What does everybody on here think of traveling and/or going on vacation. I for the most part hate it. The unfamiliarity makes me really uncomfortable. My favorite place is at home. I know this is very common for people with Asperger's and Autism, so I know why I am that way. Even my therapist told m...

I'm 6 foot 3, and weigh about 170 pounds. Lost over 40 pounds this past year. Trying to lose more. My BMI is around 20-23, so in the normal range. I'd say I am pretty normal personally.

Cage, maybe? Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if Eminem did as well. It might also explain why the Cage vs. Marshall Mathers beef resembled a feud on here. :lol: Are you an Eminem fan. I am a huge Stan. Have all of his albums on CD. I've did the research as well, thinking maybe he has Asperger's. ...

Also, can I ask you a question. How did you put the things like your "Aspie Score" (if that is the correct thing to say) on the bottom of your posts or profile or wherever? You go into "My Account" and then you add things like that if you wish to the signature area. You can prev...

As the r-word is now considered far too derogatory to be used nowadays by teens my age, some have decided to find a substitute. They were probably like, "Hey! We need to find a substitute for r—ed! Let's use autistic!" Spot on - language scientists call this the "euphemism treadmill&...

Sometimes it can be really frustrating. But I feel once I go to college and then get a career, I can be really successful. If my job is something I have an "obsession" in, I feel the sky is the limit and I could do really well. But there are hard parts of having an ASD. So it's a mixed bag...

"Retarded" bothers me because it was ubiquitous when I was growing up and I had a cousin who was one of my favorite people on the planet who was severely mentally disabled and I didn't like when people would refer to him that way. I hate the term, actually and will always refer to it in q...

CockneyRebel, that sounds awful. I'm sorry that happened to you. I am pretty good at passing, so the types of problematic conversations that I frequently encounter are where an NT says something to me about how some rude guy at work / the gym / the street "must have Aspergers or something.&quo...
