I dunno if "symptoms" decline with age, but having the experience/practice to have learnt a bit more what to look out for and how to deal with it helps. Also the maturity to stop giving a damn and reacting badly less often. Ultimately I think it's still there, underneath, it's just a case ...

Regarding the general topic at hand, has anybody considered maybe just... not vomiting political opinions in public in the first place? . I, for one, addressed that very issue...see above. Probably others on this thread did as well. Ah, apologies, I admit I skimmed the thread a bit vaguely, trying ...

Regarding the general topic at hand, has anybody considered maybe just... not vomiting political opinions in public in the first place? Why should it be anybody's business what my political leanings might be, or any of my business what theirs are? Why should that dictate whether I'm welcome in a sho...

Same as if it were a male friend. I tend to prefer to buy my own just for simplicity's sake, but if somebody buys for me then I'll keep it in mind to return the favour when the opportunity arises. I'll keep the cost sensible both because I don't want to take advantage and because I'm easily pleased,...

It's a social lubricant, but it helps significantly if everybody is drinking. Then everybody's at the same level of outgoing/stupid. Being tipsy (not very drunk, but drunk enough to be affected by it) can work around sober people, as long as you're just a bit more lively and outgoing than usual, but...

Half of me feels like an adult, I can pay bills, I can generally keep on top of things, find my way to fixing adult life stuff if it goes a bit wrong, that sort of thing. Functionally, in that sense, I feel like I'm mature and independent enough to get by. The other half of me is still a late teena...

... I understand that sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do, and I'm willing to do that to some extent . What I resent is that there's no option to say "I cannot do this, my brain does not function that way, I literally cannot explain to you what my experience of this/understand...

This may not be the case in all countries (or in this specific case), but it probably bears pointing out anyway for anybody reading this thread: some pubs are called hotels, and some people will refer to them by that name even if they mean visiting for the bar (or restaurant, as people have mentione...

↑ So, from your description, one could safely assume that it was a matter of you quitting because they would not do things your way. When you put it like that it sounds like I'm being petulant, which some might argue I am, but I think it's indicative of an unwelcoming environment that doesn't focus...

I've had considerable experience (as a student) in education and I've never liked it that much. It's never really catered to my way of thinking/working, despite there being some (minor) accommodations for those with disabilities, such as extra time in exams. All the stupid rigid requirements and rul...

A lot of epidemiologists believe situation of mixing vaccinated and unvaccinated people + lifting restrictions is the perfect environment for variants not affected by vaccines to emerge. This is a different type of risk. General public, most governments and politicians don't understand that. This i...

I don't know if I'm trying to convince you or myself in posting this, but things will get back to normal. Further removal of restrictions is happening here in the UK on the 17th of May, and it seems we're on track for the 21st of June to be the removal of most of the rest of the restrictions. The f...

Some injection pain is definitely fear-related too. Some people get stressed and tense up and then it IS gonna hurt. I have regular blood tests and the nurse that does those is really good. Yeah it stings very slightly but provided I look the other way it's no big deal. :-) Yeah, I'm not super phob...

It's weird, because I'm not at all interested in what he's doing and never been, but the NT world seems head over heels for anything he does. Will this be a funny case of the NT world embracing a person with purported AS more than the AS community itself? Reminds me a bit about the Greta story. He ...
