Are those really the right symptoms to prove he's autistic, or could it be his way, his background, the fact that he is a politician, or some other neurological disorder?

Brexit hasn't really changed anything except make some European countries dislike us.

Free healthcare will still be prioritized for foreign people over British people.

The UK is pretty good. We have the tax funded NHS.

Is that for foregeiners too, though?

Um, yes, in fact foreigners get first priority, although it depends what country you're from.

In the UK, it means it's about to turn green. In the US, it means it's about to turn red. It means both in the UK too. If the yellow light comes on while the red light is still in, it means it's about to turn green. If the yellow light is the only light shining then it means it's about to turn red.

I used to have a fear of dogs when I was a child, and because dogs can somehow sense fear they will go to you and jump up or something, which is the opposite of what a person (particularly a child) with a fear of dogs wants a dog to do. One time when I was 11 I was walking home from school, and I us...

The only reason why I don't have kids is because I'm scared of being pregnant, I can't face all that pain giving birth (even C-sections are painful), and I have a phobia of vomiting which will probably affect the bond between me and my child when the child is ill with a stomach flu. I can't adopt be...

I get jealous of my NT peers for being better than I am at making friends. It's not that I don't want other people to have friends, it's just that other people having friends reminds me of how lonely and hopeless I am and I get frustrated, especially if socially awkward or odd people still seem to h...

An ambivert is a person who is both an introvert and an extrovert. I've always been an ambivert. I could be painfully shy at school but I was a very social child and craved company of other children every day. As an adult I love associating myself with people and I enjoy social interaction and don't...

Usually NTs don't meet "the love of their life" until they're in their mid-20s, and these days they don't even seem to stay together. I met my boyfriend at 24 and I'm still with him today, while some NTs my age just can't seem to settle in relationships. I didn't get my first job until I w...

I've come up with a list of common social skills, in no particular order. Communication - B+, I don't have a problem communicating in general with family, partner and colleagues, such as asking for things or problem solving, etc Assertiveness - C average, because I'm assertive to people I know well ...

My social skills are "spiky", so I can't just give myself one grade. I have a different grade for different social skills and it's impossible to give myself one overall grade.

I wasn't planning on joining any forums, but when I first had internet in my house (in late 2009) I finally had the private opportunity to research autism to try to understand my diagnosis better. After a couple of months of googling about autism, I inadvertently stumbled upon a WP thread and I had ...

It all depends on the time of the year. I like the rain in the autumn, winter and early spring, but not too much rain in the summer months, unless it's at night. I don't mind thundery showers in the spring and summer months, but not persistent rain.

Murder is never an answer. If the mother was that exhausted and stressed then she should have just hit her or something. Yes I know hitting is wrong and everything but it's still better than killing.

Bloody upstairs neighbour, always doing some noisy activity or some sort of activity that involves moving around for hours, ie obsessive cleaning.
