I wasn't diagnosed until I was 40 years old. I'm super glad I did it. For me, it was a huge relief--finally, I started to make sense to myself. As I learned more about AS, it gave me some perspective on my life.

Hi Everybody When I first joined this forum, there were only about 700 members, but I haven't posted here for several years. Lately I've been feeling like a pretty huge mess and I was wondering if some kind of talking therapy might be helpful. Does anyone have an opinion about that? Also, does anyon...

I have been married for 17 years and have no kids. I tried to talk myself into it for a while, but decided I really prefer the world of grown-ups. Children don't make interesting conversation and taking care of my husband is exhausting enough. I tend to have a lot of anxiety around children and I fe...

I haven't told too many people, but I find that mostly people don't believe me. Like they think I'm making it all up or went to some kind of quack doctor. I was diagnosed as an adult and when I told my sister, she was totally hostile to the idea. Another family member now seems to want to "catch me ...

I hear voices before sleep--random, ordinary conversations that sound exactly like I'm listening in to some stranger's phone call. They are very specific and filled with details--the people who are talking seem to know each other. I never recognize the voices or the situations--it seems to have noth...

Getting diagnosed as an adult was one of the best things I've ever done. For me, it opened up a whole universe of self-knowlege and self-acceptance and I'm much better for it. I didn't get any medication or social services. I haven't told many people about it. It isn't always a happy experience, but...

Girls might make an effort to fit in more than boys do in our culture, too; there seems to be more emphasis put on encouraging boys to be ambitious and encouraging girls to be cooperative... I think it's mostly an issue of more "subtle' expression in many girls, even if they have Asperger's/autism ...

Welcome, Coded! :D Your post was very interesting. It seems like you're onto something. The headphones sound like a good idea, unless your problem is actually caused by the vibration rather than the noise. Could it also be that there is something else screwing up your sleep patterns? Like a breathin...

I have pictures streaming in my head all the time. And I guess there usually are several streams running at the same time--the thing I'm actually focused on as well as a bunch of other stuff. I enjoy it. I never thought about it being "distracting", but I guess it is to some extent. Not to the point...

Roman, You have to settle down . The point is that the example of this other girl, among countless other examples, demonstrate that I have NO CLUE how to do a small talk. Obviously you have no idea how to do small talk. You do "huge talk" instead. You talk more than anyone I've ever seen. :wink: It ...

Right on, Hale Bopp. I like the way you think. :wink: I feel that above and beyond anything Roman said or did, he's inadvertantly giving off a very superior and condecending vibe--like he is so much better than the girl that how dare she not respond. I'm sure that's not his intention, though. And I ...

As a bonafide female, let me give you a girl's perspective... I mean no offense to you. I'm sure you're a really nice guy and like all of us, you're just trying to find a way to fit into the NT world. But I'll tell you straight: Your behavior was frantic, predatory, creepy and obnoxious in the extre...

The weirdest part is how the words do still make sense in a convoluted way, at least sort of. People seem to know what I'm saying, but the way I say it must sound totally insane. It happened when I was talking to my boss recently and he just stared at me like I was from Mars. And that's the problem ...
