In my English class, I have been given the task of constructing a persuasive essay (to be presented in the form of a speech). Now, I enjoy writing quite a lot; however, this assignment has me drawing a blank. I do not know what I should write about (I am cincerned with other students not being inte...

Greetings, I was officially diagnosed with mild autism when I was 14/15 years old and since then I've had to teach myself the appropriate social cues,independence,etc. But one thing I still feel bad about is asking for emotional support when I need it. For instance,I'll be freaking out about someth...

WARNING: only use these if you have little to lose in the situation, i.e. you're not dependent on the other person for something, you just gave your two weeks notice, or, say, there are video cameras around and it's in a public place so there's minimal threat of assault...etc. Yes, these may sound ...

I picked "Divorced" because there wasn't an option for Separated. My husband and I split in 2010 when he made the decision to transition to female. We lived apart until 2013 when it was in our best interests to live together again (long story). So we've been living together since then but...

I am a little amazed that 56% of us are married. I only married for the first time a few days after my sixtieth birthday.

I wonder if female Aspies are more likely to be married than male Aspies. I married an NT woman.

There are many ways to tell if someone is faking Asperger's. First, you would have to be VERY familiar with the diagnostic criteria and symptoms of Asperger's. I do not mean that you know YOUR symptoms. I mean that you should be able to recognize the symptoms of Asperger's in someone else. One of th...

why does that happen?

Perhaps you never really studied the game of Chess. Maybe you do not practice it enough.
Do you really WANT to get better at chess?

I don't have the clinical version, where seemingly there's no source for it, but it can really happen regardless, can't it? It's remarkable, to go from watching a movie a day, to not being able to do 30 mins, after social rejection... makes little sense too, because I've felt loneliness per se for ...

If either of them appeal to you, or if both appeal to you take the best from both of them and leave their hypocritical dogma alone. It is not their dogmae that's necessarily hypocritical, but the people who twist the dogmas to suit their own desires and goals. Actually, Christian dogma IS hypocriti...

Aspies should stay off the Internet. We should never say anything that could imply that we're anything other than super "Uncle Tom Negroes," grateful for a place under the table and whatever scraps we get thrown. That's life on the spectrum, folks. I do not agree with you. The Internet wa...

Does anybody else have the same thing for dinner for days in a row? For me it's tuna sandwiches. It's more or less the only thing I eat for dinner. Yes, that is typical of Asperger's victims. We set about rules for what we eat or we eat the same food all the time so that the world can be safe and o...

Yup! Those awful liberals who want healthcare for all Americans, and want to have fairness in employment and equal opportunity for all. Such a terrible agenda!
