Chewing, people kissing (them yukky wet sound they make), people cleaning their teeth, weeping, pooing and vomiting. Any of that stuff.

Well things haven't been too good at work, due to total inefficiency and useless communication. I email my boss who says complain (knowing as I do that others feel the same). So... I complain. Turns out it has created a whole heap of trouble and all the people that encouraged me to complain and said...

Sales would terrify me. All that interaction with other people, I would be a nervous wreck! I need a quiet environment with little outside noise or disturbance, even a traditional office scares me. I am lucky, I have spent years working up to it but now I work from home, full time in a job that I lo...

I work from home. I am in the UK and I use my skills as an ex-nurse (and later university qualifications) to work as a distance learning tutor. I love my job, I tutor a variety of different courses and it's usually fun to do and I make a decent living wage. Tutoring online is something that is becom...

I have a job where I work from home 100%. I am self employed and provide tutoring services for distance learning. I have been doing this a long time and now have my "own" course that I am responsible for. Now, the company that I contract out to has decided that all meetings will be done by phone con...

I am not monotonal, but I am a 55 year old woman who sounds (I am told) as if I am about 15. Shame the body doesn't follow the voice lol

I agree with Rocket and the universeman. I found out a couple of years ago and, although initially it was a relief it is no longer so. In the long run it has brought me so much stress, I realise a lot of things that I wish I hadn't realised (even though some of them are interesting such as why I am ...

Barnabear, that is an amazing post. Gives me some hope and motivation to do something! Thanks again everyone. I guess we DO need to exert ourselves to get ourselves understood - otherwise we are guilty in a way for letting these kinds of situations perpetuate themselves. My sitting by and doing noth...

Ahh thank you everyone! I wish aspies ruled the world, at least there would be honesty instead of connivance. I apologised only because I thought these people had been my friends and colleagues for five years and I had suddenly been told that they were nervous of me. The last thing I want to do is u...

SHe knows I have Asperger's and she has accused me of all sorts of things, such as saying that the people in the office are nervous of me. ...

BUT, we have to document and reflect on our "journey" and our skills and this is what stumps me. Unfortunately most of the marks are for this, so the...

I'm doing a chemistry MSc and one module that I am having to undertake (endure/tolerate) involves heavy use of reflective journals, skills audits and giving evidence about such things as "why I chose these papers", "how I feel about this, that and the other" etc. Is it because I am an Aspie or is it...
