Amazon characterizes it as "notes on autism & autistics in a neurotypical world".

Maybe it should be under "General Autism Discussion" or "In-Depth Adult Life Discussion"?

Do you get a gold certificate with a diagnosis? I didn't get any kind of certificate. :( I wish I had! Even a paper certificate would've been nice. As it is all I got was a twelve-page "Psychological Evaluation" that contains enough personal information that I would prefer not...

Not a bad film, if you can get over some of pacing of the film and acting in general. A reasonable comment regarding either. Which did you mean? I was referring to The Cloverfield Paradox Then you get a strong "agree" from me. With the other film it would've been a less strong "agree...

Welcome to WP! I hope you find pleasant interactions here.

My recommendation is to remember that many of us here are also Autistic so be patient with us. And if a discussion isn't patient with you that does not mean you have to leave WP, just move to a different discussion.
