Sounds like a good approach. Thanks. If this works out I'll let you know.

Here's a crazy situation. (Anyone care to comment?) A friend found a little Acer netbook at a yard sale. TEN dollars, but no operating system. He asked for my help, and a few hours later we had Windows 10 installed, and the little thing ran GREAT. (4 core 1.2ghz processor!) Recently I managed to fin...

I've only read into your second paragraph... How do you know you have no Autistic symptoms like sensory problems? Have you ever lived in an NT's body and experienced THEIR senses? You're an Aspie. Some of your autistic symptoms may be less severe than other Autistics, but they may be there just the ...

Don't worry about your cousins. 1) They're inexperienced punks who try to torture and pick on someone who they know has a disability. Worse, a disabled family member. These are the types who grow up to be slugs, possibly facing time in prison. Don't worry about being left out by them. It's likely go...

I'm a little confused on why you're posting here. You come to this website, yet it seems you disagree with the idea that you're on the Autism Spectrum... And yet there are professionals who think you are. Is there a problem with this? Why do you have difficulty accepting the idea that you're Autisti...

I'm tempted to copy and paste this thread into a word processor, print it out, and give them a copy.

It happened again. The other day I posted here about someone who, hearing I'm on the spectrum, said "I have a relative who says autism is being over-diagnosed." Yeah, so helpful and understanding. Today, someone else asked me "Just what does 'autism' mean?" I explained to them th...

Just say you were not one of the people who were "overdiagnosed." Just say that being on the Spectrum really isn't "a walk in the park." That you didn't feel a desire to get diagnosed.....that you were diagnosed on the Spectrum for a good reason; it wasn't something frivolous. T...

Anyone have any suggestions on what I might say to this "well-meaning" person?

The other day I told someone I was on the spectrum. Their reaction was to say a relative of theirs (whose background I don't know) believes there's a tendency to "over-diagnose autism". (I suspect that was said because I'm high functioning.) I didn't say anything. I'm still trying to figur...

I don't use Windows 10, but maybe I can help? I don't know what "Night Light" mode is, is it just a lower brightness setting? Can you not lower the brightness on the monitor itself? I know that's not super helpful, because you should still be able to change your resolution settings, and I...

Drivers typically have to be written for every new operating system.Visit the manufacturer's web site to download new drivers for Windows 10. Covered. Please see the above sentence- "I've poked around on the Lenovo website looking for drivers, but for this monitor they don't even list Windows ...

On my older computer, the monitor works fine. The computer shows a number of screen resolution settings to choose from, and the "Night light" setting is there like it always has been, despite this week's update to Windows 10 version 1809. Thing is, the computer is getting old, and I've jus...

If I understand right, the puzzle piece was "invented" as a symbol for autism by Autism Speaks, which many feel has had too much to say on our behalf without checking with us. I've been looking at some t-shirts available online that say things like "I'm not broken. I'm autistic."...
