I got to my 40's before anyone suspected anything. I think it was because I was always happier on my own. I never tried to socialise any more than I had to. My parents are quite asocial as well and I think that helped hide things. I am sure if I'd been dragged out to social functions and family gath...

The first few lots were OK, but really struggled with the latter ones.

Some of what youre saying sounds like the opposite of autistic. Austistics are supposed to get overwhelmed by sensory overload in public places, and overloaded by conversations in parties, and to not be able to follow conversations. NT musicians can zero in on the person playing the instrument they...

I think you're right. The music was designed for us, we have good hearing and on top of that we were able to perceive harmonic combinations through the systematization. I suspect singer Kane Strang is an asperger, listen to his song "Oh So You're Off I See". So youre saying that music was...

If anyone has an hour to spare try this single track Album....... Certainly tests your "hearing", or more properly "listening" capability.

The best thing to do....is to do your job to the best of your ability. And don't do other people's jobs (I'm definitely not saying that you're doing that. Hopefully, you are assigned a certain task to do alone, and other people are assigned certain tasks to do alone. There is too much emphasis on &...

I've had two jobs. The first was working in a small shop in the warehouse, occasionally working on the shop floor. There were about 15-20 people there and we were all different ages, creeds, race, background etc. My second job was in a factory and I was there for a long time. If I was in a role that...

Before I left my job I suspect that many managers thought I was demanding to be treated differently. The irony was, and it was their loss really, that I was demanding to be treated the same. If my colleague has to do 10x units of work please may I have 10x units of work and not the 5x that I am bein...

Stories/Pictures of "Spontaneous Human Combustion" in those Mystery and Unexplained books always used to freak me out as a kid. Still gives me the heeby-jeebies a bit now.

....attitude.... ....my argument.... Bosses don't like either of those. This may help. It may not. I often found the best way to de-escalate a potential argument that is bubbling up is to start agreeing with the other person. You may be right in your opinion, but sometimes it is more prudent not to...

It could be they are wording their concerns in a vague manner and it is not that you are raising your voice per se, but that you are answering them back.

Is it the case that they are asking you to do something and you are saying that you "can't do it because of....."

I've started being a lot more defensive in my driving. There are so many impatient people about, more so than ever before. I mean the other day I was driving up the left hand lane of a two lane slip road accelerating upto 50mph, which is the speedlimit of the road at the top. I was signaling right....

There is an old saying "Practice makes perfect". The more you drive the more natural driving becomes. I have driven over a million miles in my lifetime and it is very natural and not very stressful. As an Aspie I generally apply a couple rules. 1. I always put my full focus on driving. I ...

Drive sensibly, but don't dawdle. Leave your self plenty of room in front, but not so much that every one pulls out of side streets on you. Don't drive into closing gaps, and make sure if you are driving into a constricted space you have room to escape to if needed. On your test especially - make th...

Last year I left my job because the atmosphere had become hostile to me. I needed to get away from the place. So in the meantime I've kept busy with various projects at home. Recently I been starting to look for a job and yesterday it dawned on me that I have not been the person I was at work the wh...
