I don't think the distinction diagnosed/undiagnosed is particularly relevant here, you yourself know whether you have anxiety in social situations or you don't.

Aside from NT members on this board this should basically apply to all of us.

Are personality and identity related concepts? Are they the same thing?

I've noticed it says on a few autism tests "doesn't read fiction" or something like that, but I read fiction (and get obsessed over book series). I still read more fact based information than stories though. Do you read fiction, and how much do you read (both fiction and non-fiction)? Asi...

You had mentioned that there was a time when you said that The Feelings Were Mutual . Unless you did something like have an affair to lose your virginity to someone else other than her, when she had feelings for you, I can probably guarantee that she still has feelings, but women tend to be very ba...

What scares you? That so many individuals are unable to: 1. see their unique self separate from [whichever form of autism] 2. determine exactly what it is that makes them the person they are, apart from [whichever form of autism] I do lean toward the behavior patterns definition, however separating...

I love to laugh, comedy is my favourite form of entertainment. If I meet a person I like- I tease them; it's how my family shows affection.I like drawing and looking at art. My family is very important to me. I'm extremely passionate about injustice and inequality. I have a lot of pride in my nativ...

I'm having trouble separating AS from my personality. I read that AS isn't supposed to define me, but I can't figure out what does.

What is personality? Give your own example.

Is there something that gives you great pleasure? Right now, I like watching old bowling videos. I don't remember great pleasures, but small pleasures I do have. One of my small pleasures is watching hands. Hands of people who make things. These for example: Woodturning - Tumbling Bowl Simple Sunse...

Stop texting people. Meet them and talk to them. As for your immediate concern, understand that people are not computers. You don't flip the "OFF" switch and everything just stops. So what happened? I've been that guy (perhaps still am, spooky), and I can tell you that there is a reason fo...

I'm not as successful as you. I've been a data entry clerk for 36 years. But I will retire with a decent pension within 6 1/2 years. I have no definition of my own for success. I can't conclude on it like that. For all I know consistency could be the success. Actually I have trouble with open-ended...

So finding out about my AS at age 28 explained a lot of things, but I find no comfort in it. My life is in tatters on all fronts and I don't know how to proceed forward, where to begin and what I should be doing.

How to live a life? How to live a life with AS?

I had a traumatic experience at age 16. Now I'm 28 and found out about AS. AS was the cause for the traumatic experience. The past 12 years have been a dark patch and memories of myself prior to the traumatic event have been lost. I know I was liked and admired, but I just don't remember. I was bett...

I started with a clean slate right after high school graduation. By and large, even though I've made a few mistakes in life, I succeeded pretty well. But can you do "clean slate" with someone you know, specifically someone you shared a painful experience with? What is your definition of s...

Why not proceed with a clean slate? Is the slate ever clean? I believe AS tendencies have me trying to go back to the problem and fix it. I'm not that optimistic at this point, I feel the clean slate ship sailed, if it ever existed to begin with. I do appreciate your suggestion though, as I hadn't ...

That depends on the individual. They would need to actually care about you for some reason or in some way for it to be beneficial to tell them of your condition. The ones who care and have any desire to work things out will actually bother to research and learn about the condition. The ones who do ...
