British National Autistic Society Webpage is the best explanation I have seen so far High Functioning Autism has always been a colloquial term In the The DSM IV manual used from 1994 to 2013 Aspergers syndrome was an official diagnosis. Is the current DSM 5 manual the ...

All of them A guide to Aspies for NTs This is the most obvious Advocacy to put AS back in the DSM Probably to late for this, the words "Aspie" and Aspergers has been tarnished beyond repair it seems. But I hate giving up, and Hans was the first Autism advocate so write it. It's really true not all o...

As a child and teenager I got along with adults much better then with my peers because I was more quiet then other teenagers.

As an adult I get along much better with children then with adults. Kids have not developed all those social rules, cues, not saying what they mean etc.

I see two main possibilities to this situation. He may think he is 99.9% non autistic but is not. One symptom of Aspergers is not understanding how others see you. When I was in my 20's I thought I had outgrown my nightmare teenage years. But looking back while those were clearly the best years of m...

Don't know your parents but parents and mothers in particular have a natural protective instinct. I am in my 50's and got diagnosed last year. Adult diagnosis is difficult because you need to have had Autism when you were a kid. Memories have gone bad, records do not exist. I remember being in publi...

1 through 4.

Until I was in my 40's
1. I did not know I was not doing it.
2. I did not know people cared about it.

I am a lot better at it in recent years but I wonder if I over compensate and stare to long.

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts kind people! I called my GP today and made an appointment to begin what will doubtless be A Long Process! My wife is very pleased. I am very scared. I think it is right for me though; I need to find out if this is definitely what is 'wrong' with me. Although...

Read through the threads here. If there are a lot of moments when you are saying OMG this is describing me EXACTLY, I can't believe there are others that do that or feel that way that would be an indication.

I have told this many times before but in the late 90's my boss told me that I had a little bit of autism. I thought he was the one with the quirks and bad social skills for saying that. Before I got that job the economy was booming for everyone except me. I was repeatedly told I did well in the int...

It does not surprise me that a book entitled "50 Shades of Grey" would be unpopular on a website where people tend to engage in black and white thinking.

Glad you found it interesting. I found the full movie for Change of Habit on youtube here. Between 25:00 and 26:40 Mary Tyler Moore diagnoses the girl and explains the cause which is what we know as "Refrigerator Mother" theory. She is "cured" by Elvis bet...

All situations will assume I did not tell my young self anything prior. 1. A little bit at a time tell him you have this thing currently not known about called Aspergers-Autism and explain how it effects everything you are about. 2. To your 10 year old self in 1968. Hit them back. I know this sounds...

I have been on various forums since 2000 and this site is by far the most annoying and time wasting with it's constant captchas, and error messages that have nothing to do with why I can't do what I want.
