I also have worst issues around November to January, but that's summer here.
It may be the combination of christmas and all the expectations which go along with that, and the heat and humidity we get here.

Oh this is heartbreaking, I feel for you. Now there are two possibilities with what's going on with your wife, either she's an as*hole or an aspie. I'm going to assume you're correct and she's an aspie and respond accordingly. I would say she wants to sleep with other people Not necessarily. Speakin...

Good news!
The missing woman has been found by her family - she was riding the trains.
(Still in the same clothes and a lot thinner - they took her back to hospital for a check-up.)

I don't think I have the ability to hyperfocus then. I've never been too hyperfocused to remember to eat, sleep or go to the toilet. Even when writing my stories, which I love doing, I can't focus for long periods of time, as I lose focus when I get writer's block. Also I can't sit still for long p...

It makes sense to me. Monotropism could explain all kinds of issues I have - not just hyperfocus but also the inability to attend to two things at once such as talking and driving, and the way I get stuck in one thought pattern (rumination). My brain has heavy steering, it only wants to go in one di...

I do wonder if not knowing was a good thing in some ways, because it forced me to learn a lot of compensatory strategies to be able to fit into society. These have served me well. I was also less aware and hence less self-conscious about my AS traits, which was nice in an "ignorance is bliss&qu...

I was really slow to realise. Even after I had to take 6 months off work due to burn-out... and even after I was having trouble with parenting and had come to the realisation that there was some hard-wired problem in my brain, I still didn't get the picture. I just had a complete misconception of wh...

My first one hurt bad - but mainly because I didn't really understand the process and was afraid. Fear ramps up pain a lot. When the second one came around I understood better that the pain was contractions to help open up the birth canal and that the pain came in waves so you just have to (try to) ...

Oh yeah.
If I'm under stress I get meltdowns - and then I get depressed and then I get anxious and then all it takes is a little stress and BAM! meltdown all over again.

If the report contains no statement recognising the gender difference in diagnosis age, and the likelihood of missing out significant numbers of girls, and if it then draws conclusions about autism gender ratios, I would consider that a very serious flaw. Even if all it is reporting is the gender ra...

I see what you mean.
Similarly, I wonder if fear and embarrassment in case people saw their flakey skin was counted as an autistic social symptom?

A pie chart is an interesting idea.
It would be unable to capture how our traits can seem to change over time or due to circumstances.
But it definitely seems an advance on just labelling us all as autistic and having one-size-fits-all therapies.

Sportspeople use HRV to check for overtraining or illness. They monitor is every day and if it starts to drop that means they need to ease up on the training as their body is stressed, or is fighting off an infection. So my idea is to see if I can use it to monitor my internal stress and anxiety and...

Ah no, it's the other way around. When the HRV is too low, that means our heartbeat is too regular, and that actually means our nervous system is out of balance. In a healthy nervous system, the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are always pulling against each other, which leads to tiny variat...
