Start taking a few classes and tell people that you are a college student. At age 21 that should not be inordinately unusual anywhere for you to be unemployed while a student. Now paying for the classes is another matter. You might need to take out loans for that. With an education behind you (a deg...

You could have diplomatically deflected what he said, if he was trying to pick you up. Unfortunately, such tact is unavailable to Aspies sometimes, so your reaction might have offended him for that reason. He probably did not accept your obvious rejection of him, which you provided inadequate explan...

This is not the experience I had with my computer science courses so far. I am also a computer science major. (Yet again.) Basically, how I studied was with copious notes of everything the professor said, whether I understood it or not, and drew on the board, whether it looked coherent or not, and b...

Good one. An inkling of me thought that it might be true, even though I was already aware that it is April Fool's; I guess that was just my possible AS deluding me.

You did the right thing. It was good that the manager recognized that it was a problem. I would doubt that the employees will continue make comments like that in the store in the future.

I don't think the article means to disparage people with Asperger's, who obviously can't help their condition. I think it was just to point out the emotional immaturity of upper class, influential males who have been sheltered their entire lives and the consequences of their realization of it. The A...

I though that study was only saying SSRIs didn't help depression. From their release there were always doubts about their efficacy for that problem. I don't think you can say the same for anxiety and OCD. I'm taking Zoloft, an SSRI, for both of those problems, and it is working somewhat well for me....

Don't forget, for a lot of people with AS a few hours of interacting with others is completely exhausting so a 40 hour work week feels like twice that.


More like 40 times that, haha.

What school did you attend? I would rather not say since this is a public forum, but in computer science it was in the Top 100. And why is it you HAVE to attend a TOP level school to be worth, crap? What is it exactly you are asking? No one is saying you have to attend a top level school. Any accre...

The US has one of the worst which is probably why there aren't very many engineering jobs anymore Hmm. Just noticed your little unfair swipe at America's engineering schools, Metal_Man. You are flat out WRONG about this. The engineering schools in the US are TOP NOTCH and have GREAT facilities. I h...

But anyways, now the ANSWERS: 1. Should I stay or go? Atlanta? Go. It's metropolitan, but since it is in the south, it is affordable. In the suburbs there are good public and private schools. Maybe in the inner city too, in the right neighborhoods. There are plenty of good colleges, public, private ...

I have researched Zoloft (sertraline) and several other drugs that work against anxiety and social anxiety extensively before getting on it. I was compulsively obsessive about finding information about a drug to help me with my compulsive obsessiveness. In my research, I found that Zoloft in particu...
