An informal thread for all misfired and miswired women on the spectrum...,(and guests). A new thread as we can chat away but are not so good tidying up after ourselves....too busy being awesome..,,
This is a new iteration of many long and warm and welcoming contributions. This is a happy and supportive place x
You rebel you xx
Hello Disallowed Cynosure, I am new to all of this and am pretty much just muddling through all this forum stuff as I've never done it before but I feel sure that the main thing is this is a space where we do not judge particularly on stuff like grammar etc which although is indeed important I think it would be a shame to let any concerns about those kind of errors get in the way of joining in. This seems to be a pretty welcoming place so I sure you can "dip" in and out how and when you want.....I know I have read an awful lot more than I have "joined in".....welcome anyway xx
these questionnaires must be rather shy - mine also went missing the first time round...
We do fit...because we frame ourselves in ND terms not NT....,we fit here because we know who we are,,.we don’t fit there...because it is too difficult at times to explain or to listen and comprehend
ha ha I think you might be right....mine didn't exactly go missing...but my results went on the missing list for a while so I had a week long "cliff hanger" moment while I waited to find out whether I was going to be referred on for "formal diagnosis"
yeah, I am beginning to realise that now.....it is such a liberating feeling because for the first time in my life I feel more at peace and it is because I am not banging my head a against a brick wall trying to understand/listen/fit in with all the NT mischief around that we are navigate on a daily basis....I am kind of picking my battles more in that respect.....
Exactly so. We have these threads as a welcome and a place to be ourselves. Welcome Queenie Redshoes. I also first joined in with a thread started by Ellie for women with asd. It felt an ok place to start and am so glad I did. D.C. it is supposed to be linear but quite often it becomes ravelled and so when this becomes too much we start a new one. And occasionally the back tracking does occur which is why Ellie was telling me not to mess it up! And so this is a continuation of the previous women’s threads. We quite like making up new tiitles it’s part of our individuality I suppose. And no grammar etc isn’t the priority, feeling at ease to be ourselves is. I’m not great at live chat either which is why it’s quite common for more than one person to reply at the same time and mine to arrive after someone else’s! Anyway good evening everyone
I'm glad I joined in too...thanks everyone....ha ha it's good to know I am not the only one who is likely to mess it up as I am sure that back tracking is something I will definitely be prone to doing as once something catches my eye I can go off on a tangent - but hey! I guess that is all part of the fun...
It’s part of who I am...and I choose to celebrate it x
Thank you Ellie and those joining in.. once again your thread has made me smile and feel part of something special. Time for x
