The thing that still gets me is that there is this shadow self in me that WANTS to be with people/connect with people, that conditioning is still there and it causes some psychologically detrimental behavior to myself. My "core self" as it were, authentic self, hates this behavior and wishes to sto...

I have spent my whole life intentionally avoiding these type of jobs because even before I knew about Autism I knew these jobs were bad for me. I did have interaction with clients over the phone. The good part was no eye contact and they were about specific problems with software I had written. The ...

The root cause of a lot of our problems is the complete lack of trust the the government-cooperate establishment. You could argue that the "tea party" or the "gun nut" "answer" is wrong and depending on the issue I might agree with you but the "paranoia "is justified. Just look at the NSA and relate...

The reaction was quite similar - that it's very unlikely that I have aspergers, that it's fashionable nowadays to diagnose asperger's, and that the diagnosis doesn't make any difference, because there's no medication for asperger's and I'd still have to "hold on" and "keep myself together" the way ...

Yeah, he had Asperger's. School principles and his mom said it. His behavior is very much like an aspie. Yeah, he was more socially aware than most but his other behaviors fit Asperger's, including his obsessional thinking, loneliness, and social avoidance. He was also horribly bullied, something t...

It was also found I had Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Can you guys ever imagine an Aspie's sufferer with 'Fibrofog'? It's a bloody nightmare! Fibromyalgia seems to be a common co morbid condition to autism especially in females.

"neuromajority" and "neuromainstream" are more accurate in the sense that a lot of our problems a result of our neurolegies being neither. "Typical" has a negative connotation such as boring, unimaginative and so using "Neurotypical" stigmatizes that group. The problem is that we have gotten used to...

It is as the late Lorna Wing said a "triad of impairments". Unfortunately social "deficits" in autism is what most of the neurotypical world cares about if they care about it at all. So most of the treatments are attempts to "fix" social "deficits" . This means the treatments are at best partially e...

Wrongplanet is hardly a reflection of the autistic population. I've met people with autism in real life that have no idea about this forum, nor have any interest in it. --- In the AS/HFA support groups I attend many people do not go on internet forums . Which is irreverent to the possibility of fem...

Social Reciprocity deficits mean just that. It does not mean it is impossible it means that progress is going to be painstakingly slow.

When I was a teen we had a family of 9 and a family of 13 on my block plus a lot of other teens (they called the baby boom for a reason) We would hang out on the corner then graduated to cruising around in cars. Now I go to 2 or 3 Aspergers/HFA support groups a month. Some of us go to a diner after ...
