"Elizabeth from Knoxville" must be closely related to Crystal Minton, the woman who cried about her struggles during the trump-tantrum known as the federal shutdown of 2018/2019, "I voted for him (Trump), and he's the one who's doing this. I thought he was going to do good things. He'...

I usually remember things once I learn them. I occasionally do this with passwords/passcodes, especially if they're just numbers. I might remember the order to hit the keys but be unable to type the numbers on a keyboard with a different layout. This mainly happened with my lunch code at school. I ...

I'm so sorry your parents don't understand, dragons. FWIW, I believe you. Please consider me a gladly receptive audience of your writings! (No pressure, though.) This made me thinking about the differences of me and you Kim. I wouldn't even care about if sombody shows any empathy regarding my feeli...

I have very similar problems (also probably level 2, to the best of my knowledge I wasn’t given a number at diagnosis, though). There are two kinds of inability to speak that I experience. One is where I know exactly what I want to say but no matter how hard I try, my vocal cords will not respond. ...

This is an area where I as a person on the spectrum have trouble understanding non-spectrum people. Perhaps a good way to think of someone like this is as a wild, predatory, and less-than-social animal acting in their own interests rather than as a supposedly civilized human being with a sense of f...

Here in the 'Social Skills and Making Friends' forum, I've advocated friendships with NTs who are receptive to further understanding HFA. These can include NTs who've had some types of professional experience with HFA colleagues/clientele. From my own personal experiences, the potential of such fri...

It seems like the 1%'s own Frankenstein's Monster got off its leash and now they have to go catch it before and ravages their own yard. So sad. Why don't they just step aside and let the people handle him. These as*holes need to stop pretending they had no role in enabling this BS with their vast p...

I'm so sorry, Joe. I don't have any additional advice to offer but I can relate to your pain and frustration. I had to work under someone who absolutely hated me, or at least seemed to. She would micromanage me incessantly (I HATE that) despite the fact that I had 25 years more experience than she, ...

One word of caution re: body language. Don't mimic someone else's body language too much; it could make them feel self-conscious or as if they're being mocked. I think it's better to think of your body language as "blending" with theirs.

I would be perfectly happy if we didn't force kids to recite it every day--or ever! IMO there was no need to insert "Under God," (just another score for the thumpers) and either way, there's a certain air of brain-washing to it. I went along with it as a kid and didn't much care one way or...

This girl was emotionally bullying you, the other girls saw that, and were naturally afraid of becoming targets, too. It can be a little easier to defend yourself from a physical bully--unless they ambush you--but an emotional bully can strike at any time, with or without words, in front of you or b...

I would say just try and not overthink it too much and look on the bright side. Maybe you raised awareness that you shouldn't be ashamed of being on the spectrum. Being confident and telling someone of being on the spectrum should bring a lot of thinking into that class, maybe someone else has a di...

I have come across this with an upper manager at my work. The couple of times I’ve met with her she has mentioned the spectrum in passing remarks as if she’s fishing for a reaction or disclosure. I have not disclosed my Aspie reality to my employers but I’m sure it shows up at times. It's possible-...
