but on the other hand, sometimes i very much consider what i am going to say and take much effort to post my comment, and i read those threads the next day to see what responses i got, and i am surprised to see that there are many more pages of conversation without any indication that what i said w...

I would never have been diagnosed as having Aspergers if I had not first diagnosed myself. doctors and therapists tend to get stuck on depression and anxiety disorders and seem loathe to explore more deeply, especially when the patient is an adult female with children who presents with extreme anxie...

my NT daughter is the younger child and she constantly offers to help me with things. my older AS son rarely does, but he's set a goal for himself to try to notice a few things he could help with then offer to do them. he even offered to help me unload the dishwasher one day, out of the blue. things...

my daughter is an organizer and I think it's the cutest thing ever. I first caught her organizing her stuffed animals at age 2, first by size, then color, then type. I watched her for a half hour before she noticed me. she has ADHD and her IQ is 130. she's not autistic. I think some people were born...

I think not being able to communicate feelings, thoughts, experiences very well due to autism, particularly in association with overwhelming experiences or trauma, can be so distressing to a mind that it can short circuit or shut down and likewise some people with autism may be prone to catatonia-l...

I can't take SSRIs. I've already had convulsions, tics, weight gain, edema, inability to concentrate, then my GI tract shut down. I ended up having to have all kinds of expensive tests because my doctor refused to believe a low dose could cause the reactions I had, but it turns out yes it was the d...

a lot of my life consists of script-reading and filtering the content in my head and what comes out of my mouth (i.e. how long have I been talking, did I ask the other person how they are or what they think, what kind of response will I get if I say that, etc. etc.) that it's way easier than it used...

once upon a time there was some 8mm film, no sound, but mostly of my younger sister. I only made cameos I think.

I do have a vid clip of my son (recently confirmed AS) at age 2 running in circles in his room.

I'm a bit confused... is the psychoanalyst the therapist? if yes, then I doubt she'd want you to have AS just because she wouldn't be qualified to work with you. psychoanalysis isn't the same as cognitive behavioral therapy, so you'd need to find a different specialist. my therapy plan was far too a...

I have really mixed feelings about this. I don't like teasing much, and really didn't get the point for a long time. then I did, and can even manage to tease other people sometimes but I'm always really afraid of hurting their feelings. in general I'm a really serious person. teasing me will not ins...

But they are outnumbered Exactly, this is the claim I'm seeking sustaining evidence for! Anyone have any pointers? but what would you do with data comparing how many people are in soul-sucking cults. vs. everything else (not a member of anything, or member of supportive group)? if you could gather ...

members were not rewarded for being holy or pure, but for how "spiritually aggressive" they were. What do you mean by "spiritually aggressive"? In my family, which I've discovered lately is very much a cult, you're rewarded with attention, a sense of belonging and warmth the more power (money+conne...

most people don't belong to soul-sucking religions. But what's the evidence that most people don't choose to belong to soul-sucking pyramids (religious, blood families, groups, whatever) in exchange for protection against sudden misfortune? This is what I'm trying to find... you're not going to fin...
