I'm sorry that happened to you. It seems kinda silly. Would any shooter told their teacher about their plans? :D It's hard to be different. Still I don't believe most kids even the most oppressed would want to attack others randomly. And I hope that girl wasn't expelled just for carrying a knife. Un...

Never! In any situation I always fought to get the best spot in a room. Usually the one that gets the fullest view of the area. Surprisingly people usually let me have the best seat. They don't mind sitting with their backs to the open door and facing the wall. :D

Well. PE was the only class I couldn't get A and I've always put a lot of extra effort in. Everybody could tell I was lean and fit, but I failed at every sport. I never learned to ride a bicycle either. The one time I went roller skating was awful. My balance is rather poor. The only thing I was goo...

I know a few people who use "The Envelope System". You just take some cash out every month and stuff them into different envelopes, for gas, groceries, entertainment...etc. If you run out early then you don't spend any more. I know this might seem a bit outdated with all the online banking...

They did not specifically tell me anything, because I already knew everything at an early age. Read the 101 Questions about sex book when I was 9. And I was a late bloomer and didn't need to learn too soon anyway. Sex didn't feel like a big deal in my family. It's nice but not all that captivating o...

I think this might be a cultural thing. I grew up in a busy place and did not have much time or privacy. I never lacked friends, actually they tend to stick to me and wouldn't let go. :D Funny that despite tons of friends and social experience, I'm still autistic. It just doesn't come naturally. :(

I did the one in the first post during lunch and got 179. :D I do know that I'm smart, but probably not that smart. My real IQ is probably closer to 145 - 150. They asked for my age and gender and language. Maybe I got some bonus for being an old woman whose first language isn't English? :D

I don't like traveling. All the inconvenience aside, I just don't see the point. Who still need to go to another place in this day and age? :D I have unlimited access to documentaries and a huge projector screen if I want to experience somewhere, without being packed in with other tourists, craning ...

If it goes away then don't worry about it. When I was 14 I felt like I was dead and was viewing the "livings" from a ghost's perspective. 8O It went away after a couple weeks. I think it was just wacky teenage hormones.

You really don't have to worry about something that you have control over. Lots of people don't have kids and they're fine. I do think it's harder to be an autistic parent. Although for me personally, it's not too bad because we're all autistic and have similar preferences. My kids never had to wear...

I can feel food moving through my body easily. I used to be very thin so I thought that was the reason. Now I'm not thin at all and can still feel it. If I have the time to kill I spend a lot of time on the toilet just to get rid of some of the pressure. :o At least I've read a lot of books during t...

Keep your dream flexible and you'll less likely to be disappointed. And find a rich partner would help a lot. Parenting is hard enough without worrying about money. With that many kids you probably can't work. So it's important to find a partner who can pay for all that.

Not only are they, there are systems in place that force disabled people to be and to stay forever below the poverty line. You cant own things or save money, even your spouse can't have money to qualify for aid and so on. Many people actually have to get divorced and hand over their spouse ownershi...

Your suggestion is funny. :D I'm sure they're looking for certain things, but a truly experienced therapist would be impartial and know things can be complicated. People expect doctors to fix things, but mental health issues are difficult to fix. You gotta know what's wrong first, that task alone ca...

I'm energetic most days. The only time I feel tired is during my mom's marathon phone calls. I can only listen to so much rambling about her paperwork without getting drowsy. :D I do pace myself and give myself two calming breaks everyday and a lot of time for a good sleep. I eat my meals slowly, an...

I was born 6 weeks early but I was a good weight at over 7 lbs. I'm as autistic as my dad was so I doubt being born early was the cause. A lot of things in my early life could probably have improved but worse things have happened to babies, so I'm not complaining.
