Been good to hear from any adult ASD diagnosed women in this forum... or does anyone know any good sites for ASD women? What are your experiences?
...previous thread clogged as now months into its lifespan) ,.....
People are so complicated... So unpredictable...
Guess it isn't so much me having problems with others, rather others having problems with me and then me having problems with that. Ho hum.
Yes they are,,,so you feel that you need them though...there are some people here happy with being just Themselves...and others than crave others
Spot on! Spot on! So people need educating, yes? But how do you do that?
Yes that is very true. If people understood everything would be sooo much easier
I'm not trying to educate anyone because in the worst case people get rid of me, so I'll keep this to myself and try to keep quiet when something really outrages me and nobody wants to know, and appear sociable when that's required. Maybe I'm a coward or really stupid but it has to work out this time.
This is obviously a conversation that isn't worn out. Personally I'm quite convinced that menopause is what has tipped me over the edge and made my thinking and behaviour recognisably autistic and ADHD-istic.
It's still a hammer blow but it feels like there's a chance of being kinder to myself in the future. Maybe we are the research...
Hey you! I think the Aspie traits have always been there but the hormone ouch has meant that our usual coping and masking strategies can’t cope so well with it x well put Spotty xx be kind to yourself xx
And you, I think I look for affirmation too from anyone and everyone but I'm starting to think that if I had an income I would be happier completely alone. A bit Georgia O'Keefe. My insecurities are centered around money unfortunately.
Morning Spotty, I have the same thoughts myself...but it seems a shame that we feel that to be happy and safe that we have to live secluded lives.
I lived on my own (with my son) for a couple of years and was lucky enough to be financially independent...I had my own space and lived in one of a secluded string of terraces which were all occupied by single women...we respected each others space but also looked out for each other. This was after my first marriage broke down....it was a good healing space.
