Sometimes when I am going to say something to someone, usually someone I don't know or don't know well It's like someone hit mute. I mouth the words but there isn't enough breath behind it to make more than a whisper. Usually it's just a "hello" or short response to someone when I am caught off guar...

One, probably only because I am married to her. Other than that I don't have any real close friends, just aquaintences or "people I know"

When I am stressed I have frantic dreams. The dreams aren't always directly related to what I am stressed about, but can be. What is always the same though is that when I wake and go back to sleep I either continue or repeat the dream and I don't feel rested at all. I feel like my brain is trying to...

yes, I remember puking on my plate because my stepmom forced me to eat boiled shrimp. When it burst in my mouth it was nauseating, no one believed me. I can't stand celery or broccoli (unless cooked very soft where the texture changes), onions, bell peppers (really any veggie that is crispy or crunc...

I go blank on words all the time, usually mid conversation. I have to describe what I am talking about until someone fills in the word for me or it pops in my head, so annoying! I also am horrible with names, I recognize faces, and sometimes where I know them from, but quite often I am like, "where ...

I would have to say Light sensitivity as I always use indirect lighting at home and keep things pretty dark. When my wife uses the laptop she leaves the screen on full brightness and I feel like it is melting my eyes. I also use a backlight behind my TV (also known as a bias light), this keeps your ...

I smile and it looks genuine for about 2-3 seconds and then goes all cheezy looking. I have to think of something funny and make myself laugh or just not try to smile until right before a photo is snapped. I hate group photos where people are taking pictures with 3-4 cameras because I can't time it ...

As an ICU Nurse I see patients suffering and I see worried family members and I have no problems empathizing. In fact being a new nurse I have a lot more empathy than most of my NT coworkers (It seems cold indifference is a coping mechanism for working with critically ill patients). I think I have n...

As an adult aspie two things trigger me to meltdown, my wife springing "plans" on me last minute (less than 24 hour notice), and dealing mith my aspie child. I am not sure if he melts down and it triggers me to meltdown or if I blow my top first because he is difficult and it triggers him. I think i...
