To answer my own question I can hear music in my head exactly as heard on the CD but might struggle with the words unless I know them really well (but then I prefer instrumental music anyway). I can also tell if a song is varied from the original - eg a live version over a studio version - and can r...

Can you recall music in your head? How does it play out in your mind?

Just the musical tune (i.e. you hum it in your head)
Just the words (but no music)
Everything as exactly heard on the CD/download

I've noticed I've been doing that of late when I've been reading in the evenings. I just find that I have to stop and do something else for a while - usually just sit and think. I know weekend mornings of late can be slow to get going unless I've made a plan for what I am going to do the previous ev...

Agreed!! I find whispering is very, very irritating. Another possibly related source of irritation for me is when someone comes in late to a lecture or performance, and adopts a rather ridiculous ape-like gait as they walk across in front of the audience, as if they think they have made themselves ...

You could try writing them down on paper. That sometimes works to get them out of your system. You don't need to show the papers to any one.

I always wear the same style & colour of shirt and trousers. It is hard for me to have the confidence to wear something I don't normally wear. I find it uncomfortable [to be seen] to change what I am wearing during the day to reflect the current weather conditions. [particularly going from warm ...

I struggle to hear people talking to me in noisy environments because I don't filter out the background noise very well (if at all). My Dx was only made last year and previously I always thought I was going deaf, despite the most recent (maybe 6 years ago) hearing test being passed with flying colou...

Not posted on here much but could really do with people opinions and/or advice. I am currently waiting on assesment for ASD. I have suspected it for quite a few years but not done anything about it until recently. Now is it just me or was that unusually quick? Like not even 1 month. Not complaining...

I can remember dipping my finger into my Dad's home made larger when I was very young and hating the taste. I will have had communion wine at church for a time (late 80s). No idea how much alcohol is in that - they don't tend to want a tipsy congregation, apart from the fact you barely have any - ju...

Those topics are lost because either the author gave up or people missed them, or people didn't feel they could add anything significant. I don't know why you're so concerned by it. I don't think anybody else cares, in fact it annoys people when threads get necroed. There is nothing worse (on any f...

a girl handed me a note at work a few days ago, and she handed it to me in an orientation where it was upright to her, but upside down to me. without turning the paper around to read it, i claimed that if she wanted me to read it she should not have typed it upside down. There is a photocopier at w...

Assuming you are in the UK there are a number of charities that do assessments and diagnosises. Google your county and "autism centre" (or services or charity) if the first comes up blank. If you can go through your GP first it will be free on the NHS, but it can take a while - maybe six m...

...... If it were me, I'd write them a letter detailing my frustrations with the situation. Letters allow you to say exactly what you need to, are easier than trying to verbalise it and they also allow the recipient to read it and formulate a response at their own pace. I've found it really useful ...
