Districts didn't have autism units back then, and if you'd had a rough patch at school, your mom might've gotten a call with the principal telling her that they're not equipped to handle autistic kids, come pick you up, make some other arrangement for your education. And then your isolation would'v...

I agree with everything you've said, aspies are perfectly capable of achieving this kind of success if they push themselves to. I do not totally agree with you. First, like most Americans you're harping on the idea of things like positivity, pushing oneself to an obsession. Can all aspies truthfull...

This is a 10 minute video by a young Danish women talking about "acting" in a "neurotypical" world. I appreciated watching that, and saw myself in it too. It's frustrating that those who think I don't look Aspie enough – they're seeing my public face, and if they saw how I behave when I'm alone... ...

A person in my support group said it felt like a cure when he toked in the '70's. Yes he used the word cure. I have a obsessions so that means I have an addictive personality so I feel it's best for me to avoid.

Like most have said if I see nobody has responded I will try and answer it or just say something. When I see an ignored post I figure the person has probably has been ignored or misunderstood most of their life, so I figure being ignored here also has to be a real depressing feeling. Outside of the ...

Welcome to the WP. I almost fell off my chair when you were talking about confusion between the acting you and the real you and wanting to meet that person who is really yourself because I relate to that sentiment so closely and have used almost that exact same language in posts here. I also find th...

Oh boy, do I know what you mean. My late fiance was the only person I've ever known in whose presence I could be that way. Being around anyone else is exhausting after awhile, no matter how well I get along with them. But for both he (also an Aspie) and I, we could spend unlimited amounts of time t...

That very specific disclaimer(s) are needed for an ASD forum seems self evident. When a person registers a set of rules,guidelines, and disclaimers should be displayed. After reading it the candidate should be given these choices: they understand and accept the guidelines, They do not understand som...

That is up to the moderators. I would just avoid us and let us do our thing.

Max's belief in inherent differences between races is racist and so is your belief that all white people are racists. It is fine to go after a common mindset that stigmatizes people. The mindset to go after is fear of difference which is the root of most prejudice. That is what the pro gay marriage ...

My point is that 'highly empathic' is not 'normal', and can in fact cause extreme distress. It actually is very normal. Nobody is strange because they're so socially in tune that they understand people viscerally. It's the epitome of being good at socializing. Being shy and introverted may be diffi...

Dr. Tony Attwood said Aspies do not suffer from Aspergers they suffer from people. I do not think this is completely true but there is a large percentage of truth in that statement. My executive function and motor coordination issues would still be problematic without people. I was not bullied by ot...

Bumping this old thread up because it's a great one. The only difference with aspies is that NTs intuitively learn, very young, that anything a person says has to be deciphered because the meaning is not literal. I discovered this in my forties. ^This is one of the things that still leaves me wonde...

I do not drive so I tend to buy things online that are to small for delivery and to heavy or bulky to carry home. And you do get things a little cheaper sometimes.

don't fear, but avoid if possible. This statement sums it all up. It stood out to me, and really amused me. I actually think it would make a good slogan for an Aspie T-shirt. Now I want one! A " don't fear, but avoid if possible " T-shirt would be really funny. :lol: I like it. I find it helpful to...
