What I am surprised by is the fact you went back. How come you didn't find a better therapist? I was a minor at the time. I was 10 or 11 when I started seeing her, and 16 when I stopped. My parents originally put me in therapy because I had trouble making friends, and because I kept getting bad gra...

early in my life I was trained to respond to demands of others, it did no good to try to understand their emotions or to try to express mine. I was simply to respond to them (please them) when they interacted with me. To do anything else was dangerous. I distinctly remember deciding that emotions w...

ABA has some merits to it. It's only problematic when the patient isn't told what behaviors (hence term "applied behavioral analysis") are expected from him. Unless I'm missing something, isn't ABA supposed to have full disclosure? Not unlike it's done with dogs, where the feedback is imme...

You may have seen my threads where I try to figure out why my therapist from long time ago did what she did. For example, she would often mock me, pretend not to know what I'm talking about, or gaslight me, or mad-dog me (stare at me in order to intimidate me). That always happened when I told her o...

Aspies above all should never, ever drink -- because... because... well, say you have only a Celeron for your social cpu. And let's say, you decide to run the Celeron at half-speed (by drinking). Well, the poor little Celeron social cpu just can't keep up with all the social instructions firing at ...

I respectfully disagree, by presenting this "thought experiment": • You are at a party. • You know everybody except two men, who could be identical twins. • One of the men hangs back and avoids speaking to anyone. • The other man mingles and actively participates in at least one lively co...

@Boo Yeah definitely lol. Well me being possibly autistic is most likely a factor here. I am very good with languages, i also taught myself a bit of japanese. Nice! It must have been difficult, since Turkish and Japanese are VERY different. From the alphabet, to the grammar, to the phonetics. Actua...

Don't they split all assets equally? like half of the house value, half of the cars' value...? What will happen to Bill Gates? 8O Not really. Most divorce judges in the US are feminists, including men. So the wife usually gets awarded everything, and the husband gets screwed. Unless, of course, he ...

I was saddened last weekend because I asked out a woman that really caught my eye. I felt so nervous. Then she informs me that she is married. :oops: I see no way to recover from that transaction. I have to stay away now or otherwise there is just trouble IMHO. If I had just seen a ring on a finger...

If you are following Jesus Christ you are a saint. You do not need a church to tell you that. You already are a saint. Thank you. But technically, I'm not. I'm a staunch atheist today, and before I renounced religion in 2011 (when my childhood soul fully died), I was Jewish. Saints are a Roman Cath...

I used to think I was one of a kind and that there was no one like me. I thought that being bullied was a way of life, and I thought I was used to classing myself as a second class person. It came as a great surprize to find out that elements of my character are autism traits, and I was asking myse...

(I'm aware that this thread is 5 years old and the OP's son is now 22.) This thread kind of hits home for me, since I used to do something similar during my high school years. While I didn't cyber-stalk girls in the true sense of the word, I did talk to try to look for a girlfriend online, and despe...

There's a reason why women don't tell you why they're not interested, or why they lost interest: it's evolutionary. If a woman isn't interested in you or loses interest, it means one thing and one thing only: you're not a genetically desirable man. It means you're not suited to have sexual contact w...

Here's someone no one mentioned yet: black-and-white thinking. It's a common trap for aspies. From age 13 until late college age, I imagined a girl's feelings for me in only two states: deeply in love or blatant disgust. No "I kind of like him", no "I have a crush on him", no &qu...

Yeah, I mostly know of them fighting against neo-nazis at punk gigs in the UK. That makes sense. Because Antifa lacks a central leader or an organization structure, every country makes it what they want it to be. In the UK, like you said, it's a fighting force meant to intimidate neo-nazis. But in ...
