When interacting with fellow human beings is painful or difficult and Xbox is easy, and gives a 'feeling' of achievement and social interaction...it's hard to get off it. Maybe treat it like it's a game. Tell him to get xp (experience) of socialising to get better. Maybe even pay people to teach hi...

I know the cue of when I should ask which question but I still can't seem to bring myself to ask, in the hope that they'll just automatically tell me, but sometimes they don't. They're actually wanting you to ask. I understand how and why that works, so it's something I need to work on. A bit off t...

My parents thought they were helping me by dragging me out of my bedroom when company came over, not realizing that was pure torture for me. I got good grades in school so they assumed it was just shyness that I would grow out of eventually. But I never grew out of it -- I just learned how to mask b...

I hate that too.

When I go into a coffee shop, I tell the person at the counter what I want, they get it for me, I pay for it and the transaction is done without anyone sharing their life story. Why can't barbers and hairdressers be like that?

My daughter started doing that at age 10. That was the first indication we had that she was on the spectrum.

A new employee at my company goes by they/them/their. I can't tell you how scared I am about THEM going off on me if I screw up THEIR pronouns.

One of the things being on the spectrum has taught me is to live my life and not waste time or energy worrying about what other people do. The hard-core anti-abortion people might want to try doing the same.

Starbucks' music way too loud. At least, the Starbucks that I went to. At least, for me. Maybe everyone else: hard of hearing. Uncomfortable chairs. At least, for me. Maybe everyone else loves the chairs. Not enough bathrooms. Annoying how impatient customers have the nerve to bang on the door But ...

And it's not because of their overpriced and overcaffeinated coffee. I'm in a Starbucks right now working remotely. Also in here are eight other people -- like me with their laptops open not engaging in conversation, just focusing on their tasks. The nine of us are in a place where we're not expecte...

My lying a-hole ex-boss deserves to have bodily harm done to him -- no, I won't do it, but the SOB deserves it.

At best/worst, I'll visit his grave after he dies ... and I'll be sure to have a full bladder when I do.

It's a good thing for Kimmel that Will Smith isn't married to Marjorie Taylor Greene. Not wanting to state the obvious...but I would hazard a guess Greene would consider herself lucky as well (I won't go into detail lest I get a warning) No way a dog whistler like Marjorie Qaylor Greene would ever ...

The last time we went to a counselor, she basically took my side on just about everything. It was great for me, but it pissed her off so much that she decided not to go anymore -- which I understand.

Animal House -- All these years later I still crack up when I watch it (FWIW I'm guessing Flounder was on the spectrum).

The Odd Couple -- The movie was great ... the sitcom was even better (and Felix was the poster child for ADHD).

When I was in my 20s I wished that I could have an arranged marriage. Makes all that dating crap obsolete.

My wife of 22 years claims she cares about me and wants to help me but all she does is b*tch and moan about everything I do. She knows I'm not happy and want out of the marriage but because she's a good Catholic girl she won't do it unless I screw around on her or beat her up (and even then she migh...
