I have like 12 but they really only fit into 2 categories. For example (these aren't my interests, just fake alias ones) I like many areas of math, but they all fit into math. Additionally, I like applying that math to physics, but then it only involves one area of physics. That's 11 interests invol...

I'm very good, just don't have the patience at all. I pick up languages fast. On the other hand, I seem to crash and burn when I'm rushed at any speed other than my own when it comes to math. I never spend the time on languages that I want to so whenever I do it I end up losing all the stuff I learn...

I'm as utterly disgusted as everyone else. But instead of blaming the country, education system, or anything else, maybe it was truly just the nastiness of those kids. Maybe truly evil people bundle together for security. Sociopaths aren't typically demonstrative of fear, but inside they experience ...

I can relate so much to these posts. My body is suffering from so much inactivity lol But essentially, the difference is as others have said: Inability to stop something because fear of something else for OCD VS A total absorbing joy of a specific area. I don't know why that specific area, I can't c...

Gosh! I have gotten into recent discussions here with folks about the difference between aspie obsessions, and OCD obsessions. I have had both kinds, and I feel I know the difference. To me they are quite different animals. Aspie obsession are kinda like drug addiction. They take you over because y...

It's been three days now. I feel like I don't really have any control anyways but this has just gotten out of hand. I uncover information, make an analysis, try desperately to discuss it with anyone, think about it for like 20 minutes, then continue. Constantly. I'm totally obsessed, and my family i...

So did I. A lot of math is actually based around communication ability. It's a very dense subject, and in order to truly understand what we're doing, we need to be able to communicate properly with a teacher. However, the reason why a lot of OTHER people with AS are good at math is because we're sel...

If they give us a list of rules we can follow them. If we break a few rules they can excuse us. But if someone with AS OR a Neurotypical murders 40 people, they deserve the punishment just like anyone else, even if that's not explicitly stated as socially unacceptable. Most of us have basic empathet...

You could be an Aspie if you enjoy categorizing, collecting, ordering, and memorizing random bits of related or sometimes unrelated facts like colors, cars, and countries. (That C part was a mistake). Or, in my case, getting mad at things that seem illogical, like phantom door hitting me in the face...

Now that I read my hysterical post I kind of realize how badly I worded that, I could have done it so much better. I will definitely check on that. I've been feeling weak and lost a lot of the time, as in depersonalized and sort of lost in a dream-like state. Do seizures affect any of that, like giv...

I personally want less representation. I don't stand for everyone but I hate people knowing about me and the more symptoms they can recognize the more they'll know about my personal info. I like to pretend I'm neurotypical as long as possible until someone shouts out my secrets somewhere lol.

Time to sound stupid but... I did a DNA test and found out that I was wrong, and that my ancestry is not actually native to the region but somewhere completely different, much further north along what is now the Black sea. BUT I still have an identical appearance to my fellow "ethnic peoples&qu...

Sudden appetite change aside.... I've always had trouble with digestion. I have a constant nausea and a lot of fatigue throughout the day. Chronic diarrhea and gas, constipation, and just horrible process in general. Inefficient and generally terrible. I have this with most foods, cheeses, breads, c...

Two things Thin or thick doesn't matter I think. Some people leave after they get no reaction from a thick skinned person, others keep going because they see it as a challenge. If someone who they're attacking is well mannered and calm as a person they will not react, but instead take the abuse unti...
