Hugs! I'm just now getting over a miserable cold, and the cough is lingering and lingering. Hope you feel better quickly!
Need to mark down a little 'poly' success.
I asked an experienced person to tie me up. He's here visiting and leading a workshop, and I know he noticed me at his previous workshops already and we have some kind of connection, so I decided to go for it, and he said yes. So hopefully it works out tomorrow at the ropejam. Whee!
I'm happy like a teen who's arranged for a first date, and also proud of myself for asking...
Oh, damn, seems we had a miscommunication. I heard what I wanted to hear. I don't know why I supposed "some time at the rope jam" would mean "sometime tomorrow at the rope jam".
Definitely brave for asking. And at another ropejam, please be brave again and say, "how about today."
So I did manage to ask again and a session happened! Yai!Will do, thanks But I won't see him probably for half a year or so, better let go of expectations. Why do I have to crush on teachers
Me too, thanks for the encouragementOhhhh, that's wonderful. I'm so happy it happened 😀
Yeah, thanks, but I don't know my time of birthHi TinWen,
I am extremely sorry to know that you are suspected to have such kind of health problem.
You may not know I always concern and care about your postings here. I am a Vedic Astrology student, if you are interested and optimistic about this knowledge, I may help you analyzing your birth chart to see the effects of different elements of universe along with their planetary combinations.
For this you have to share you actual date, time and place of birth.
Wish you all the best !
Did it help you in any way to get a diagnosis?Late diagnosis is so very much a thing - I didn’t get my ADHD dx until I was 26. My meta (Joan) has her autism spectrum dx much earlier though.
... or maybe I'm just trying to explain away a lifetime of feeling like I don't belong. Just had a bit of an emotional release. I don't know whats true or likely any more, oh well.I found out, aged 30, that I might have Asperger's or some form of autism.
I mean the whole thing about any sort of autism spectrum (or ADHD spectrum) dx is that it's just more info about how your brain works - it's not (IMO) a *disease* or a *disorder*, just one of the many ways that people can work. And if you've always been around people whose brains work differently, well, that's a reason to feel like you've not quite belonged. Doesn't mean figuring this stuff out is trying to "explain things away".
Thank you so much.I was diagnosed with Asperger's (back when ASD was a collection of different Spectrum diagnoses) on my way out of college, almost ten years ago. All Autism Spectrum conditions had (and still have) many negative connotations, so I was like "no, not me, crowbar separation please." It was only after I engaged with the community and started meeting others like me that everything in my life so far made sense. I've been a low-key advocate ever since.
Women have historically been underdiagnosed, because a lot of the outward symptoms and satellite traits of high-functioning ASD have long been considered more socially acceptable and expected of women (thanks, patriarchy ). It's always good to know and have an idea, so you can better prepare yourself to work with and around your challenges going forward.
Thanks I was second actually, and it's not quite certain they will invite two people from each country. I just learned the female amateur go championship is not every year (maybe it's even a one-time thing due to the Olympic games being in Tokio), so I guess that makes it unique enough for me not to want to miss out ) I'll probably be like the weakest player there, but I can take that as an advantage, no pressure to win either, I can only do wellCongratulations on your tournament win! Whatever you decide, it will be the right thing
