Unfortunately we don't live in a fair and just society. Don't be too trusting. Don't come and go too much on social media. If you get the cold shoulder from someone you MUST leave them alone. I did not do those things and I have been humiliated and manipulated. You can be the most virtuous, well-mea...

I met so many people in the past who knew nothing about autism. And because I was an attractive woman it made things even harder. And I am sure that there are still plenty of ignorant people who employ autistic women, who disclose their condition, and these women get no understanding or support. The...

I have seen a lot of people on this site refer to "the neurotypicals," which only makes me wonder how much better things will get in this world. One group of people against another. Stigma is sad. I'm not a senior citizen, a man, or a person with superpowers. Savants have superpowers. Men ...

I think it's a blessing to be able to have a career, children, and be on the autism spectrum. While I am sure there are daily challenges, because work and parenting are like that, it's a full existence. Kids today know they have autism. There are plenty of women my age, and even relatives of mine, w...

I'm "pretty" but I was also born on the autism spectrum so "pretty" hasn't given me the advantages I thought it would give. It doesn't matter what you look like in this world. What matters is how much you like yourself. We are all, no matter what we look like, just getting throug...

I just want to feel safe where I live and go to work. I can't live with my parents. I want to sleep at night and do the things I like to do in my spare time.
You can't keep someone up for days and hack them endlessly. It's abusive.

All my life...sabotage. Over and over and over and over. I feel like I have nothing. For one year, I finally knew what it felt like to be everything I wanted to be. And enough people know now about what happened and how I feel about things. i was a full-time teacher in a public school. Two of them, ...

How have people humiliated you in your life? I've been called a "jerk." I've been called "sick." I've been called "unintelligent." My voice has been mocked. I used to have a bigger nose, so people made fun of that. I've been excluded and unemployed for many, many, exten...

I'm "pretty," but really, I'm not one of those girls who ever used it to her advantage. I was never very flirtatious with men. I'm heterosexual, and I believe in real friendship and actual dating. I've always had high standards when it's come to men. But being "pretty" has made t...

A person is more than just their autism. There are just more hurdles for us to overcome. Men and women.

I used to have parents who acted more like parents. They've said terrible things to me out of anger and then wonder why I feel disrespected. I don't really know them anymore. I once respected them, despite their imperfections. They were all I knew, I had no other choice but to do what they said. The...

I am, and have often been, an easy target for those who feel they need to prove their worth to themselves.

That's unfortunate, and very sad.

The people I remember from my past (and/or speak fondly of) are the ones who were just plain nice and courteous. It's not hard. The ones who took my hard work personally, and used it against me; the ones who promised me things and didn't deliver- those people are the worst. If we are going to evolve...
