Even confident bad boys, I noticed, are afraid of asking out girls they actually care about. They just go out with a lot of girls they don't care about. I think that, if a guy puts up with your sh*t and isn't obviously in a relationship with someone else, he's probably into you. Same goes for girls,...

Omega 3 helps the brain, and general energy levels. You can look up nootropics ("smart drugs") to find out about more nutrients that help with brain function. Anything that helps with health, especially brain health, will help with autism, ADHD, etc. It's not a cure, but does make it easier to cope ...

And yes to Ghost, the time I was loudly rebuffed I was sort of interrupting her concentration and I was kicking myself because I should have known better. I'm generally a person who treads lightly in social interactions, so I think there's some hope I can figure out an approach that is comfortable ...

I'm not an accountant, but learned some stuff from my dad who knows a lot about businesses. 1. Half a million Americans overpay taxes. It's not illegal, just inefficient. 2. A lot of entrepreneurs get an accountant for this reason, which shouldn't cost more than the taxes he saves you. 3. If you don...

A lot of aspies (and relatives thereof) also have stuff like ADHD or mood disorders. Then there's teenage years, and the usual hormones. Stress obviously doesn't help. High school is hell for most aspies, but I hear college is usually better especially if he knows about his AS. 1. The parents discus...

I'm new here, mainly came here because I am interested in an Aspie woman (and am on the border myself, in terms of social anxiety and related issues) and looking for some insight. I am trying to understand some very mixed signals -- she seems to want to talk with me one day, but then refuses to spe...

Yes.

It wasn't until 1994 that the DSM IV added Asperger Syndrome, and still it took years for AS to be recognized by professionals... not much your parents could have done really, more likely you would have been mis-diagnosed and medicated, probably ritalin for ADHD which was popular at the time. I woul...

Long before any economic systems were formed, pure capitalism was the natural state of things, but it's highly unstable. Simple accumulation of wealth and power quickly leads to monopolies, and the only way to prevent them is some kind of regulation. Positively false! Pure capitalism assumes the ex...

Yeah, that makes sense. I guess I came off as a little exasperated in my post. Thank you for the replies. Being exasperated is perfectly understandable given the circumstances. Anyway, I would like to accept myself since there is probably nothing I can do to change who I am. I just worry that other...

Pillbug, going through life as an undiagnosed aspie can involve just as much suffering, except you don't have a clue why people treat you the way they do, which makes it worse. For years I suspected it was some vast conspiracy, until I recently found out about aspergers. Then for a while I doubted m...

Julius Caesar was going to be tried after his term in office, so he just used his governmental powers and some corruption to take the place over. Eunuchs were tried a few times too, didn't do much to promote altruism. I think the question isn't how to create an incorruptible government, but how to m...

Studies show that aspies have about the same range (and bell curve) of IQ as NTs, which means neither group has a monopoly on very high IQ. Now, one doesn't need high IQ to be a genius, or vice-versa. What makes aspies more likely to be geniuses is not higher IQ, it's higher obsessiveness. People wh...

My mom is like this, but I'm not.

I can improvise a speech in front of a crowd, or walk up to a total stranger and strike up a conversation. If they don't like me, too bad. Now if only I could read/project body language accurately, and understand how all these strange people think, I'd be set.

I went to see a podiatrist (for my flat feet) and he said I walk like a drunk.

I used to trip and fall 2-3 times a week before I did some judo. Now I still trip every so often, but I've only fallen twice in the last decade, and I don't drop stuff anymore either.
