Your electronics background might put you in an advantag...

I was just curious if people had dental experiences where the local anesthetic Novocain seemed particularly effective or ineffective for people with Aspergers.

I have always had to have multiple shots for any effect.

Some people feel that they are the only ones who are allowed to be offended. If you suggest that they might cause offense...well you have seen the reaction. Now that you have seen the reaction, you know what to avoid. One aspect that may have future consequences is that if you are receiving disabili...

Your wanting to try is a good sign. Sometimes it can be helpful to think "outside the box". If your family is upset with you for not recognizing what they expect you to, you might ask them of the could signal you each time this happens. For example, if you made a game of it such as their t...

One might expect that a condition resulting from a neurological variant that presents with a more complex, faster, or sensitive neurology would tend to amplify neurological sensations such as anxiety and depression. One might try to dull the sensations with drugs or alcohol. One might try to focus a...

Suicide can seem like a rational option simply because it seems to offer an end to difficulties. This can seem even more attractive if one has not much experience overcoming difficulties. You sound like a person that could offer much to someone else. You might also be able to receive much from someo...

Using the neurological variant model of Aspergers (faster, more complex, or more sensitive neurology), one might see logical analysis as a coping strategy for the neurologically diverse. Those who do not have to deal with an avalanche of sensations and thoughts may be more free to indulge in what pr...

I wouldn't make too much of a diagnosis. The categorization opinion of someone has little value unless it opens the door to needed services. What is more important is to identify what skills need to be developed or improved so that the highest degree of function can be obtained. There are going to b...

You might want to err on the side of caution. You might find that rather than using an "autism" label, you may satisfactorily explain things in terms of effect. For example, "You have to excuse me, sometimes I get too focused." "Is it OK to turn off some of the lights, somet...

You might want to look into diet and nutrition aspects as well. Less exposure to sunlight may mean a drop in vitamin D. Hopefully it isn't something like Lyme disease. It may be something as common as the dreaded disease AGE.

The spotlight has ruined many lives. Perhaps because it highlights the superficial or perhaps because it makes one a target. However, perhaps the greatest harm come from the distance it takes one from truth.

Up until 100 years ago most people lived and died in the towns in which they were born. Larger families resulted in one's friends usually being siblings and cousins. Society today is built on mobility, and communication technology. In addition to the fragmentation and shrinkage of families, having t...

The same neurological variant that produces faster, more complex, or more sensitive neurology, may also present with the neurology that produces a higher IQ.

There is a joke in Mensa that if you do not have Aspergers it is because someone else took the test for you.

When I was single I used to travel. Once I tried fishing by going into a bait shop on a lake in California and telling the guy I would like to go fishing, but I didn't know the first thing about it. He was very helpful and not only because I purchased the equipment and rented a boat. One can go hors...

don’t ever compare me to you again. We are nothing alike you got that? In a way it is sort of a compliment. Such a statement conveys a wealth of information. One can find hurt, selfishness, and a presumption of dictatorial authority. The phrase "How sharper than a serpent's tooth, a thankless ...
