I have never been to a group before. However, there is an autism support/social group at my university. I have been thinking that if my attempt to go back to university in a couple of weeks works out, I might then try the group :) .

I think you're right that people can often be wrong about that. Since most people tend to make assumptions based off of appearances, and autistic people often might have problems expressing their emotions or miscommunicate it by not having the correct body language or something, most people might ge...

Greetings LadyLucifer, I agree that ASD can often feel like a curse, but I do truly believe there are some positive aspects as well. In any case, we can't change that fact about us, so we have to find a way to live with it. I hope that you find useful information on these forums and that maybe it ma...

I'm no expert, so my advice isn't serious, but I definitely have an interest, so I will give my take. You are absolutely right that assault doesn't have to be physical. Psychological or other types of attacks are just as punishable by law, especially if it's clear the other person knows the effect i...

Welcome Solarwolf :) That describes exactly how I was and still am :lol: . I think by joining a forum such as this you're indicating you are at least open to trying to be more social and make friends, and I think that's an important first step (I did so for same reason). Hope you learn some cool thi...

Well, I have been playing a large amount of Overwatch recently . I'm still relatively new, but liking it a lot so far and getting a lot better :) . I don't drink though, so can't really participate in a drinking game :lol: . I propose drinking every time enemy picks Pharah! None of the few things I ...

Welcome Dragonfly! I think you will find that masking and the effect it has on delaying diagnosis is a really common theme around here :lol: . Glad that you finally figured things out!, now you are going to have to decide whether dealing with constant sensory overload is worth it. As far as the acti...

It’s like totally embarrassing me for too because I get these weird attachments with that person thinking oh maybe we are friends when really I think they must have talked to me out of pity and I have had people say they straight up cant be my friend because I dont understand the same language skil...

I absolutely agree, but it's hard for me to be brave and be myself since I have had the pressures to fit in drilled into me throughout childhood (when I wasn't aware of my diagnosis and just assumed there was something wrong with me). Over the last years, however, I have realized that faking yoursel...

Welcome Olivia, It does seem like that there are still a lot of misunderstanding about ASD out there, so it's not too surprising that you weren't aware about all aspects of it before. It was kind of the same way for me, never even considered it or researched it because it didn't seem super severe un...

Welcome Alisandra, Hope you enjoy the forum. I can definitely relate to the feeling of masking your entire life and how it makes it a long and difficult process to get a correct diagnosis. For me even after I finally got it, it is sometimes hard to understand where the fake persona to fit in ends an...

Welcome Heather, I actually had the same exact experience when I got my diagnosis super late of intensely analyzing past situations and rethinking them. It's understandable to be nervous but remember that just because you received a diagnosis doesn't mean you are a different person, you are still th...

Heya Argonaut! Glad that you found some relief with this new information. Hope that helps you moving forward. I'm interested to know whether you think it would've changed any of your decisions if you knew beforehand. I'm a history student too, although nowhere near PhD yet. Don't feel stupid about i...

I definitely have times when I hate myself, but it's never for being Autistic, I didn't even know I had it until recent years. Even now that I know, it is one of the few things that I do not blame myself for, although maybe some of the things I blame myself for are in part caused by my autism.

There is one thing that struck me as strange on dating websites. One of the most cited qualities that a girl/woman desires in a man is "a good sense of humor". Yeah, I think a lot of people say stuff like that but there is no actual definition of what a good sense of humor is since obviou...

You don't choose your name but you can choose your username. Honestly, I wouldn't mind being referred to as sloth IRL :) And yeah there was one point where I was so anti-social and paranoid that I deleted all my social media and tried to scrub clean everything on the internet about me :oops: , so ev...
