I have this problem, too. I recently discovered scrubs! The brand "Koi" makes scrub bottoms that are fairly stylish and very comfortable. I stocked up on them.

"Autism is so over-diagnosed. You probably don't even have it." After all, you're obviously qualified to dismiss my diagnosis despite lacking any qualifications, being woefully ignorant, and having been in my presence for only about 15 minutes.

I reckon that if their colleagues all want to have a grand time buying each other doughnuts on a rota system, then fine.... but why on earth should the OP have to deal with that kind of social palaver just to work at some place ? It's not part of the job description I assume (or if it is, then that...

I can't eat gluten-containing foods, so I understand this. In one way I'm glad that gluten-free is becoming popular (more options), but in another way I'm annoyed because people think it's just a fad...it's not for me! 1) Others see me as a burden when it comes to meal selection. I think they feel y...

Absolutely true with me. "Not quite feminine and not quite masculine" just about covers it. :)

I've got bipolar II, and my experiences don't sound like yours at all. Of course, everything is relative and I'm not a doctor, but getting a second opinion sounds like a good idea to me. I think most of my problems are due to Asperger's , but the bipolar exacerbates them and creates a disruptive (an...

I got 8% neurotypical. This is why I get so confused when people say things like, "Oh you seem so normal!" I'm starting to get an inflated view of my acting skills...

My mom's dad was 55 when she was born. I'd also like to see the study.

The antidepressants and mood stabilizers I've tried include Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac, Wellbutrin, Paxil, Remeron, Lexapro, Effexor, Lamictal, and Abilify (and Tenex for my tics). I still love my beer and wine, and haven't noticed any differences between the various medications, or between being medica...

Yes. This happens very often. However, I'm a teacher; therefore, I'm expected to use academic language. Because I'm a teacher (and the mother of a 5-year-old), I've also developed a habit of rephrasing what I say in simpler terms immediately after speaking.

I do not get along with Aspies or normal NTs. I think athletic people are boring to talk to anyways. Hmmm...broad generalizations by other people are what got you into this situation in the first place... :? One step might be to refrain from automatically excluding certain types of people based on ...

Personally, I would not put a young child with a developing brain on psychotropic medications. There are too many unknowns when it comes to growing children. My standpoint comes from being someone who has tried a ridiculous number of these types of medications and who has a 5-year-old boy who has al...

Have you mentioned your ASD suspicions to your husband? If he ends up seeing a psychiatrist and getting a diagnosis and a therapist who can work with autistics, he might have an easier time understanding and modifying his behavior. If he's clueless about it, it's completely understandable why he is ...
