My soon to be ex wife has Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), which is another cluster B personality disorder. You'll find that a lot of us Aspies who have empathy become targets of narcissists and their abuse. After 7 years of putting up with abuse, I'm DONE! After a lot of self-discovery and re...

I don't get why you're supposed to say sorry when someone tells you someone has died. I didn't kill them, why should I say sorry? There's more than one definition of " SORRY ". In this case, saying "I'm sorry for your loss" is not an admission of guilt, but rather an acknowledgement of sympathy, pi...

I was reading a post in another thread about sales and thought I'd put this up about my experience in sales. I haven't visited the forum for a while and thought about my fellow aspies. I know some aren't doing so well monetarily, so I hope this may give hope to a few: I'll never forget the first tim...

I just had a garage sale over the weekend and found my old Morse code learning tapes. Wow. It was from Radio Shack and covered 5WPM to 13WPM. Thats what I used to pass my test. I even passed 20WPM by the skin of my teeth. Little did I know they'd all but eliminate the code a few years later. So is a...

Walt Disney. His fascination with drawing started when he was a kid. He also had a fascination with trains - haha. He was also synesthetic.

Well on a lighter note, I'm glad I dropped out of school and got my GED. I seriously thought about going back to school and finishing the hard way, but I'm sure the same thing would've happened to me again since there was no diagnosis for AS in '93. I was complaining to God tonight about how my life...

I would suggest you not let this upset you at all. Don't give in to the "victim mentality". Its just too easy to give in to and gets you no where really quick. There are bullies and people who don't understand others who are different everywhere. Such is life. Deal with it. I don't mean to sound har...

* Being more vulnerable to abuse * Having bad social skills * Anything else that is negative Why are those anti-cure people so aggressive? For me, it kind of feels like a punishment from God, per se, considering this condition he gave me makes me more vulnerable to abuse. I am 17 and haven't been a...

I can totally relate to this. I had a deep hatred for people for a long time. I thought most people were shallow, and perhaps many are, but it didn't excuse me for harboring these feelings. I had to take a really good look at myself. Some of the things I abhorred in others were things that I did mys...

I found it interesting that they used sounds from the ELF spectrum as their background noise. Cool indeed.

Just out of curiosity, how many of you like to invent or build things? Secondly, have you found that your drive to do this has diminished over the years (perhaps due to circumstances, not enough time/resources, lack of drive/interest)? I ask because when I was in junior high, I used to love to build...

To add to the discussion... it seems like I periodically climb to new plateaus. The trick, for me, is once on the plateau I must accept where I am at for the time being. Am I the greatest socializer in the world? Heck no! But, I'm ok with that. With each successive level I achieve, there is less str...

I don't think it is impossible for us to create new neuro-pathways in our brains by simply changing our point of view and keeping it consistent. Its like learning to ride a bike. Perhaps you learned something that changed the way you think and therefore changed the way you viewed things. Reading A L...

You'd probably have better luck glancing at an eye to eye level rather than staring. Its just a brief moment of eye contact. From what I've learned, its only best to maintain eye-to eye contact while engaged in a conversation. And you have to use voice inflection so as not to bore the other person a...
