My mom is not pregnant currently, but a little while ago she had my little sister. I had wanted another sibling for a long time, so I was very excited and apprehensive for her to be born. We read things online together, and discussed what precautions we would have to take as she got older to keep he...

51. I like to be very organized in day-to-day life and often makes lists of the chores I have to do. What answer would be more typical for people with ASD? Agree or disagree? Is it associated with repetitive behaviors and rigid thinking? A think a typical person with ASD craves organisation, but of...

It's supposed to be someone with a personality disorder who display persistent antisocial (not asocial) behavior, impaired empathy, remorse, and highly egotistic traits. Doctors normally call it psychopathy, but many people use sociopath quite broadly and inaccurately. Because people with spectrum ...

Someone with no moral code. People with Antisocial Personality Disorder (basically the diagnostic equivalent of what is referred to as a sociopath/psychopath) aren’t necessarily aggressive in nature, but because it is hypothesized that the sympathetic nervous system (the system responsible for “figh...

I saw this one a few days ago as well. It is really enlightening to learn about the disorder from her perspective, instead of what it is made out to be in popular culture. It also shows the devastating effects that early childhood trauma can have on that child’s entire life. I am very glad that she ...

It is usually around the time I go to bed, yes, so that might very well be an explanation. Sometimes it's making it hard to sleep, because earplugs doesn't really do much when it comes to your own head, lol. Thank you for your reply! No problem! I have read that anxiety and stress can make it worse...

Is this typically around the time you go to sleep or are about to fall asleep? If so, it is probably hypnagogia, which is fairly common and not really indicative of anything other than your mind preparing to enter a dream state. Have you ever heard that our dreams are fragments of our day that our b...

I watched a video of a middle school health teacher once and the reason that they said people who haven’t been in a relationship, are virgins, etc. are humiliated and looked down upon is merely a result of normies being jealous. They have already lost that part of them, and they envy the people with...

I have the EXACT opposite. I HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE walking barefoot. I ALWAYS wear socks inside and shoes outside. I hate wearing flip flops too. Sandals are OK. I also curl my toes a lot so maybe thats why. It’s the same for me. I never take my socks off, and I prefer to have on shoes as we...

Can you hear these voices like you would hear people talking? If not, it is pretty typical to have two, three, or even 10 inner voices. Our inner voice is just “voicing” our thoughts, if you will, and it isn’t a separate person/personality, despite the fact that two or more inner voices often confli...

I have never been one to act up in public, but if I had, it would not be tolerated, and I would probably be punished. When I was 3-4 I was obsessed with books, and I got them all taken away as a punishment. That wasn’t nice at all 8O . I don’t think it is entirely your problem that you acted up in p...

I have done some research on Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome before. For some reason, it is commonly commorbid (more than the general population at least) in people with autism, the hypothesis being that a specific gene mutation/deletion in a certain area may be responsible for both syndromes. Did they speci...

Your disorder/disability doesn’t prevent you from being successful and happy. Ignore the functioning level given to you, and just strive to be the best person you can during your time here. Put yourself outside of your comfort zone sometimes, but be sure to always take care of yourself. Find out wha...
