I’m doing virtual learning 3 days a week. I have autism and adhd and I can barely concentrate. I always want to do something else. I tried taking breaks in between classes but seeing all the work I haven’t done stresses me out as well as the large amounts of work given to me at once.
That is now stressing me out even more. I really need to do my work but it’s getting really difficult.1 AnswerMental Health1 week ago
My sister went to a camp and asked the people there to call her John or Philip. Is this just a hamilton obsession or could it be a gender thing? When I asked her who the hottest Percy Jackson Character was, she answered Thalia Grace.
I’m super accepting and am an omniromantic Genderflux but my parents aren’t as accepting. I’m out to them but they are saying I’m lying.
Is there anything I can do for her?
Yes I know I used she her pronouns because that’s all that she’s given me to use.

I REALLY want to be able to change someone’s life, be an inspiration. I’m 14 so I can’t do too much.
Some things I’m especially interested in are
-lgbtq+ protection and rights (emphasis on the +)
-anything that has to do with helping depression
If I were to start speaking about this, what’s the best way to grow a community online?1 AnswerCommunity Service2 weeks ago
I’m Genderflux (girlflux) and I get really bad dysphoria some days. Like when my hair touches my neck I lose all concentration and I get REALLY uncomfortable. However, I can’t cut my hair because when I’m feeling feminine (80% of the time) I feel like I NEED long hair. I can usually fix this using a beanie. However, my school has a no hats rule. My hair is a bit below my shoulders. Any masculine/agender/non-binary hairstyles I can use to keep my hair off my neck without cutting it?2 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender2 weeks ago
I need advice for coming out to my teachers. Because of COVID-19, all of the kids will be staying in one classroom and the teachers will be moving. That means I can’t get up in between classes to tell the teachers.
All the teachers last year reacted well to my friend coming out so I know they’re open to that.
I’m Genderflux, which is similar to genderfluid so that means that my pronouns change.
Anything that can help me explain this to my teachers is welcome.
What should I explain when coming out?4 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 month ago
My mom claims that using gender neutral pronouns (they/them in a singular tense) is to hard because it didn’t exist back when she was a kid. However, I talked about my friend who is non-binary with my grandmother, who picked up on my use of they/them pronouns very quickly.
Another thing is that my mom gets mad when I try to correct pronouns. She says she’ll accept me no matter what but I’m not getting that vibe.
Is it really that difficult for adults to learn these pronouns or was my grandmother maybe used to this for whatever reason?10 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender1 month ago
I just went biking on the main road for the first time. I have autism and pretty bad anxiety. Whenever a car passed us I was freaking out having a minor panic attack.
I mean we went to get ice cream but that didn’t help.
I want to be able to do this again but I just get so anxious
I live in the us if that makes any difference2 AnswersPsychology1 month ago
I just recently cut my hair and I can’t figure out how to put my hair up in a beanie non-binary style. What I mean is with that little bit sticking out the front. My hair goes just below my shoulders.
I haven’t found any useful tutorials online.
Anything is appreciated1 AnswerHair1 month ago
I don’t want to be rude because I know people claim to have ocd but don’t. I do have autism too. When I was younger I had to do everything with both sides of my body. Stub my toe? Stub the other one! Brush my ear on accident? Other side! It kinda lessened now. I also refuse to eat things if they touch. That’s all I can really think of right now.
Could it be the autism or is it probably OCD? Anything is appreciated!
I’ve been losing interest in basically everything and don’t want to do anything. I’m also having a lot of trouble sleeping. Is there any way to lessen the symptoms without medication, prescribed or natural? I feel it may be taking over my life and I want to make it easier. It doesn’t have to be entirely cured or smth but I’d like to get part of my life back. I’m pretty sure it’s atypical depression and it tends to lessen around friends but that’s becoming less effective. I have autism, anxiety and adhd. Anything can help!
Looking back, I see signs of depression in earlier life but ever since quarantine it’s really bad. I’m diagnosed officially but my therapist thinks I’m right. I’m sleeping 8-10 hours average daily and still exhausted. I’m super artsy and musical but have recently lost satisfaction in that. And that’s after 10ish years of it being everything to me. All I want to do is lay in bed. Reading used to also be my favorite hobby but I’m getting bored, even with endless new content. (Fanfics) Sometimes it feels like my cat (14 lbs) is sitting on me. Like I want to get up but I can’t and don’t want to.
Before quarantine I didn’t eat too much but now it’s been cut in half twice.
Everything feels like a chore and not really anything makes me happy anymore.
I am 14 years old who’s always had sleeping problems. I have diagnosed autism anxiety and adhd. Now I’m pretty sure I have depression. Last night I got 8 1/2 hours of sleep and I’m EXHAUSTED. Like “I could fall asleep watching Star Wars” tired (and I’m OBSESSED with Star Wars)
When I was younger I used to get anywhere from 3-7 hours of sleep (usually toward the lower end of the spectrum) and would be full of energy.
Could it be depression or my body catching up on sleep or something else. Please help. This has been going on for months.2 AnswersMental Health1 month ago
I want to be that cool older sister, but I don’t get along with my sister. I’m autistic and she does things that make me react and either gets mad or keeps doing it. I want to be someone who can help her in the future, and be someone she can go to for help and that, but it’s difficult.1 AnswerFamily3 months ago
