I was doing a report for my functional analysis class, had to do a 2 page paper on the movie, Nanny McPhee. The DVD was defective, so I chucked it across the room, slammed the side of the computer with my right hand, and then I thought the monitor went out totally. Boom, I go to the floor, screaming...

Very well written. And so true! I feel that I can't hide my feelings from anyone, because it is dishonest to do so.

I don't like it that they associate mental retardation with autism. Or the fact, when I'm not smiling, they assume I'm unhappy. Usually, I am content. Or, when they use subtleties instead of being direct with me.

Your mom is a control freak, plain and simple. It is sad that she won't allow you to better yourself, if you can, I would get out of that situation.

One of those "shock stories" the popular media like to tell is how some rich families hire "image consultants" for their middle-school kids so they can begin to prep for going to a top-tier university by ensuring that everything their student does is towards that goal.

I feel that I might be a little too severe for some of the other members, here. This might be the last about The Kinks or The 60s that you might read, for a month, or two. I just want to crawl into a hole and die, right now. I keep telling you guys that nothing is going to want to make me leave, ev...

I try to remove myself from the situation that is causing me to have a sensory overload. The key is to recognize when you're being overwhelmed by it.

I can't imagine not living without it. It is second nature to me! And I think it is fun to look at the world from a different way than the NT way. I think that is boring to me.

It is like second nature to me. Doing something over and over gives me comfort, like daily routines, such as working out at a gym, then going to Culver's to eat out.

What I do with my professors now is give them a handout, explaining what needs I may have for my college courses. One is not using tact or sayings with me, and also to be direct with me, without using hand gestures, otherwise, I'll keep raising my hand to answer questions, when they don't want me to.
