Most people are not rude, when I ask questions. A few of my previous bosses were, because I ask questions to make advances at work. My boss wants me to remain a "beginning colleague", she refused to answer and gets angry. She wants to continue "babysitting" me. If other colleague...

I know a severely autistic young man, who can barely talk or care for himself, but he is excellent at finding his way and reading maps, and also telling the time without a watch i.e. he knows what time of day it is without looking at a timepiece/phone etc. I am the same. Good at reading maps and fi...

I can get mine out with squeezing most of the time so I would try that as well. It's difficult to start cutting and stabbing oneself with a needle , so I only do it as a last resort. You are solutions based, you might like coding/programming? A long time ago, I did like coding or progamming. But en...

Yesterday I was at a party with many other co-workers. We were sitting at a wooden table. A small wood splinter entered in the skin of the hand of the co-worker who was sitting next to me. She tried to thrive it out by squeezing. I said to her: "Why don't you walk to the personnel of this pub a...

I think I don't have that problem, but I notice that there are several ways of learning things. One way is listening to a teachter together with other students in a classroom, even the lesson is very long, 6 hours or so. That works the best for me. I can interact with the teacher and understand thin...

Are you saying that cognitive rigidity is something that NTs struggle with? My understanding is that cognitive rigidity is not the same as refusing to look at things from different perspectives but having difficulties doing so. In case of work, I don't know. I wouldn't expect them to be more cognit...

Why when I show odd beliefs and behaviors related to Autism Spectrum Disorder, the police do not really care? They just analyze my odd behaviors and drive by. I tend to try my best to mask my symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder in front of police officers, but not all the time. Autistics are not a...

By the way, abroad I often eat food of the local cuisine. Sometimes I like it, although I don't know what it is. I have never problems with that. I am curious and like trying out new things. In South Africa and Russia I have been eating several things without any problems.

Curious if anyone would like to share their thoughts on being in the spectrum and their relationship with Alcohol. I'm happy to share my experiences in due course. I almost never drink alcohol. I won't drink it: - when I have to drive on the same day; - when I have to bike on the same day; - when I...

Overstimulation is very rare in my case, so it doesn't mean they would not happen. If there is an overstimulation, I shut down (I may "record" sound, but not interpret it. Interpretation happens immediately after an autistic start-up). I need a few seconds to organize my intellectual syste...

I feel like I have a lot of stomach and gastrointestinal issues for along time. Like I have wet farts and diarrhea and that kind of stuff. Can anyone else relate? I know someone that has digestive problems (maybe similar to what you are describing). He is autistic, have dyscalculia (problems with s...

It depends on the employer. In most cases, though, I wouldn't disclose. If you worked in computers/IT, then I might consider it. In a blue collar situation, certainly not. On my job, no way would I disclose. Not disclosing is a good idea. I trusted my boss a bit too much, and I notice that he treat...

The theory about Putin having autism is just that----a theory. Most of the time, autism is precluded for Putin, actually. What is there to admire in Putin? I get very disappointed in the presidents from Western Europe, Canada and the United States. They work together to create a world that I do not...

Why does every evil dictator have to have autism for? :roll: Good point you see such narratives in Hollywood movies The good guys are always good looking funny and socially gifted The bad evil doers are always the opposite and sometimes “autistic like”. You see this in US movies about ordinary Russ...

Yes westerners are not that welcome there at the moment so if they see a European no plate you may be targeted by police or angry locals or just someone looking for a fight. If you go fly in via Turkey or Israel and hire a car at the airport I won't go to Russia with my own car. I will fly to Russi...
