Problems with Itemizing?

Hello, I'm new here. The first thing I'll say is that autism runs in my family. It is suspected that both of my grandmothers were born with it, one of my cousins was diagnosed with it (as well as my brother), and we are pretty sure that my dad and possibly his sister are on the autistic spectrum as well.

Over the last decade or so, it has been suspected that I may be on ...

Can’t bring myself to tell

I can’t admit to those close to me that I’m really not ok like I say I am. At a certain point I just began to suck it up and say something like I’m well how are you?

Old Family Secret

Never told anyone else any of this before! Just wanted to share.

Several years ago I was wondering why we didn't associate with other members of the *mod edit* and found out a family secret! First I was told that my grandfather (born 1918) was the result of a rape and later after his death I was also told that it was his uncle (his mom's brother) that raped her and probably caused her death ...

How can I find out

If the dumb thoughts I have are because of my mental disease or because I'm a dumb person?
I know I'm in the schizophrenia spectrum. I've had hallucinations and I understand I have a tendency not to raciocinate well because of the fact that I'm in the spectrum. But not every time one has a dumb thought is because he has mental disease or because his brain failed. I don't know if was on the ...

mom lived in my dorm to help me with depression!

My mom and I are very close, possibly enmeshed. She even lived with me in my dorm room (a single) all of last year (I'm 21, female by the way). We shared a twin bed and and she even ate from the dining halls and used the showers. She was only planning to stay a couple of nights but she never left. I tried my best to keep her hidden (sneaking her up food from ...
