I don't like the smell of fish or perfumes. I don't like the taste of fish either, I'll eat most food or at least tolerate them but fish gives me a gag reflex the textures terrible. I have sensory issues over almost every kind of clothing and it's very hard for me to find something comfortable. I c...

It can be called Autism Spectrum Condition or Autism Spectrum Syndrome. The second suggestion wouldn't fly, due to its initials: "I have ASS." How about Autism Spectrum Neurotype? The word "disorder" is not necessary to get gov't assistance. Schizophrenics and those with Down sy...

I tend to be the opposite of many with autism as I dislike heavy/constricting things around/on my torso. Maybe odd for autism. I like swimming underwater, though (outside of the dark depths, as that sets off the claustrophobia). I'm alright with being held, which will be odd when the constricting t...

I always lay my hand on the outside of the airplane when boarding. It's a weird good luck thing I've done my whole life. Doing "weird things" for good luck or to prevent something bad from happening is OCD. In autism doing "weird things" is done either for self-regulation, self-...

I can't stand hearing or feeling anyone's heartbeat.
If my head is on my partner's chest I have to be on the other side to avoid the thump.


This is when I'm at home by myself. So yes, the door is open.

Stickers on products and fruit, on bra straps (that disgusting quality control sticker that was wedged between the parts of the strap where you adjust; disgusting!! !), little stickers or sticky labels on anything you can buy at a store. They must come off. I won't let my fingers come in contact wit...

these people are literally part of the reason i'm afraid to tell anyone i'm autistic, because there's so many people faking disorders that they'd probably just assume i'm faking it to be quirky or to get clout Me too. My good eye contact and communication skills are enough to make anyone disbelieve...

I fake being a "normal human" everyday. Why should I care if someone fakes being autistic? Because the reason for faking NT is different than for faking ASD. The guy in the OP's video lied to get donations, while people with actual problems need donations. Autistics may fake NT to avoid b...

There's also the possibility that you may only think that you're correctly reading a social cue -- some of the time, that is. I'm sure there've been times when I just took for granted a nonverbal cue, assuming it meant a certain thing, when in fact, I got it wrong -- but was never notified of this. ...

Yeah, I like how Lorraine Newman, and Gilda Radnor look. How much difference could it make asthestically between differing soundtrack albums of Jaws? The music centers on that rhythmic tapping of the bow strings on the necks of the string instruments. DUM-DUM-DUM-DUM.... . There cant be much differ...

Think you're safe...being on dry land? Think again! https://youtu.be/p_NS2H55dxI land shark Wouldn't it be great if '70s clothes and hairstyles came back in full force?

Naturalplastic, Sounds like you and I would have no shortage of conversation if we were to meet in a cafe. The walking shark is the epaulette (pronounced ep-eh-let) and can stay out of the water for an hour. There's one documented attack on a human by a cookie cutter shark. Life must be SOOOO boring...

Doctors have been known to downplay a patient's complaints because they're "too young" to have a certain disease, or, a doctor is quick to blame obesity on the symptoms instead of doing a thorough workup. Women have also said that their symptoms were dismissed because "it's a MAN'S di...

Shark attacks were once a special interest, totally. Eventually they became a normal interest--the same level of interest that half the world currently has (every week there's something about a shark attack or shark sighting in the major news outlets, so there must be a big demand for this kind of n...

Where did you check? I think autistic people could be more likely to die by being shot at or hit by buses. There could be socioeconomic factors at work. Also, autistic people are more likely to be the target of severe bullying because they are different AND often fail to read the cues that they are...
