No. Try not to fall down the stairs and die at Minds & Hearts. :P (Kinda makes you wonder why they have such there when the people they see are often pathologically clumsy.) They don't use the DSM, just FYI and all. They use Gillberg's Criteria for Asperger's (well, that's the list the lady had...

I think you should think carefully about a diagnosis. Can you achieve your objectives without having an official label applied to you? If at all possible you should try to stay away from having something attached to you that can be used against you - which is what could occur if you are officially d...

Obviously I cannot know how much of your perception of the situation is correct, so is it you or him? Don't know.
One thing that does sound clear though is that the RELATIONSHIP certainly is toxic to you in its current form.

Arguing that there is a risk to the unborn child won't do. There are always risks, even with genetically diverse couples, and no one is interfering with them or forcing them to have abortions. You can't say it's unnatural because sibling animals mate all the time. And when children with problems ar...

Nope, sorry.

Behaviour modification as a child has left me too compliant as it is.
No ways I am adding anything into my system that will make me artificially trusting too.

But if it works for you, don't let me stop you...

Why on earth would AS be a problem?? I'd say people with AS are BETTER drivers, because they observe better, posses more logical thinking and are more "bulletproof" against road rage. They also tend to be less agressive drivers. Am i missing something here? Well, in my case there is one thing that ...

It took me 5 years of learning before I was ready to go for my practical driver's test and even then I did not feel ready just had to start at a new university the next week where I had to drive myself but I managed to pass that. Try to start out with a lot of basic "control the car" practice until ...

I have often found that I have crossed into groups into violation of non-verbal group boudaries that was set up to keep outsiders away. This I think is a necessary part of maintaining a clique and if this indiference/unawareness is widespread then I can see that aspies would have trouble maintaining...

This difference is a disputed matter in the research with some studies finding a difference while many other studies find no difference between the two. In any case the list you gave is the differences that have been proposed but these differences have not been consistently found in enough studies. ...

Although there is a certain comfort and attraction in Yin, the most energy is found in the transition and to be stuck in either is too static and ultimately death. I voted both - for the dynamic interchange between the two - life. I would not want to be forced to remain in either of the two but if I...

Well, for what it's worth, it won't go away. People STILL say that to me. :D And many of you have the same reason I do, when you did try talking it didn't work. Of course, with me if I do talk I can easily forget and monopolize the conversation. So it's better for everyone if I don't say anything. ...

It has been said that demons specialise in "giving you exactly what you asked for and precisely what you didn't want".
