No, no! You're not the only one. The older I get, the more I feel I'm regressing back to when I was very young. I really don't feel any different.

Well hi, you're not the only "geezer" here, although I guess at your age it's an honorary title so far. I think you're doctor's response is representative of what happens to Aspies when they turn into adults. Lately, I have been searching around for adult support groups and things like tha...

Thank you for posting this. I have felt the same way. Diagnosed at age 56 after a lifetime of wondering what the hell is wrong with everyone else. Hang on. Thank you. I really like the way you phrased that. I think I must have been 60 before I really "got" that the problem wasn't with eve...

I don't think I relate to the LGBT community because they called me uptight for not wanting to f**k guys who ask me for sex within seconds of meeting me for the first time. :? Yeah, that and the fact that when we went to school 400 years ago we were terrorized for being different, but they write yo...

The Mandated Reporter law is, by far, the greatest reason why I am reluctant to go to counseling That is very perceptive indeed. I see many times that the wrong statement can bring a phalanx of government lawyers to bear on some poor patient, who has no money and whose life will be made way, way wo...

Well, I always enjoy listening to Chomsky's lectures as they usually are thought provoking. On the other hand, his rhetoric in the link, like that of many so-called "climate activists," has more than a small resemblance to the way religious fundamentalists present ideas. If you don't belie...

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very good for this. I also highly recommend a book by the British philosopher Bertrand Russell called Conquest of Happiness which you can get as a free pdf at It's a very short book, and Russ...

Does anyone else know what I mean? Women at work give me this look all the time. Like there's something not quite right about her look I'll admit it still hurts after all these years that people still think I'm weird and not in the good way I try so freaking hard to imitate "normal" peopl...

How Do You Deal With Being Precieved As Dumb? I simply take every opportunity to prove them wrong. That has proved to be very tiring as I have gotten older. In my work life, I always thought outstanding performance would get the gaslighters off my back. I'd strive for accomplishments that were reco...

This all reminds me of the point where money came to engineering. Lots of money. Money for start-ups, and money for employees. Before that, 40 years ago, it was a refuge for misfits and Aspies like me, who had no self esteem outside of our abilities to understand very complex scientific principles a...

It's obvious a lot of the writers loathe the traits we tend to represent, and then some additional ones many of us do not. Seems familiar enough to me. Reminds me of middle school. A lot of people here on WP can tell tales of isolation, rejection, ostracism. It marked them for life. No wonder we're ...

I'm gonna go smoke in the metaphysical corner again if anyone wants to join me me, you're welcome. Well hi cb! Holidays can be hard on people, especially if we're lonely. Actually this is one of the better years for me as, due to a bout of introversion I'm alone today doing housework and listening ...
