Hello my lovely friends out there in
How are you all?
Please leave your answers in my comments,
I do care…I wouldn’t ask otherwise. X 😉
I have been really missing having the internet.
It’s just not the same on my mobile, and using other peoples computers.
I like to blog from the comfort of my own home even if it is only a quarter decorated and in need of a serious revamp after the builders.
Don’t get me wrong , my Aunties flat is beautiful.
BUT… she notices if I even put a spoon back in the draw incorrectly or move a coaster slightly.
O.C.D… it runs in the family you know……hehehehehe
I have a man upstairs at the moment.
He looks just like a young Prince William.
You know the one, the future King of England.
He is looking at my modem and doing something to my router….giggle
STOP IT! He’s not much older than *AJ.
Any Aussies reading this….I said …ROUTER with a “U”
NOT double “O”
AND anyway….I’m a happily married woman….lmho
Sorry I just couldn’t resist that one, don’t unsubscribe please.
I promise I won’t do it again. 🙂
I was thinking today about yesterdays post
My visit to the doctors all those years ago. Trying to get a diagnoses for my Aspergers Syndrome.
I got chatting with my friend about it actually.
An opportunity has turned up at the school for me to get help and advice.
The lady that is now working with *CAL every Tuesday, also sees me every Tuesday to chat about how I’m coping with my special needs kids, while having Dyslexia and undiagnosed Aspergers myself.
I have been thinking I might take advantage of this, and maybe try again with support to get myself labelled….hehehe
So I spoke to my friend to see what she thought.
I trust my friend she is very honest and knows me very well.
She said that she thinks I understand myself better than I give myself credit for.
Also she felt that an official diagnoses would shut up those annoying people in my life that don’t want to believe me.
So If I get the opportunity I should go for it.
I love how honest and open my friend is, she says just what she thinks and that’s just great with me.
I don’t cope well with falseness.
I was chatting with her about this via email this morning and I must say it started my Aspie ranting off just a little.
My friend told me that she thought I had got the beginning of my next post.
She was right I was looking for inspiration.
So…be warned ALIENHIPPY RANTING about to start….lol
Do you know what I really hate???
When someone says to me, “Hello Lisa, how are you?” and then they smile.
I don’t know what to do. Do I answer them honestly, they did smile after all.
Errrrrrmmmm ….Are they just being polite, or do they really give a monkeys.
Well let’s just THINK about that shall we Lisa!
What has happened in the past???
I’ve answered them honestly and they have listened for a while.
Then either walked off, called someone else to rescue them or made an excuse after looking at their watch…lol
So…why do they even ask, it’s just stupid really isn’t it!!!
Politeness you say!!!
I don’t think it is very polite when someone is talking to just walk off and go ask someone else how their holiday was.
Or…Did you see Eastenders last night?
Or, to be constantly looking over your shoulder for a chance to escape.
Or even to ask you how you are, then talk over the top of you, and tell you how they are.
I find it just ridiculous. I didn’t ask them they asked me.
SO…why not just say, I have some problems can I talk to you. It makes no sense at all to me.
If they want to be polite and don’t really want to know how I am.
Then why not just say…..
“Hello Lisa!” or “Hi there!” or the classic “Have a good day!”
Wave to me or simply just nod and smile.
And here is another RANT about to start.
When I try to explain about having Aspergers to people and about my Kids. They say some of the most ridiculous things.
I mean us humans are the strangest of creatures sometimes…lol
These are some of the replies I’ve gotten off very well meaning people when I have mentioned Aspergers to them, and about maybe getting a diagnoses.
Are you ready…???
It might be fun if you add your silly replies in my comments….giggle
This one is a good one!
“Well….you’ve managed so well with everything in your life, how is a bit of paper going to help!”
Then there is this one!
“I don’t think there is anything wrong with you Lisa, you are just a little bit shy!”
The best one I have ever heard has got to be this one, See if you can beat it…lol
“Lisa you need to get your head out of the psychology books and back into the theology books, where is your focus girl?”
Well I told my friend about all this, she thought it was kind of funny.
Her reply was….. no, you are NOT shy!!
Shy people don’t sing and dance in the co-op! LMHO!
Exactly that’s my point….I’m not at all shy.
I’m extremely loud and over the top in my comfort zones.
It’s just out there with the world, I feel afraid so I don’t allow them in, they don’t really know me.
I AM NOT SHY……..Errrrrghhh. Eyes just freak me out….lol
I think people mean well and believe that by telling me there is nothing wrong with me, they think they are helping me in some strange kind of way. They don’t realise just how insulting it actually is. If I was this weird and there was nothing wrong with me, I’d be very, very strange don’t you think…..giggle
Do you understand what I am saying???
Does anyone get what I’m saying here?
I mean who else gets up every night at 3am instinctively to go and sing and pray to God.
Monks, Nuns. I don’t think they do it instinctively, I think they have bells to wake them up.
Who else has only one real friend when they are as friendly and open as me.
Yes…. I just find it very insulting when they say stupid things like that.
It’s the same with my kids, when they say she’ll grow out of it.
Why does she have to grow out of anything. Apart from her clothes and shoes.
It’s just who she is, how she’s made. The way she is created.
I’m so glad God loves us all and we can all be ourselves with Him.
So anyway, here ends the RANT.
I hope I haven’t offended anybody with my openness and honesty here.
I didn’t intend to and I’m dreadfully sorry if I have.
BUT….if you look at the top of my blog page it does say
Alienhippy’s blog “A place where I can be me”
Love and hugs. xx 🙂
Prince William fixed me, I have blogged from home….YAY!!!!!!!!!
