I agree. Usually the extended cut is an improvement...but think Alien [1979] is an exception (and from what I read online I think the director prefers the theater release version, too ). I also agree about it almost being like unrelated sets of movies. There were {the four Predator movies}, {the fou...

To some extent there are similarities between you and us. I was getting mentally frazzled and needed time to introvert and recover and she assumed she was the problem--sometimes she was a contributing factor but usually it was work (I was often very unhappy at work) but by trying to interact with me...

Well. He's a rich actor. He should be able to mask and cope with the best of them.

I recommend having any discussion on this when he is in a good mood and keeping things brief. Maybe you can agree on a code phrase. We use "I need to introvert." My bride used to pester me for conversations when I was frazzled (which work did to me a lot before I retired). When I didn't wa...

It doesn't sound like he questions the accuracy of the diagnosis, just the relevance.

Welcome to WP! I hope you decide this is a nice neighborhood.

I was diagnosed when I was 64. It explained so much! I insisted we buy champagne on the way home from getting the diagnosis at the Psychologist's office (and I got more when the written evaluation arrived in the mail).

We've been married 21 years and from my vantage point I'd observe: He's a husband guy human. If he's not snarling at you all the time and you love each other then I don't think it is surprising that the world sometimes gets him into a bad mood and it colors his interactions with you. I know my bride...

I think asking IQ would only make sense in a rambling conversation with a very close friend or family member. Asking for it to screen people for any official or semi-official purpose would seem wrong, might be illegal (it is medical info, right?), and would not be useful. -- - - They might lie. -- -...

Do you know whether or not you developed language skills normally when you were very young? Was this documented one way or the other for purposes of the assessment? Or, was it not documented either way? Nope. It was 1997? When I was three, isn’t that before computers lol. That’s the year they decri...

I'm happily loner nerd but put off by lot of what I detect in WP as "superhero-performer!" Am I wrong? What's it about? Any comments/advice appreciated! Thanks Autism is a S p e c t r u m . And folk on WP also come on a S p e c t r u m . Some of us have mild symptoms, and others have much...

Prometheus and Alien: Covenant weren't bad movies but IMO had big flaws each. I thought Prometheus [2012] had great promise...and was left hanging. Alien: Covenant [2017] felt somewhat detached from it and not more of the same potentially strong story arch...almost like they were trying to start a ...

My Dad is still alive. Two of my siblings live near him and frequently visit him. One of those siblings is a younger sister who works as a nanny for "special needs" children and sometime during 2018 she had one of those children with her when she visited Dad. I live much further from Dad a...

...to test for Aspergers but she wrote autism... The U.S. uses DSM for diagnoses related to mental health. Does Australia? The DSM first listed Asperger's Syndrome as an official diagnosis in 1994...but then in 2013 folded Asperger's Syndrome (along with some other things) into the A u t i s m S p ...

Do you think the Autism diagnosis might be wrong?

Mistakes are possible. Some folk on WP have encountered them.

But correct diagnoses are also possible!

Last night we watched: The Voices [2014] - - - "Hearing voices can be murder." My bride's reaction was four adjectives: Good. Weird. Dark. Creepy. I agree. It is a good movie. It is a horror/comedy. I enjoyed it but it made me feel faintly uneasy. Oh, Ryan Reynolds fans...he's the star and...
