I'm sort of cursed with low muscle tone and I'm an aspie. It happens quite a lot in Asperger's. That is why we slouch. It takes painful tension to stand straight.

Me yes.

I would never be able to do it with 7 hours day after day. I'd always be tired. I have a lot of REM sleep.

I think it depends on whom you are apologizing to. Some people don't care if you even know what you did wrong, they need you to apologize as an emotional gesture, that you are sad you did it. Some people do not care so much about the gesture, they more care about that you understand what you did wro...

I might not be a good conversation starter but I know better than to ask smalltalk with someone who just went to a funeral. I would be more prone to say something totally stupid aimed to show them they have my sympathies. Also people who are normally quite sane sometimes say dumb things at times. Li...

Playing "Sweet Drmzzz". It's free online. I played all the game levels but sometimes I play a level just for relaxation.

NT:s often don't know when to stop. Because for some reason it is OK to hurt people with questions. If it is the right ones. "What do you DO?" "As in work? I am on disability but I'm interested in..." "Why are you on disability?!" "Because X,Y, Z, anyway..." (...

Not shy. Talkative. But if I'm paired up with someone shy I might not be able to drive the convo anyway. And if paired up with someone talkative I might not be given a chance to talk. Also I hate to intrude so I don't ask personal stuff cuz I hate when people ask me that. But at the same time I migh...

Long ago I mentioned to my doctor that I hoped my illness would kill me. She just laughed as if I was joking. I have realized later on that I look pretty much the same when I am OK compared to when I'm depressed. People usually think I do better than I do when I am not well because I just explains i...

I don't think of it as a disorder per se. I might be one of those annoying people who thinks it is part of who I was supposed to be. Everything neurological is a tradeoff. If I want some of my talents, those cannot exist in a brain that is not sensitive to anything. The talents are closely connected...

I've talked about this with people and most of them have no idea what I'm talking about. I feel my third inner language is language, my second one is images and my first is just thoughts. People then ask me what makes up the thoughts that makes me know what I'm thinking about. I have no idea really....

My theory is that most doctors are sociopaths. Sociopathy in doctors is in most cases a learned personality disorder that they acquired at some point in medical school, where they had their empathy completely conditioned out of them as it is unlikely that the sheer volume of sociopaths in the medic...

Not sure what obsessiveness means, but I take a low dosage Luvox for this with amazing results. It is the number one med for OCD. All people cannot tolerate SSRIs though.

Like if you get up at 7 you do, if you eat cereal for breakfast you do that. And so on throughout the day. I can't relate to that at all. It takes me a million years to establish routine, and all my routines are piggypacking on other people's routines. I do some stuff the same way, if I have found t...

Insistence on sameness, inflexible adherence to routines, or ritualized patterns of verbal or nonverbal behavior (e.g., extreme distress at small changes, difficulties with transitions, rigid thinking patterns, greeting rituals, need to take same route or eat same food every day). This is from DSM-...
