I participated in a study recently, and the professionals reclassified me as "qualifying on the autism spectrum, but not severe enough to warrant an Asperger's diagnosis (I feel the need to state that he failed to capitalize "Asperger's). I was diagnosed as autism spectrum, PDd-NOS. I was diagnosed ...

I was recently offered a job at a nonprofit as a result of my volunteer work. I asked my father to help me negotiate a wage (they asked what I needed), and a suitable agreement was reached. I know that the director of 20 years does not allow unapproved overtime, and here in California, anything over...

I do think that there is something there. One of the earliest emotions that was not native to me that I learned was embarrassment. I was in an all-boys preschool class (although I didn't know I wasn't one then) and I kept saying ridiculous things; my first official memory of embarrassment as a conce...

Or so I'm naming it, although it's mostly a query. I've managed to make friends in my adult life, and while the few friends I have (3) are genuine, and certainly don't use me in any fashion, I look back on the formation of our friendships, and I recognize an uncommon financial generosity on my part ...

I want to begin this by saying I harm myself with cutting only a few times per year. I've always thought it harmless. I use it as a directive to process what I feel during extreme sensory overload. I think that I cut too deep tonight. I don't understand; I made the same motion that I have done for o...

I've gone back and forth on polyamory. I had no objections until I hit my mid-twenties; that's also when I became single for the first time in my adult life. I have no objections to open relationships. Sex is sex. I also have a documented tendency to be polyamorous (to truly love multiple individual...

Quite clever, above post! I don't think changing sex is (or should be) about attracting the mate that you want. I'm a gay FTM; that means I severely narrowed my dating field by changing sex. Trying to date men in a phallocentric community when you have no phallus is far trickier than trying to attra...

If I think about them, yes, but I've been called out at work, and I just tell them as nervous habits. My verbal stims . . . well, those I attempt to cover as best I can.

I'm a new computer science major. I'm pretty pissed at the object-oriented approach, but I want to program forever, so as part of my studies, I'm looking to go beyond the HTML I learned way back in the 90'sand actually catch up with the real world. Machine language is all very well and good, but if ...

As a gay man, I find it disgusting. As a prude and a boss, I find it inappropriate. I'm not sure if I can complain, or if my complaint would be construed as harassment! One of my employees asked if she could get the other staff member to wait for a moment while she went to the restroom (this was whe...

I have variable memory abilities; they differ drastically, but they follow similar conditions. When I read or hear something (it is stronger for visual input by a significant margin), my recall capabilities are phenomenal (especially if strings of numbers are involved; even more so if those strings ...

I am under the impression that I don't lie. And it is certainly true that I rarely lie (I never lie about facts or circumstance, to avoid punishment or gain rewards, to manipulate others, to avoid embarrassment or hurting another's feelings . . .although in the last case I try to remember that lying...

No, I see it as a distorted ellipse with the narrow end in the winter months. I have great difficulty with doing math involving time. "Four days later" is very difficult to conceive. I definitely don't have Time-Space Synesthesia, although the days and months themselves are still subject to typical ...
