 Forum: Parents' Discussion   Topic: Does anyone else feel like this about their parents?

Looking back, I feel like my parents didn't really understand the magnitude of what my condition was. They tried a little bit, but I feel like they never really tried to teach me social norms or skills from a cognitive perspective, and when it came to executive functioning related issues, they alway...

In a way I'm actually kind of glad I care about other people and what they think, because if I didn't then I would be a horrible shell of a human being. It's a painful thing to live with and put up with, and I often wish I could shed it, but I know it would be wrong to. It depends on what you mean ...

Alcohol certainly helps my anxiety a lot, as do cigarettes, but marijuana makes it even worse, and emphasizes them beyond oblivion. Maybe I just take too much or something.

For me it means a difficulty to understand social norms, to develop and maintain relationships with people, and to veer away from my restrictive behaviors. Along with those major categories come a whole mess of subcategories.

I'm just catching up on the show now, and I like the interpretation. I like characters like Abed from Community, who show a fully functioning aspie at work and in social situations, but I also like characters like this, who show how difficult it can be for some aspies to be like that. I definitely r...

I think it's accurate as far as the character goes, but I think other movies like Adam are far more detailed. Like, I wouldn't recommend this for someone to understand what Asperger's is, but at the same time, I do think this character is a realistic aspie character. I don't think the movie was as g...

I don't like it when anyone goes around saying they have it just because of a few minor tendencies. I don't think Owl City is diagnosed. I think it's self-diagnosed, and he just seems way too socially competent in interviews and stuff. If he has it, it's either very mild, or he had worked tremendou...

Sorry if my question is offensive, but as a NT who is interested in autism, I am a little puzzled. At first, I thought people with autism didn't know they have problems in communication. But as I log on this forum, I found out that: wow, these are supersuper normal, rational and logistic people! So...

This is probably going to turn into another one of those threads that ends up naming just about every TV character who has ever been in existence, but whatever: Arthur (King of Queens)- generally annoying, turns a lot of people off, unintentionally rude, involves people in conversations they don't c...

I think AS in general has been extremely trivialized by the media and society. People don't know what a serious disorder it is. I can see that concern, yes, and the danger of it being "the trendy thing to have." However, I'm not so sure that most people don't know what a serious disorder it is, or ...

It seems like he has some consistencies with it. None of us know enough about him to say either way. There has to be some reason why a good looking kid was never able to get a date for 22 years. I don't know if NPD is enough to explain it. I think there must have been some sort of unusual social def...
