Every Woman is Laura Palmer

Or How Autistic Men Can Protect Themselves from Female Manipulation INTRDUCTIONAnyone who has been reading my entries for a while may have noticed that I have a framed photo of Laura Palmer on my desk.

Finding the Positive Within the Negative, Reacting, and Responding

In school, you are first taught a lesson and then tested. But in life, you are tested first, and THEN taught a lesson. INTRODUCTIONI have read that it takes FIVE positive thoughts or incidents to offset only ONE that is negative. Our brains have a bias toward the negative. I don’t know why, but suspectContinue reading “Finding the Positive Within the Negative, Reacting, and Responding”

How to Spot a Real Friend

INTRODUCTIONI have written many times about the topic of friends. I have at least one piece on friends from the old days who turned out to not really be my friends at all.

Are Scam Victims Stupid?

MY IGNORANT BIASWhen I was a young adult, I would read about various scams and see news stories where they interview scam victims. At the time, I had several biases and believed some strange things. One of those is the idea that people who fall for scams must be really stupid. Very, very stupid. SoContinue reading “Are Scam Victims Stupid?”

Toxic Work Environments

Toxic work environments are destructive to workers. One would think that the Board would want a work environment to not be destructive, because it may impact profitability. However, when there is corruption in management on up, they may give the appearance of being profitable at the expense of the workers. Today, I’m going to tellContinue reading “Toxic Work Environments”

Finally, Rejection

I have been told that Autism can serve as a magnifier for pain, be it physical, mental, or emotional. For that reason, I am including a picture of my Main Coon, Tibo Bat. He tends to fix many things with his fluffiness. A SOURCE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL PAINLooking for work is one of those things thatContinue reading “Finally, Rejection”

My Naive View of the Truth

As a little child, I was told that I should always tell the truth, without exception. Always. This did not work out well for me, mostly because 1) you don’t tell this to an Autistic child, and 2) I did not know that I was Autistic until I was 57 years old. So I wentContinue reading “My Naive View of the Truth”

In the wee hours of the new year, I was awake and washing dishes, when a ceramic bowl hit the edge of the counter and EXPLODED in my hands. Both hands were shredded and bleeding profusely. For a moment, I thought, “Well, I COULD go get a bandage and do something about it. But theContinue reading “My COVID-19 Anger”
