Her new album, as well as the Live In London album, are both great. I had front row seats for her concert here a while back and it was an amazing show. I actually prefer the solo versions of the new songs like on the live album.

I think for many of us sensory issues ebb & flow. I know that sometimes I'm extremely sensitive to noise, lights, etc., while at other times not so much. The changes may be triggered by mood, stress, hormones, etc.

Si 82 this is not just an AS/NT issue. It is a man woman issue. Quite true. A lot of NT/NT couples go through the same types of things. Of course, NT/AS may have additional difficulties to overcome. I'm an AS married to an NT and it's not always easy, but communication is the best way to bridge the...

I hate verbal instructions. Please write it down and/or show me how to do it. Visual cues plaese.

Special interests can change over time. They can swing back and forth between different ones.
There's no easy answer as everyone is different.

A lot of Aspies are creative and imaginative. The problem is how NTs look at us. They keep trying to judge us by their standards, which don't really work/fit. When they take the time to look at us as our own people, they find that we are a lot more than the standard definition. Unfortunately, the de...

I am aware this is bound to offend most people on the site, but I am quite disappointed that Numan is not officially on the spectrum. He has the money, why doesn't he get a diagnosis? Until he gets one, I will no longer view him as being "one of us." I could understand if he didn't have money, but ...

For many Austistics, it's not so much the idea of a "cure" that they are against, but the fact that Autism Speaks purports to speak for Autistic people . Yet they rarely let any Autistics actually "speak," and even less, actually listen to the thoughts and opinions of Autistics. The only time they h...

If an Aspie is in shutdown mode, don't expect to hear from them until they are ready. "Shutdown" means just that. When I do it, the outside world disappears to me…
