Hey I was wondering if anyone else has this problem. Now from time to time I become extremely bored of everything. Usually I confine myself to my room not for any particular reason but I do feel more comfortable there. My boredom is also accompanied by tiredness, loss of motivation, and the inabilit...

I've meet another Aspie before it was pretty great, it made me wish we had an entire city with just AS people living there. I really wounder what it would feel like to live in a place like that.

To get a DX in adulthood is extremely difficult especially when your a woman. I'm 20 years old and when I was 8 I had a psych assessment done and they completely missed it. Instead they DXed me dyslexic with speech difficulties and social dysfunction. Now my little sister is 4 years old same problem...

They were very sensitive to his AS and trying to understand him. I hope he never has to go back but if he does I think we can get help there. Wow that's great I have a young friend who got a wrong DX because the doctors weren't sensitive about his AS. He actually has BP too. You're really lucky to ...

Why would an Aspie want to have children? You'll pass on your genes to someone else who will want to commit suicide all his/her life. Yeah I feel the same way, but if I did have a kid I'd do my best not to have it feel like I did. Although I find that I'm not really psychologically sound enough to ...

I love south park and I'd be offended if they didn't include AS. I would love to just laugh at myself at the hands of writers who mock everyone equally. If they didn't it would mean Autism isn't relevant enough to be included and that is a show of insult.

That's what my brain does, I have no control over it, and I really don't mind it especially when I'm thinking about my obsessions. Unfortunately though NTs don't get it and I'm ridiculed for my thought process. They get angry that I have difficulty focusing things for long periods of time and gettin...

I was definitely born with it. Genetically I do believe that it runs in the family, but it's possible that the other factors you've talked about could influence a worse outcome in the genetic predisposition. For example a vaccine simply might antagonize the factors causing genetic predisposition. Ha...

Reasons to hate being an Aspie female: - There's far less of your kind to relate to or develop a support group with (in real life anyway) - NTs cant tell the difference between NT girls and AS girls (many dont even believe in the existance of AS girks) so when an AS girl is unintentionally not soci...

This could maybe be linked with the 'Dirty Feeling' post, but I've noticed that very few NT's wash their hands after peeing. EWWWWWW!! !! ! That's way worse than not bathing! I wash my hands compulsively cause I have OCD. It's the thought that there might be germs on your hands and if you get somet...

Well I don't like a lot of animals but they really seem to like me. It's because I'm quite and approachable to them because I don't make eye contact. Cats are especially attracted to me, and dogs like me too even though I'm not big on them. I did notice that children always seem to be interested in ...
