I wish I didn't feel like such a loser for not being able to get a date and a girlfriend for so long. Losers are people who deliberately cause trouble for other people. If your sincere intention is to make someone happy, then you can't be a loser. I understand that sometimes people inadvertently ma...

I thing religion is just the mis-application of social ability. This is not my original idea either. Let me explain. Most people have the ability to infer the intentions of others. This skills helps us learn language when we have to figure out what our caregivers are referring to and mean. This very...

... sometime later you realize just how awkward the whole thing was or you look back over what you say because you have no idea what you were thinking? I'm not sure how to explain it. My thoughts are pretty jumbled at the moment. If said something that didn't make sense, I'd figure out what I meant...

So what did you propose to take up? I suspect maybe you were undecided and your advisor was under pressure to get you declared, so the advisor picked mortuary science as a default thinking you probably wouldn't want to follow through on it and would be motivated to select something else. Have you de...

Hi everyone... I am a law student with aspergers.... Anyway, does anyone know? Like what is it in someone's brain that makes them this way? Is it an an immune system reaction? What do you think? I think that as people evolved and became more intelligent that their brains changed. I think autistics ...

When I was younger I was told that I had an Intilectual Disability (or MR; whatever you want to call it). However, I've now found out that I don't have it. I just have pure autism. However, I also know that my autism used to be more severe as well. I'm wondering is it possible that I did have an ID...

As the person was helping me, they kept telling me to stand up straight, and I tried, but it took a number of times. When finally I did, I ended up losing straight posture after a little while, returning to my usual slumping posture. Eventually, they gave up with me. :oops: . Have you tried squeezi...

Normally when I am in situations like that I just try to stand behind everybody else, so that no one can see me. Then I know nobody can be staring at me at all. :) Yeah, I do sometimes give myself a longer walk round the block so that I get to the bus stop from behind the people waiting, rather tha...

A rose by any other name smells just as sweet. That said, it appears as though there may be a difference in brain functioning, at least as shown on an EEG. Whether that is meaningful or not, I really don't have the background to say. http://vectorblog.org/2013/08/autism-and-aspergers-are-different-a...

Oh, she made tea for her sibling. This is HUGE. :roll: And even at that, they are speculating why she made tea. Maybe having some contraption on her head for that time started her thinking about the machine and what it was doing, and maybe she thought about the tea machine and wanted to use it. I a...

I think it's on track but the article scares me a little. In contrast to other deficit-oriented theories of autism, the Intense World Theory points out that enhanced brain functioning may lie at the heart of autism. <--- This part is surely correct In fact, I think autism is a part of evolution. As ...

This thread reminds me of "the most significant English language play of the 20th century" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waiting_for_Godot Well in that play someone, and not something as here, is supposed to come but never does. Anyway, I liked that play but actually think the stuff people write on t...
