M but I am looking forward to them going home tomorrow.

I haven’t gone to the gym either and I feel fat and unmotivated, not a good mindset in combination with study either.

Supposedly I am meeting Sissy tomorrow for drinks and dinner and even that does not

Blog:The Silent Wave- (My) Autism ~ Stripping the pipelines

I suppose I’ve been in sort of a cocoon lately.  To transform into what, I don’t quite know yet.  I’m not even exactly certain that that’s what I’ve been doing.  But, that’s what it feels like at times.  Alexithymia is multi-dimensional, I guess; I’m not sure it’s limited to emotions.  In fact, it might pertain to multiple areas of thought and feeling.  Especially when thoughts and feelings blur.

Thoughts these days.

I’m also not sure

Blog:The Other Side- The art world is Social

Blog:The Other Side- The art world is Social

The title for this blog post is a quote which comes from an article published by Shape Arts called How to Get an Exhibition. It’s an article “adapted to suit disabled artists and sit alongside Shape’s own resources…”

I’ll quote a fuller excerpt,

“The art world is Social and I’m capitalising that because frankly you’re not getting anywhere making art in isolation. No-one is going to come knocking if no-one knows who you are. You

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Labels

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Labels

There is something about not fitting yourself into a label that defies those around you. From inside the womb your parents and Dr’s label you, you are labelled by your gender. And as we grow it does not stop there, in our childhood we are labelled bossy, mean, bully, crybaby. We are labelled by our looks and what society thinks is important such as handsome, beautiful, pretty, effeminate, masculine,  ugly, old, young. In a

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Sleep

Sleep has been just about non existent for me, I was awake late till 12 or later and awake staring at the ceiling at 3 am. It is now 5 am and I have given up on the Sandman, bastard that he is.

The thing is with all the wonderful sleep I’ve been getting the past week of averaging 10 hours I thought that was going to continue, alas no.
