My brother has been diagnosed with Asperger's but didn't have trouble with social skills as a child at school. He was on the shy side, lacked confidence and hated sports, yet he still fitted in with the popular boys all through school and made friends easily. Also your son must be quite severe if yo...

I'm the opposite from you in this thread, because I actually feel weird saying I have autism instead of saying I have Asperger's. I know autism means everything nowadays but to me it just feels weird calling myself autistic. Autism reminds me of clever people with restrictive interests, visibly stim...

Nobody else I know are into writing. I get hooked on a movie or TV series then really want to write a story about it. But when I try to make up my own characters they never seem as good as the real characters in the movie/TV series. So I end up just using those characters instead, but making up my o...

No need to print your text. When you've typed it in let others read it on your screen or send it to trusted friends as a PDF. When you are happy upload it to Amazon. Yes but I meant by doing that they'll have to read it from a screen and sometimes it's easier to read from a book, as some of my rela...

I just feel bad for possibly making them feel bad Yes this is exactly how I feel too. I have my moments like that in work too. It doesn't happen often now though. I just adjusted to ignoring stuff like assuming it happens in a lot of work places to a lot of other people anyway. It does happen to ev...

Thank you for your input. I worry about placebo, as I'm a huge sucker for placebo. It takes me an extremely long time to actually decide to go on meds. I hesitated to go on antidepressants for about 4 years before I decided to - because the rage outbursts I kept having were getting out of hand. I st...

Well the reason why I wrote them on paper is because I like to write whilst in the bath, and also it's easier to pass around the family without them having to need a computer or phone to read. I like handwriting much better than typing. I use my phone nearly all the time when online, hardly ever the...

I do have LibraOffice Writer on my computer but I want my document in book format, but I can't find the option anywhere. There's literally everything but. Also I get frustrated typing on a computer keyboard. And it will literally take ages to type up my stories, as each book is actually quite long, ...

I've been invited for an appointment to discuss ADHD medication and I'm not sure I want to or not, as I like some of my ADHD traits and it makes me who I am (unlike Asperger's). But one thing that makes me socially awkward the most is giving in to impulses. I can be very impulsive. I notice and unde...

I empathise with you. I get tearful whenever someone snaps at me, then I beat myself up for making such a dumb mistake and I feel embarrassed and bad afterwards. It's so hard not to cry. I usually hold the tears back the best I can while I'm finding a place to go to let it out in private, like a res...

Oh by the way as a child I found it easy to be friends with other girls. I only had one male friend that I played with that lived in my street, because he was the nearest child to play with outside of school. Otherwise at school I always played with other girls and I hardly ever played with boys. Bu...

I tend to find guys easier to befriend. But I thought guys in general were just easier to build relationships with because they aren't as shallow as most women. Usually men on the spectrum find it harder to find a girlfriend than women on the spectrum, and usually women on the spectrum find it harde...

Sometimes I don't fully want to give people things, but I feel selfish if I don't. That might partly be from "appeasement" behaviours that I have, since I was called selfish by my immediate family a lot. I had to "give" a lot to be treated with respect. Ah, that's because you're...

I've written 4 books (3 sequels to the first book) about my life. Each book is a different year of my life (mostly during the teen years). I so badly want to see if I can self publish but even after researching about it on the internet I still have no idea of what to do. I really need to chat to som...

Aren't people with downs syndrome and William's syndrome often "too friendly" too? I don't think I'm "too friendly", as I do have social boundaries. But I have been accused of being nosy though, because of wanting to be emotionally involved in the gossip in the workplace. But I ...
