Reckless Impulse Spending
Sep 28, 2016 - 4:18 PM - by Norvotrop
Hey all,
Still a newbie here but been browsing the forum and met a lot of friendly people and learn't a ton of much needed information, wish I found this forum in the summer when I was first diagnosed!

Gah... ******* awful day.
Sep 27, 2016 - 9:15 AM - by Jacksper

Multiple diagnoses
Sep 26, 2016 - 6:09 AM - by daru3200
Twenty six years ago, I was diagnosed as having high functioning autism, what used to be called Asperger syndrome. I've recently been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. I was just diagnosed as having ADHD, which I've suspected for years. Anybody else have such multiple diagnoses?

Buzz Cut for women? I totally dig it.
Sep 25, 2016 - 2:56 PM - by Twiggy
It might be impulsive or just I hate having hair go into my eyes.
But I love giving my hair a buzz cut.

Right now my hair grew out to 4 inches and it's getting too annoying for me.

I can never go back to long hair anymore.

Buzz cut it is, but after I buy new hair clippers.
