While I feel mostly at home here there are some areas where I don't. Writing Style/Intelligence: I feel I am much less verbose, and my grammar and spelling is inferior to most posters. While I do feel my intelligence is fine it is well below the average member. I feel I am the only one here (and els...

A number of threads on the same topic occur often. Lately people are bringing back threads from several years ago and answering questions from OP's that have stopped posting here.

In the 1960's and 1970's among rich people seeing a psych started becoming chic. But in the lower middle class areas I grew up in there was still a large stigma involved..it was seen as the ultimate in giving up so if you had to see a psychiatrist you must be really crazy. They hid them away in a ro...

Thanks everyone. The main reason why I made this thread is that over the last few months I have been thinking about me, who am and where I stand in society with respect to everyone else. I was diagnosed nearly ten years ago now, and ever since then I have fought every step of the way because I want...

This particular thing a friend from high school said to me wasn't really related to my having traits of AS, per se, but I think it's still appropriate. What she told me was, "You know, LtlPinkCoupe, when I first met you during our freshman year, I thought you were kind of weird, but as I got to kno...

My question is this - do any of you excel at certain types of social interaction? If so, what sorts of situations? I work at a smoke shop as one of my jobs - I work about 86 hours a week in total - I pick jobs I like a lot though. I actually don't smoke tobacco, just other herbal plant matter, and ...

While I like the idea of a government built from the ground up to support the needs of aspies, ultimately I wouldn't support a country with an "aspies rule, NTs drool" attitude. Why? Because I support neurodiversity, and a part of supporting neurodiversity is in fact respecting NTs and their rights...

A government agency saying it is their fault not the Autistic persons fault. What a refreshing change. The defense will try and say he provoked it. Lets hope they fail.

From your post, it sounds like running for office wouldn't be suited for you. That doesn't rule out politics (you could work behind the scenes in a government office). Being an elected official, you are in the public eye 24/7. Everything you say or do will be put under a microscope, and your oppone...

Tailoring your message to specific audiences is a good skill to have. It can be the same message but worded differently as you have done. I hope your course survives because it is needed now more then at anytime. Same conformity emphases is happening at the elementary and high school level with the ...

I could not answer the question because it has varied so greatly at different stages of my life. I have been near "normal" both to the outside and inside, sad and lonely, functioning but unhappy, not functional and unhappy Nowadays based on what society judges I am dysfunctional in a lot of ways liv...
