Christine Miserandino came up with a way of explaining this. While not about aspergers per say a lot of...

That is the whole point if I can do it you can all do it. : While a lot of could do better if they only tried harder or tried at all this is not true for everybody.

but there are so many people who have aspergers and love being called "aspergers" and nothing else, and the DSM 5 took that right away. People can call themselves whatever they want. Nothing was "taken away". There is no conspiracy. People can call themselves what they want but but what I have noti...

If you need help, then it is worth the attempt. Even if the doctor who evaluates you does not or cannot diagnose with AS, you may get another diagnosis that can help you get SSI or Vocational Rehabilitation. I am also in California, and I have compiled a small list of specialists. They may not be i...

To me if you believe people should be understood and accepted for having a neurology that is different from the majority you have a neuro diverse viewpoint. To me if you believe that people who have a minority neurology are wrong and should either be separated or made to be normal you do not have a ...

For myself I do not fear getting undiagnosed because of the person who diagnosed me and because according to the DSM 5 your old diagnosis is supposed be carried over under the new name. I do fear not being able to get benefits if I want them in the future due to a economic or civil collapse of the U...

Late 1960's Bubblegum Rock. Something I "should" have grown out of by middle school or Junior High School as it was known then. 1969 was the year of Woodstock and Altmont. Somehow this was the number 1 song for the year [youtube]

Positive and Negative are extremes. You can be too much of either. The fact for me is that I don't like everything I come across in life and I feel like a complete fool when I act like I enjoy something I don't like. I basically agree with the above.
