Yes, even at age 47 I take things literally most of the time. I find the work place very confusing most of the time. People are laughing at things and I have no idea what they are talking about. Some guy said he went home every night and kicked the dog that waiting at his door step. I have no idea w...

I can't see how someone could fake either one. In order to be diagnosed with it a family member has to recall your childhood. If you were not either it would be obvious based on those facts.

People tell me I look mad most of the time. I'm mostly sad at all times.

All my life I have never fit in. Not even in my own family. I have always been on the outside looking in. There were times I thought I fit in only later to realize I did not. I have worked at my job almost a year now and still feel like an outsider. My boss even talks to me as if I'm not part of his...

I was underweight as a child but now I'm overweight. I have allot of food issues. When I was 16 I would only eat green beans. Now I will not eat any animal muscle or any part of an animal. I like sweets and pasta, so I guess that's why my weight is higher than recommended.

Most, but not all. I have them when the noise levels and people get too loud. I flipped out and had to put noise cancellation ear muffs on at work when a technician decided to start whistling non-stop. The added stimulation on top of the normal machine noises was too much for me. Not to mention just...

My brother rejected my diagnosed years ago and says I'm just crazy like the rest of our family. My co worker says he is just being over critical of me because his life is worse than mine. He was in prison for 14 yrs and now lives with his wife in a motorhome. She said he is jealous that I a person w...

Yes, I'm way too intense. I talk about personal issues too much, people tell me I'm giving them way too much information.

I'm more masculine and have dated men and woman. My longest relationship was with a male and we did not engage in sexual activities until the last year. We were comfortable just hugging and cuddling. Once we engaged in sexually activities our relationship eroded and we grew apart. We are still frien...

I'm now almost 47 years old and find that I'm almost completely isolated. I live alone with 1 dog and 3 cats. I had no children and have 1 brother who is mean toward me and both of my parents have passed. I have maybe 1 friend that actually does things with me sometimes. I do have a job as a digital...

I work Monday thru Friday. I feel over stimulated by the time I get home. I avoid human contact other than a phone call to my mother. I'm so exhausted that I pretty much meltdown and stay in my house until I have to return to work in the morning. I operate machines and have more then I would like co...

Ear plugs are great! My problem with them is that they cause ear infections. One has to make sure they are cleaned well after every use or a new clean pair is used.

I've been made redundant six times in a row and have had around twenty jobs in my life. I'm lucky that I now seem to have a job that ideally suits my strengths and takes into account my weaknesses. I do understand how debilitating losing so many jobs is (I felt truly worthless) but all I can say is...
