Steve223, Back in college, I went through situations similar to what you describe. I only wish someone with ASD had pointed out the possibility to me. I ended up earning my bachelor's in engineering and then going straight into graduate school but I think knowing I had Asperger's would have been a h...

I agree with the responses, I don't believe thinking about murdering will lead to action just like the thoughts of suicide. I think you should possibly use violent video games as a substitute as I heard a friend say an ex-convict was able to use violent video games as a calming method and thus he w...

I agree with Rebel. I have had and do still have the same thoughts. As a younger girl, my thoughts tended more toward "Just how far could I go with this and physically survive?" but I definitely have had thoughts about how many others I could hurt before someone actually tried to stop me. I think th...

The answer to your question about whether the triggers go away is yes and no. I had been away from my abusers for years before I went in to therapy and I still found it helpful to write down notes of what happened to me before each appointment so that I could literally read off of my index cards if ...

Setting boundaries to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable should never ever make people disappointed in you. If someone expresses disappointment in you for protecting yourself, then they are not safe to be around until you feel stronger...or maybe ever. I have had to let lots of people go for ...

Lie easily and without guilt. Not all NTs can do this, but the dangerous ones seem to have the ability. [shudders at the thought] :?

I have ptsd from chronic abuse...my abuse was profound but not sexual in nature. Fortunately, when that type of abuse was tried on me, I did become violent toward my aggressor. He moved on to my younger sister. I feel guilty to this day and it happened 28 years ago. For me, seeing ropes and or water...

While I love the concept, in my opinion, I only see it working under some (preferably all) of these conditions: 1. The game should be first person, or at least have a function that switches between first and third-person. For me, it's easy to observe a conversation because the cues are passing me b...

Wow Taybot97, you are far more mature than most men your age (and women for that matter). You deserve a great partner and I, for one, am confident that you will find one when the time is right. :D

In the event that she does not get in touch with you after the final. I think a simple text message saying "I think we should break up and will assume that we have if I don't hear back from you. Take care." would be appropriate. I would refrain from acting mad or hurt in the event that she really do...

I could be entirely wrong here, but it seems like she's showing a lack of interest. For e.g. "Are you doing anything after the math final?" "idk" If she was interested, she would make an effort to check what she was doing and/or she'd write more in response. Short, vague responses are generally a s...

Stimulant drugs are helpful for me but I don't like them so I resort to the less effective work-arounds as a compromise. Out of a typical eight-hour workday, i probably actually focus on work for only an hour or so. Fortunately I seem to accomplish enough during this time to fulfill my supervisor's ...

She sounds dismissive to me for a neurotypical female. I am an Aspie female and tend to give the "idk" response when I feel like a paramour is simply asking too much of me emotionally.

If she is Aspie like me, then I do not think she sounds dismissive...just a little bit overwhelmed.

Thank you all so much. You have really given me some good insight. Regarding saying "Hi" to strangers, since either the stranger or he is usually walking, or stops briefly, it is easy for him to disengage the eye contact. This is probably why he does it of his own free will. We don't ever force him...
