I always feel like this, I've often thought perhaps I'm schizophrenic.

I don't know what causes it or how to stop it, but I think it's linked to my anxiety. It's scary when people seem to respond, and I worry that they hear things I don't want them to. You're not alone :)

For me, cheating is anything that engages romantic and sexual feelings regularly, outside of your relationship. Most of the things you mentioned aren't cheating for me personally, but flirtatious banter would cross the line for me a bit. Being alone with another woman isn't cheating for me, either,...

I'm not sure if this has to do with my diagnosis of asperger's, but I've noticed recently so many people seem to be okay and very lenient with cheating ... Can anyone help me out so my anxiety about it lessens?  Thank you! Well, it might help if you can express your standards for "cheating&quo...

I'm not sure if this has to do with my diagnosis of asperger's, but I've noticed recently so many people seem to be okay and very lenient with cheating. This worries me because I'm for sure not very secure in myself, and have had this deep-rooted fear that my partner will inevitably leave me for som...

It felt like someone was writing something that has been in my head for me! I am exactly like this, and it is so painful, because the OCD makes you believe it is true. For example, I had an obsession about something I said about a professor. I said he was irritating, but I FELT so bad and imagined a...

Hi everyone! Just thought I'd post to let you know that I've been officially diagnosed with Asperger's/High functioning autism! :) We managed to speed the process up as my lack of social skills was affecting my friendships at university, so I had the assessment booked earlier and I got the diagnosis...

Hi funeralxempire, don't worry I didn't make the comment, my friend did! I was the one who responded to the joke. I was wondering if asking whether there are differences between American people and English people is suggesting I believed in the stereotypes, when I didn't!!

I was with my friends and one of them is American. She is from Colorado, and has quite a dry, witty sense of humour. She made a comment, I think as a joke, about how "all Americans are fat and practical" but obviously she was playing into the stereotype and mocking it. I laughed and said, ...

Hi, I'm 19 year old female studying at university in the UK and am in my second year. I have an assessment for suspected Asperger's syndrome in February, but it's looking pretty likely I have it. In my first year, I met this guy in my accommodation block, and he happened to have Asperger's too. We m...

I've felt the exact same. I'm quite young (almost 20) so I guess I haven't had an intense full time job to burn me out, but when you're an Aspie (or with significant Aspie traits) the little things like feeling misunderstood in a social context and noise can really take a toll. There was a whole yea...

Hello. I understand you are not sure as to whether you have ASD or not, and that your present psychologist / therapist has the opinion that you do not. The other people are correct in their advice above, in that you should wait until you should get an official evaluation from an experienced clinica...

I've learned to live with my therapist claiming I have Asperger's and my psychiatrist not believing it. I don't care any more who is right. I might be somewhere in the grey zone where changing criteria would include or exclude me depending on interpretations. My experiences are better described wit...

I have seen psychologists that told me "no you don't have that, you wouldn't be able to have a job, you wouldn't be able to talk" etc... There is a lot of misconceptions about autism and spectrum of autism. A psychiatrist put me on antidepressants and that was pretty much it. That did not...

I think so, I'm just going to relax as I will be okay either way. She's given me some amazing coping skills and confidence in myself, which I really needed!

One yr. I was seeing a ASD counselor who thinks I have it, but I'm not taking even that to heart until/unless I get a diagnosis. I've decided not to sweat about it while waiting. That's a good idea, I should probably do that too. That's a long time though, it sucks doesn't it? :/ I guess having a d...
