In my experience of looking for work from home jobs, most require a specialized skill (i.e. programming) or are customer service jobs (not aspie friendly). But I think in the future more and more jobs will be offered as remote positions. I always check these two sites: http://www.skipthedrive.com/ ...

This seems to bother people, I've seen it mentioned on other sites with news stories like the one posted....I guess it would take as long as it takes for someone to notice an odd smell from the neighboring apartment.

What are some jobs/careers that usually offer the option to work from home? What kind of background is needed to get the job? Here are two jobs that I know: - Clinical Research Associate (CRA): this job can be done from home but also requires some travel. I've applied for a few and got rejection ema...

My conclusion is that my eyes look different. I got this idea after reading several internet posts about how NTs are very sensitive to reading people's eye areas. Maybe my eyes look sad or "dead" to them. On top of that, I probably have stiff body language that NTs interpret as odd or ina...

It's almost like they're not used to communicating with someone with autism as they're not accustomed to it. I think they're a bit out of their comfort zone and don't know how to communicate. Yep because for them communication is more about eye expressions, facial expressions, body language, and to...

I've experienced the same thing for a long time. I remember it happening several times at a school club I joined and also whenever I spoke to cashiers. I brought it up to a counselor, and she said that victims of childhood abuse tend to be more sensitive to negative facial expressions. That might be...

I had this problem too in college. I had entire courses that were basically group projects. The worst was physics lab because not only did I have to work in a group during class, but we also turned in one assignment as a group. Which meant we had to meet up each week to work on it. I honestly feel l...

It does seem like you can get a STEM job without networking simply because those jobs are in such high demand. I guess you're out of luck if you suck at STEM like me (I have NVLD). Really? I have a STEM degree and it's been totally useless...I graduated a year and a half ago and have yet to secure ...

Me. I have never been on a date, had a boyfriend, or had sex. I also don't think I'll ever get married. To be fair, I believe this is all by choice.

I hate "what's up" too lol. So what exactly is the appropriate answer to "what's up"?
I also hate "smile!," "what's wrong," and "are you OK?" These phrases are insincere which is why they irritate me.

It's more than just cops KILLING blacks. It's subjecting them to investigations on the street, in front of a crowd, thereby embarrassing them. Lots of times, these "investigations" occur when they just get off work. Many times, these people being "investigated" are working for a...

That's like saying white Americans shouldn't talk about terrorism or ISIS since so many white Americans kill each other in high schools, elementary schools, colleges, movie theaters, biker shootouts, etc. Focus on white-on-white crime instead of terrorism!! !

I've seen several movies in theaters by myself. It was obvious to me that it was a weird thing to do because I had never seen a teen girl or young woman watch a movie alone. For me it wasn't not a downer at all. In fact for the longest time I didn't understand why it was more normal to see a movie w...

I feel like I have a bad sense of direction but good at reading maps. I rather read a map than have someone direct me to "go North" or something like that.
