:lol: Call it whatever you want. it's not going to harm my health or happiness any if you (directed at everyone) aren't interested in reducing/eliminating symptoms that are hindering your lives.

65 Thought I would be higher because certain questions such as "Even when I am in a group of friends, I often feel very alone and uneasy" "I easily become wrapped up in my own interests and forget the existence of others." "I feel that I am temperamentally different from most people." "When I enter ...

I started to think up a list then I realized for the most part the positives and negatives were based on how other people reacted to my autism and had nothing to do with autism itself. These below had little or nothing to do with others. Positives Ability to really appreciate a subject Nagatives It ...

I'm kinda glad for that because of all the snickering and teasing that came around the word "aspergers". Heck, South Park made an episode making fun of the word. People tend to take you more seriously when you say "high functioning autistic" rather than "aspergers". That is creating definitions at ...

We re being asked to be guinea pigs. It is a very rational choice to let others be the guinea pigs. I'm not asking you to be guinea pigs and test out some new bathtub concocted pharmaceutical that I've never even tried myself. I'm suggesting that you try something that I've already tried on myself ...

I don't know them as well as you do so it is hard to say. Just because they come from that generation does not necessarily mean they feel that way. Also the elderly have various maladies, maybe they were not feeling well that day.

Your Grandparents come from an era where "personal issues" especially "mental issues" were something expected to remain behind closed doors and never to be discussed. If it were to become public it would bring shame to the family.

(PS: I am writing this from the perspecive of someone who was diagnosed in their fifties, and only first suspected that they might have AS less than 2 years earlier.)

After earlier being very critical of Goldfish I have stayed away from posting further as I do not have much nutritional knowledge to make any kind of comment about the diet itself.

It is not your fault and you are as human as anybody else. As far as Neurotypicals despite the name there is nothing typical about them there are good ones and bad ones. In New York City Neurotypicals have been searching for weeks to find an autistic boy who ran away. In upstate New York a neurotypi...

You have to do a self inventory and think of what specific aspects of sales you liked, what specific aspects of sales you disliked and specific aspects of sales were pressure packed. Also which type of company you liked working for large, small, formal, informal?
