SpaceMartian , If you can find and get any professional certifications (for computer-related stuff that interests you) it might improve the pay prospects. (As does experience on noted on a resume.) P.S. A degree in something like Computer Science or IT also looks good. By the end of this month I'm ...

Time for a little update, so far, no more pacing and wasted time, even if my mind still likes to give me the impulse to do so. Still daydream a little but only on oblivious moments like while getting dressed, showering or going somewhere, which is fine, I don't get bored that way. I really needed to...

Went to college but crashed and burned. I was a programmer and a bit of electronic tech for a Formula Student team. Before during and after college, been a computer tech. Tired of it, I like computers, but repetitive task, low pay and dealing with people... Specially that last part is what gets me. ...

Uni is a scam. You pay a fortune, get in debt for years in exchange for incompetent teachers, no real world experience, nothing guaranteed, and get treated like a trash bag. I left for that very same reason. Today you can learn anything on the internet. But first things first, college or not, you ne...

Eing? I don't know... I've always went for what seemed appropriate for whatever I'm writing. Never noticed something weird on other people's end. I do know something, if THEY start to get annoying with it, then him, her, he, she will instantly, and without a chance to revert, convert to IT or maybe ...

That depends on how your manager and company is like. It could be a bad idea and change stuff for the worse, could have no effect or it could make things better for you. Now, from my perspective, if you are having a hard time coping and you don't see yourself or want to stay there for a long time, o...

Here is normal to give girls two kisses in the chick and guys a handshake. I hated back when I was younger and had no other option. Today I just won't do it. The handshake is not ok but doable. The kissing is NOT, specially now that I haven't done it for years. Kissing as of kissing, romantically or...

Educating him may be impossible altogether, in any case, maybe a therapist (in person, not over the phone) could make him understand. But again, it could make things worse. I don't know your personal situation, but I'd rather let the topic alone if he's not of much help to you anyway. Maybe better ...

Have your dad and aunt ever read the DSM so they can see how autism is defined? That might be a good way for them to focus on the reality, instead of stereotypes or media portrayals. Have you or your family ever watched Parenthood ? It has a really good storyline about a family having their son ass...

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 sti...

I don't know about this one... I never talk about it to my family, nor I talk of any concern I may have at all. Been in therapy since I was like 8 or something, yet nobody told me anything about my ASD up until age 15 or so when a substitute for my regular therapist (who was ill or something) told m...

In my experience freelancing was alright. The clients were kinda technical people and because they were paying VERY low wages they were hands-off and appreciative when I delivered what they wanted.


Still won't try unless I absolutely have to.

In some other places I'm known as a space cadet. I zone out even during conversations. That's next level. If there's people close I usually won't daydream, let alone during a conversation. I'm afraid other than get the idea in my brain of "this has to stop" and pure willpower, I have no i...

If I find I daydream too much, I just put on the TV----or I go on WrongPlanet----or I watch a YouTube video. It's not necessarily something to be "ashamed" of---like autism is nothing to be ashamed of. You're not "less of a person" for having autism; you're not "less of a p...

As long as it doesn't interfere with me making a living, I find that little eccentricities add spice to life. "Maladaptive Daydreaming," I would purport, could well be behind much original literature---especially of the "stream of consciousness" type. I'm fortunate that I have a...

I do "maladaptive daydreaming," too.

I also fall asleep at inopportune times at my library job :)


I understand too. Have you ever tried to grow out of it or do you rather like it? If it isn't asking too much.
