For me, it is not a matter of "coping" and feeling anxious.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  It is a matter of knowing when to stop and assimilated what I have learned. It's always so hard to know when to stop. I take breaks when it gets too tough otherwise I can't think straight. But there...

Every time I have to learn sometime it's always new, and new causes me so much pain. I don't know what to do. Like I keep on studying things like programming and other IT-related subjects but no matter how relaxed I am at the start within a few hours I'm totally anxious about it. I keep trying but i...

It happens to me time after time and it makes me worried that people can ready my thoughts. Today a builder is in the house and every time I go through he hits me with some new thing to be worried about. I would rather he just gets on with it. Anyway I walked back through and he said " I don't ...

I struggle when I have to come back to work for the first 2 days. There is literally nothing I can do to make things better. The only thing I can do is talk about it to my employer but it doesn't help that much. I can only think clearly by day 3 and can't get any work done until then. If you have th...

See about an autism support group for adults. You can exchange observations and tips without feeling judged for being different. Incidentally, I found your strong objection to use of the word "normal" off-putting. Do you want to have a meaningful conversation with others here, or do you w...

Anyone who mentions Godel's theorem in a discussion on social skill is strange.

You may continue to have issues with relationships if you consider yourself normal but unable to have a relationship.


Who is "normal" anyway? I don't think anyone is. But we're getting off-topic here.

I think normal people use body language to warn others "not to go there." Most of us don't see those signs so we don't get the warning. Some of us try to compensate by memorizing rules. But, no set of rules is as good as being able to to see the warnings. As an aside, it was proven that n...

So I'm interested in social skills for adults with high functioning autism. I'm not sure I understand what it is I don't understand, I just know that I get confused and say the wrong thing. People get mad at me for seemingly no reason. I know there is a barrier which they attack me if I go beyond it...

You can get "Active Noise Cancelling Headphones, TaoTronics ANC Wired Noise Cancelling Earphones" or similar. As long as it says "Active noise cancelling" then it should do the job, but some art better than others. You can use them without music playing.

Do you mean bouncing your foot up and down as if it's on a spring? It could be a stim.

If not it could be dispraxia related.

Basically, you wanted that diagnosis which led to you being railroaded from a decent job. Why?? Did you think it would give you some sort of special treatment or money at work opposed to the mistreatment you got? I can't fathom why you wanted such a diagnosis and could not let things be. Now it is ...

How and when do you pay? In the city I live in there is an app . The app has a real time countdown timer and reminders. Typically I park in the garage where I pay upon exiting. I do pay with an app and this was part of the problem. It became so routine and easy that I forgot to pay because I was ru...

I think it's nice and I think other people will like it as well (poll would seem to agree with that). I think some other children might feel a little jealous because you have a dog and therefore more attention than them. But there's no need to be jealous of a really difficult condition like autism. ...

These days we've been labelled and I'm keen to reject labelling because it's an artificial division between you and all that is. I'm also finding that we're getting chucked in this bag with gay people, which is annoying as what we need is totally different to some other minority group. IMHO what peo...
