2021.10.17 00:03 stoicgoblin Have any of you considered not treating it as a pathology?
Background: I'm an autistic person. I had the realisation a couple of years ago and, like many of you, it was an intense experience coming to terms with it. It was so obvious once it was revealed to me that I felt shocked that nobody in my life had picked up on it before.
However, I recently watched a video talking about this theory that the culture that's developed around contemporary mental health pathology can basically cause individuals to get diagnosed with something and then start reading forums about that illness/condition, learn all about the symptoms, continually read others' experiences and basically start unintentionally acting out those symptoms and behaving within the boundaries of what they consider those symptoms to be.
And it really hit home with me because I realised that as soon as I had been diagnosed I started avoiding exposure to things that I used to deal with every day and basically closing my mind to the idea of doing things that people who deal with the things I do have issues with. Maybe it's a terrible way of putting but I was using it an excuse to avoid doing things that make me uncomfortable but that maybe I really should do. I'm obsessed with hiking for example and have always wanted to do a long thru-hike but once I learned I was autistic and stopped even considering it because I realised that the dirtiness and some aspects of doing one are things that I have trouble with.
And I don't think this is a unique experience to me either. I have a friend with a chronic pain problem that she entirely leans into. It's become her life rather than a condition she has to live with. She's basically shut herself off to everything but very specific experiences that fit the norm for people with chronic pain. She can go out drinking all night in clubs when it suits her but she won't stay in a hotel that requires any walking. While the chronic pain is real, the imagined potential pain maybe isn't.
So where I'm going with this (and I know A LOT of you won't like it) is that I'm kinda thinking about ignoring the fact that I'm autistic unless I'm in a situation where I really need to disclose it. I'm thinking of basically unsubbing from forums like this and just treating it as a part of my personality, accepting it and living my life without adding to the ways in which it already limits me by not adding to it with my own imagination and subconscious. If I'm overly uncomfortable with something I obviously won't partake in it, but not actively trying to avoid that discomfort either. Not treating it like there's something wrong with me, rather that I just have certain preferences and certain abilities and things I'm not strong at.
Rather than giving me your opinions on me thinking about taking that approach (because I'm sure I'll come to my own conclusions), I'd really love to hear if you've ever thought about it. Have you ever been down this line of thinking? Have you ever thought of just not acknowledging it? --The closest experience I've had in my life to learning I was autistic was realising that I'm gay. It felt the same. But I don't let being gay force me on certain paths and I don't think about it all the time. It's just part of me. I don't go to gay bars and don't really get involved in LGBT discussions. I just don't care. And I don't feel like that's limited me at all. I think it's given me more freedom. I'm kinda thinking that the same might be true for my autism.

2021.10.17 00:03 Ali3nb4by Day 53 Struggling
It's been a week since I posted, and a part of me wants to go back pron and masturbate. I don't know if its my brain throwing a fit, or being on break with the lack of classes and social interactions are making this harder. I don't know anymore, I don't know if I am going through withdrawals or a Flatline. Recently my Energy been weird, day 42-43 I felt like I had an infinite amount of energy. Now there is times where I feel like need to take nap, yet I get good amount of sleep. I don't want throw this streak away, but at the same time I feel like forgot all the reasons I am fighting so hard to resist these urges. I also been cutting soda completely out of my diet, reducing sugar starting to eat least greasy food, been working out for a year and almost 2 months. Any tips would be appreciated, even criticism.

2021.10.17 00:03 throwmewhatyougot What should I give my girlfriend for her birthday? See text
Hey all, happy to say I’ve got a lighter topic for you today!
I’m in New York City visiting my girlfriend of about a year (not close enough to tie gift into a first anniversary though). I should’ve decided on this sooner I think but anyway I need to give her a birthday gift, as its later this month. Any ideas? My price range is between about $30-80, and she likes theatre, ru paul’s drag race, alternative music like elliott smith and phoebe bridgers, going out with her friends and stuff like that. Thanks in adv for the ideas!

Season 13 ruined Survivor for me
I need someone to help me. It's been literally years since Season 13 and Yul’s questionable victory, and I am still deeply wounded from it.
Why oh why did Survivor shoot that season in a way that makes it so obvious that the producers have their favorites who they want to win each season? I will never get over this.
If Survivor wanted to quiet the questions regarding rigging the game, this season was not the way to do it. I am sure it was not ACTUALLY rigged; but even the most die-hard of fans (of which I would have counted myself prior to this season) have to admit that season 13 was not a good look for anyone.
Can anyone talk me out of my despondency? I just hate that Survivor has this strong of a pull on me, even after they ripped my heart out of my chest, stabbed it repeatedly with a samurai sword, smashed it into a million pieces, lit it on fire, and pissed on its ashes.

2021.10.17 00:03 TheVantagePoint Salmon and Rain
All this rain we’ve been getting has caused the local rivers to swell with water. Two weeks ago the Coquitlam River peaked at the highest discharge seen in at least 18 months. (Can’t see data further back than 18 months). This weekend’s rain has brought the river back up to a raging torrent, not as a high as a few weeks ago though.
With the salmon run going on right now it got me thinking about how the high water flow effects the salmon trying to spawn. Surely they’re using much more energy to swim upstream now than they would be when the river is at a normal fall level. Rivers also move a lot of sediment during an event like that too, will the salmon’s nests and eggs be washed away down the river?
Can someone with knowledge either confirm or deny my worries. All seems like bad timing for the salmon.

Yeah, yeah I know, I’m not being very loving in making the criticism either. I just feel hurt sometimes that it seems like I ‘am’ my utility to him, based on the way he acts. I guess that’s why he has emptiness inside... because that’s how he sees things...

My deliverer has picked up my food and has been sitting at another restaurant that’s on the way for 7 minutes now. Should I be annoyed that my food is getting cold? I completely understand wanting to be efficient, but he literally could have been here in those 7 minutes. I tipped $6, which is $1 over recommended btw.
