Re: Grew Out of it, but Trying to Process

Hello I just wanted to say that today I began the process of legally changing my name. I have been using an abbreviation of my birth name to better align with my gender identity for the past four years, and it means a lot to me to finally be making it my legal name. It know it's going to take a whil...

Re: Asking my crush about meeting in person, wanting to make some more friends, etc.

I would say that the idea of being able to see him in person makes me feel excited. I can definitely say he makes me a lot happier than my previous relationship did, even though right now we are just friends. My fears are more attached to my previous relationship, and when I have videochatted with h...

Asking my crush about meeting in person, wanting to make some more friends, etc.

Hello Making another thread since my last one was getting pretty lengthy. I haven't gotten to videochat with the guy I like for a few months due to school, but the semester and finals ended a few days ago, and we are planning on having a watch party this week. I'm pretty excited about it. Even thoug...

Re: Grew Out of it, but Trying to Process

I felt like I never had a best friend until fifth grade. I did have friends, there were people that did like me, but I was never the best friend. There was one student that I thought was my best friend in fourth grade, but she also fed me a bunch of lies. When I look back on it, I find it really har...

Re: Grew Out of it, but Trying to Process

Yeah, I think I would like to talk about it. I'll start out by mentioning that there was a group of kids in third grade that I thought were my friends. Instead they just tried to get me in trouble. At the end of third grade, my teacher went into the bathroom while we were all standing in line, and a...

Re: Grew Out of it, but Trying to Process

I did end up having this conversation with my mom, and that I thought maybe she was in some denial. She says she didn't think it could be the case because I was still able to communicate my needs with her and my dad. She does seem to understand where my therapist is coming from. She also says that I...

Grew Out of it, but Trying to Process

Hello Figured I should make a new thread for this. I mentioned earlier about how my mom said she never thought I had autism because I picked up on social cues better then I did when I was little, which feel contradictory to what she said. Well, I have been talking about this with my therapist, and h...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

So originally my mom was told that she was going to be able to work from home for the remainder of the school year, but has now just received an email saying that she now has to start working from the school building she works at on March the 29th. I really do feel sorry for her, but I honestly look...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

We actually had that talk earlier this morning. My dad had to go to work in bad weather, and she was understandably pissed off, which caused me to break down. She said she was sorry if her mood has been upsetting me, and I did tell her she needed to be aware that her actions could affect other peopl...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

When my mom is in this "vicious mode", she seems to act like the world should revolve around her, and she won't like it if things don't go her way, and she doesn't care how others feel. I don't know how to describe how it makes me feel, but one particular moment, it felt like she forgot ho...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

Hey I'm worried about my mom, and she is getting on my nerves. I have said it before, and I will say it again, I love her very much, I am fortunate to have the type of relationship I have with her, but I don't know how to communicate with her right now. She has had a rough time this past week, and h...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I'm doing okay now. My parents also aren't big on Valentine's day, but they still give me presents that day, and yesterday they gave me a huge collection of Ray Bradbury stories and some Twilight Zone trading cards, so that was nice. I glad that my parents really love each other, this summer will be...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

So today is Valentine's Day, and I always find myself feeling a little blue this time of year. I have done some pretty stupid things on Valentine's day when I was a kid. There were two occassions when I tried giving anonymous Valentine's to boys I liked in middle school, but they both figured out it...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I think I'm getting to a point where I am starting to like him even more. I have found myself having fantasies about him. Kissing, sex, having a future with him. Wonder if part of it is my mind feeling social interaction deprived. I haven't hugged someone who wasn't my parents since March. I wouldn'...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I finally got to hang out with him again today. He actually messaged me ten minutes after the last time I messaged you saying he didn't show up because he spent the whole day packing and preparing to move back to campus, and then fell asleep half an hour before he was supposed to meet me. Glad he ha...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

Not right now. I'm still waiting to hear back from him, which may take a while. I'm okay with that, I could kind of use some space right now. I'm talking to my therapist tomorrow, and I arranged to speak with my friend who I normally talk about sex in a few days.

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I want to wait until a certain level of trust is present. I would like to tell him sooner than later, but I don't feel right telling him while we still don't know each other very well.

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

My movie night didn't go as planned. He never showed up. My friend was still there though, and we still had a good time. My messaged my mom while the movie was playing saying that he didn't come, and this was what she said. I am sorry. Don't assume the worst, something may have come up. You can mess...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I am interested in thinking of some other virtual activities, but at the same time, old movies and TV shows are what I thrive off of, and I'm glad I found someone who appreciates them. I can talk about them for hours, but aside from that, I'm not the best at making conversation. I mentioned Twilight...

He is joining my friend and I for movie night. I'm not sure what I could suggest that we do together in the future, especially since everything we are doing is virtual because of Covid. I am wandering what things will look like for when we try to hang out together when classes start next week and ou...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I have been thinking about how to approach my crush with rescheduling a time to hang out, and I don't know if I want to be alone with him this time. I schedules to do a movie night with one of my best friends in a couple of nights. I do movie nights with him regularly, and we take turns choosing fil...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

First, Sam I think it is awesome that you have a thing for Vincent Price, even though the only thing I have seen him in is in an episode of "Night Gallery", but some of his horror movies are on my watch list. For me having reservations about being capable of getting in the character's head...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

I think I mainly have reservations about it because I didn't know I was capable of doing it. I feel comfortable telling my friend who I have been talking to about sex with, but I am definitely not ready to tell the person I like. I have always felt a little weird about talking about my celebrity cru...

Re: Anxiety about potential relationship manifesting into a series of nightmares

With the role play, I mentioned that I was going to try to get into the head of the character, which I didn't think I would actually be able to do, but I managed to do it. It's like I didn't even have to think about what I was doing, it's like the character I was was saying to me, "Alright, I'm...
