Ok DamnPortlanders, I need a DamnPsychiatrist. Specifically one who specializes in autism and who doesn't demean patients. Every one I've been to treats me like I don't exist--the last one I saw, said to be the best in the city, spent the whole time talking to my PARENTS and acting like I wasn't even in the room. Until I turned off the lamp next to me and he laid this passive-aggressive shit on me about asking permission (for the record, there was a lot of light coming in from outside *and* a lit lamp next to him).
I'm 29 and expect to be treated as such. Anyone have a doctor who actually respects their autistic patients?
Oh yeah, taking Providence/OHP would be great too.
Any of you fine DPers know anywhere in Portland that rents tents? Not the big kind for weddings and funerals, but the kind you sleep in.
Also, where's the best place to get a good quality, affordable tent? I know about REI and Next Adventure. Is there any other place to try?
I know that there are many of us here who are searching for work, so thought it'd be a good place to ask...
After applying for a job (assuming you have a contact name/number/email):
1. How long do you wait before you call back to "inquire about your application"?
2. What do you say when you call back?
3. Have you ever emailed instead? If so, what were the results?
What is one (or what are some) of the happiest moments you've ever had in your life?
Share whatever you like - but I encourage you to really set the scene for us. How were all your senses engaged? Who was involved, where, when? Why was the experience significant? How does it make you feel now to think of it?
