There's nothing unintentional about it. It's simply someone setting out to be as rude and disrespectful as they can. Usually arises from their perception that you've disrespected them in some way. This is the unfortunate reality of AS. However well-intentioned you may be, your lack of non-verbal 'la...

I'm fine with the transport. It's the public I have issues with. There's always some annoying git doing something to spoil your journey - even if it's only wearing outrageous amounts of pungent, suffocating perfume (don't get me started on perfume). If it's not that, then it's repetitive coughing or...

i have not much love, but if i love someone, then i will listen to every word they say and i try hard to understand. i try to make them feel better if they are down. i pay lots of money to fix their debts, and i think of many creative things in their honor that i like to give them when i see them. ...

I always felt that telling someone you love them kinda cheapens it. Tell them they're adorable, etc, etc - but not that you love them, unless you're bidding them farewell for the final time in your life. Telling someone you love them directly to their face almost seems to violate the sanctity of the...

One thing I cannot understand: how a person with IQ =109 could write a post like that? isnt an average person's IQ around 100?? Yeah... may be I am wrong... And 109 is just an average. I thought that the average was around 70... 70 is the breaking point between "normality" and "mental retardation"....

THE average person's IQ is EXACTLY 100, or 100/100 or 1 or 100% ... it IS the average for one's chronological age.

On that site I got 45%, but my short-term memory is a disaster.

Better than I did.
I got 0% because I couldn't even take it.
Where are the instructions ?

I have terrible short term memory, I'll watch tv and the ads will come on and I'll forget what I'm watching. Even if it's something I'm really into. I'll forget what I did yesterday. I'll forget to tidy up or some other chore, like taking the rubbish out. I'll forget I've already got a particular f...

I personally like to think I give good advice, so I try to get down to the bottom of things. Advice is really a charity, and it does feel good when you help someone. But in many cases, most people just want you to agree with them or do not wish to solve their own problems. Either way, it depends on...

I guess the subconscious associations with diagnosis are cure or accommodation (even compensation). The reality is that the understanding of 'what was wrong' is the only reward. It's just an understanding of what's not functioning, of why things are different for us. But it IS at least, a solid laun...

You must talk. You need to talk - I mean from the heart. You need a good therapist who has a clue what you're going through and HOW to get you to where you need to be .... and that means someone conversant with Asperger's/ASD's. A therapist unacquainted in this area may turn out to be a waste of eve...

The candour. The openness. These are two qualities that make Asperger's people very special - and I don't mean that in a patronising, 'special needs' kind of a way. A few months away from this place (purely out of choice) and I realised that it provides me with something I've almost come to develop ...

As far as I am aware there have been no headlines saying "Scientists have finally disproven that God exists" As this point those the don't believe in God have as much "Faith" that God doesn't exist, as those who do have faith that he doesn't. But that's all it is, faith. It's can't be proven to any...
