    • That is a really good question. I would like to say that having a topic strictly be "women" would be a great thing, but I think it might not be as welcoming to men to delve into. I have nothing but high hopes for this being an open and welcoming forum so I would hate to discourage anyone from stepping into a topic category because of a gender label. I hope that makes sense? Maybe broader topics like Mind or Relationships or the Human Condition...

    • Hi Shawn, Not that I know you well but in what I do know about you I see that you are a very rare blend of technical and artistic. I get this from what I understand about your career. I was wondering if you had read "Look Me In The Eye" by John Elder Robison? I think you might really enjoy his story. He was diagnosed as an adult and looking back on his life is an amazing story.

    • Hello Heather, thanks for the link I bookmarked it and Iโ€™ll dig into his blog some.

      My son will have a cow if he ever come across this thread with me talking about this topic and mentioning him ๐Ÿ˜‰, Today was a big day for us, heโ€™s 17 almost 18 and got his drivers license ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰.

      We struggle with somethings and testing is one his anxiety level gets pretty high before a test then usually pulls it out ๐Ÿ˜. He passed it on his second try.

      We are all super proud of him!!

      sorry if I hijacked your thread ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • No hijacking at all. I am thrilled for your son! Driving is second nature to me as I figured out how to do it and how to start my older sister's car to "practice" around the cul de sac when I was in 5th grade. Driving and having my own car gave me such a sense of freedom. It is an incredible gift!
      I highly recommend reading Look Me In The Eye. John has led a very amazing life. He was a guitar tech for Kiss (I think) and has done so many amazing things. His book made me feel so hopeful after I got my diagnosis and it made me laugh.
