  1. You could try using honey or brown sugar instead of vanilla syrup to switch it up. I like both lavender honey and orange blossom honey with Earl Grey. Another possibility is using Lady Grey instead of Earl Grey.

  2. I found Camille at Rosemary's shop but I can't get him to show me an ad because all I get is the "..." dialogue when I tap on him. My Internet connection seems fine.

  3. Screentime can be potentially overstimulating due to noise, color, and movement. Autistic people also have higher rates of photophobia (sensitivity to light) than NTs. Also, lots of psychologists seem to think that screen time should be limited for young NT children, and I don't see why autistic children would be immune to any potential harms of excessive screentime.

  4. Let me put it this way: if you were a patient in the hospital, and you had a stalker or an abusive relative, would you be happy if a random clerical worker told them what ward you were in and gave them that ward's address?

  5. It sounds like he might have an eating disorder called ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder), which is more common in autistic people.

  6. I seriously doubt that as an adult man he never encountered the concept of "waiting your turn" before. This seems like it could be deliberate rudeness instead of autism, fwiw, especially if he would not tolerate being subjected to the way that he treats other people.

  7. Do you know if you have vaginismus? It might be a good idea to see a pelvic floor therapist if it's possible for you.

  8. Could you give us examples of specific situations in which people thought you were rude? That might help us give you better advice.

  9. Autistic people experience pica at higher rates than average. Here is an article on

  10. I don't, and I feel it's been too long since I've been financially responsible for him for me to claim him as mine. I'm worried that the police will side with my ex... I don't even know if I want to reopen that can of worms anyway

  11. omg i rarely see any perfumes with Moroccan bhakoor!! do you have more perfume recs that use this?

  12. Not wanting to have sex because you don't feel like it is always valid. No one owes you a minimum amount of sex, including your GF. Being in a relationship with someone does not mean that the other person owes you sex, regardless of whether you are happy about the amount of sex you are having.

  13. You're being physically abused and emotionally abused. I think it would be a good idea to contact a domestic violence organization to create an escape plan. If the car is in your name, it should belong to you even if she paid for it. In the mean time, it would be a good idea to

  14. I’ll answer these the best I can since her and I have not discussed these things.

  15. Lots of autistic people, especially autistic women, cope with having poor social skills or otherwise not fitting in by becoming people pleasers. When people pleasers realize that they have been acting as people pleasers instead of living authentically, they often have crises of identity because they aren't sure who they really are because they've put all their effort into making others happy instead of pursuing self-actualization. I wonder if something like this might have happened to your wife.

  16. I think it might be a good idea to contact a local domestic rights organization or a disability rights organization to see what resources might be available and what the laws are. Adult protective services might be able to give you information about your rights as well.

  17. Getting married won't guarantee a fulfilling sex life. A ceremony will not magically heal sexual shame or sand away points of incompatibility. This forum is full of stories from people who waited until marriage to only discover that they were sexually incompatible. I think that a lot of the things that people who are waiting until marriage tell each other about what their sex lives will be like in the future are more aspirational than realistic. Furthermore, sexual shame isn't something that you can simply turn on and off like a faucet. Lots of people who were raised with purity culture have talked about how it made it very hard for them to have satisfying sex lives.

  18. If you try googling "sensory friendly clothing" or sometimes "adaptive clothing"you can find lines of clothing specially designed for people with sensory issues. Adaptive clothing is clothing designed for people with disabilities, including sensory issues. Also, you can find work pants with elastic waists if you google "work pants elastic waist".

  19. If looking at someone's face is too much, maybe practice looking at their feet or something to start. Or you could practice looking at people in movies and imagining that you are looking at the movie characters IRL.

  20. Could you give us concrete examples of behaviors that you find upsetting? It's hard to give good advice without specifics.

  21. It sounds like your brother is suffering from really bad anxiety or some other mental health issue. Screaming and running away any time a question is asked is not normal teenage behavior. It sounds like he needs professional help, especially because he is getting physical. I don't think it should be written off as just an autism thing, either.

  22. He's being controlling and misogynist. He has no right to tell you what to wear. It's absolutely awful that he objectifies you like that and calls you his 'property'.

  23. I think you're totally justified in being concerned. Breaking people's phones is a great way to isolate them. Abusers sometimes commit small boundary violations at the beginning of relationships to see what they can get away with before progressing to worse things.
