Yes, I thought about it a lot when my son was diagnosed. Partly at least because my mother always said that he was very like me as a small child. My son and I are very alike in many ways. I remember reading somewhere that many people who are diagnosed as adults seek out an assessment after a child i...

It seems to me that much of what you are describing is typical behaviour for a child that age, and your son sounds like a lovely and charming little boy. From your description there are some traces of behaviours that are associated with autism, and maybe that's what got you worried, but in my own so...

Now, the only men I have as friends on FB are men I know and am on friendly terms with in real life. In the past, I had accepted friend requests from men who were friends of friends. Two or three of them kept messaging me - one to the point that I was avoiding FB because every time I went on FB he m...

Her reply: "So... their parents would rather their children get sick and possibly die than be like me." My heart broke. Because she is 100% awesome and there isn't a single piece of her I don't love. I had a similar conversation about why some people chose not to vaccinate with my son whe...

The pinch left bruises on her arm. Is that OK? I just can't get around this. My Aspie husband won't talk to me in that he works away and hasn't been in contact. It's like he doesn't care about our marriage or our daughter. No, it's not ok that a little girl was left with bruises on her arm. Yes, sh...

^ In your opinion Marcia , what are the chances for a new referendum in Scotland (especially since the EU more or less openly invited you to join them) and what do you think the results would be? What seems to be the local reaction? Thank you (I'm sorry for your distress, here in Europe we're all s...

It's a disaster. And even worse in Scotland where there is now increased clamour for another independence referendum. We are in the ridiculous situation of being led by a party whose raison d'être is independence from the UK, while simultaneously wanting to remain in the EU. I feel sick, angry, sad,...

I agree with the previous poster that this is a really bizarre question. Where did you get this idea?

My son was diagnosed at 7 with Asperger's and he also had the behaviours that you describe here. Difficulty with transitions and with change. Once things went back to normal, he calmed down almost immediately. I found it helpful to give him prior warning of changes to his routine, and to explain wha...

What a gorgeous wee dog! And definitely a Mitzi - the new name really suits her. Edited to add: You originally asked about how to deal with your parents' controlling behaviour. CaptainAwkward.com is a very useful site with lots of very helpful information about how to set and keep boundaries with pa...

Shocking and very sad news. Yes, she was definitely the target. An older man seems to have tried to help her, and he received minor injuries.

The EU Referendum is next week and Jo Cox had been active in the campaign to remain. Britain First want to leave the EU.

Having children with this guy does not seem like a good idea. Not because he may (or may not) have Asperger's, but because the relationship itself seems very rocky.

Whether or not she has Asperger's, it does sound like you are incompatible. Those aspects of her behaviour and personality which had you threatening and then actually breaking up with her are still going to be there, and won't significantly change. Oh, and she's a woman, not a girl! And being an int...

Please, please, take your baby to a doctor for emergency treatment! I am in the UK, and it seems you're in the US and I do understand that our health systems are very different, but this is a small baby with a serious and painful condition. Take the baby to a doctor for full assessment and treatment...

Good for her! You say yourself you were "very domineering and mean at times" and that you "pushed her away". But you expected her to stay, and be treated badly by you. Then she met someone else, and now you want her back! I've met men like you before - who think they can treat w...
