i'm not saying it's wrong, but it seems like a pointlessly negative thing to get hung up on or worry about that can't really help you. maybe imagine being in a relationship with a person you hated or that hated you. imagine being in a relationship with someone abusing you. imagine being in a relatio...

the actual hug, i like. it's more the processing the different timings and firmness people expect in reciprocation gets stressful, like a pop quiz. like, some people will do almost more like a chest bump where you happen to pat their back or conversely if they do longer hugs if you stop before they ...

why some people can drive and listen to the radio (sometimes unbearably loud) at the same time is beyond my comprehension! :? that's the only time i've been able to do it. loud music i like helps me focus. also, it has to be a night and on the freeway. for me it's like the worst of every single sen...

being unhappy and depressed is gift. it's your brain telling you that your duty in life now is in being personally fulfilled and to forget the rest. you are lucky to experience it while young because you have much more strength, energy and time to figure out what being personally fulfilled means to ...

(mostly due to social issues and the fact that I'm terribly afraid of making mistakes ) i can relate to that, i think being afraid of making mistakes or being perceived as "overly sensitive" prevented me from "acting out" in a manner that would've gotten me noticed and help earlier in life. i didn'...

yeah, i was thinking along those lines too. my thinking was that the ASD brain maybe uses the conscious brain to process information that is typically unconscious that other people get to choose more when to think about it- and that part of the overwhelm happens because all that subconscious stuff i...

Whoah, WHOAH, Dan_Undiagnosed! "Who would join the military and police?" Seriously? I can understand not liking police: Some of them are on the take, especially near the mexican border.

Aspies can be manipulative. How well they can manipulate is another story.

the "entitled to sex" "meme" is the flip side / response to the "she was asking for it" "meme", i think. if you look at the statistics on rape, entitlement is unfortunately alive and well. i feel people are justified in being wary of what they perceive to be expressions of entitlement because entitl...

i think it probably is mostly more awareness. - but the question is why more awareness. :) i think in part it could be that there are less avenues for people with ASD to "fit in" to society. if you think about ASD as a processing disorder and how coping methods for sorting information appear in diff...

Humans evolved to comprehend matters of the Earth , because our survival depends on it. Equipped with only five senses and incredibly limited brains, we're not supposed to make sense of everything in the Universe.
