I always love reading stories about situations like this about people on the spectrum. That girl has a hell of a career ahead of her!

Recently got a job as an appointment setter at an insurance company and was informed (politely) by my NT partner that it would be wise to update my attire to appear more professional. Unfortunately (humorously playing on female stereotypes) I think my ovaries might have shriveled up and fallen out a...

Hey there!
I have been struggling with independence lately and I was wondering if anyone on her had read this book and if they found it beneficial or not? I am considering buying.

So I received some wonderful hearing aids for Christmas from my partner and I have found that they help significantly with understanding spoken language. I have a weird combination of some hearing loss and Auditory Processing Disorder. Does anyone else here use hearing aids or any other hearing devi...

I can relate to seeing "parts of the face" versus the whole facial expression and logicking it from there. I think really obvious ones like "happy" "sad" or "angry" are easier as you reach adulthood. However, I think you still struggle with the more nuanced on...

Haven't been on here for very long. It seems to pop up occasionally but I wouldn't say its epidemic.

I have been tempted to get a pin. I am fond of pins and would wear it next to my star trek one, I think it would be appropriate. However, I wonder if most of the time its worth telling anyone because unless they have had personal experience interacting with someone with ASD, I feel like I'm going to...

I can super relate to this. This the feeling I get usually before the anxiety hits. I have started to use it as some kind of a warning system when I need to begin to focus to stay calm. It feels like a weird kind of disassociation as if my brain is telling me "This is way to much, I'm out!"...

When it comes to gradually trying to get out of routines I think its a combination of a lot of willpower mixed with taking baby steps. Perhaps in your own time with no social demands adding extra anxiety, try changing the time you eat by an hour or half an hour earlier then usual. Make the conscious...

Hey Kiprobalhato, I am learning with my extroverted NT that when I have previously attempted to cushion what I say like I do with most people it leads to confusion or I come off as being wishy washy or dishonest. I am starting to understand that going for the way I naturally communicate actually wor...

Exceeding expectations would be what would occur if someone was to underestimate you, overestimation would lead to you failing to meet said expectations.

Being a person who tries to be hyper vigilant about being polite, I can understand how paranoid it can make you. Its also extremely tiring. I am not sure how to find a middle ground between being over aware of how your communicating and communicating in a way that comes naturally to us. I find mysel...

For the aspies dating NTs or the NTs dating aspies, what has your experience been and what ways have you found to efficiently communicate? I am currently dating a extroverted NT (not sure how that happened lol) and love my relationship, just curious as to other people experiences with those two worl...

I find the tediousness of paperwork and what not calming and a way to escape co workers when I need some alone time. Maybe other little policies that I might find redundant, but I enjoy rigid rules and routine so I guess it doesn't bother me as much.
