I accepted myself as an isolated alien freak by the second grade. Never heard the word autism till I was 20, or the word Asperger till I was 40. I never had the luxury of even knowing there were a few others like me in the world. I thought it was just me being a habitual loser and screwup, because t...

I live in a culture that thinks evolution is "BS" while Trump is God's voice on Earth. Whatever you may think of President Trump, Evolution IS BS. I know a lot of supposedly smart people still believe it's "settled science," but the truth is, even by Darwin's own standards of pr...

I think I'm a very empathetic person. I feel like it's almost a moral obligation to try and see the world from the other person's eyes. I do this often and I sympathize deeply about the misfortunes of those around me. Common misunderstanding, it really is maddening sometimes how easily people are m...

The fact that Aspergians are naturally naive, and notoriously bad at accurately reading and recognizing social cues means we naturally attract people who seek to manipulate and use others - we're such soft targets.

I don't know, I feel quite relaxed in his company, because he never says he's certain about his ideas, and he always asks for my feedback. That's a technique he's been taught , to draw patients out and get them talking, without upsetting them. He's blowing smoke up your @$$. While he never tells YO...

is this disability discrimination? Absolutely. I can't imagine it being any more condescending. They might as well have just called you "The Token Retard." If so is there anything I can do about it. I have zero knowledge of legalities in the UK, but if it's anything like what I've encount...

I read a couple articles about this - they didn't just taunt the kid, they beat him up, dropping him with leg sweeps and stuff like that. He's diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant disorder (as am I), so he may be difficult and argumentative and even seem downright bratty, but they had him crying unde...

It's been a long time since I was exposed to laughing gas (nitrous oxide), but I had a lot of dental surgery as a kid and that's what they used commonly back then. It's just what the name says, they put the plastic mask over your mouth and nose, and you breathe it in, it has no smell or taste as I r...

Just because God can see into the future, doesn't mean we still don't have a CHOICE, in what we do!! It's not like His seeing into the future, DIRECTS our choice----if, for no other reason, than because we don't know what He sees. To ME, it's similar to when a human, who knows us really well, can p...

I looked around myself at the age of 10 and realized I was too old for Trick-or-Treating. In fact, the idea of doing it suddenly seemed kind of childish and embarrassing. I still love all the Halloween and horror accoutrements and nomenclature (toys and decorations), but even back then (in the 1970s...
