Yes, from bullying and an abusive relationship. My triggers are people yelling or being assaulted, can't watch fight scenes in movies

You can't definitively say how much muscle mass someone has without some form of biometric testing but if we're going off strength alone then I would say mine is low. I wouldn't call myself petite, I have a medium build but I am quite slim at the moment

I used to do it but I grew out of it I think? Not sure if it was a result of my meltdowns or a form of self harm

I was diagnosed when I was 12 but not told until I was nearly 14. My mum was worried that I'd start telling people about it. She still doesn't like that I tell people about my diagnosis, her reasoning being that people won't understand. I don't know how they are supposed to understand if no-one is w...

Well I don't know about the US but here in Australia my partner has AS and is a programmer and has been for 15+ years. He's mostly self taught, to get a job as a programmer it's all about the portfolio so practice practice practice and code as many things as you can if you're interested. Start inves...

Yeah I love make up, it's an essential part of my morning routine. I like all kinds - from drugstore to high end. My favourite brand is probably too faced but I always stock up during drugstore sales. My biggest pet peeve however would have to be winged eye liner and false lashes. I love the look of...

Well, I was diagnosed when I was 12. I can't remember when I told my current SO but he cared so little that he forgot and was surprised when I told him again when he was diagnosed last year. It's hard to say how both of us having AS affects our relationship, we definately have our own communication ...

I've been diagnosed with both. It took me awhile to get my BPD diagnosis because the psychiatrist I was seeing at the time thought my 'acting out' and emotional disregulation could be explained away by AS. I kept pushing him though because I know plenty of people on the spectrum and they weren't stu...

Are we talking just a memory or a legit voice in your ear?

If it's the latter, please see a doctor. That's no good for your brain

I think it's important to remember that autism, especially in its milder forms has been much more frequently diagnosed in the last 20 years or so. It will be interesting to see if these results can be replicated once the current generation starts aging and dying off. Meh, I'm not old enough to fuss ...

I disclose every now and then if the topic comes up. Generally the reaction I get is something like 'I knew something was off about you' gee thanks. My extended family don't know because mum doesn't want me to disclose. She thinks they wouldn't understand. She also thinks I shouldn't tell anyone but...

Bra shopping is such a hassle because of my odd shaped body - narrow shoulders, wide rib cage - I buy them to fit my ribs and the straps fall down all the time. Also losing a lot of weight recently has lead to major boob shrinkage - I've gone from an F cup to a C cup. I had to buy all new bras along...

I say Aspergers. That's the terminology that my doctors have always used and continue to use. Most people seem to be familiar enough with the term as well

I can so relate, I love buying clothes and trying to put outfits together but I've never managed to get the hang of this style thing - I tried just wearing whatever the hell I wanted but my mum staged an intervention and told me I look like a 13 year old with no clue. Rude! Although now that I'm app...

So most people with Aspergers that I know are either unemployed or working jobs that are...unsuited to their level of intelligence, shall we say. I don't know, the picture is complex for those of us on the spectrum. You might be highly skilled and intelligent but you have to sell yourself in a CV, p...
