I didn't want to post this in the rant section because I'm feeling both positive and also despondent about this. I'm a grad student and I was finally given a diagnosis of PDD-NOS this semester. I know some of my difficulties with school for the last 3yrs have comefrom behavior link to my pdd-nos tra...

I feel the same way. Sometimes I just have to make the decision to do something and ignore all the extraneous issues I have. Socially I think it's similar. Watching the way certain family members have imploded because they had isolated themselves too much combined with the fact that I became depress...

To Roman: it's like a step above aspergers in terms of not meeting absolutely every single criterion for an asperger's diagnosis, but most of them.

To TenPencePiece: thanks!

I didn't know where to put this, but this seems as good of a place as any. I'm diagnosed PDD-NOS. Finally! Yipee! :D

Absolutely, aspies suffer from anxiety. I've suffered with it for much of my life. I've recently been reading a book that's realy good and has been helping me with my anxiety. It's called "Asperger Syndrome and Anxiety: A Guide to Succesfl Stress Management" by Nick Dubin. He's a mental health profe...

Be careful with having a friend act as a go between. If someone told me someone else liked me, my first reaction would be to wonder why the guy didn't tell me to my face and I'd be a bit skeptical about the guys' intentions. Just make sure that the friend is someone that the girl trusts and warn the...

Since subtle hints don't work with us, try the direct approach. For example: "Hi I think you're a really nice and interesting person I would like to take you to the dance. Would you like to go with me?" Keep it short, specific and to the point. Do the same with any follow up conversations or she wil...

I have a really hard time with getting anxious when I cant see how something will turn out, which makes completing all the steps I need to do to complete the task hard to do. Stress (e.g. from bad bosses, weird smelling coworkers, too much/too little socializing etc) makes everything worse and my ab...

A couple questions for you to think about. (1) How much time do you have until you have to present something for the science fair? If you have more time you could try contacting some of the physics/applied math professors at the universities near you, explain that you have an interest in quantum mec...

It may also be that she didn't remember you; you may have seemed familiar, but she may not have recognized you, hence the frowning. I know that I probably couldn't remember any of my classmates. If she couldn't remember you well, she might not have remembered you offending her when you were classmat...

Hi I'm not an expert on medicating kids at an early age, but I can share my own experience. I started taking meds at the age of 6 for epilepsy and continued for 6 years. The meds controlled my seizures and I took them without a problem because I would rather not have the seizures. While anger issues...

Well, depending on how close you and your coworker are you may not actually have to bring it up. I don't think you need to hug or touch him either. If he brings it up or you feel you have to say something, you could say "I'm sorry to hear about your loss. You must be worried about your sister." Just...

Hi, I have bad motor skills, too. I could never do tennis, fencing or baseball very well because it required too much hand-eye coordination. I've taken tai chi before and it did take me a little longer to learn the moves, but I did enjoy it. Perhaps if you talked to your instructor he/she might be w...
