Would bruxism (grinding teeth, especially in sleep, probably caused by anxiety?) qualify as a stimming behavior for diagnosis of HFA or Asperger's?

Is bruxism common among people on the spectrum?

My wife's friend told my wife she saw me in public, my wife asked her why didn't you say hi to him. She said I am creepy and scare her, she thinks I am a serial killer because no one can be as CALM and NICE as I am all the time. :( Talk about can't win for losing. No kidding! One time a woman worki...

1. Stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, use of objects, or speech (e.g., simple motor stereotypies, lining up toys or flipping objects, echolalia, idiosyncratic phrases). This is the criteria from DSM 5, but it's not exhaustive. It would be helpful to me to know some real-life examples of this...

Conversation seems to be very fast - especially on TV and in movies... and when talking with people, I have a hard time responding in a quick & witty way... I always feel pressured to give SOME reply quickly, and often feel it was awkward, etc., and then much later I might think of a cool, witty...

I am constantly paranoid about creeping people out. I think it has to do with body language. People have a visceral emotional reaction to some of the things we do (like staring, or invading body space, or avoid eye contact, or not smiling, or being non-verbal). Yes - exactly! I've gotten more and m...

You don't find anything creepy about a stranger telling you he wants to lick you and go inside you and have sex? 8O Also some guy got mad at the train stop because no one had a cell phone on them for him to use to call his girlfriend so he started saying how the world will blow up on us all day and...

Here is what I have perceived as creepy. You're some random person and I don't even know you or we have just met and you're doing these things: Patting my butt Putting your hand on me and rubbing me Making funny sounds at me Excessive swearing Telling me you want to go inside me and lick me down th...

I think yes, we are creepy in the meaning of "sometimes lightly scaring people" and no, its not about male Aspergers. I have been in a normal therapy form as well, because of my depression that got treated. Without my involvement there was a thread, about a woman writing, what kind of "troubles" sh...

I think hating your parents has to do with being abused. Perhaps more aspies are abused by their parents than NT's, but that is the only connection I see with AS. I agree! And my mom was religious & abusive, like yours! Although she wasn't "super-crazy religious" - she was actually "Mainline Pr...

Or specifically your mother?

Did you feel they were neglectful and/or abusive?

(You can answer yes even if you still love them on some level...)

Is this common among people w/ Asperger's or HFA?

What is a creep anyway?

Are we perceived as creeps?

If so, how can we not be creepy?

And does this label only apply to guys? (seems like...)
