You just made me realize something. First, I thought I was the only one to do this. Also, I now realize why I was so obsessed with the movie "The Butterfly Effect" when it first came out. Clearly not the greatest or most gripping film ever made, but the idea really stuck with me for years--The idea ...

I feel nothing most of the time. I rarely ever deal with extremes in emotion. My friends often say, "I've never seen you mad about anything or even excited about anything." I am "mellow" all the damn time. I guess that's the only way I could describe it. I don't even really deal with moderate fluctu...

I don't particularly care to celebrate my birthday. I also don't care for many holidays. New Years, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween. Basically... any holiday whose meaning has either been lost through time or does not have importance to me.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OusYaNWBy08[/youtube] So I was watching this interview with Alex Honnold who is a professional free-solo mountain climber (no ropes). During the course of the interview I started noticing indicators that made me convinced he was on the spectrum. Just the way h...

Right now NTs are favoured so Autism is actually a disadvantage given the circumstances. Autism isn't a next step in evolution but it could be. At the moment it is still a good thing for humans as a whole that Autism exists. At least there is diversity. Agreed. I was only implying that it is possib...

I think the human race is slowly splitting up into neurological "races". Just as the different physical races developed when people lived in specific climates and developed certain body types to best take advantage of those climates, different brains are beginning to develop to take advantage of th...

(I enjoy writing. Consider it fiction, an exaggeration, or whatever. It's my subjective perspective at the moment. I wanted a way to explain how I think to other people/friends so I just started typing. Not sure I'll use this, but it was fun writing it :lol: ) In order to understand autism you reall...

Half girl half boy, huh? I didn't know that may have been related. I also feel that way. And I definitely relate to your worry about being overlooked during diagnosis because you are deceptively good at "appearing" normal. I am also seeking a diagnosis in the coming weeks and am unsure of how to app...

I think the most dangerous conspiracy is the one misleading the masses into believing in a world that doesn't exist. Our lifestyle isn't sustainable. Bailouts are not long-term solutions. The world financial system is hanging is flawed. Wars are not really fought because we love spreading "democracy...

Thanks. I realize I wrote a lot there. It was probably more helpful to me than it was in actually introducing myself. Glad to have been referred to this site. I feel at home! :)

Hi. I am 25 seeking a diagnosis with my PCP after doing much research. But I won't be seeing him for several weeks and am nervous about it. I was amazed at how much I related to everything here. I actually identified with others for once. Even if you're all online people. Here's something I wrote re...
