I agree that the combined effect of the lies can make people feel suicidal at times. I'm not quite sure if you mean we shouldn't articulate or take notice of them, should just try and be happy? I think we have to be clear about the discrimination we face in order to challenge it, even if only in ou...

Yes. They read and reread my diagnostic report. Was surprised at first that my dad reacted that way because he does not have much stamina as has stopped reading newspapers, magazines in the last few years. Since the diagnostic report is difficult reading with statistical jargon etc I thought he woul...

It's mostly adult aspies who have our own sub-culture and believe we don't have a horrible disease that must be cured or we'll all become serial killers or be miserable our whole lives, contrary what Autism Speaks may think, but a lot of parents with autistic or aspie kids would do anything to see ...

I agree with the observations and reasoning of the OP (noticed like a lot of posters I wrote OP instead of the more personal StarTrekker)

I did get a licence but it quickly became apparent that I am to un coordinated to drive safely. I can honestly say that not driving probably marginalizes me as much if not more then my other more direct autism traits. It has automatically eliminated me from consideration from countless jobs. People ...

I don't really care about the average NT in the street thinks. If you have been reading my posts you know what I care about is professionals that think we are deliberately lying to gain disability benefits, Aspergers doesn't exist in adults or females, Aspergers is overdiagnosed. it is mostly people...

I don't think most people my age unless they knew somebody on the spectrum would know more about Autism the "Rain Man" and they certainly would not know enough about it to think of me as autistic. As for Aspergers if asked they might remember hearing the word somewhere.

Not enough information to speculate if you were misdiagnosed.

IF YOU HAD ASPERGERS IN CHILDHOOD you have it now even if you would not meet the criteria now. As you said you learned skills and found ways to cope.

Either way bieng "functional" and enjoying it is a good thing.

I would say more that Autistic traits not Autism itself is what employers do not like. As the OP has noticed "don't think just do", "Get it done yesterday" and figure out what we really want not what we said is what employers want.

I don't like because what follows is suggestions that I have already tried, are are just wrong for me, or that I have heard before many times. Then I have to pretend to be appreciative
