Your first aproach was correct. "I am fine, thank you". From them you should aboid eye contact or smiling (any kind of contact she might use to stick around). If she tries to speak to you again you should interrupt her and say "I said I'm fine, thank you. I really need to be alone right now". I thin...

I have no idea why people will delete you. The people I have deleted from my account is because we are no longer friends or because I am not interested in what they post anymore. If you want you can add me and I can check your wallposts. My fb is ilka.zapata. Send me a message first to know its you.

Hi Franma. Think you've done pretty good for an undiagnosed Aspie. I am sure you son will do great, too. Best wishes.

My 11-years-old Aspie LOVES gum. To the point I had to prohibit it to her, because she would stay all day chewing the same piece of gum, and it started being a problem for her teeth. She only likes mint.

I can only speak for myself. When I flip out is because I cannot believe my Aspies are not doing that on purpose. I just had a fight with my daugther. I told her she had to do 5 pages of homework and then she will be able to play in the computer. I go check and she is in the computer chatting with a...

You are just a very angry person. You focus on the negative instead of the positive. If you were NT you would continue feeling the same. Have you ever heard of depression? They feel the are worth nothing, too. I know a lot of NTs who live misserable lifes and feel they do not belong. Your syndrome d...

Every time my little Aspie call someone stupid because she/he should know that, I ask her something I know she does not know, and ask her if I should call "her" stupid. I find really anoying that Aspie tendency to call people stupid. My husband and child both do that. Yes. I do know your IQ is usual...

I understand what you are going through. I only have one 11-years-old Aspie girl and sometimes I feel it's overwhelming (and I have a husband to rely on). You have three, are on your own, and with sensory issues on top of it!! ! I agree with "DW_a_mom". You should talk to your doctor and try to get ...

I think you are putting to much thinking into it. Why did you open a FB account, to start with? Many people see FB as a popularity contest. I think af FB as a way to keep in touch with people it's very hard for me to see otherwise. I just post things I like: movie reviews, articles, recipes, picture...

If your friend told you that I can assume you are going out with a girl but you have not told her yet that you like her. "The move" means different things in different contexts. To "make the move" is going forward with the relationship, to the next level. So that could mean tell her you like her, ki...

I imagine you should have a lovely family. I left my parent's house at 23 because I could not stand them anymore. Everybody is different. Just take into consideration that being independent is something you have to learn (just like everything else). And it takes some time. If you wait 'til your 30s ...

Maybe they were not trying to bother you. I think they actually were trying to make you feel better. It is a very fair question: "what is normal!?" When people say that they are usually referring to the fact that there is no such thing as "normal". Everybody is different in his/her own way, so such ...

I honestly do not keep a track, but I would say I usually get a cold about once a year, but really mild, I even continue going to work. My daughter is like me (I think she is stronger than me). She almost never gets sick (less than once a year - as I am not concern about that I REALLY do not keep tr...

I felt the same way when I was 16. I felt everybody in my classroom had someone (actually not everybody had boyfriend/girlfriend, but I felt that way - I think it was my mind playing tricks on me). Then I decided to have a boyfriend just to be like everybody else. I ended up hooking up with the next...
