I usually just don't look at them in the face at all. If I need to, I look at their mouth or nose.

Sometimes my stare will start drifting, and the next thing I know, I'll be staring at their shirt or their pants.

When I was younger, I asked him if he's had any autistic students, and he said yes. So he must have some idea of what autism is. That was before I was diagnosed, and I was having an obsession with the topic of autism. Another thing is that he used to have a dyslexic student that he always called &qu...

To lose weight, just step on pinto beans for half an hour every day.

DSM 5 criteria

Individuals with a well-established DSM-IV diagnosis of autistic disorder, Asperger’s disorder, or pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified should be given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.


Okay. That makes sense.

I read an article from a long time ago that theoretically speaking, 45% with DSM IV autism would not meet the DSM 5 criteria, 75% with DSM IV Asperger's would not meet it, and 80% with DSM IV PDD-NOS would not meet it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/allen-frances/dsm-5-will-lower-autism-r_b_1240016.h...

When I was little, I saw a cartoon where someone's face got sucked into a vacuum cleaner. Now I try to avoid those things.

Also, my parents constantly yelling at me to fix things that are beyond my control.

Every week, I go to this person to take piano lessons. Every week, he asks me why I always look around the room when he's talking, why I take so long to answer his questions, why I can't stop moving in my seat, why I must always take his jokes so seriously, etc. He's known me since I was little. He ...

There was a girl in my class that might've been on the border of Asperger and Kanner types, but I don't take that class anymore. Her voice sounded a bit different than the others in our class, and one day I realised it was because her intonation was the exact same as mine. She copes better than me w...

Once one of my classmates dressed up as Sarcasm for Halloween. She just wore a shirt that said "scary". To this day, my best guess is that since she was a little kid, nobody would think she's scary. Or maybe it's because Halloween doesn't scare her. But it took me a year of thinking about ...

My dreams are so weird that I don't think my autism would make a difference in what happens. It's hard to tell if I'm autistic in my dreams because they are just so weird. :shrug:
