Why are people so petty over me using a plastic jug to fill my bucket up at work? There is only one plastic jug that has always sat in the kitchen area at work, and it's handy to fill up my bucket with, as the bucket is too big to fit into the sink. But even if the bucket could fit into the sink I'd...

Dogs are usually as spooked by loud noises as cats are. But yes there is a lot of stigma against cats. When extreme dog lovers hear about an aggressive cat they immediately think that all cats are the same and that dogs are much better. But they forget the fact that more people (particularly childre...

One of my nieces is about 18 months and my aunt said that she copies words the adults around her say, like if someone says "I need a drink" she will repeat "I need a drink" even if she's not thirsty. Does this mean she is going to be autistic, or is it just part of child developm...

Quite the opposite, I have a fear of fires, except for controlled fires like bonfires.

As a small child I would have panic attacks whenever there was a fire drill at school because I thought there was a real fire.

This is true, as an Aspie female I find attracting men and relationships easy, if not instinctive. Women are lucky in that regard, when we flirt or try to get a man's attention we don't come across as creepy like some men sometimes do. But I believe making friends is harder for females on the spectr...

Does anybody on the spectrum not have social difficulties? Yes, my brother. He's been recently diagnosed with Asperger's but I don't know how because he doesn't have social difficulties, even as a child he didn't. At school he hung around with the popular kids and he wasn't interested in football o...

I got ganged up on at a volunteer job I used to do. A few of the other women there were a bit cliquey and suddenly had a problem with some of my behaviours. I don't mean I behaved poorly, I just mean they made a meal out of a few minor quirks that could easily have been ignored rather than a reason ...

I've been invited to go to a theme park in the spring but I'm reluctant now to go, even though I've been there before and I love rollercoasters. The last time I went, I kept feeling dizzy and lightheaded each time I stepped off a fast rollercoaster, and I had to keep sitting down to regain my balanc...

I'm glad someone finally took the time to reply. I'm not saying emetophobia is more common for Aspies but sensory issues could play a part in it so I thought some people here would relate. I reckon my emetophobia is the reason I managed to not catch covid (yet). Before covid I took the same precauti...

Just because some people want to live the rest of their lives hiding away from a virus we now have vaccines for, doesn't mean they can insult the rest of us who want life to return to normal.

I've had all three and I'm glad I did. It's easy to feel skeptical about the vaccines but once you've had them you realise it's no different to the flu vaccine, meaning it's not poison or anything and if it gives you side effects like swollen glands or whatever then it means your immune system is re...

I think it does men good to cry. I don't see it as emasculate. In fact, I always say real men cry. I find it beautiful seeing a man crying because his pet died, or because his daughter is getting married, or because his mother is ill, or even just at a sad movie. It shows he cares and is expressing ...

I think whatever the government decides to do won't please everybody. If they lift all restrictions and tell us we all have to learn to live with the virus there are always going to be the overparanoid group that would live the rest of their lives fruitlessly hiding away from a virus we have vaccine...
