Sorry to hear that, Grealwyn. You doing okay these days?

The thing is, I grew up in a family of smokers. Many of my family smokes. So I am very used to it. It's just the bathroom thing I can't get past.

Matter of fact, I stopped talking for four months straight my Senior year in high school. I had just came to the point where I could no longer emote what was in my head. It became so difficult to express myself that I fell into a deep derpression. And somewhere between being despondant over the inab...

I just have trouble reading expressions on people's faces. I recognize their faces but I just can't glean any clues or cues from their expression.

I just have trouble remembering people's names. I have trouble assigning a name to someone's face.

I will bounce my leg. But not very many people like me doing that. Silently tap my fingers. Fidget with my favorite click pencil. Bob my head getly so no one can see me doing it. Rocking my foot. The list goes on and on... But when I'm at home, I just let it all rip. Taping my finger, rocking, bounc...

When I was a kid, I just wouldn't stop talking. I LOVED to talk endlessly about everything that popped into my mind. A truly endless process... But as I got older, without knowing I had AS, I found out that no one likes a full grown man who won't shut up. So now, here in my mid 30's, I am a very qui...

I went to a Wendy's restraunt that's down the road from me. As you may know, Wendy's is a restraunt that allows smoking in their stores. And before I got anything to eat, I went into the bathroom. And when I opened the door, cigarette smoke practically billowed out of the bathroom. But because I had...

I'd LOVE to move the hell out of this godforsaken s**t hole of a town I live in.

But I can't.

I have to stay here and take care of my elderly father. A responsibility I am honored to undertake. But I hate this town now. I want out. I want to go somewhere else and come alive again.

You know, I just don't even bother trying to tell people what I go through. The truth is, no one cares. The whole entire world only cares about what THEY'RE going through. Not what you're going through. I have to admit that I'm a fraud. Straight up, a lying, decieving fraud. On the inside, I'm me. T...

The sound of birds chirping and the sound and feel of a warm gentle breeze sooths my weary soul. In general, just the sound of nature relaxes me. It can even be the creaking of a tree branch. And as far as the sound of random things that I like, for some reason, I really like the sound of certain ty...

I so dearly appreciate the perspective I have in life now. But I would have to agree with most who say that my childhood, as scary as it was, was the best era so far. Because I was a blissfully unaware kid tripping through life with a rose-colored outlook. I didn't have agreat childhood. It was a sc...

On almost every other board, I go by my age-old net handle "Decompiler."

But when I came to this board, I just wanted to be myself. I wanted to represent me. I mean, just for once in my life, I just wanted to come out from behind my mask.

So I chose my real name as my handle.

I have a much better long-term memory. My short-term memory is wrecked. It's just no good whatsoever.

I can clearly remember things I did in 1977, when I was 5. But I can't remember where I sat my keys down just 10 minutes ago.

I forgot to include the Kerouac side of my family as well. They're French-Canadian as well, I believe. The funny thing about the Audette/Kerouac side of the family is that other than my Audette grandparents, I haven't met a single one of thm ever. I just stay down here in Tennessee with no contact w...

On my mother's side, I have no idea. Whatever heritage the Johnson surname can claim to. My Great Grandmother on the Johnson side was half Cherokee.

Then on my Father's side, the Audette line - French Canadian I believe.

Me, I just like to think of myself as a Honkey mutt.

Psychiatrists and psychologists will run around in circles trying to diagnose someone who, unknown to them, may be an Aspie. And if they can't pinpoint the exact problem, they are likely to give you a greater far-reaching diagnoses that may not actually be an appropriate or desribe what you are suff...

My oldest brother had the same problem when he was younger. Though he seems to have no trouble with milk at all now. So, keep your fingers crossed. In time you may just develop a tolerance.

Or maybe not.
