I was dumped it looks like. Aspians and relationships just dont work. I was lucky to have 4 years with one of the best women alive. It kinda hurts, like every other time. I am blessed with the gift to disassociate. I dont know. I dont listen. Music helps. The sun will rise tomorrow.

I feel for you, man. Been there, done that. But I guess it's just something that happens. Best thing to do is, if theres no possibility of getting her back, just keep on living. Have a good attitude, find some things to occupy your time with. In time, you'll meet the next Best Woman Alive.

I saw the consellor today second visit. She seems helpful to me at the moment. I actually failed to mention it to her, so that must mean im fine. I am just acting as if I think. Doing what I normally would do. I am used to spending alot of time alone which im sure the lot of us identifys with. I think it's just the break in my everyday patten or change that upsets the balence. I'm just keeping my mind on school, working out alot. I think I will hit up the beach today. Hows you Kim? I hope well. Be good to yourselves Smile

Damn, that sucks it would be cool to meet you Chris. I will tell ya though. It seems the next meeting is two weeks from now. Every other Tuesday I think Kelly said. I have appointment then but I forget what time. Then I have statistics class then too. Talk about boredom. Statistics would fill that void in seconds flat I promise ya! Id love to go as it would be nice to learn coping tools to something I know so little about. Lately ive been using the symptoms to my advantage which there are many I have found so far. Unfortaneatly there are as many stumbling blocks too. Step forward win, lose or draw is all I know in the big picture. I dont like details. But take care and I cannot show my apreciation enough to you all for your compassion. Im still taking it in because its still so new to me I suppose.

14How is everyone? Empty Re: How is everyone? on Tue Sep 15, 2009 7:09 am

man of a million names


Yeah, it does suck. I'd love to get to go to one of those meetings, cause I've wanted to meet the people there for... since I met Kim. Oh, yeah, that sounds pretty boring. But hey, so long as you got some music, everything's aight. That's my main form of entertainment. Right now, I'm listening to "Pimpin'" by Hollywood Undead, suprisingly. I hardly ever listen to anything even closely related to rap, but they've got some BA rock and metal, so I just let it go through my MySpace playlist. Speaking of which, do you have a myspace?
But as far as coping skills go, I've got a lot of those. I've mostly developed them myself. Like, I hate having a song I don't like stuck in my head, because I have this weird paranoid delusion that people can read my mind (not so much anymore), and it's embarassing (still). So I've noticed that usually the last song I've listened to is usually the one I have in my head, unless I listened to another song more before it. I'm not so sure that's related directly to autism, but I'm sure that the delusion could be. So Whenever I have a problem that I haven't yet learned to cope with, I basically do a science experiment with it, and my conclusion is the coping skill. I'm not exactly sure that would work for you, but you might be able to try something self-propelled. A non-autistic to talk to is also usually a very good way of learning to cope with things, if you can manage to convert what they tell you about NTs into a coping skill.
As for the compassion, not only is it a trait that humans carry, any real human, but it's also a trait that friends carry, and offer to others without need of recompense. In other words, no thanks required Smile

No I used to have a myspace page. I think I forgot the password or somethin. My ex built it for me. Music does help Immensely. Hows everyone on this fine Friday?

I'm with you man. I have myspace, but I never use it. It's really kinda boring anyway. I love music myself... I like to let my MP3 player just play and play and play.... but then it makes it seem like I'm ignoring my family, so then I have to remember not to do that too much. Razz

We're doing just fine here, thanks for asking. How 'bout you? Very Happy Doing well, I hope?

I love myspace! i can't believe you people (not a discriminatory comment)! what do you mean myspace is boring! i betcha it wouldn't be if you were me! i've met some pretty damned interesting people on there! imma myspace addict!

but, ya, music is a "gift from the gods" as one of my myspace friends once said Suspect lol. imma BA guitar player. or at least i think i am, which is one thing that keeps me going. anybody else here play any music?

hey, I cut 1:20 off my 2 mile time today which makes it 15:03! and I got 19/43! and not only that, but I survived big chief hill! I did badass at the meet today hehe.

Great work my friend. I think I dont like myspace/twitter/facebook because others like it so much. I have a preconcieved notion anything others like will be stupid and pitiful. It has stayed with me since grade school id imagine. I meet interesting people at the beach from all walks of life all over the world when I feel social if that counts. Some good/bad scary , interesting wonderful/terifying people. These days when I go I keep to myself, however at times I get a wild hair and mess with the college kids. I say kids cause im in college but I am 28. Dont do that Chris get it out of the way as soon as posible. You wont regret it, I promise you that. take care. I am fine Kelly and glad you are well too. Thanks!!!!!!!!
