Fired his gun into his mouth in an attempt to kill himself as he was being arrested, he is now stable but expected to never be able to talk again. Really? I had not heard that his wound was self inflicted. None of it is confirmed but there are lots of unofficial accounts that he tried to take his o...

I am the same. I feel that there is a pressure or an expectancy with someone I have met before

Appreciate the kind words, it would definately be my plan to keep it to myself. I have always worked and actually done fairly well in my career so don't see a potential ASD diagnosis as something that has held me back, I would just like to know for my own knowledge and can then use it to start a pla...

33 year old here, just recently self diagnosed and waiting for my appointment with a professional to get a diagnosis. Spoke to my mum recently about things for the first time and said I think I may have ASD. She wasn't hugely surprised (which surprised me) and we talked it over and I wanted her opin...

I am self diagnosed for about 2-3 months after going through a particularly difficult spell. I am 33 and have always been a very anxious person who prefers to keep themselves away from others but there are many things I have been learning about ASD that tie in with my behavior and how I feel. in par...

What is the process for getting a diagnosis? multiple sessions where ...

http://boston.barstoolsports.com/random-thoughts/4chans-marathon-investigation/ Not quite sure what to make of this to be honest. I am more interested in the thought that thanks to technology future incidents could be 'solved' in this way (not that this is solved, I think you know what I mean though)

Hahaha...SO like me! I can't tell you how often this happens to me because something in the film reminded me of something else, and then off I go. I've gotten to the point where I'm worthless in movie theatres because I lose track of what's happening in the film, and there's no rewind button there....

in terms of pretend play, I am forever reminded by my family that when I was young I pretty much lived in a fantasy world and told outlandish lies all the time. This faded off as I went through junior & primary schools but I do wonder these days if that would have been related to ASD Any thoughts?

I certainly do not conform in terms of fashions and music.

Deffo not a try hard nonconformist but there have been moments where it has felt nice to be a bit more unique than others in my interests

Had to go to quite a few business meetings where I just end up literally saying nothing and let everyone else talk. It's been quite embarrassing at times but once at the end of a meeting the customer said something along the lines of 'I like this one (pointing at me), the one who holds the power is ...

Usually avoid, even people I know well, just find it all too awkward. Shopping is the worst for me, I no longer use local shops in case I bump into someone I know and have to say hello to them, I use shops near my work now as I am pretty much guaranteed to not see anyone I know. There has been more ...

Stolen from elsewhere : 'twitter is at it's best 10 minutes after a disaster, and at it's worst 10 hours after'

The volume of photo's of the wrong 8 year old boy is really quite sad, and must be quite upsetting to relatives that see them.
