1. I think if you haven’t told your wife you need to sit down with her and tell her how you’re feeling. Let her share the burden. The two of you are in a partnership so you should be able to work together to improve things for your family. If not then at least you have each other to lean on. Sending hugs 🫂

  2. To be honest, I try to avoid it as much as possible. Especially if there are going to be gatherings with lots of people. I prefer to visit if I know it’s just going to be me visiting. If I do visit I make sure I am wearing clothes I am comfortable in, I take safe foods and drinks, I drive myself there so I don’t have to wait for someone else to be ready to go, and I give myself a deadline of around an hour and reassess. If by that time I’m ready to go, I will make an excuse (like having to collect my daughter from work or something) and then I leave.

  3. Slightly off topic but I once went for a job in a clothes store and they gave me a series of tasks to do on the shop floor as part of the interview. I logically made my way through them one by one, completing each task before moving onto the next. I didn’t get the job. I was told this was because I didn’t group the tasks together and do more than one at the same time. Now I realise that this excluded a lot of autistic people from working there.

  4. Yes! I absolutely hate it when other people are late. It feels like a personal attack, like they don’t value me enough to make the effort to show up on time. And if I make plans to turn up at an exact time I will leave extra early to meet the person because I don’t want to let them down. I also use google maps etc because I like to have the estimation of my arrival time.

  5. I have found that other women in my field of expertise who have been working there longer tend to try to talk down initially. My method for dealing with these individuals is gender neutral...the same techniques work just as well, if not better with women.

  6. I can definitely relate. For years I told myself that I have an "unusually low tolerance for being talked down to," but now I am starting to think that I just get talked down to a lot more than the average gal.

  7. It’s so frustrating isn’t it? it puts me off interacting with anyone new.

  8. Why does that author look so familiar to me? What else has she been in? 🤔

  9. What I don’t understand is why didn’t they just vote Sunak in in the first place?!

  10. Back in the 90s I had crushes on both Steve and Dev! Would be embarrassing to admit that to someone who didn't watch in those years.

  11. I had a massive crush on Steve too back then - I had his poster on my wall 😂

  12. I’m split between really loving dancing, and hating the feeling that someone is watching me. So mostly I just sit on the sidelines bursting to dance but never actually doing it!

  13. I would love Linda and Alfie to be together! There was a spark between them but then Alfie said he would do anything to get kat back, so I’m not so sure if he would jeopardise that but going with Linda

  14. Great how Mary’s remembered Aadi all of a sudden.

  15. They should have more scenes together- after all, she looked after them for most of their childhood (well it feels like she did)

  16. The Taylors. Yes we would be skint but there is so much love in that family and I’d love to have Karen and Mitch as my parents.

  17. I would like to be a relative of Roy’s. He’s so kind and thoughtful. And he’d do anything to help his family and friends.

  18. Whilst Bernie's tirade at Asha and Aadi was well intentioned, I hardly think she is a fine one to talk about parenting when she allowed her son to be abused by her fella...

  19. His chest area even flashed too. If I was talking to someone and the pocket right in front of me flashed and made a noise I'd ask out of intrigue.

  20. I love daisy - she would make a fab landlady, I think she has an air of Bet Gilroy about her, with her one liners and her sarcasm, she’s great. I got the impression though that Jenny is not as keen on going to Canada as she is making out…I think she will change her mind at the last minute.

  21. It really irked me that it took Sharon all of about 40 seconds to convince Kelly that the person she trusts the most is a psychopathic criminal mastermind. Not great writing that.

  22. I thought the same thing. She believed her straight away without really questioning it.

  23. It’s too spiky to be autism. And it’s like, totally the wrong colour. It just looks wrong to me.

  24. About switching to OL, are you sure it will meet your needs? Do you mostly drink espresso and milk drinks? If you really want OL, I would keep the machines you have, and get an Essenza from Amazon for £90. For me, the £25 subscription is too much as it’s equivalent to approximately 70 OL pods a month, or more than 2 a day.

  25. I do love a cappuccino. I have an aeroccino with my virtuo plus machine and I also like to have a big mug of coffee with frothy milk. I’ve had both machines and although it’s been a few years since I had the OL machine I did prefer the coffee. It would be better not to be tied into a subscription though, because then you have freedom to use non-proprietary pods, which gives a bit more variety.

  26. if you cancel the subscription early they take a cancellation fee which depends on the machine you got. i got a creatista for £1, so now i am stuck with a monthly subscription of £55 for 24 months, unless i pay a £350 cancellation fee

  27. I wouldn’t be cancelling early, I’m out of contract now with my current deal. I get what you’re saying about selling on my virtuo. I just saw a deal on a tv ad for a brand new one for £69. Very tempted to go for another 2yr subscription with an original machine but I’m just not sure if I want to be tied to a subscription for another 2 years 🤔
