I can't disagree with what you've said.I fully admit that I've been sheltered somewhat from life's storms.

WP is much more relatable for me. As for further education ..... I've been very avoidant when it comes to that i.e I have, over the years, brushed aside more than a few suggestions to do a college course. My care coordinator put that down to 'bullying related trauma' when I recently opened up about ...

I'm very much bound to where I am, because of a poor sense of direction and fear of getting lost. I have what I call my 'safe zone'. Even that's been drastically reduced, as a result of the falls I had and lower back pain. There just seems to be this insurmountable gap between the people I mentioned...

I'm high-masking autistic, and I spend 98% of my day on the internet, playing video games on my Switch, drawing or doodling, or working on arts and crafts. I'm lucky I don't have problems with some everyday adult things like doing laundry, taking out the garbage, or cooking my own meals. But then a...

I think it's the number of people you get there doing things like getting degrees,PhDs, book deals, great jobs etc while supposedly having incredibly severe sensory and other autistic symptoms at the same time. I get the impression from there that the very smallest of things can cause a heightened s...

The lower the RTSD the better. My best. https://i.imgur.com/VM0UHcY.png I average about 28. I am probably going to have some fun with getting people to take this. I am probably being a fool by getting excited about one of these things finally saying I am a genius. I am not sure when old age starts....

The lower the RTSD the better. My best. Younger people have faster reactions,generally speaking. https://i.imgur.com/VM0UHcY.png I average about 28. A claim that the Victorians were smarter than us. http://charltonteaching.blogspot.com/2012/06/taking-on-board-that-victorians-were.html

I was at boarding school from the age of 8-18. There was next to zero chance of dropping out. I was a mediocre student. Definitely not an academic high flier. I like doing quizzes and tests from those Playbuzz quizzes to heavyweight tests. I eventually got into high range IQ tests at the start of 20...

I don't hide the fact I struggle with some things. I maybe have some mannerisms that make me look as though I'm stupid. At the same time I score higher than these people on the World genius directory Dr Eick Sternhagen Fields of education: Economy, Latin, ev. theology, Doctorate in Latin of late Mid...

It has my flat keys and other keys on it. I'd expect a member of the general public to respond in that way, far more than a trained health professional.

My daughter took me in the wheelchair to have my flu jab. The bloke who was going to give the jab talked to me as though I was several sandwiches short of a picnic. I think it was the combo of the wheelchair and the autism lanyard round my neck. I think that in a wheelchair= must be a bit simple min...

I think a lot of people on WP, and elsewhere too, think I'm thick.

Now that for the most part Asperger’s is not an official diagnosis but a colloquial term Aspergers is considered a socially awkward person with high to genius intelligence.


Is that just your interpretation ,or one that many people have?

First saw a pdoc autumn 1973. First diagnosed with SMI (schizophrenia) 1975. Asperger's 2019. The dx confirmed I was right in thinking there was more going on than SMI. However too much damage was done pre the Asperger's dx that can't be reversed. I have to live with the consequences of that as best...

Tbh, it's easy to mask learning disabilities buy not pursuing the subjects we struggle with. A person can be brilliant at languages, but struggle with maths for example. Some time ago I read an article that autists are divided into three learning groups: verbal, visual and pattern thinkers. And for...
