My mother not at all but my father while we don't see eye to eye with everything he helps out sometimes and we still do things together unconditionally. It's healthy from my point of view even though we are also a bit distant from each other, there's never any arguments. My mother on the other hand,...

Yes I'm an age regressor, it's also weird because because I have a hyper logical part of me into biology and new integrative measures through that for my life and others. But I've just come to terms with the fact that I'm like a 10 year old with a hyper intelligent AI system and I don't even care to...

I normally just try to explain in the best detail I could about what is going on, on a biological level in a somewhat simple fashion and I think that is really the best you can do if they are still unable to understand which many still won't as your average person also isn't going to be able to gras...

I create new words all the time, my sense of humor is also really odd and abstract. I don't really tell jokes as much as incorporate a mannerism I have into some humorous twist usually involving repeating a word that was already a bit nonsensical I normally use with a diversion of my usual body lang...

I'm good at budgeting things and planning things out but in the details my downfall is that I'm pretty impulsive. That's one of my downfalls in general when it comes to practical functioning, I'm much more of an unhibited individual driven by a weird combination of spiritual logic and emotional outp...

Hello. When a professional (doctor, therapist, psychologist, et cetera) refers to an autistic person's "restrictive interests" what do they mean? It's how people describe focused, passionate interests they don't share. I mean, you could call their marriages restrictive, but if they like b...

In my personal experience yes they can be different things, a lot can happen to a mind and people with other neurodegenerative conditions can get so bad that they truly have little grasp on what they are doing. In any case there are levels to everything and for example from a lifetime of experience ...

Has this gotten worse or better for anyone lately? I wonder if it changes with people's attitudes and conditions of the economy? Well from being a kid to now in general like someone else said in this thread a long time ago that in adulthood, the same bullies are still doing their things but they're...

Never in my life besides my case worker occasionally, kid you not. Most of my life has when I was a kid till now has consisted of people getting upset or even enraged at me for just existing while autistic. People still talk behind my back and I just don't care. As I just know even if they actually ...

You can have an intellectual disability in one area and not others, I for example have dyscalculia and need a lot of help when it comes to figuring out more complex financial matters I'm literally not able to understand besides on a very basic level. I can read/write just fine though and think in vi...

"Smartest": Visual-Spatial (and Intrapersonal, to an extent). "Dumbest": Bodily-Kinesthetic (and Naturalistic, had that option existed). In other words, I draw drawings and get myself injured by slips, trips and falls. Same for me, I'm a physically out of sync human camera and n...

I tend to find a place in nature to go away from everyone and everything, once my body adjusts a little past the sensory assault of getting outside it's not the worst thing in the world if it's a calm day weather wise, the only issues is getting past the street. My body and mind will react to everyt...

If you feel like you have tried, and someone says you haven't, they could simply be messing with you. Yeah, I completely agree with this!! If some streetwise bullies who have acute ToM sense that you're sensitive about your struggles and being invalidated in spite of them, they will lie or exaggera...

I have mixed feelings, as a noticeably ND person (I prefer that, I would get offended if someone called my autistic man or just man in general as I just don't identify with either as much as my body doesn't care to an extent). Yes I can in fact go anywhere in public, I have rights but discrimination...
