today I went for a follow up with my dr who understands ASD. I had a new nurse who I had never met, and I did not have a panic attack or obsess over the change, which is something that had happened in the past. So I was happy with myself for being able to observe my feelings about the new nurse with...

I do the bunny ears way too, I did not know it was not how everyone else tied shoelaces until my mother saw my tie my shoes a few months ago and said something about it. What I do now with my casual vans sneakers that I don't have to wear to work is, I take the shoelace, make the bunny ear loop and ...

This sounds somewhat familiar, minus having to worry about looking weird because my family is generally used to me overreacting to everything. is there any way you could take a shower the night before instead of in the morning? I sometimes do that when I know there will be a conflict about what time...

Everything I do or consider doing I process in my brain for a long time. Even if simple decisions are in question, I spend a lot of time processing the available information, pros and cons, etc. It's interfering with my life, I can't seem to decide anything. You know what the problem is? People are...

I did voc rehab, and had negative and positive experiences from it. The negative: my assigned case worker did not understand ASD and did not know what she was talking about in that regard, so I was accepted to the program due to depression and anxiety, they needed quite a bit of action on my part an...

Sorry if this is a silly question, but are you a parent yourself? From your situation it doesn't sound like it (although apologies if I have made incorrect assumptions), but if you aren't I am wondering why you got involved with the parent group? Did you actually check with your therapist that she ...

When you say that you "agreed to it to make him happy" is a big red flag right there. It sounds like he is very obsessed with you, focusing on a future together where he has it all planned and you just fit into whatever he wants to do. Run away! Having dated persons who reacted badly to my suggestin...

It sounds exactly familiar! I lose track or get distracted so easily, even if it two tasks I need to do, I put them in order of which makes logical sense (do this, on the way, followed by this task after) and then I repeat the key words to myself silently or under my breath until I have moved close ...

Hi Sangy, I looked up VR services for your state and found the following link, which will lead you to a form you can fill out and start the process of application. Applications are based on things like your history of mental health and you will need to release your medical records and treatment reco...

Hi, I agree with Cathylynn, there are no favors being done for either of you staying when you are so unhappy. Just because someone loves you doesn't mean you are obligated to stay in a relationship with them. You have awareness of your needs for space, personal time, and pursuing your own activities...

Hello, I need some advice regarding my current situation. My therapist and my behavioural specialist MD both have given me a diagnosis of Aspergers which we have used to move forward in my therapy and treatment for severe depression and anxiety for the past couple of years. It was from their advice ...

Hi Sangy, I can relate to having long periods of unemployment and also to going to school for a field that I have talent in but am unable to actually work in due to the social environments that absolutely drown me. I want to encourage you to hold on hope. It may not be fast, and it may not be an are...

Welcome to Wrong Planet! Always listen to your own experiences. You may walk into a Doctor's office who has LITTLE hands on experience with adults on the spectrum, so their initial resistance or skepticism towards a diagnosis is not about you. You know what you've lived through. Even professionals c...
