In some ways . I wonder if all these, sometime contradictory diagnostic traits and issues, are not like a form of MPD, where we keep trying to switch from one of our selves to the other to adapt to our changing external and internal environments . Tell me more about this. I'm not sure if I fully un...

I think I get why you might think it's stim, since it achieves some of the same goals as stimming...ie, stimulating yourself , self soothing yourself . I know it freaks a lot of people out...though it is perfectly except-able to hurt yourself if you become a boxer or wear a football helmet first . ...

I don't know how to respond since my usual interaction with humans is either to blurt out what is preoccupying my mind or to look for a question I can answer . I'm very rusty in people skills after years of staying away from them but .... That said, I appreciate your post because it feels comforting...

Anyone want to help a very inexperienced computer person figure out if someone has spyware/rootkit on my computer ? I got a message the other day from my security Avast, the paid one not the free one and they said they detected a possibly malicious rootkit . Had no idea what that meant but stated a ...

I appears that the organization that posted this is no longer up-dating ? I wonder if they became a new organization or just gave up ? Something similar happened to my sister after she attempted suicide . This was in US not NHS but she was put on about 10 different medications in the period of 2 wee...

Congratulations on the positive human interaction . Sounds like relocating is a positive goal and as a female, I think your right in assuming that she was giving you signs that she would like to get to know you better .

I thought cold weather increased your metabolism because you use extra energy maintaining your body temperature ? I do hate hot weather because I sweat so much and hate feeling sticky but I wasn't like that as a kid so I don't think it's related to my Aspergers . I also have more rigid muslce tone a...

I have always been a fast reader and I'm sure I had the same kind of lessons in reading but I think my brain had already remapped itself when it couldn't solve the reading problem the way it was being taught to me . When I am reading it is like watching a movie, I need to read fast enough to make th...

I thought it was hysterical that the reporter said the police were aware of the individuals autism and had been trained in how to deal with it.....evidently their training says....."Shot them in the head".....I think this officer may have gotten his training mixed up because that is what your suppos...

I'm afraid I don't have any solutions but have had the same issues my whole life . I never realized that this was a real thing....avid readers who can't spell, until I met other aspies .

I really like the show . Of course Garys character is not going to represent every autistics experience or personality but I like him and see enough of my own quirks to at least feel like the writers of the show "get" more of who I am then the average TV show . He may offer comic relief for some peo...

I like the symbols you have created and once learned they would be helpful except that communication involves everyone agreeing on the symbols and my problems inverting numbers was related to a job where I had to write down numbers for others as well as myself . I was always an avid reader so assume...
