Typically for me, the consumption of alcohol enables the feeling of being more creative, and the ability to think deeper about things and the plans I want to undertake. Drinking lowers my inhibitions and makes more courses of action seem possible. It's not that I'm afraid to be creative or make plan...

If you find you often lose your balance, try shoes with a low rise (or no rise) in the heel, and a non-slip outer sole.

I'm Hyperlexic. I was reading by the time I was 3. I guess I taught myself, my mother says I used to surprise people by reading signs in the stores and reading package labels as a kid. That sounds a lot like me. One thing I remember doing was going into our medicine cabinet at home, pulling out all...

I was never diagnosed with hyperlexia, but I had all the signs of having it. I grew up in the 1970s, so autism wasn't on anyone's mind if they were trying to figure me out. Everyone just thought I was a really smart kid. I don't remember learning how to read, I just remember I could always do it rea...

I don't believe there's a connection or correlation between eye colour and autism.

I have green eyes. Or, to be more precise, the level of melanin in my irises scatters light in such a way that my irises appear predominantly green :mrgreen:

I noticed that as time passed following my diagnosis in 2016, my desire to disclose my ASD changed. At first, I wanted to tell almost everyone, but I didn't. I only told my wife and my sister. As time passed, I realized that not telling lots of people about my diagnosis was wise, as I came to believ...

"Active but odd" describes me as a child up until the age of 5, when my will was repeatedly broken during my year of Kindergarten by all the other kids in my class. :( I slowly learned that behaving and thinking different than the other kids in a small town's public elementary school was a...

How did everybody's pride get so delicate that they can't stand to hear information that would show them where there's room for improvement? Thank you for saying that. I recall first thinking this (or something close to this) when I was 5 years old, and it's been something I've always remembered. I...

I hate socks. I cannot stand the feeling of wearing socks without shoes over them. If I am to wear socks, it is because I will immediately be putting my shoes on over them. And whenever the shoes come off, the socks come off too. the friend I mentioned above would put on socks the second he got out ...

You want things to be better, and you want bad people like trolls to go away. You're a person with a good heart with a desire to see things better for you and for others. You're one of the good people out there, not one of the bad ones. Don't hate yourself or let hate or bad thoughts occupy your min...

French and French Canadians dating back as long as 1580. Similar here. I can't trace mine before 1600, but I found relatives in Lower Normandy, France from 1610. Sometime during the 1640s, they settled just north of Quebec City along the St. Lawrence River bank. It was pretty cool to learn there we...

Abstract Background: Although autistic adults often discuss experiencing “autistic burnout” and attribute serious negative outcomes to it, the concept is almost completely absent from the academic and clinical literature. Methods: We used a community-based participatory research approach to conduct...

I'm bringing up this old thread since I just got bit by the geneology bug 4 days ago. Have probably spent 30 to 40 hours on a geneology website during that time. I agree with those who have said, "geneology is a very Aspie-friendly activity." On Saturday, my wife asked me a question about ...

Hello... I am wondering if anyone has similar experiences. I have epilepsy with all types of seizures, including profound sensory seizures, aphasic seizures, petit mal, etc. I wrote this on facebook and I want to ask here, as well. Even if you don't have epilepsy, do you experience this? Does anyon...

I recall this really bothering me in elementary school when in the lunchroom. Almost all of the kids in Grades 1 through 5 would be in the same large room at the same time. Having between 150 to 200 kids chattering away in high-pitched kid voices caused a mini-meltdown in my mind almost every day in...
