Last night. I was walking along the edge of a road which ran by a wood. I had a sense that this wasn’t safe. A motorcyclist swerved when passing me and hit another motorcycle head on. Because of the wreckage in the road another two motorcycles hit each other side on, followed immediately by two more...

I love cats, but they steal your heart and break it when they go. The loss of a loved pet can be as - sometimes more - painful than the loss of a relative. X

-5 The sadness will pass. It always does, eventually. It's just that at 58 I'm going through a very difficult time with the husband (and children) I never expected to have - and it's at times like this that I selfishly long to also have the support of a friend. A case of 'the more you have the more ...

At 20 it didn't occur to me that my death would have an impact on anyone else. There were several occasions during my teens and twenties when suicide seemed a far more attractive option than living. If I had chosen that option I would have deprived myself of what I have, in my fifties, today. A husb...

Not sure if this is helpful, but my Father used to stuff a soapy flannel in my mouth if I used anything approaching a profanity or blasphemy. I've invented my own swear word, and when I want to scream something abusive I say this word. It offends no-one if I say it (? What language is she speaking?!...

Thank you for your positive and supportive comment JKT. My husband is now home and acting as if all is well. I'm feeling much better; especially as my youngest daughter (14) has just told me I'm 'the best Mum ever' (and I worry like mad about my parenting skills!). She says it's 'not one thing, but ...

-8. After 20 years of marriage I remain unable to put my feelings into words that my husband will not misinterpret. I tried to explain I was missing him while he's away on a business trip. He's now really p*ssed off with me for 'finding fault and having no empathy'. The saddest thing is I cannot wor...

I'm AS, he's NT: which is why I'm on this forum and he's never set foot in it and is never likely to. I know you asked for the NT's perspective on an AS/NT partnership but my husband doesn't visit this site. Been together for 19 years, 3 kids together, plus 2 from his previous marriage to an NT. Our...

I find it a lot easier to be friends with NT men. They tend to say what they think (no reading between the lines to negotiate) and don't expect me to want to chat about tv programmes, fashion, celebrities, makeup etc - all topics on which I'm clueless. Disclaimer: I live in a remote rural area, and ...

Desperately alone, rather than lonely, at times. Married, with children, despite all the odds. Tonight my husband told me he 'loves the packaging, but what's inside is really hard to deal with a lot of the time'. I don't think I've ever felt more alone than tonight.

During the past year I feel as if I've been to Hell and back, and there have been several occasions when I've considered suicide as the only practical solution to resolving my problems. The reason I'm still alive is that each time I've become so desperate that life appears intolerable, I have reason...

I'm the one with Asperger's, my daughter is NT.

Yesterday she decided it was time to teach me how to hug someone properly, as in her words, 'When someone hugs you it's supposed to feel like they're wrapping you up in warmth and love, not like you're being restrained!! !'

Purchase, you are not alone. There are many, many people who are struggling to make sense out of a world which seems to make no sense, and to empathize with people who seem to show no empathy. It is terrifying to be in that dark, lonely place that the mind takes you, and frustrating when nobody appe...

Buzzing: insect, mechanical, electrical - whatever the source it drives me insane.

Dogs barking.

Slurpy/smacking eating/drinking noises.

Men with high-pitched voices.

Anything that whines.

A shared Aspie moment, really. My NT husband was trying to teach our AS son to play cricket. I was watching. My husband's instruction to my son was: 'Now, just watch the ball' as he bowled. My son watched it. I watched it. We both watched as the ball sailed through the air past my son's cricket bat,...
