This is fucking better water bending than the entire last air bender movie
Being autistic is a wild ride because nts constantly say you aren’t autistic for reasons that make no sense.
“You aren’t autistic, you use social networking sites” ” you can’t be autistic, you finished high school” “you can’t be autistic, you have friends” “you can’t be autistic, you act like a person instead of the subhuman shit that I think autistic people are” (that’s not one they say aloud but they clearly think it )
I don’t know where you are, but there’s something in Australia that makes custom plugs, and for more money they can put audio things on. It is expensive, but may be worth it to you? http://getplugged.com.au/
Thank you, strugglingbuthoping! I’m in the US, but knowing something like this might be possible (with some saving up) is really good to know. ^_^ I will definitely keep this in mind.
Sound Off: My Headphones Rant
You know what? I love headphones. You could say I’m rather addicted to them. This is mostly because I’m obsessed with music, and I like hearing it almost all the time. I’m also considerate enough to not force my tunes on others on a constant basis, so I prefer to just keep my own little soundtrack going in my ears 80% of the time. But this is a rant, and not a rant about music.
As I said, I love headphones. I love buying headphones. I buy at least two pair every year. I’d buy more, but I’m not rich. I have to be picky about my headphones, because I have small ears and sensitive cartilage. At least half of the headphones available end up being very uncomfortable or even painful for me to wear after even a short time.
I can’t wear most earbuds without pain. I can’t wear the “canal-style” buds because my ear canals are small and nothing fits right. On-ear headphones make my ears sore and give me a headache. That leaves over-ear and clip-on headphones.
I almost always end up with clip-on ones because they are always light and don’t cause too much pressure. I love the sound of over-ear headphones, but my main problem with those is the look and weight. I usually find them quite comfortable, but this is one of those few times where I find the way something looks on me more bothersome (and important?) than comfort. Really, I’m extremely envious of those who can just wear these headphones and look cool. They’re all just like:
Right?? Now, I’m bald. Being bald automatically disqualifies me from looking cool in these things. Add to that the fact that I have a small head, and you’re pretty much seeing this:
See what I’m getting at? It’s not a good look for me. It’s borderline ridiculous. I wish I could find a nice comfy pair of over-ear headphones that were stylish and didn’t make me look like a ping pong ball caught in a vise. I’ve looked at many a set, and never had any luck. I still end up with the clip-ons. *sigh*
I do like the behind-the-neck style of headphones, but those are always the on-ear style and usually end up hurting. Don’t they make behind-the-neck headphones which are also over-ear?? That would be perfect! Unfortunately, I’ve still not seen such a thing. So I’ll just go back to my not-quite-as-good-sounding clip-ons and deal with life. But if anyone in the headphone design dept is listening…
Okay, end rant. GOODNIGHT!
It’s funny how autistics are supposed to have black and white thinking but it’s allistics trying to seperate everyone into high and low functioning.
"Yeah but people with autism can’t…"
Sorry, mister self-proclaimed autism expert, stimming doesn’t always mean someone is stressed or uncomfortable. Stometimes I stim because I’m stressed. Sometimes I stim because I’m happy. Sometimes I stim because I like to stim.
