This is what I get when I click the Aspie Affection button:

Database error occured. Check the query and/or DB connection

This has been the case for weeks. I have sent 2 messages asking for help with this, but no reply has come.

It would be helpful to have a similar list of traits written from the opposite point of view, things that NT's do which those who are less NT find annoying. Then, when my more NT friends did something I found irritating, I could look it up on the list and attribute it to their brain wiring. It would...

The need for peace and quiet is a challenge some days. I have been very open about my diagnosis, and many here have helped me in one way or another. I am building my own home, so I will have a place to be alone. Right now it is hard, because I do not yet have my own kitchen. I cook in the community ...

Years ago I learned that people can't tell that you are not looking at their eyes if you are looking at their forehead instead. The forehead is a lot easier to look at, if I just concentrate on the rather blank middle region. When young, I used this tactic to win a staring contest.

I have lived in intentional communities for about 25 years. Even though I have AS, I want to be with people. The last two intentional communities I have been involved with (including Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, to which I currently belong) have many members who are quite accepting of those who are no...

No, I don't know why these things happen. I am just responding in an attempt to give you some support. Maybe bad things have to happen to allow us to appreciate the good, but I do not see why the extremely bad things involving innocents have to happen. I am with you - in the limited way that this fo...

I think I was a morning person until I started school. Then morning began to mean school or (now) work. I tend to put off going to bed in a futile attempt to prevent the morning (and work time) arriving, or maybe in the attempt to have more awake time in my life away from work. I finally settled int...

It will be familiar to you, perhaps, but it is new to me. Finally, I have foound out what the "problem" has been all my life. People always said I was different, some in kinder ways than others. I was ashamed and did not fit in. I was very quiet, so as not to say the wrong thing. When I earned a MS ...
