    Aspie Cymru

    Hi Peeps I've started my own Welsh language YouTube channel; Aspie Cymru. On it I will be discussing Aspergers etc. and my perspective on things which are associated with autism. Any posts I make about this channel will remain in one topic, as to avoid cluttering and confusion. Also, sorry for potentially posting this in the wrong thread, I wasn't sure which one to choose; couldn't find a dedicated thread/topic for posting such content - my bad if there is Anyway, this is my first video And this is the accompanying blurb Cynnig fi ar drio creu adnoddau Cymraeg ar gyfer codi ymwybyddiaeth o awtistiaeth yng Nghymru. Gobeithio fydd hyn o fudd i bobol. Unrhyw cwestiynau neu sylwadau? Gadewch nhw ar waelod y dudalen Diolch am wylio. Parch a heddwch x This is my attempt at creating Welsh language resources to raise awareness about autism in Wales. I hope that this will be of some benefit or comfort etc. to people. Any questions or comments? Leave them at the bottom at the page Thanks for watching. Respect and peace x It is important that resources are available in different languages (when possible) and that's one of the reasons why I have chosen to do this. It is not my intention to take over from anyone else or to "step on anybody's toes". There isn't anybody else "out there" doing this in Welsh, so I thought "why not?". So,I'm giving it a go.

    V.I.P membership

    I've mentioned this before, and it's not clear whether others would like to be V.I.P members if it were introduced. This would be a paid membership where those who pay actually get something in return instead of just donating. In this case, it would be: * Being able to edit posts for longer after creating them. * Upload larger file size avatars. * Being able to start conversations with more people than non-V.I.P members. * Access to a V.I.P lounge. And maybe more. Here's an idea; Those who currently have the Koby's friend status, having donated, would have the option of upgrading for free or being given a free trial.
  3. One of our members has suicidal depression and can't get to a therapist on weekdays, nor find one who works on weekends.

    Communication cards

    This is a pack of thirteen cards, one identification and twelve communication cards to help explain things in situations where those with autism might not be able to do so. Would @Willow like to create her own version for the U.K market with pictures of "the girl in the panda hat" instead of Princess Aspien. Willow Hope instead of Chloe Hayden could write personal letters to buyers of the U.K version. The U.K version, if done, should be available in Gaelic, Welsh and maybe other languages (such as French) in addition to English.
  5. HEY Dont be afraid of text length. It may not even be interesting but i really promise you that... sometimes helping other people out can be the key to... your own development !!! Its been quite a while since i havent continued with my arc of disgraced stories of frustration in love, but IM BACK [insert ironic/sarcastic tone of voice], YAY !!! Anyways, the problem i still have from this specific situation is one of the most haunting things from all the multiple shitstorms that have been crushing my self-esteem, sanity and relations nowadays. I would really love to make this short and concise but ,as always, ill have to tell it from the beginning : I always thought my greatest passion was going to come out of a cheesy as hell hollywood-esque situation when i was a kid but, apparently, God (if he exists and i really hope he does not) has a pretty fucked up sense of originality and the very first eye contact that i had with her was with with some random OCD ritual of giving panoramic looks around the classroom that i care since 8th grade...And there she was, way back in the last benches: beautifully pale, slightly chubby, with a soft black hair and a pair of cute cheeks...imagine that song Bang Bang but with a Tomahawk missile blast instead. Unfortunately, my lack of social skills led me to making some pretty awkward and unpolite advances through letters that i thought would be "cool" according to 8th grade Lucas's retarded logic. But i still groomed some hopes until some months ago thinking she would just think "Oh, he was just being silly" and that i would have some chances with her but, as everything in my life, it backfired horribly. In a curt and cutting (just as her personality and kind of her gaze, although i always loved it ) whatsapp message she said i was hassling her and that i basically had to give her a LONG time. She also said : "I dont even want friendship with you" and some other little "feel good" things such as : "But dont worry, focus on ther girls" and "its gonna be alright". It all almost seemed as joke since those little words at the end werent even close of soothing the damage. I even tried to face it with the "man up and go on" macho meme but i quickly figured out how bad of a meme it was because it made me realize i just couldnt move on. Each day it grows stronger to me that she is probably the only woman i had any kind of genuine love and the rest are probably going to be like bubblegum that i chew and spit when the relation gets tasteless (if i sound like a grade A asshole, it's because i am. Its natural for frustrated people to be like that ). The thought that i may never find happiness with other girl is really unerving...Whenever i get alone and with nothing on my head, this disgraced thought hits me like a bullet. I even try to practice some sport or something but it always hits back twice as hard. Its like theres no escape for this burden for a crime i never commited... BUT HEY, i may be wrong and thats why im asking for your advices. I can even consider to silence it with licit/illicit drugs since i cant seem to cope with it...

  7. It's a given that the forum has helped many people, but how has Asperclick helped you? (e.g. What has it made you realize? What process has it helped you go through? What experience has it given you? How has it helped you grow as a person? etc.)

    Peace, what's that?

    Does anyone feel like peace is a foreign concept to them? To me it is. Suffering is my constant companion.
  9. Hi, I was wondering peoples thoughts on telling a partner you have Aspergers? I'm on the milder end of the spectrum and its not particularly noticeable... Do you think its important I let a possible partner know? I know you can't really answer it for me but I'm in need of advice. Emma x

    Feedback for Makelets

    I've been wanting to start a thread where all the members could give feedback to each other with the purpose of helping each other grow as a person. Before I go any further, I'd like to say that, initially, I had started this thread in the "Debates" section of the forum, but as I was writing this I realized that I don't want it to be a negative thing, but rather a positive thing so that's why I decided to post it in the "Help, Support and Advice" section, instead. Anyway, I asked about posting a thread like this in ranting, but after a while, I realized that other members were right and that the thread could end up becoming something else. Essentially, it sounds a lot better as an idea than as done. As a result, I decided to test it on myself and see how it goes. You can use this thread to give me feedback, tell something that you think might help me improve as a person. However, before you post your feedback, please take into consideration that I'm an aspie and that I'm also depressed. I will also take into consideration all of the feedback you give me and will appreciate your input. So, without further ado. Let's start!

    Maths

    hello i'm very interested in maths (and science) and i am currently doing my A-Level at college - i was wondering is any one else is doing these subjects and maybe we can post here about things in class we have truble with and help each other out? the one thing i can do is maths and science, and i'm proud of that fact. and i want to help people who struggle a little and also be able to ask/talk about things like this. ithere is another post for science, aswell as another thread in general descution more for asking questions about curiositys eg. how do magnets work? how can geckoes stay stuck to the walls? so i'm looking forward to helping thost that struggle - those struggling with me and i hope that maye there are some university studants/graduates who can go in to great detail about some topics? (i know not perticualy Aspie related but its friendly here and i feel i can talk here SO much easier than to people in my class)

    Connecting to people

    so here's the thing... i was brousing around when i came across a post about begin touchy feely, and lots of people where saying that they can with people they like/love but... well... does any one else other than me have problems connecting to people. literaly connecting to anyone. cuz it feels like there's something wrong with me that other AS can love, yet i can :/ so is it something not connected with AS? or does some one know what i'm talking about or trying to say? at the moment i just treat everyone equally, and nicely. but i cant seem to get attached or emotionally involved with anyone even my mommy :'( i don't like it

    Texting

    Whenever I text people I can never tell if they actually want to talk to me. How do I know if people actually want me to respond or keep talking to them? I don't want to be intrusive or bother them if they don't want to talk to me I just cant tell when or if I'm bothering them. I just don't know if they want to talk to me. Here is an example conversation: Me: Hey want me to return the thing I borrowed or keep it and return it later? Her: Eithers fine Me: Alright. Say what days do you work? Her: I come when they call. Me: Ah that must be nice. How long are the your days usually? I know its not much to work with but I cant tell if she actually wants to talk to me. Maybe I'm just being paranoid but then again maybe not.

    Dealing with stress?

    I wanted to ask what other people do to deal with stress. I'm usually quite bad at dealing with stress, when I'm at work, and I'm under pressure, I really struggle to perform properly and I panic a lot, even when doing simple tasks, whenever I struggle with them, I panic and worry. I get really anxious and worried when I'm stressed, I struggle to concentrate and make mistakes, I wish I wasn't like this and could just turn off my emotions, but I cant. Any help of how to better deal with stress? Sorry if I haven't explained properly

    Everybody at Work Hates Me

    I work in a movie theater and yesterday was a horrible day there. I normally act likable and "normal", but yesterday I felt depressed for some reason and acted like my regular self would and my facade cracked immensely. I was ushering/cleaning theaters with 2 other people, Tonya and Jacob, and they had been there for an hour or so before me and had been chatting. So I felt left out and was even more sad, which led to me being even more ostracized, it's was a vicious cycle. I was giving that girl Tonya some attitude because she's prettier and more popular than me and she gave me even more attitude back. And later on I'm pretty sure she was talking shit about me, she was standing with this guy Kyle and they were talking and when I got close they stopped talking, and Kyle kept looking at me awkwardly and Tonya was all quiet. Then I think Kyle and Tonya were talking to everyone else because everyone was like awkward, and as I was leaving my shift, my one ally at work, David, half jokingly and half seriously said that I have to be nice to him since he's the "only one that actually likes me". And I was gonna investigate the matter, but decided not too. I literally felt so outcasted, I felt like crying at that moment because now nobody likes me at work. I only have 2 acquaintances and 1 friend, David, at work, but even he isn't that good of a friend with me since he watched a movie with Tonya and I never did anything outside of work with him, and he has a girlfriend but still hung out with her and not me. I work next tomorrow for 6 hours, and I am not looking forward to it. Hopefully I can get more info tomorrow with some allies because I feel like quitting since nobody likes me, but I'm not gonna give up or surrender. However, I am close to breaking, an hopefully a glorious dawn awaits... P.S. I referenced "Galaxy Quest" and Stephen Hawking in this post

    Ransomware

    So I have a virus on my computer that locked me out of a tab on my browser, it wont let me x-out of the tab. Anyways can someone please help me remove it!? I'm kind of scared.
  17. Hi, my names Tamzin and I'm 14 years old. I was wondering if any of you could give me some advice as I'm struggling at the moment. I get very upset and frustrated a lot. I'm easily wound up and it really annoys me. I try to keep it in but when it comes out I just break down and don't recover for days. I cry all night and quite a lot in the day, preventing me from having fun. I just want to be a regular teenager, going to parties etc, but the socialness (don't think that's a word) of a party freaks me out. Even though I'm a loud, outgoing person, I feel swallowed up in a crowd, and I never know where to place myself. I'm quite a sociable person, I will chat to people and I don't feel particularly uncomfortable, its just crowds and trying to concentrate when there is so much going on around you, you can't get your head straight and you can't really deal with it in the correct way. So what do I do? How do I place my self in society as whole really? I'm the odd one out, I'm an outsider who just wants to fit nicely. Please give me some suggestions, and if you have any questions I'm happy to try and answer them, as I like returning advice too. By the way, I only found out about 7 months ago I have aspergers, so I haven't really had time to come round to the idea. If that makes sense.

    Dentists...

    For as long as I can remember, dental work was a big part of my life. Bad teeth is a part of my genetics and due to the extensive work I had to have done, I developed a fear of the dentist when I was very young. I took a trip to the dentist today and despite my ritualistic obsession with dental hygiene, I was told that I had to have a filling. Of course that sent me in to full-blown meltdown in the middle of the room. Having fillings are one of my worst nightmare due to various things of the procedure. I hate the after effects, the feeling of the needle in your gums and worst of all... the drill! My appointment isn't until the 13th of October but I'm already panicking. My dentist is aware of my Aspergers and he's super understanding as he has other patients who are also on the spectrum. He was kind enough to offer me the chance to be sent to Reading to be sedated during the procedure, but I've never been sedated before and I don't know the clinic. (Has anyone been here? If so what was your experience like?) I just wondered if anyone else has a problem with this and what methods you use to cope with having the procedure done? Thanks guys
  19. I would like to have your opinions on wether or not you think that these are valid reasons why I "can't possibly have Asperger's". I am asking this because these are the reasons that my mother gives whenever I try to discuss Asperger's with her and I'm not sure that they're particularly valid actually. I would like to make it clear that I am not asking for opinions on wether or not I have Asperger's; I am asking if you think that these are valid reasons why one couldn't have Asperger's. Now the main reason is that I like to spontaneously share my ideas, opinions and things that I have made. Apparantly aspies don't do that. That doesn't seem correct to me because if aspies didn't have a desire to share things then they wouldn't infodump as much as they do. As I see it, all they want to do is to share their knowledge, and ideas about their obsessions. The other main reason that I can think of at the moment is that I always used to talk with a lot of expression - both in my voice and in terms of facial expression - when I spoke, particularly but not only if it was about one of my interests at the time. Again she claims that aspies don't do that, although I have read that some aspies do talk quite expressively sometimes. I would like to hear your opinions on wether or not these are valid reasons to say that one does not have Asperger's, and I will add any further reasons that she has given as I remember them. And please remember that I am not asking for opinions on wether you do or don't think that I have Asperger's. Regards, invisible

    Therapists - Usefull vs Useless

    I had a meeting with a 'specialist' therapist in autism and asperges, and personaly I felt that it was less than useless, he kept going over the same stuff again and again, moving slowly, things that anyone can easily find online, and explaining things that I already about because I already deal with it! (sorry, it got me really worked up) and it felt like waste of time on the other hand there was a therapist at college that I talked to, and it atleast felt good to be able to talk to someone openly, with out the overwelming social anxiaty even though she didn't know anything about ASD or high functioning autism but the point is does anyone else have experiances like this? Is it even worth talking to therapists? I don't understand how they can help... just there to talk to... whats the point?

    I feel a bit... lost

    Hello everyone. I would like to talk to you all about something that has been bothering me for a while now. I... I am transgender (MTF). I hate being male and I want to be a girl really badly. I hate having short hair, a flat chest, a deep voice, facial hair and the annoying stick between my legs. No I haven't talked to anyone (doctors/therapists) about it. You guys are the first people I'm coming out to because I know for sure that you guys will accept me for who I am. As female. This is why I've never posted a picture of myself (I was also just nervous about posting one in general) and it is why I haven't responded to Willow about the award I won for 2013. Here is a primer on what transsexuality is, it's a great website full of information; http://transsexual.org/aprimer.html If you have questions feel free to ask away. And if you have any ideas on how to come out to my parents and possibly make it easier for me to do so please tell me because I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. I feel a bit... lost.
