Anyone who used the word "cure" for themselves or their child, with regards to autism, doesn't understand autism, I would say. Recovered or "not autistic anymore" I can understand using, but I think those wordings are too black and white, too much sound like a claim of being cured. Improved or no lo...

I seriously doubt it's genuine.

Not asking the girlfriend, and not doing a Yahoo search (or whatever search engine) to find out anything before posting question at Yahoo Answers?

Someone who can use Yahoo Answers can surely also use a search engine.

It depends how one defines the spectrum. Some people very narrowly define it as those who are diagnosable. Which seems to me to be a silly way to define it. Just say have autism. Spectrum implies something wider. There are those of us who have distinct autistic traits (past or present) but don't hav...

Question for the NTs (or informed Aspies): Why is the way you say something considered to be more important than what you say? This happens all the time with my NT husband and me. I'll say something, and he'll get upset because of the way I said it, without actually paying attention to my words . W...

I don't actually have AS (self-nondiagnosis), but I have autistic traits, including in the social realm. But I don' t have difficulty with facial expression. In fact, I make a lot of use of non-verbals to make up for my weaknesses. So, I totally get that being good at facial expression doesn't mean ...

@judyjuice My thought is, maybe it's perfectly reasonable for him to give up on trying to understand your feelings. Some things just aren't possible. And it doesn't make sense to keep trying to do something that we just can't do. I could say a lot more, but it would really be outside the realm of wh...

And, from what you say, yours is not at all a BPD pattern. So, why not? I mean, how does my behaviour I wrote down differentiate? BPD goes back to childhood and manifests in adolescents. It may be caused (or partly caused) by repeated ongoing trauma in childhood. Or subjective trauma. But not a sin...

Out of personal interesst I have a question: What does it mean if someone behaves just in certain situation borderline-like? I ask, because I had a trauma after I was brought in a closed section against my will in a psychiatric hospital. I had to stay there against my will for 2 weeks and totally f...

Is it normal for NTs to ask WHY someone is okay? When I was going to the spa the girl giving me a massage asked me how my day is going. I know this a question NTs ask to be friendly. I told her my day has been okay. After I said that she asked why it's okay. I thought that was a VERY weird question...

Yup, faith is illogical. Oh, some people try to make is logical. But ultimately, it's not a thing of logic.

It does, for many of us, make sense to participate in religion. We get something valuable out of it.

If I am confronted, at some point, with compelling evidence of the existence of God, as depicted in the Bible, then I still would be unable to worship such a genocidal, hateful, megalomaniacal monster, based on what I have read in that book. That's only one of the views of God in the Bible. Not the...

For those who do not feel sad about what happened, by your own logic, no one should feel sad about you being bullied, or treated bad in general. Afterall, they don't know you, so why should they care about yout. And by that logic, you should have no anger inside of you that no one cares about you, ...

If you dont feel bad for a the man that lost his six year old daughter and possibly his wife too then there is something (more than aspergers) wrong with you. I don't feel anything for that. Why would I? I don't know them. I'd feel bad if it happened to someone I cared about. This I relate to much ...

@ Misty: I think a lot of it also has to do with the difference in how NT's think, view and relate to things as opposed to those on the spectrum. I don't understand why you are saying that to me in particular. It's a good statement. I've certainly no objection to it. But I don't see how it relates ...
