Yes. It occurred from a brain injury when I was around 3 years old. Normally the left side of the brain is dominant and the right side of the brain lives in our REM and NREM sleep state. But because my left side was damaged and died at around 3, the two sides of my brain switched places so that my b...

I dont have any of these symptoms though. Someone else posted and said that brains of dead aspies were examined and found to be child-like in structure. Many of the symptoms that you wrote describe what I experienced immediately after my stroke. I lost my ability to read (bur I retained my ability ...

People tend to think like a herd of animals. One animal goes off in one direction and they all join the group. Aspies are a different type of people. One of our skills (if we develop it possible) is to make decisions on our own. We spend more time analyzing information and this can make our decision...

Many people are very different than Aspies. Rather than look at someone speaking honestly, they feel they can lie, tell half truths and many things in between. Sometimes it is done because they feel you do not have a need to know. Generally I would say that if she is going through hard times at the ...

About 50 years ago, I was working in a warehouse and one of the people I met was in a game show. It had 3 men and one woman. She asked questions and then picked one of them for a date. He was a nice guy but had one defect. He was blind in one eye. After several rounds of running through preliminary ...

One of the problems many Aspies have is that they avoid EYE TO EYE CONTACT. I do not know why I do this but I do. As a result most NTs automatically consider that I am false, Keep away from him, He is evil. This is an automatic judgement on their part. But this is true. I do not make eye to eye cont...

Driving can be difficult but there are some steps that can help. To begin with, I have driven most of my life. I probably have driven over 1 million miles thus far. I am a fairly safe driver. That was not the case when I first started out. When I was young one time I received a speeding ticket. Rath...

I woke up this morning and was thinking about the construct of the human brain. (At least my sleep side of my brain was hard at work on the subject.) The main point is how human brains work. In general, most NTs operate on a parallel structure. But I tend to operate on a serial structure. In order t...

Stephanie Soukar and Ariel Cascio. Welcome to the site and as far as I am concerned, this is an open online site and free to both Aspies and non-Aspies alike. In my personal opinion, Asperger's Syndrome is a unique personality type and lumping it together with other groups will lose the ability to u...

When you go to sleep, your body will enter many different sleep states. These include REM and NREM sleep. Your heart will begin to race and beat faster. If you wake during these sleep states, the cause may be because your mind is in turmoil. In other words the stress is just too much and your body c...

There are hearing aids that can do that? I've never considered hearing aids since I don't have an actual hearing problem per se, but if there is something that can low background noise or background voices and make it easier to hear someone speaking directly to me I would love that. I am old. I am ...

This focus on your thought processes when you see a doctor or nurse is a part of training they receive to assess problems. It is not specifically a degrading attack upon you personally. Doctors and nurses treat a wide variety of people with a full range of problems and they have to make important de...
