I work in a busy critical care unit. I hear everything. Our machines have alarms, most of them very loud. Phones are ringing all the time. My coworkers talk continuously. I am unable to filter out any noise and earplugs are not an option for me. At the end of my shift I am exhausted. I am very glad ...

Our hospital is the most computerized in the greater Indianapolis area. I don't talk very much and rarely...

I believe in God. I do not believe that the Bible is 100% literal. If it was, I would have to believe in talking snakes, talking donkeys, water coming out of rocks, and global floods. I don't attend church much anymore. I belong to a United Methodist congregation, but they are very conservative. I b...

I can't help thinking that the normal people have hidden agendas, have hidden meanings behind what they say, embrace dishonesty when it benefits them, and expect everyone to understand them. I'm the one with a disorder? I suppose that is why my comments or observations are never appreciated.

I have exactly the same problem. No matter how nicely I try to say something, I am always criticized for being rude. Other people can say what they want, and they are listened to attentively. I gave up talking to most people. I prefer to talk to my dogs. At least they don't nag and criticize. They a...

I have to put items in exactly the same place each time. If they are moved, I have to search the house to find them. I also lose my car all the time. When I leave Wal-Mart, the mall, or a restaurant, I never can remember where I parked the car. It's even worse if I drive another vehicle other than m...
