I've read that it's mostly cumulative social failure that dulls the desire for social contact, and that Aspie children can start off precociously. My experience is similar, nobody would have noticed any social problems until I was about 10. In reality there were a few problems but I had a big reluct...

The Aspie brain focusses more strongly than average, so flipping from one subject to another is difficult. The good focus is an asset, but also causes difficulties in multi-tasking which often show up in social situations, including the workplace, when neurotypical behaviour is expected. Of course t...

Yes it's well meant but you'd have a hard time finding one who was that profile exactly. There are huge variations in the individual. Ultimately you have to find out for yoursef.

I think it could be very good as long as you can learn the lines, and that's not really all that hard once you get going. I get a lot out of singing, which has the same kind of tight structuring - introducing the songs without a script is much harder than the singing itself, and people used to say t...

The commercials by nature are too much louder than the program. It's almost like they expect you to hear it from one room as you run into the bathroom or kitchen to use it or get something. And Billy Mays (dude who advertises things over the years, especially known for advertising OrangeGlo, OxiCle...

I'll always have a very warm feeling to the idea of going off and living in a commune. But so much would depend on details. Every time I think of a possible downside to joining, I can imagine a way round it if the details were favourable. In practice it would take a lot to coax me into making such a...

Haven't got the channel here, but it's an interesting topic. Facial expressions seem real enough to me, I've taken to making a little more eye contact with people recently, when it feels right, though I don't see a lot consciously yet, too busy making sure I'm not staring. But it's supposed to happe...

ASD cannot be diagnosed using any physical tests. However, other tests, such as hearing, or blood tests, may be used to rule out other health conditions. It made me wonder what they wanted to test blood for :? probably to rule out some conditions that have similar symptomps to AS but might be diagn...

I guess I'm one of the lucky few :D Anyway it's my third try at marriage and about my 6th try at a longterm monogamous relationship. And it's still not easy, not by any means. So much compromising on both sides, and me a perfectionist :? I never could do the one-night stand thing, I didn't understan...

Tough Diamond they have no right to test you for drugs or anything that you didn't agree to so don't worry about that. Thanks for this :) I thought there must be a privacy law or something that stops them. http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/articles/article.aspx?articleId=41&sectionId=7 What aroused m...

I'm undiagnosed, still officially in the "not sure if I have it or not" category, though since doing the online questionnaires and reading lots of WP posts, it looks pretty clear that I'm on the spectrum. And in the UK, I believe I could have an official test for free. So why aren't I pestering my G...

Music is a different kind of sound. Music is structured. Noise is unstructured. Turbulent. Our brains respond differently to music than to other noises. I agree that it's the regularity of most music that tends to make it more tolerable. And music is usually designed to please. But I also think one...

I’ve always had an intense need for privacy, yet I grew up in a home where a closed door was an insult; a locked door was sacrilege. There would be long periods of time when I was left totally alone, punctuated with periods of intense interrogation and intrusion. I can never fathom why anybody ever...

I absolutely despise it when my dad turns the tv up loud (he's hard of hearing, too much machine shops and not enough hearing protection for him). I absolutely loathe the conservative talk radio he loves blasting up load (especially since all they do is argue), I also loathe how he has to turn up h...
