This thread is awesome. I bookmarked it ages ago and then forgot about it. Thank you everyone who posted their experiences. I so totally experienced this ( mid-late-20's ). And my life has never really got back on the rails or any kind of satisfying fulfilling creative/productive path since, ( I've ...

I so get this "meta-voice" phenomenon. :) I used alcohol and cannabis pretty heavily too, for a couple of quite long periods, and loved the way it stopped that constantly analysing background comment on everything, or muted it or something. Ref: playing with young child/son ; a housemate once said t...

Watching someone slowly and methodically put away a board game can elicit it. It doesn't always happen though. I think perhaps the sound those plastic baggies that game pieces are put in set it off. I've experienced this too. :) As for it being linked to synesthesia, I don't have that at all in any...

Here's an example of a man whose voice does this for me: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af6o7LvA5pA[/youtube] In this case, Jay Wilson, the man being interviewed. Actual interview seems to start at 46 seconds. I spent a lot of time watching Diablo III videos because his voice caused that A...

I don't like that particular video, ( something about her voice puts me off instantly :) ) but I have experienced this on several occasions since childhood, always "accidentally", and have just this week become interested in it ( after reading an article about it in the context of online therapy wor...

Am always glad when this subject is brought up in the media or research, because so few people seem to understand or know about the different female presentation of autism ( incl aspergers ), and it's so frustrating when people say "oh you can't be on the spectrum because ... ". My experience is tha...

I think the thing that is often missing here is the trying. Be the best that you can be ... Everybody does that already; there is no other way that they/you/anyone can be. You/they are at this moment totally and utterly the way that the universe designed you/them. There are no "lost" versions/varia...

I MADE IT! And you can, too. YOU ARE NOT YOUR EMOTIONS. Despite your feelings, do the next right thing, and you will achieve your goals. So if you're not your emotions what are "you"? Thoughts/beliefs? And if you are *not* your "limiting beliefs" who or what are "you"? Who or what is determining wh...

I thought i'd be dead before this ... and i am alive so i am a success among other reasons... Someone said earlier on here that the answer to the OP's question all depends on how we define success. :) If we define success as simply being alive then we're all successful aspies and auties here! :lol ...

If we focus on our natural skills and develop those to the best of our ability then we can and do tend to become successful in those areas . In order to be a success we need to find our niche. I don't think that the diagnostic criteria for the autism Spectrum include or specify any "natural skills"...

"Where are the successful aspies?" They're not supposed to exist, ie. the criteria for being diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum include/require that a person *be* "impaired" ( socially, at work, and in sexual relationships ); the diagnosis is of a disability not "just" a difference ... so th...

So many of the same things as already been posted it's weird, and sad and somehow "affirming" at the same time. Love reading them. :) From really early in childhood ( "Pick your feet up" said my mother when I tripped over, aged about 6, and I actually picked one of my feet up, "Don't take things so ...
