Yes. I realised that I got it mixed up. I will blame it on the tiredness.

Anyway, now I'm really going!

At least you have a diagnosis. I'm just weird with no diagnosis or excuse.
Asperger is pretty new and not easy to diagnose. But there is no excuses after Joe went thru so many psychiatrists. We are lucky that my son's pediatrician is a family friend and has an autistic child himself so he noticed and sent him to the right place to get diagnosis. I knew something was different with him when he was 2 so his toddler years were pretty hard on me too.

Yes it's very helpful to know what's been affecting me, and I'm already figuring out ways to deal with things better moving forward. I'm also seeing an austism nurse who's helping me out with all the aspects I struggle with. Very helpful .

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

well now SHE said you were petty.

Actually, I'm far worse than you in GM. You are pretty reasonable, I think.

Exchange rate seems pretty good to me with pound/dollar at the moment! I'm paying monthly for a server, which takes payments in USD. 18$ equated to roughly 11 pound for me

Is Duong a she??? I've seen 'it' mention its wife a few times, so something is wrong here, unless…

This is good news. Good to have someone with an objective viewpoint who is on your side and wants to help.

Also you are willing to work and to learn. That makes a big difference too.

May be they share an account. 'She' and I were friends on FB but after I agreed with a post of another poster here who disagreed with duong, she removed me from FB. The wife is French and the husband is Vietnamese/French.

It can always be better Though I have seen it be worse

I notice it most if I go to Burger King or something and the "dollar" menu suddenly is costing me closer to $2 That's when I notice it the most... otherwise I generally just ignore the exchange rate and eat or do whatever I want

I don't bother to answer after the personal attack. Why I need to prove to anybody on an internet message board what kind of person I am? I don't even need to prove to any posters in this chat thread whose opinions I value much more than those on GM.

No. I agree. Besides, what you do and the way you act means more than what you say about yourself anyway.
