I need to see someone and speak with them several times to be able to recognize them, especially if they look similar to someone else. I am better able to recognize someone by their voice than by their face.

Like many aspies, I have GI problem. I've tested positive for gluten intolerance. I also can't eat a lot of dairy without problem.

It's my personal belief that these GI problems may be linked to the biological cause of autism/AS at some point in the future.

I also can't stand the Tampax brand. I also find standing up much easier than sitting down.

Sort of.

The things I like to spend money on are not typical for an NT, I think. I would rather spend my time buying a book than shopping for designer shoes. I don't care about jewelry or other status symbols. But I do like having my books. :lol:

Wow, these are amazing tips. You guys rock! I did pretty well in college, if I may say so myself. My system was a lot simpler. I used a calendar that I carried everywhere, and wrote every assignment for all my classes on one calendar. I also put down all of my tests and what pages I had to reach in ...

I also did cashiering type jobs. I liked it -- I always challenged myself to be super fast and accurate. I did OK when customers challenged something. I did work at a bookstore for a time, and although I was great with the cashiering, I was NOT great at the customer service desk. I also enjoyed work...

Oh, I wanted to add ... you may find some benefit in attending Asperger's groups if you have any near you. I've been to 3 different groups (1 as far as 2 hours away), but they are GREAT in terms of giving you someone you can speak with who truly understands.

When I first found out about Asperger's, I had a very, very tough time coping with the knowledge. Because it felt like there was no HOPE. There was no cure, I'd always make social mistakes and always risk being ostracized. But the truth is that we can LEARN, and improve. And wrong planet is a great ...

I've had really, really weird dreams - very disturbing and very real. Sometimes it takes a while to even believe that they weren't real.

I think the more you worry about this dream, the more likely you are to repeat it. I know, easier said than done.

I have very strong legs ... Sometimes at the gym I was lifting more on the seated leg press with one leg than some men were doing with two legs. But my upper body is pathetic. I can barely do 10 lbs. on the shoulder press. I'm not fast ... I have very slow reflexes and very poor balance. I'm always ...
