We've all been there dude, being angry about being "made" this way. But we need to be proud of what we are. No, we're not the cookie cutter all American blond blue eyed stereotype of perfection. We don't have problems, just differences. LOTS of people are vulnerable to abuse. 1 in 4 women are in abu...

When SARS came out a few years back, my boss said to me "When you get to be my age (mid 40s), you realise that every few years the media like to have a big health scare. A few years ago it was AIDS, then Herpes, now it's SARS." Now I'm a little older myself, I see what she means. There was Bird Flu,...

Oh hell yes. They like me at first, but after a while they just lose contact and disappear.

I was never "low functioning" like you were, but yet I still completely identify with everything you said. Yep, eye contact is hard, need an Ipod, don't like to be touched, don't always understand...funny that at age 2 if we were put together, we would have seemed worlds apart. You couldn't talk and...

I almost got called out, a friend who works with special needs adults including autistic. She said I reminded her of one of them.

I'm 30 but people think I'm early 20s. I have a theory that we age at a different rate to normal people.

I know how you feel and I'm a girl! You are right, society makes it very hard to find a relationship, especially if you lack social skills. But the others are also right, if you have such a negative mentality that will also push girls away. There are girls who would like you, don't forget us Aspie g...

Absolutely. I had half a small latte at 11am, and couldn't sleep that night. But when I get novocaine at the dentist, it doesn't take effect right away and I end up feeling the whole thing, then my mouth is numb hours afterward.

I'm sorry but what does that graph prove? So the government assists other countries...how does that change the fact that the majority of Swedes are cold and unempathetic? The government does not necessarily reflect the culture and attitudes of the general people, look at George Bush, many Americans...

Oh, interesting topic! Sometimes other people will point out something that I didn't even realize. Like I was told by a few people a couple weeks ago that I bob my head a lot. I had no idea.

OMG I used to put one arm up in the air for no reason. My brother asked why was I doing that, I said "I can't be bothered putting it down." Wow, didn't realize others did it!

i'm proud to say i have never watched an ep of this show (in part or in total) and never will...... That is a really strange thing to be proud of. It's not a bad show. I've never seen House as an Aspie, just as a bitter man who has had a difficult life. Underneath that bitterness he has a heart of ...

As a Norwegian... I've met a lot of Scandinavians who aren't socially awkward. That's a huge generalization, IMO. Yeah, exactly. Maybe the OP should actually spend some time with Scandinavians before making any remarks. Generalizations generally DON'T mean every single person in a group. Like the g...

I was really into Jack the Ripper when I was 9 or 10. I also went through an Auschwitz phase.
