Ha, I thought I was the only one having that. It feels like I don't have any memory at all, but I believe it has to do with certain things having to bring it up, than I can think of old memories in clean detail and can walk around in the memory.

LOL! I 100% agree! People who don't want to be special are special!

Yep I have that too, I can go back to places and walk around (if I choose to do that), I can choose what I want to remember and what not, the shitty thing is that I have such a selective memory that I don't save all things that were hurting (and for me my life started to only hurt since I was 12) an...

It's probably because of my depression of the last 5 years, but I hate autism, to be honest I dont think it has any positive elements. I want a normal life, with a group of friends, having fun, clubbing, partying, being succesful etc. Well, hm, I have a friend who is extremely popular, has about 350...

True, its not very detailed for an autistic person, but a NTér wouldn't remember this I guess. Heck, it was three years ago and I still know the colors and materials and facial expressions of something not important. I don't think thats extremely neurotypical..

Ow, I would trade my long-term memory for a short-term anytime! Err, where am I by the way? :) The girl constantly said when I was chatting with her today 'Did I say that?', 'Did that happen?' etc. Funny when you know that 3 years ago you gave the girl a pink paracetamol/ubiproven which contained 10...

Today I was talking with a girl about some memories from 3 years ago while I was living for two years in Romania. I thought having a detailed memory is normal, I thought its quite normal to remember almost everything. But she was shocked. Here is just a small bit of the things i remember. -- Ok, jus...

Well, I know from myself that even when the present is extremely fun for me I still stay emotion-less, or have emotions for a few weeks max. :( and I searched so long for passions but without emotions I don't feel passionate about anything.

falling in love might bring your emotions back.


Well, the few times I fell in love I was happy for about 2 weeks, once 4 weeks max. I was really in love with one of my ex-girlfriends, but after two weeks I closed down again, I still loved her enormously but I couldn't feel it.

Hey guys, I'm wondering if this is common in AS. I have shut down all emotions now for the last 5 1/2 years and it makes me very depressed. I shut them down after a LOT of bullying and a severe trauma. Is this common in AS? Do many aspies shut down their emotions? If so, how do you get them back? I ...

I know how you feel, I've been severely abused too and I had one specific girl who I extremely loved and had a relation with for about 2 years. I missed her so much that I got a psychosis. I still miss her while it's 2 years later now.
