Hi guys, I'm half looking for advice and half looking for a safe place to vent where I know I won't be judged. This whole month has been relatively stressful for me and I feel as though I'm losing my ability to function as not only how others my age are, but in comparison to how I normally do. The t...

I've only read the OP, just disclosing that first. I would say this is not a guy you should wish to remain with for your own long-term mental health if he's not willing to work on this. Using AS as an excuse is BS and I'm here to tell you that I believe that in a lot of situations where people put t...

No, because I was tired of them telling me how I feel and that I'm in denial about things when I'm more aware than I tend to unintentionally lead people to believe.

I tend to lose my full grasp on reality. Not in a mentally/emotionally unstable sort of way, but I just get so wrapped up in stories I create and my fantasy world in my mind that I forget that it isn't the truth. Sometimes I'll unintentionally manipulate situations in ways that aren't appropriate in...

Yep, you're not alone! I do have one interest that I enjoy a fair bit, but it's not that consuming and I really don't think it fits the standards of a "special interest". I never really had anything I was really into as a child, either. The interest that I have now that is as close to a special inte...

Planning to have children is an entirely selfish thing (not judging as it's only natural, just saying) followed by a lifetime of general selflessness in order to be a "successful" parent. I do not believe I'd be able to commit to a minimum of 18 years to ensure the well-being of a child as I'm quite...

Makes me feel nauseous, bloated, sleepy, and I start to have trouble taking full breaths. Sometimes it makes me anxious, but not always. I react similarly to too much chocolate or other sweets.

They have romantic interest in you as well = romantic persistence The do not wish you have a romantic relationship with you on any level = creepiness I believe it's that simple as there have been many things my boyfriend has said and done during and before our relationship that I know I'd be mortifi...

I do not believe I have ever info dumped, but I'm pretty sure that I know what you're referring to as my AS boyfriend does it often. Has anybody else reading also never done this? Is it uncommon for somebody on the spectrum to not have? I know that when it comes to me and my special interests, I do ...

At the risk of offending somebody, I personally do not see how they are comparable. The brain is an organ just like any other. It makes no sense to treat mental illness as a question of willpower. Maybe not, but I also fail to see how it makes sense to compare somebody who is depressed and not gett...

When I disconnect and go mute, I'm still listening to everything being said. Sometimes I'll feel like responding if somebody is speaking directly to me or trying to "pull me out of it", but most of the time I'm just listening and I rarely have the power to respond. Or sometimes I do eventually respo...
