Confusing Rejections By People

Yesterday I went to the forest with my boyfriend and a friend. It was still quite early when we arrived which meant was nobody really there, expect for the three of us walking around and exploring the trails. After we had hiked around for a while and had started back in the direction of the car, somebody in the distance started shouting over at us. I didn’t understand what he was shouting in Turkish as […]

Can Asperger’s Syndrome Be Healed?

If you regularly follow this blog, you may have noticed that I have posted a lot on Asperger’s Syndrome lately. Asperger’s Syndrome interests me because it is a ‘communication disorder’ for which I personally score highly in many traits according to the self-assessment test. Additionally upon self-reflection, I can see myself clearly in many of the traits of Asperger’s, in particular when I was younger.

When I was growing up, Asperger’s Syndrome wasn’t something many people […]

Why I Turned Comments On and Then Off and then On again

For most of the nearly 4 years I have been on YouTube I did not reply to any comments and I had the comments on my blog closed. I also ignored most of the emails I received from viewers. The reason I did not reply to emails was because it kept happening that one email reply to a fan would turn into an email tsunami in which they would keep writing me long, […]

Is Turkey The Hardest Place to Make Friends?

Today I am feeling sorry for myself so I decided to write about my experience of making friends in Turkey. 


I have had enough international experience of living in different places to know that every place in the world has different social rules about friendship and making friends. When you move to a new country you can’t just expect it to be the same as what you are used to in you […]

Sitting Through The Panic Attack / Asperger’s Syndrome Meltdown

I did something new yesterday. I sat through a panic attack (or is it an Asperger’s Syndrome meltdown?) without acting out my pattern of a lifetime. This post is about what these attacks feel like for me, and what I did differently the last time one happened.


FIRST, SOME BACKGROUND

For all my adult life I have tried to avoid the feeling of getting drained from social situations. In fact, the reason […]

When the ghosts come…

A poem about ghosts (words below the video)…

When The Ghosts Come…

There are those among us
Who go a-hunting for them.
With torches in hand
And breaths held tight
At the stoke of midnight
in paranormal search they wend
Infra-red gizmos calibrated
To detect the unbodied
Those who were
Our once dear
And now, sadly departed kin
Stuck somewhere between
Here and there
Wandering and lost.

There are those among us
Who go a-talking with them
In sodden graveyards
By the light of the moon.
In secret ritual they invoke
With magical chants
Mind-altering potion
Or […]

Something a bit different: a sci-fi story about what it feels like to be me…


She and the others like her came because they had loved the humans from the beginning. Of course, all who agreed to come were warned about the dangers of the process but nobody could have known that it was going to be much, much harder than anticipated. In particular, they were not aware that they were going to be […]
