    Just as the Lord revealed Himself to all of me, Becka affected all of me. The alters love her fiercely and there are many who can't cope with the fact that she passed from this world. Of course I miss her, but I've come to terms with her passing secure in the knowledge that her suffering is over and she's with the Lord.

    Others are still hurting and I've become familiar with their pain through co-presence. They're inconsolable, especially the protector alters. The Lord changed everything when He revealed Himself to us all so for the first time in their existence, the protectors devoted themselves to protecting someone other than me. Fiercely.

    Do you have problems communicating with people in person?

    sometimes. but i feel it can go either way.
    my thing is i dont feel i trust my mother setting this up for me.

    i told her that i really tried to get therapy recently and it was a teletherapy thing and she said that someone probably tricked me into thinking they are a therapist. im not that stupid.

    What does this mean? Can you talk to people and have a conversation in person? Do they have problems understanding you? I mean in general, I'm not referring to a therapist.
    Well, from what you've said about her, she doesn't seem trustworthy. But I don't know her so I can't say that for sure. I certainly don't like the way she treats you, according to what you've said. She seems to be too much like my mother.

    I'm just having a really hard time trying to understand your mother. I wish I could be of more help to you. I'm trying not to be too judgmental of your mother. But it's hard because of the things she says to you and the way she treats you.

    thank you i appreciate it.
    i think that i can talk to people in person . it also depends on the person.
    i used to find it easier to talk online. it also depends on who.
    in this thread i am able to be asked about what i mean other than someone jumping to conclusions. when other people indicate this i end up trusting them a bit.
    so i think it is better not to go to this therapist if im worried about feeling monitored. it can save her money and me, time and emotional issues.

    what bothers me is the fact that she seems insistent autism is my only problem and also insists i probably never talked in therapy or told them the right things.

    If you don't want to go to a therapist then that's your decision and your choice and you shouldn't be forced to do it.

    Can I ask you, have you actually been diagnosed with autism? Or is that just what your mother says.
    The "right things".... I would say that you talked about exactly what you needed to talk about in therapy.....Your mother is really a piece of work. ....sorry. smh

    Therapy doesn't address autism and medication doesn't treat autism. In truth, there's nothing wrong with the autistic individual. What does an autistic individual need help with?

    Coping with the fallen world of men because there isn't a place for the autistic therein. However, there is a place for the autistic individual in our Father's kingdom without end. Our place is with the Lord.

    I had a foster mother once who said that I had mental illness. I mean heaven forbid if I spent too much time playing the piano. I enjoyed it and it was my therapy and escape from her *****abusive husband. Sometimes I would walk down the highway to an abandoned house for awhile. Or I would go into the woods and stay there awhile. She took this as mental illness, not normal, I guess. It never occurred to her why I did those things even though I told her.

    I've been diagnosed with so many things. But see, I know me better than any doctor ever could or ever will. They don't get to tell me who I am or why I am the way I am. They have no clue. The doctor or physician I need is the LORD, the great physician.

    piano is a nice therapy.
    it makes sense to me.
    it kind of seems like a form of gaslighting to me...

    I loved playing the piano. I couldn't read notes but I played by ear. It seems like there was a piano in every foster home I was in, come to think of it.
    I was gaslighted constantly especially in foster care.

    Oh really. Is the therapist a neurosurgeon? Those people are so full of themselves. They really are. All they know is what they learned from a textbook and what they've been told by higher ups.

    That just means that you're human and it's normal to struggle with all kinds of things like depression, fear, feeling discouraged, feeling lonely, feeling insecure, feeling weak, feeling sad. feeling weary, feeling anguish and so many other things.
    There are examples of people in the bible who felt all these things and more. These were strong people with strong faith. But they were human with human weaknesses just like we all have.

    I see your brain working just fine. You communicate very well. You express yourself very well. If there's something I'm missing, then tell me what it is. Because I don't see it.

    Lilygrace, my phone sometimes does funny things that just seem weird. It makes me suspicious I'm being interfered with or hacked somehow. I'm not savvy enough to really investigate the suspicion, so, I dunno if its monitoring or not. Its always a question for anyone trying to seek freedom in this realm.
