Ask your professors if they'd be willing to be a reference for you; send them a nice, polite professional e-mail; "My name is John Doe. I was a student in your class during the spring semester of 2010. I really enjoyed your class a great deal. I have recently graduated with a degree in ___________ a...

KLG was probably one those 'popular girls' who emotionally bullied those who were considered low status when she herself was in middle school and high school. Did you see how she asked Zach if the other kids gave him a hard time for hanging out with "defective freak (in KLG's eyes)? I put far more b...

Too disgusting for words...how KLG and their crew treat Zach like a hero and Graham like he doesn't have feelings. They laugh at him multiple times and give Zach the gift basket with all the goodies and make such a f*****g big deal about putting the Cubs Tix in the basket for both of them to go to a...

Homeschooling while socializing with other AS kids and NT kids 4-5 years younger than me. Throughout middle school and high school, I was an outcast, emotionally bullied on a daily basis. Academically, I was about 2 years ahead of my age but socially and emotionally, I was about half my chronologica...

I am attending a group class with five other adults (ranging in age from mid 20s to early 50s, 4 of the other adults ...

I'd like to hear some differing opinions on the subject. I've talked to those who've had positive experiences and felt that it helped them navigate the NT world while still keeping their passions while I've talked to others who've had negative experiences with therapists who tried to take away their...

The article is appalling and a real insult to those kids who were really abused by their parents. Not buying the toys they wanted! Sending a birthday card they didn't like! Telling them to come home at midnight! Sorry but that sounds like normal parenting to me. What about all the grown kids who gre...

If you are uncomfortable with them, don't do it. There are plenty of moderately socially awkward people with AS out there who'd be interested in doing this. My advice is to find some that you are personally comfortable with that may still appear awkward to the general community and tell these two gu...

Different people have different levels of sensitivity and I can see the same post can be perceived by one person as "mild constructive criticism" and another person can perceive the same post as "cyber-bullying." I have been constantly berated by my parents and teachers when I was growing up (back i...

Maybe she has a classic case of PDA- read more here- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pathological_demand_avoidance Of course, you can't diagnose her on-line and of course, I'm not a diagnostician.
