I've come up with a list of common social skills, in no particular order. Communication - B+, I don't have a problem communicating in general with family, partner and colleagues, such as asking for things or problem solving, etc Assertiveness - C average, because I'm assertive to people I know well ...

My social skills are "spiky", so I can't just give myself one grade. I have a different grade for different social skills and it's impossible to give myself one overall grade.

I wasn't planning on joining any forums, but when I first had internet in my house (in late 2009) I finally had the private opportunity to research autism to try to understand my diagnosis better. After a couple of months of googling about autism, I inadvertently stumbled upon a WP thread and I had ...

It all depends on the time of the year. I like the rain in the autumn, winter and early spring, but not too much rain in the summer months, unless it's at night. I don't mind thundery showers in the spring and summer months, but not persistent rain.

Murder is never an answer. If the mother was that exhausted and stressed then she should have just hit her or something. Yes I know hitting is wrong and everything but it's still better than killing.

Bloody upstairs neighbour, always doing some noisy activity or some sort of activity that involves moving around for hours, ie obsessive cleaning. I need to listen out for a delivery but I find it difficult to ignore her banging noises up above, but I can't use earplugs because I need to listen out ...

Greg, Manny Rowley and Fregley from the Wimpy Kid series, all seem to have different examples of Asperger's. I've always been able to relate to Greg the most. He's not a psychopath like many people on the internet says he is. To me he just seems like a Aspie with NT traits who is unaware that he has...

We rely on the NHS over here, and if the government let that go down the toilet then the working class are in s**t street. The NHS is already letting people down. And it's not that easy to just start taking out health insurance and things like that over here, because we've all relied on the NHS all ...

I definitely wouldn't suggest it's autism alone, a part of it seems like self-fulfilling prophecy because of how much you've had to deal with feeling excluded. That part might come up in a lot of people who might deal with involuntary solitude - anxiety, fear of rejection, etc drive a lot of the st...

Have you ever tried affirmations? When you catch yourself in that cycle, argue with it, dismiss it and invalidate it by reminding yourself of your inherent value and of your successes, remind yourself you've got friends, you've got a partner, you've got people who care and support you. Depression m...

Do you ever make yourself or others laugh without intending to (I believe this is called "dry humour" but I'm not sure)? Like the other evening my boyfriend was in the bathroom and he called my name, so on the way to the bathroom I said, "it wasn't me" even though I didn't know w...
