I'm watching it. But I prefer to watch baseball or hockey and I am looking forward to the Winter Olympics because I like watching people play in the snow.

People are always trying to change me. I am learning how to say no to these people. If the people are well meaning and somebody I truly like it is difficult to say no to them. My diagnoses has helped me understand 1. How truly different I am then most people. 2. How my failure to please people despi...

Since internet forums came into being I bore people a lot less as I now have a better outlet to discuss my interests rather then discussing them anybody who just happens to be around. You learn a lot about your interests on these forums. You don't have to look people in the eyes or read body languag...

Everybody is welcome here. Autism Spectrum Disorders are just that a spectrum. There is less affected, more affected and a million different ways to be affected. Most people will not have all of the traits. You are autistic or not. If you think you are not autistic we have threads for that also. Thi...

A lot of Aspies have difficulties with multitasking. As far as what the "big picture" concept is I will use an example of a Aspie whose job is to create a schedule for a commuter railroad. The Aspie might schedule trains to run every half and hour . He would figure this would be easy to understand a...

I may be talking nonsense here but would not your training teach you the body language relevant to diagnosing people?. Interviews or sessions are structured. Diagnosis is based on a checklist the person does or does not do this, If the person the person does 4 out of 5 things on the list give them ...

my conclusion is getting past the interviews for any people with aspergers is going to be a real challenge. Especially considering we are competing with many people who aren't on the spectrum at all. This is why the employment figures are so dismal. If you are getting to an interview, you've been d...

Anxiety and thinking in great detail is common in AS. These work against sex which a natural instinctual process. When one fails in their quest to orgasm it is natural to get even more anxious and think harder about how to do it the "right way". This becomes a version of the "mind feedback loop" com...

Personally, I dislike those who tell me to be happy, no offense meant to be taken to the OP. It's just, if I'm in a particularly crappy mood and someone just tells me to smile and "be happy", I'm going to say something about it. I am the same way but I probably usually don't say anything about it. ...

I am one of the luckiest people in Birmingham, Alabama!! ! It only took me 2 and a half hours to get home Tuesday--and that's with a trip to the grocery store. I managed to get almost all the way home. Only had to walk one block. Many people I know were trapped on the freeway and had to spend a nig...

10 out of 11 individuals qualifying for Asperger's Disorder under DSM-IV would receive a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder under DSM-V. A lot of the most successful people with Asperger's are probably part of the other 1 out of 11. I think they're trying to discredit a lot of the Aspie success ...

These things always start out as "reasonable" and usually end up as a mass civil rights and constitutional violation that most people do not care or want to know about because they personally think they have done no wrong and have nothing to hide. It was not always this way. In the 1970's when the r...

I've been a lurker for the last two years and finally committed. Mostly I feel trapped. I am a 47 year old woman who is too NT to be considered AS but have too many AS traits to be fully embraced into the NT world. As a result, my relationships tend to be with men who are likely on the spectrum and...
