Another engineer. Academic stuff has always come easily for me so I managed a 3.95 GPA.

Why is it that virtually every time I hear people talking about the things they find attractive in potential mates they break personality down to smart, dumb and crazy as if they are the only three traits? I seriously see this everywhere. What about apathy, kindness, patience, selfishness, assertive...

If you realized that the girl was falling in love with you and you led her on because you enjoyed her interest in you without actually loving her then you are an as*hole. People do this intentionally all the time and it is a shitty thing to do to someone. If you were oblivious to it and her telling ...

Yeah Illinois is horrible, especially if you live in the southern tip of the state 250 miles outside of the Chicago money zone. I don't know if I mentioned it before but I work for the state, and I'm under pretty constant threat of losing my job due to budget cuts these days. I could likely transfe...

I didn't go to college because when my parents ran away from home I became homeless. I stayed homeless for a while because after that first rape I was in near permanent meltdown, getting stabbed solidified my low-functioning state, and PTSD doesn't combine well with Aspergers. My scholarships were ...

Youtube has a huge repository of combat footage and watching it makes me wish I could be over there. The funny thing is I would be more concerned about living in a barracks than being shot at. Other aspects of military life are probably pretty amenable to AS since it is so regimented in every way.. ...

How do lentils work? What is it about them that helps? I just have to tell people. I say please don't breath on me. That is my biggest thing, when people breath on me. I can't tolerate that at all. There are people who repulse me when they touch me as well, I can't tolerate their skin. I just try n...

I'm always a little horrified when I hear people talk about the importance of networking in getting a job. I guess if I wanted to make an issue out of NT privilege I would go at it from the angle of attacking nepotism and bad HR practice. I really don't understand why rationally self-interested busi...

Have you tried eating lentils?

If that doesn't work you could always just invest conscious effort into not being so jumpy.

So if you're still with me after that wall of text, here's my question. Is it okay to explain to others that I am somewhere on the autism spectrum without an official diagnosis? Is that gauche or inappropriate? Is it insensitive to people who do have a diagnosis? Is it dishonest? For the past year ...

I didn't say up is down or black is white or anything comparable. I pointed out there are more reasons than ego to disagree with the OP. I did not state that ego protection has nothing to do with anything in this thread. I suggested other possibilities, because I think that projecting a single poss...

Indeed, right now you look at yourself (and that counts for me as well) with the suspicion that a lot of things you remember from your past are related to autism, because you have an answer for it. Basically you have an answer and work backwards to find questions that confirm the answer, rather tha...

People in this very thread seem to be fairly indignant over having their diagnose questioned by the OP. Why the vitriol? Because it's important to them. Perhaps because people have denied their difficulties in the past and it's a sore point for them. Perhaps because the OP comes across as self-righ...
