I feel pretty lame when I miss this cue, and when I am embarrassed and thrown off it is hard for me to ge...

Particularly teachers? I have to make a presentation about it for college and I'm struggling. I have to assume that the readers are not informed on ASDs.

I am dreadful at my trying to do the small talk. If somebody mentions an interesting topic, I might hook in it and I will summarize something, but when I am supposed to do the trash talk with which every dialogue starts, I am just staring at the other person and expect them to say something first. ...

I strongly suspect I have mild, perhaps high functioning aspergers syndrome. I've been put through a lot of hassle already by the NHS who have messed me around and referred me to all the wrong specialists (ADHD, for example) and have been waiting since April 2011 to see somebody. It's coming to the...

Is anyone here doing AS English Language? How are they finding it? So far I've missed a lot of classes mainly due to anxiety issues, but in two of the classes I have been in, autism was mentioned which I found odd, since I don't think it comes up in classroom banter often. On the first occasion the ...

I'm rubbish at remembering numbers, but there's a woman at my college who works with AS students and she says there are ~19 of them out of 1500~ students overall ( not counting me who she said she thinks would be a very, very mild case if I was diagnosed, and I think one of the 19 may have autism pr...

Anyway, I don't know if I have AS and I've been diagnosed with depression but I think dysthymia is a more accurate label. But I know what you mean with regards to diagnosis and special interests.
