I had a teacher that loves to take questions that he has explained explicitly in class (i.e. the way I have learned them) then place new criteria in them and twist them so far outside of the original problem that they are new questions.... My LD is this... I see the information for the original prob...

I treat it like a greeting and respond in kind with out giving away true feelings (I lie) because normally I am at work when this happens.... though with customers I can go "I'm at work!" (implied... "WTF do you think?") with a stupid grin on my face and get them to laugh. to the cr...

I got scuba certified out in hawaii. I had two issues, one was I couldn't get myself stabilized (I would sink or float, there was no in between). The other was that out in hawaii the water looks so clear that the bottom looks only 5 feet away, then when you get in the bottom is actually about 40 fee...

OK..... I am going to try the teach gently request.... So while ignoring the emotions that the little girl's soccer story brings, I will put my "two cents in." The earplug/pain issue has already been addressed to a fair extent, so I am skipping that part. What I am surprised to see is that no one ha...

I've worked retail now for almost 4 years (two different stores) The OP has some very good points. Most retail stores will train you how to act towards customers. It also gives a high volume of "greeting" type conversations, So I have gotten fairly good at "hello how are you today?" lines. It takes ...

We moved around a lot. I learned from meeting the different people at different schools that YES something is different about me, and that other people notice it when I speak. So I learned not to speak about anything that is remotely interesting to me to anyone that I ever want to speak to again, be...

Yes, but what about the aspies whose main obsession requires them to read abnormal amounts of material, that has nothing to do with daily life.... like romance novels, or murder investigations, or the entire series of classifications of a specific type of animal.....
