I started watching a canadian show called regenesis (available free on hulu.com). In the very first episode, the character Bob starts chatting nonstop about something obscure to his co-worker (they are all briliant scientists who work in a bio-lab), then explains "people with asperger's can't help i...

I didn't read it but this paragraph is just golden: Human-frog hybrids might reveal the neurological secrets of autism. By fusing cells from the preserved brains of deceased autistic patients with the eggs of a carnivorous African frog called Xenopus, scientists have started investigating the way th...

I had a fear of swimming as a child, and I grew up in Florida with a pool in my backyard. Actually, i wasn't so much scared of swimming as much as putting my face underwater. In fact, I still won't do it. I have to wear a mask that covers the eyes and nose. For awhile I wouldn't even put my face und...

I love really long hot showers, but I tend to think that "normal" hot water is scalding so I turn it down. Now, though, I'm trying to take luke-warm shortish showers to save energy and money. Also saves time. I get my day started soon, which is a good feeling.

I had sexual feelings about crushes after the age of 12, but i never wanted to actually have sex with anyone until i met the right person. Some people, NTs and Aspies alike, desire sex on a purely physical level, whereas for others, a whole host of other connections have to be present to make it enj...

Throughout my childhood and adolescence, friends would suddenly turn on me, ignore me, or be mean to me and i was clueless as to why. My mom tells me I was rude and mean to them and ignored them, I just didn't know I was doing it. I think this is pretty common for us. I was also clueless about if a ...

I have had sleep issues all my life. When I was a child, I surrounded myself with pillows and stuffed animals and made a comfortable cozy little nest. I felt I need to be surrounded on all sides. It wasn't until I was in my 20's that i realized what my body was really craving was weight. I got a wei...

I love rainbows and bright colors. I was upset when I learned as a teenager that the rainbow represented gay people, a group I was not a part of. I was happy when i learned a few years ago it also represented autistic people, a group I am a part of. I dislike the puzzle piece ribbon, however, for tw...

When I tell people about my hiccup problem, they invariable offer some proven strategy to get rid of them. When I tell them I've tried them all, they say "Oh but have you tried _______? I swear it always works!" This just annoys me. Nothing works for me except time and, if I can, throwing up air. No...

I get hiccups from soda, bread, sometimes water, sometimes basically any food. People have hypothesized that I eat too fast and swallow air. I don't know. My hiccups are so severe that they can last for hours and hurt really bad. Then I get nauseous and feel like I'm going to throw up but then I jus...
