Hi all, I'm new around here.


I had my son Brady 3 months ago and after 12 weeks of Maternity Leave, I am now back at my 2nd week of work.

I'm just waiting for it to come. If I could cry, I would. Maybe all the stress I've been dealing with for a while has desensitized me.

what's wrong with crying? Go a head and cry -- I lost my mom and a good friend this year and have lived through losing my dad, my sister, my boss and another good friend - if I hadn't cried I don't know how i would have gotten through it - remember there's no right or wrong way to grieve - be gentle and patient with yourself and take good care. Please accept my deepest sympathies on your loss

Well, I'm a *bit* more miserable than usual. A bit being a huge understatement. My grandmother on my mother's side died, recently. I haven't cried yet, but I've come close to it.

i'm a firm believer in empowering ourselves...empower yourself to be that voice that doesn't take on a air of misery -- be the change you wish to see in the world -- It can be hard but don't let the negative voices get you down -- be that positive voice, be that positive force and you can move mountains.

and truly I hope you stick around and keep posting, you're doing fine!

"Marked" Asperger's Syndrome. (While AS is a mild disorder, it does have degrees. And mine is worse than average. It used to be full-blown autism, though. It's managed to dwindle.)

Curse, why? It isn't simply because I have it, but it's because other people don't understand me. It always feels like I am in a foreign land, struggling to speak the same language as the natives and live in the way that they do.

You're right. Most people would be willing. But that's not so. It's normal for people around here to be intolerant, and defensive. I've also checked with other people I know, to validate this. I didn't want my perceptions to be misguided by bad experiences. But I'm an observant type, first. So I notice things--the largest about here being the air of disgruntled misery. There are so many people that way, they establish the atmosphere.

This is because I have a form of autism. It's a curse
