    Autistic Image In A Cracked Mirror


    #Asperger 's Syndrome #PDD -nos

    Forrest Bezotte, and others, I invite all of you to see how disturbed my Autistic self is by watching my previous recordings of and future live streaming video feeds at my YouTube channel; Indeterminate Origin. Those are real tears!


    Personal awareness?..

    Are we neurodivergents somehow extra proficient in being aware of oneselves of vairous characteristics of our everyday ehaviour, emotions, expressions etc' ? Is this a sign of us being more mindful and knowledgeable, or, on the contrary, *because* some of us are very aware of what is going on inside them, compared to the mainstream awareness of a neurotypical individual, this rather means that we are not actually affected by a special condition but rather only aware of what is going on in ourselves (as opposed to others) and there isn't much more to that?

    I am always confused and discouraged...does me being aware only speak for my good awareness of self, or does it cobfirm my diversity? #Asperger #Autism #BipolarDisorder #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder


    Empathy can be frightening

    Empathy can be frightening if you do not really have the capacity or the self-discipline to regulate your emotional involvement in what and who sorrounds you. When your mind is vulnerable, and such are your feelings, and you are easily impressed and impulsive in your reactions and untrained in creating emotional distance, empathy can literally become a weapon you might consciously or subconsciously turn against yourself and lacerate yourself with, instead of using what you learned from the other to emotionally grow. You become too much involved in that other, you attempt to become one and it drags you into an insanely powerful, destructive spiral dragging you down in a breathtaking speed into the abyss of uncontrollable, interrelated emotions and perceptions, all demanding a super-human effort to disconnect oneself from.
    It is not only addictive and dangerous. It is deadly. It makes you substitute yourself with what you perceive from the other and want to see (and feel!) of them.
    Your soul, as vulnerable and impressive and tender as it is, is not predestined to carry such heavy weight. You will collapse if giving more than you can carry yourself, and no one profit from it, nor save you from your misery.
    Just don't. #Asperger #Autism #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #BipolarDisorder



    I am so hyperfixated on a person and no clue how to deal with it even though I have this trait since early childhood. Am diagnosed with Asperger's, Bipolar and BPD. What to do? I am so ashamed of bothering that specific person all the time even though they are very accepting of my attachment to them..... #Asperger #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #BipolarDisorder

    So I just had to leave my house because one of my neighbors started playing loud music just as I was trying to get some much needed rest for a get together we will be having later today. It was perfectly quiet until I laid down for a nap. This has happened countless times before. I’m just getting sick and tired of this battle. It’s been years. Wish we could move but we can’t because I’m disabled and not on disability with a family of four. My parents are both in the hospital with Covid. Have nobody to talk to. My sister doesn’t talk to me so even while we’re going through all of this she’s pretending she doesn’t have a brother. Lost my uncle to Covid this morning. #Asperger #Depression #checkinonme #IfYouFeelHopeless #nobodyunderstands

    How you talk to your Self is important

    The downward spiral of shame and guilt can be perpetuated by our own internal dialogues. Do you talk to yourself as you would to a good friend? If you harbor guilt and shame, try to let some go today. Tell your Selfie- I love you. I am proud of you. You didn't choose this health condition but, you can handle it and you are doing great.

    What does your Selfie need to hear today?

    Wacky Wednesday

    Every day will have a different theme to End The Stigma:

    Medication Monday

    Tuesdays are For Friends

    Wacky Wednesdays

    Therapy Thursdays

    Family Fridays

    Society Saturday and

    Selfie Sunday

    Ok, so what's Wacky got to do with Ending the Stigma? We need humor relief midweek. We live the stigma and it can be hard. Wackiness helps.

    What wacky things do you do to help you smile?

    I wear mismatched, silly socks. I have pizza socks, unicorn socks, alien socks. Sometimes they are hidden under my pants and sometimes I rock them with a dress.
