. . . I am 32 and an engineer and I must stim to be productive. . . Any less noticeable methods, like a squeeze ball? Yeah, I arranged to have a standing workstation so it doesn't look weird for people to see me standing on one leg and then switching to the other. Also, bouncing up and down at my w...

I am also not a parent but live on the spectrum. I am 32 and an engineer and I must stim to be productive. Fortunately I have my own cube now so I can stim away while I work. When I give presentations or attend conferences, it is very difficult for me to focus if I must remain still. Interestingly, ...

I am a high functioning Aspie and fairly technophobic. My situation is double ironic since I work as an engineer.

My first experience of being depressed is also my first memory. I don't think I have ever been in a genuinely happy place although i have gotten quite good at acting happy so that other people around me don't pay inordinate amounts of attention to my "attitude."

Thanks for the advice. :) I supposed with the accessories thing, I should have explained more: I've been going on a handbag and jewelry splurge at the moment, and I think perhaps it's common sense to chose colours that go with the main colours in my wardrobe rather than just chose any random colour...

Fashion and cosmetics are also one of my Aspie special interests. With the vintage look, I think if you are going to wear the 40s/50s style dress, then go for it all the way with the accessories...otherwise you run the risk of looking like you are just dressing in out-of-date styles rather than inte...

Bloom this is fantastic! I know that I absolutely LOVE it when I find another engineer as geeky as I am to date. It is so liberating to get all technical with someone else without them getting that glazed-over look that people get when not only do they not understand what you are saying, but they do...

Interestingly, I don't think your experience is much more negative than most Aspies. I am a female and a little older than you I think but the childhood experiences you describe are similar to my own.

I have a highly critical self-monitor. She is much much harsher on me for messing up in social situations than the other actual people involved in those situations. I have often wondered if this was a result of growing up with NTs.

Along the same lines as LeagueGirl, I think people on the far ends of the autistic spectrum truly would still need special accommodations even in an AS-dominated world. That being said, people at the other far end of the spectrum i.e. overly emotional people still need special accommodations in this...

I've seen this twice now and I'm wondering. You say that this can happen with an overload of social interactions... But he doesn't have to make ANY. We live with other people, but for the most part we keep to ourselves in our room. Mostly because my anxiety causes me social complications as well. I...

Wow, Rainydays, I am an Aspie female and I literally just did a shutdown on my bf of the past six months. He didn't do anything "wrong" to cause the shutdown except not really understanding just HOW HARD I tried to be comfortable in the social situations I had to be in to be with him, or how hard I ...
