Yes, I know, one of those "do Aspies do X?" threads... I realised the other day that I view people more or less as events. For example, I view some of my friends as "the people I talk to during registration", "the person I walk to Biology with", or "the person I sit with during Chemistry". If a per...

No. There's more to AS than social deficits, anyway.

or clumsiness! I feel like when I move around my room or anywhere I hit myself on things and I'm always dropping things or hurting myself. I have a hard time moving through space like everything just gets in the way and everything is uncomfortable! I even have a hard time putting a straw into my mo...

I have a very weird memory. I can remember things that happened years ago very precisely, and I can also remember a lot of things about my interests. But, I have a very bad memory for other things: for example, I have a lot of troubles remembering people's faces, and I also have troubles rememberin...

Desperately needing some advice! My 13 year old Asperger's son, was put on medication a couple of months ago for suicidal thoughts. He started with Prozac but suffered constant nausea and headaches, so after 2 weeks they changed it to sertraline which he's now been taking for 9 weeks. He also takes...

i think the individual featured in the arcticle has classic autism not AS Can we use terms like Kanner's autism, non-verbal, or deep-end spectrum, or something like that instead of "classic autism," because, personally, I happen to consider myself a classic! :P kanner's autism and nonverbal aren't ...

Welcome to Wrong Planet, Kyle. :) Clearly you have traits, but perhaps the psychologist didn't think you have it because you've adapted as an adult e.g. making eye contact. Being a psychologist doesn't mean you're an expert on ASDs, so perhaps you could get referred to someone with greater knowledge...

Autism is a collection of personality traits which become conspicuous when they occur in retarded people. I have a retarded son who is autistic. I share many of his personality traits, and I don’t regret any of them. Man’s mental and emotional makeup is undergoing rapid evolution. How could they no...

Maybe I should re phrase? I know of someone who may be anorexic but hasn't had a period in at least 3 months. Is that a concern? Not getting your period is a symptom of anorexia. In fact, part of the current DSM criteria is 3 consecutive missed periods, although that's going to be removed in the ne...

Firstly, I want to say that you're brave for sharing all this. I'm really sorry about what you've been through. 'I feel guilty for reaching out to anyone. I feel I don't deserve it because people probably go through so much more than I did.' You need to practice compassion towards yourself. Not that...

Did anyone here have doubts about their syndromes or conditions before (or possibly after) being diagnosed? And if applicable could you offer some similar conditions that involve inflexibility in routines, breakdowns, subject obsessions, and high sensitivity to sounds, textures and the like [withou...

First you wrote "I seem not to be able to learn no matter what I read or watch on TV" then turn around and write "my best subjects are science and music." Please clarify. I assumed that they meant learn body language, not learn in general. To the OP: Sounds about right but I think there are usually...

I'm ASD, my fiancee is not. I'm pretty concerned about how likely it is we'll have children on the spectrum. I'm not the only person in my family with ASD, either; my cousin Ben has it, and I'm pretty sure a couple of my uncles do, too. So, anybody know anything, or have their own kids and can offe...

Hey guys, I'm wondering if other people experience such a huge disconnect as I do between their ability to communicate online (via text) and their ability to communicate face to face. I watched a great video ( link ) about a low-functioning autistic girl who was non-verbal and apparently unresponsi...
