No worries and thank you for a interesting exchange. Most Aspergers on this forum last 2 replies with me before the ADHD kicks in and they get disinterested in the conversation. My husband has ADHD so I'm pretty used to that communication style having lived with it for many years. :) I know that I ...

They would if they weren't able to fully grasp the concept that others can have information and POV that they don't. Kinda like the kid that plays hide and seek and thinks that if they can't see the other kids, then the other kids can't see them. I remember thinking that when I was a child. I read ...

Cyberdad: I hate to correct you, but Tony Attwood's sister in law is autistic, he references her in a few scenarios in one of his new books. I do agree however that they are getting a slightly incorrect view of autistics in general. Especially Simon Baron-Cohen, the things I've read from him kind o...

Thanks for your opinions everyone. I guess this is one of those subjects where there is still much to sorted and ideas and opinions differ greatly. I still am in agreement with SBC in that autistic people have issues with affective empathy, but perhaps have an excess of sympathy. I've witnessed this...

It was a very recent exchange. It was posted last night. Here's the entire exchange : Simon Baron-Cohen Replies to Rachel Cohen-Rottenberg So far, I'm in agreement with everyone who has posted so far, which is unexpected considering what I've ran into elsewhere.

A friend of mine has made a BLOG ENTRY on Simon Baron-Cohen's response to critics to his empathy research in regards to autism. I'm curious what others on the spectrum think. Do you think it's the term 'empathy' that is under attack? Would you be more willing to accept his findings if he changed the...

It sounds to me as if part of the problem is that you have asked him to change his behavior (which is achievable) and he has asked you to change your emotions, which is not possible for you to do. Perhaps if he is able to re-phrase his needs into achievable actions it could help - for example if he...

I agree that I need to trust him more in general and that I need to let go of some of my control. Trying to control my anxiety with controlling my environment only breeds more anxiety. As far as who is more 'sound' at the moment, I don't think one is any better than the other. We don't fight about d...

Thanks Hartzofspace. I do see a lot of what you said in my relationship. I don't think he'll go for counseling. He feels that he's done enough changing and that it's my turn to change like I said I would. I was sharing e-mails with him between my therapist and I about our relationship in hopes that ...

I'm not really angry very often. I'd say maybe irritable and unable to express emotions in a positive way. My husband says that he wants me to 'project happiness' that he can feel. I have a hard time doing that. I don't necessarily smile when I am happy, or all the other cues that most people put ou...

I'm not sure if I'm making this post for support, advice, or what exactly. I really am at a loss ATM. I chose to post in this forum because I thought maybe some of the members might have been there, done that and have some insight to offer. Anyway.... My marriage of 13 yrs (together for 14) is reall...
