1. That autistic people don't read fiction is old information no longer accurate but still gets quoted. 2. Ditto. Almost verbatim. I read fiction (mainly manga) and can get obsessed but read more nonfiction, especially science-related. I meant 'autistic' people not 'autism'. Eugh. Now I can't edit ...

It sounds like the OP has prosopagnosia. It's both the reason you can't recognize people, and the reason you don't tend to gaze at their whole face to get a gestalt the way an NT would. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosopagnosia Yeah, I have prosopagnosia & thought the same thing lol.sounds li...

On a possibly related note, I just found out that the Japanese word for autism literally means "self closure disorder." Hm. It's just a direct translation of the word 'autism (auto+ism)' with consideration to its history and philology, and because it was translated many years ago it simpl...

Hi I've just read in a manga comic about the writer's autistic boy and found out something mind-blowing so I came back to this forum after years of absence!! Roughly translated, It said this: "Autistic people fully focus on one thing when they look at something and the background becomes out of...

I've been doing alright lately with good friends having settled down in a new place after a few years and so on but recently I feel that a close friend (female) is behaving weird to me and I feel paranoid again. I also feel sad and disappointed because of a few things. I can't explain everything bec...

If you pass out randomly it could be some neurological condition. I don't quite understand why people would tell you it's anxiety, because, if it's anxiety you would pass out when you're stressed, but you say it's random. You clearly have depression so you need to seek help. I'm writing the rest und...

I didn't know these were all sensations. Some of them seem like situations or else, and I thought sensations meant the results of these situations, so that in the sentence "my skin feels itchy because of the clothing label", itchy is the sensation and the clothing label is the cause. However, I'll f...

Thanks i_wanna_blue, My friend and I had a lot of fun together and I could be silly with her around. She brought out the best and the wackiest in me. There's little chance she'll live nearby again. I'm waiting for her e-mail reply. After she left I started to get paranoid, which is what I sometimes ...

Thanks Tahitiii the four-'i'ed lady, There is no old thread that goes into detail about how I'm feeling right now. I'm just a bit down after my friend left. It's difficult for me to understand why I feel the way I feel but have been wondering since I read your post. My conclusion is it's most likely...

I'm in no position to help but, don't worry about doing everything on the list. If you make a list when you're down the list immobilises you doesn't it? I can't focus for more than a fleeting second unless I'm hyperfocusing and forgetting to eat and stuff, so I just do what catches my attention and ...

I don't know if anyone remembers me I joined some time ago I stopped writing after I reached a hundred posts then the fervency deserted me like it often does. My friend has left the country and I'm a little down. It's really lonely. It's funny I don't always cope with negative emotions I feel detach...

From a historical perspective, it can be legitimately argued that as horrible as destroying two cities was, it may have prevented millions more dead. The Japanese military was literally fighting to the death, refusing to surrender. At MOST the soldiers would suicide rather than surrender in many ca...
