Death Cab for Cutie has a song called A Lack of Color, and one stanza stands out to me especially as relating to aspie/autie relationships: "If you feel discouraged That there's a lack of color here Please don't worry lover It's really bursting at the seams For absorbing everything The spectrum's A ...

I definitely know how you feel. I tried to break the habit once, but to no avail. I still have my hands in my pockets all the time because it feels better to me than having my hands just hanging there at my sides. My pockets are like home for my hands; it's where they go when idle :lol:

There will never be a cure; it is not a disease.

I can definitely understand them, but for me the problem is performing them myself. I can read people like books, but I cannot write my own book, if you will. I have little to no facial expression or physical gestures. But when I do make a gesture, it is usually habitual and used to convey emotion, ...

I hate exercise too. It's very monotonous for me, and I never feel good afterward. I do not like the feeling it gives me. As for team sports, I am far too clumsy for that sort of thing, plus the interdependence in a team sport makes it an ordeal for me. And that is why I partake in little to no phys...

The other morning, a teacher was walking down the hall and I already had in my head "Hey, good morning," but when he got there he said "How are you?" and I still ended up saying, "Hey, good morning!" and he just gave me a strange look."
Situations like that seem to happen regularly :P

Irlen Syndrome?

I looked it up and that definitely could be it. I constantly have to reread to comprehend books because I skip words and lose my place. Thanks!

Okay so I could swear I had heard of a condition like dyslexia where you have trouble reading lines properly in books. Like you lose your place easily or skip lines and your eyes can't really track properly. I could swear I'd read this as an AS trait and there was an actual name for it. I'm trying t...

Not being able to 'block-out' or 'tune out surroundings' is supposed to be one of the common things for AS. I usually find myself reading in public only to find I have to re-read an entire page as I was too distracted to actually 'process' what I read. Even little things get too distracting when re...

I've asked a lot of people how on earth they read in a public place, and they always tell me they tune out everyone else. But I seem to have a problem with filtering out background noise. I can't read if someone or something is making noise, like any whatsoever. So I usually can't read if it's not i...

I guess it can be related to AS. I certainly dislike small talk because it's usually not about anything important or worthwhile. I don't engage usually :P When a friend of my parents comes over and starts to engage in small talk, they'll ask how I am and I'll simply state, "Good." and walk away... I...

This is the thing that frustrates me most about certain people around me. Whenever I tell people that summer weather depresses me, or that I hate sports or I don't want to go outside, I'm always looked at as weird, or the odd one out. But really it's just my preference! Summer brings this to light t...

I showed my NT friend a song and she complained that the recording was bad and she couldn't hear the lyrics. So I was wondering, does anyone else not hear lyrics, but rather just noise? I always just hear a voice. Just a sound. I never hear words in a song, just the song itself, if that makes any se...

i still do... I usually just leave mine in a double knot and slip them on and off because I'm so slow at it. I'm too ashamed to tie them in public :P
