As I first started learning all this AS stuff I, too, talked about it way too much. It became a bit of a special interest and bored others. Also, my symptoms were much stronger then and so I was more predisposed to behaving that way. Re: Homework.. do your damned homework. You're paying good money t...

That's damn fast. 8) I've run at that 10mph pace for 1-2mins at a time on a treadmill while varying pace, but I've yet to tackle a 6min mile. It's on my goals list, though. I've been doing a lot more longer distance jogging. I ran 9.xx kms this evening - outside, in the dark. 8) I didn't time myself...

Yeah, but goldfish , you cer-azee Yanquis smoke joints that are pure grass, so you can't be taken as a reliable measuring post. I tried smoking an American friend's joint once. Not realising the UK/US difference, I did what I would normally do, and took a long deep drag and held it in for a good fe...

I used to smoke a lot more weed and my use has fluctuated over the past 12 years since I first tried it. Currently I still smoke, but my anxiety levels and other symptoms that I was self medicating for have dropped through the floor in comparison to how bad they used to be, so I can get away with sm...

Just be who you are and stop worrying so much what other people think. It really is that simple. I'm a baptized Roman Catholic, but I'm not very religious. I'm God Father to a few kids. I don't really care for organized religion due to the money, greed & corruption involved. I consider myself mo...

-----------1. ASD people may have much less socializing with others, and may devote their free time to education and/or an intellectual hobby. [....] However, if the ASD person squanders life on say computer games, then the ASD is a detriment. I disagree that spending life on one hobby rather than ...

I don't look or act "gay," and didn't as a child/teenager, either, so I've never had to deal with crap like you described above with bully kids doing their thing because someone's suspected of being gay. I'd rate that as being more damaging and traumatic than some guy on a jobsite losing his s**t ov...

I personally detest the word. I don't use it often as a gay/bicurious male. Hehe. Reminds me of a skit from South Park : "See, it's OK for me to say F*GT, because I'm gay. You can't. You're straight" I reminds me of the episode where all the boys were calling the bikers Fags and the adults were all...

I was pretty bad at it. I could do it, but it never looked pretty. Teachers determined that the biggest reason my writing looked so sloppy is that the slant of the letters wasn't consistent at all. Some would slant back, others would be vertical, and others would slant forward.. and this could all b...

don't say anything to him. he's not in a good mood that's going to result in a productive conversation anyways. sounds like he's just overwhelmed and frustrated and angrily saying things he doesn't really truly mean. the best thing you could possibly do about it is forgive him, silently to yourself,...

I've noticed some traits in some deaf friends of mine, so no, probably not. There's bound to be quite a few.

I've always been open to trying any food of any type from any ethnic background etc. At the moment I do tend to go through routines of eating certain things daily for a while and then getting bored with them and changing up to something else that I'll eat every day for a while and then change up aga...

Yes, eyes do all of these things & more during sex and at virtually all other times as well. There's a lot of subtle communication spoken through the eyes just as there is via body language. It may just be that you don't always pick up on it. I know that I will semi-consciously communicate many ...

red/green - yes - but i haven't taken a test in a long time and i wonder if it's changed any. the only time it affects me at all is reading red writing on a green background or green writing on a red background - sometimes it's next to impossible to read. red/green is the most common colour blindnes...

Happened to me big time when I was 17yo and about to graduate from high school and super stressed about what I was going to do next and for my future etc. At the time I didn't know what was happening and it was really scary. Since then I've learned about depersonalization/disassociation and that it'...
