I used to be the same way. I was clueless about pop culture and it wasn't until I was 16-18 years old I started to pick up the odd issue of People or Us Weekly to find out what celebrities people were talking about. I also started listening more closely to the top 40 radio songs on the radio. Now wi...

I have been in a similar situation as you before. I had my parents read stories about adults with ASD called Knowing Why: Adult-Diagnosed Autistic people on Life and Autism. The stories all provide insight on why the writers' sought Autism diagnosis and their experience. My father read it first and ...

I am definitely an introvert, but I don't think all aspies are introverts. It seems to me its a generalization or stereotype.

I don't entirely fit-in with my extended family and it took a while for my immediate family to really understand the reality I face with Autism and ADHD. The extended family I do fit-in with are usually those who are generally more accepting of others and are more open to conversing with me. At a lo...

I don't think buying the same shoes over again is weird at all. For the past few years I've mainly been sticking to Nike Air Max sneakers. They are so comfortable, I have oddly small and narrow feet and these are perfect.

I can definitely relate. It's hard to find decent sensory-friendly clothing, but I find each time I go shopping I get a little better at knowing where to look. I dress pretty comfortable and plain, I tried being trendy for a few years but since I didn't find clothes comfortable I couldn't stick to i...

Since March I have been exercising more frequently and I'm getting bored of the same old stretches and cardio. I was thinking of buying a trampoline or something similar to add more variety to my daily exercise regime. Does anybody have any brands or equipment they would like to recommend?

I have been told I looked vulnerable by others and I have been approached by people who seem to see as someone who needs to be protected, comforted, or just too creepy and should be left alone. It took me years to figure out why people see me in these ways and I realized it's because of all of the s...

I experience this for sure, but I began to take notice of it in the past 7 years or so. Going out, even if it is just for a few hours can leave me drained the following day. I especially don't really enjoy going out in the middle of the week or returning to work on Monday when I have been out all we...

I don't think you're missing out on life if you don't party. It was never really my thing, but I did going to particles a couple of times in my early twenties. I didn't really enjoy it and I felt really out of place. I also don't get drunk as alcohol relaxes me and makes me less social. I think it a...

I get compared to fictitious characters all the time. Usually nerdy male ones like Sheldon Cooper or Brick from the Middle.

I was okay with it as my elementary school experience was terrible and I wanted to take high school as an opportunity to find myself. I was in a group with 3 close friends and we got along all throughout high school. During this time I felt like I had more freedom to be myself and I really didn't ca...

I go through phases of organization depending on what I am working on. Papers and office supplies which are currently in use and will be used for a long period of time will sit in piles. Usually these piles are by subject or stages. Everything else is organized. I have a lot of notebooks, file folde...

I think I know what you are talking about when referring to these odd conversations. I used to steer conversations towards myself A LOT, especially when I was teenager. I had a hard time paying attention to conversations and fully understanding what people are saying. I would try and use examples fr...
