when you go out to a movie but you don't enjoy it because the whole time you,re thinking about how much better you'd be able to see the movie if you were 3 seats over because then you'd be in dead center but now your off to one side a little bit and you keep on looking at the people in the dead cen...

I absolutely hated the portrayal of Aspergers I mean Donald and Isabels portrayal was good if not a little bit more severe than usual but that support group!? Those people DID NOT have Aspergers! They were SEVERELY AUTISTIC! That LIE stating ...

I've been trying/needing to learn a foreign language for YEARS for college. It's made me not able to graduate so many times. Do Aspies have a harder time learning a language? Part of it is just practical... I hadn't studied the language in a few years, then tried to pick it back up. I still find fo...

This is how I completely feel except in my heart I've kind of accepted I'll probably never meet a life companion and I'm gradually trying to think and do what I truly want to do with my life. I received a great feeling of liberation from this but when the sexual impulses come I feel really bad and ...

I have seen so many threads with this kind of title on WP and since you only joined WP in Feb and this is your 8th post, I wondered if perhaps you are a troll?

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and suggest you read some quality Asperger's reference books to answer this question.

I have mixed thoughts and feelings about meeting up. I don't live in the UK but if a meeting was arranged near where I live I am not even sure I would attend that! I enjoy the annonymity of WP and the fact that I can choose my level of engagement and am free not to respond to direct questions and to...

I was in London in 1996 and went to see a doctor (GP). I had been reading about ADHD (ADD as it was called then) She hadn't heard of ADD. When I mentioned that 15% + of children (at the time) had ADD, she stopped writing, put down her pen, crossed her arms an told me that this was 'normal'. The body...

In answer to the actual thread question..... In social situations, I am instinctively in collecting and exchanging information mode. It is analytical and formal. I am now aware of this and very occasionally can dumb it down to social situations. This generally involves following instead of leading w...

I didn't/couldn't read the opening post so I am responding to the thread question. My Clinical Psychologist has mentioned that AS can/does get 'worse' with age. I can confirm this in my case. I started on Lexapro 5 months ago and Straterra 2 months ago as I was finding it harder to cope. I have pres...

My former therapist gave me a copy at this book at the end of our last session together. She was in tears when I left. I really enjoyed this book and it was very easy to recognise myself in the character of The Little Prince. I think I will re read it this weekend. Thank you for reminding me.
