If there's one thing that's certain in this life, it's that there's always someone who understands how you're feeling - it's just a matter of finding those people.

I like being on or near the water. My sport is rowing - I find it so beautiful and relaxing to be on the water at dawn by myself. I don't really like being immersed in water. I had great difficulty learning to swim because of the feeling of water pressing against me and I hated putting my head under...

In science one of the problems I have is getting stuck on the words because they're so wonderful - Deoxyribonucleic Acid, homozygous, heterozygous, alleles, Golgi apparatus, ribosomes - there's so many beautiful words in science, but they're distracting at the same time. I care more about labelling ...

>Those who don't give a f*ck rule the world :lol:

Don't know about empathy, but sensitivity to criticism is an Aspergers trait which I certainly do possess. I promise I will try to give less f*cks from now on!

Thanks for the link.

I think my emotional intelligence is stuck in teenage mode. It's been like one everlasting puberty my whole adult life.

Yes, r2, I know what you mean. A truly good therapist is difficult to find. I know I've encountered a few over the years who were either singularly unhelpful or who contributed significantly to my anxieties - which is even less helpful now I think of it 8O I'm glad you've found some good ones. Best ...

Have you considered completing the University of Cambridge Autism Research Centre's tests? Aside from the Autism Quotient (AQ) test, the others are factor tests for AS and other autism-spectrum disorders and include the Empathy Quotient (EQ), Systemizing Quotient (SQ) and Friendship Quotient (FQ) t...

I like the clocks story. Although, (I'm trying to place myself in that position and see what I would have done). is noticing that he had two clocks enough to make him think you have Aspergers or do you have to notice that they are 20 seconds apart? Or is it the ticking of the clocks? Or? I think it...

Raleigh , that's good, right? I mean, now you might be a bit more sure about the whole thing. How do you feel about it now a few hours later? Anyway, the psychologist sounds cool and it's good that he wants to help you. Good to hear it went well. (I wonder what it'd mean if someone with AS didn't c...

Had my first visit with the psychologist today. I was so nervous beforehand it was difficult to fill out the forms with any kind of legibility and I was sweating so profusely I began to wish I'd thought to bring another shirt. When I got in he asked me a few general questions and then asked why I th...

Last night: I'm in the middle of the ocean. I see a huge wave rise behind me, like a tsunami. I panic, try to swim, but I'm getting nowhere. The wave crashes down on me. I'm spinning, flailing, things are hitting me - seaweed, fish? There's a loud roaring. It's getting darker as I sink further. I do...

When I lose interest in reading, I start writing. The writing makes me want to research, so it leads me back to reading. Does this make sense?

You know, my therapist and I talked about this a few days ago. My "standard mood" is always depressed and then I have quite regular episodes of very depressed mood (when I don't feel like doing anything, don't want to live but don't really want to die etc.). When those episodes are over my mood ret...
