Just yesterday I was reading about Asperger's and Depression (google). I live in the moment so much that I'm really happy when I'm happy and really upset when I am upset. I read that Aspie's can be more susceptible to continued depression b/c we are focused and may ruminate (upset, that I am upset b...

Two examples: Both resulting in Bachelor degrees * Recent - Neighbor disclosed her ASD and has accommodations (e.g. light schedule). I fully expect her to graduate well --- this sounds like a relatively enjoyable experience. * Past - I did not know about my ASD, so did the drop out, postponing assig...

What broke the ice for me was personal loss. As a teenager, I needed support so had to relate. As an adult, I joined support groups. Of course I don't recommend going out and getting a loss, so perhaps a more mundane shared activity - one that puts an Aspie in touch with a lot of people (in small gr...

I wondering that all my friends have Aspie traits, or that the NT ones are married to ND folks, so my ways are "familiar" to them.

Would you mind sharing other techniques that have worked in your relationship? MrsWiggles, I wrote a long response but it apparently got lost in the cloud. I'll go for an abbreviated response. I hope your letter was well enough received (even if you can't tell directly). My husband and I aspire to ...

Thanks again, everyone. My husband thinks I'm misdiagnosed because at times I can accomplish a great deal, but then he wonders why I tend to sleep a lot. It's from masking for 50+ years. He's very intelligent in a lot of respects, but he thinks I have 'latched onto' the results of a Neurocognitive ...

Yes. Relative to myself: traits in mother, sister, niece, child, aunt, cousin ---- grandparent and cousin with schizophrenia.

My takeaway is to continue to encourage my children, and that I have fluidity of intelligence but a vortex in my self-esteem.

Even if I'm not on the spectrum some of the things that kind of offended me on behalf of autistic people were notions she shared that I have too much imagination to be autistic and, even more shockingly, she narrowed in on something my mother told her about me being in my earl 20s helping my older ...

You didn't mention trying a band to flatten them, hold them firmly against the body (if physically possible based on cup size). I don't recall being as uncomfortable with my breasts as you write, but I wasn't pleased with them. Now approaching my 50s, I kind of like them. I am glad you are seeking a...

I am Aspie woman with NT man. We consider each other equals (albeit very different) --- sounds like you have similar view of your relationship. My marriage has been VERY hard, but likewise it's been Rewarding. What saved us were mandatory weekly 20-min talks, first stating two things we appreciate a...

You can do it! (Friendly teasing: It may take 20 years like it has for me, but you can do it!)

No tips here, just that it's possible. I'm self-diagnosed Aspie woman with an NT man who liked that I was different (teasing: he's an immigrant and didn't know better). I devour self-help books and classes and support groups (when I'm not kicked out); I'm Aspie and loyal while he's Capricorn and loy...

My self harm peaked in my 20s (cutting, head banging - the latter I didn't remember until I read your post) and has lessened since then. A doctor pissed me off (purposely!) and proved that if I can place my anger outside myself I will not hurt myself (he dared me). My problem for me is when folks (m...
