Everybody, in my opinion, has something “wrong” with them. I’m not sure if you should go to a psych ward.....but I don’t know you.

Some age regressors like to use child-like objects such as pacifiers and bottl...

Hi folks, I'm a self diagnosed aspie. I only realized I'm on the spectrum after my daughter was diagnosed. Most of my family and friends don't have any idea I'm likely an aspie and I've managed to live a very successful life so far. I was bullied and teased quite a bit as a kid but since the age of...

Not really related to eating disorders but i have this theory that autistic people often eat to much or to little because of sensory issues and feeling hunger.

The ridicule, condescension, and rudeness often exhibited toward us type 2s is regrettably rampant in many autism communities. Most of these communities are run by individuals who have no clinical diagnosis, or are type 1 or higher, and they expect people to read between the lines, understand humor...

Hi, awhile back I posted something about how I'm often babied and I think one user or perhaps several thought it was teasing. However recently it was suggested to me by a friend that I seem very vulnerable and come across as someone who needs to be protected. While I found it very funny to hear, it...

I have very similar problems (also probably level 2, to the best of my knowledge I wasn’t given a number at diagnosis, though). There are two kinds of inability to speak that I experience. One is where I know exactly what I want to say but no matter how hard I try, my vocal cords will not respond. ...

I'm a level two, and I have trouble talking sometimes. When I get stressed or angry or upset, I can literally feel my mouth becoming paralyzed and I become unable to produce words, despite having a clear idea of what I want to say in my head. I use a text to speech app on my iPad and phone, as well...

I think on some level there might be a different type of communication but i think ultimately the problems caused by comorbids and varying levels of severity would cause problems. I also think its important to realize that theres a difference between irl and not. I dont think theres any sizable diff...
