I think I accept them kind of the same way Spock accepted the crew of the Enterprise, if you know what I mean.

LOL yes, very good point. That happens to me often.

My Girlfriend has recent been diagnosed with a learning disability and while I was told "no" I am still convinced she has classic Autism. What I find amazing is NOBODY caught on until I took action and insisted she needed an assessment because it was obvious something was wrong. She's got average I...

Anyone here learning disabled? Sometimes I feel like an outcast even amongst the WP community because so many are brainiacs who score(d) all A's, Knew how to program a computer at the age of three etc. I am super intellectual in some ways. I'm the walking encyclopedia type. But I've always been real...

I went to private schools with mainly autie/aspie kids and was considerably more in sync with them than the "normal" kids in my neighborhood, that's for sure. These days I'd like to have an aspie friend. I'd also like to mentor an aspie kid.

People carry flat stones in their pocket to rub. They're called worry stones. Stemming I think is more of a reiterative action such as hand flapping or hand wringing or rocking back and forth or bobbing your head. Something people would be inclined to call a nervous tick. NT's do all sorts of stemmi...

Thanks to everyone for the responses. I have decided to get evaluated, not because I think the evaluation will be useful in and of itself, but the ancillary effects may be worthwhile. Specifically, my wife recently said to me with respect to not liking being touched, that if it was rooted in some c...

although I present very NT and socially able (I can act it well). LOL there's your primary symptom right there. Having to mimic being "normal". I'm too good at it now myself, at least on the surface. I'm actually trying to tone it down some. Something like that can tend to become too obsessive and ...

I think the point of diagnosis in middle-age is coming to terms with what makes you different and why. If you feel you can associate with something like Aspergers as a matter of self identification, then it's probably a good idea to conjecture that you probably have it. I think an official diagnosis...

Someone once wrote here that it seems like all NT's are sociopaths, at least to a degree. I sometimes think that must be true. I'm not NT, but I am objective. Sociopaths come in all neurological varieties. Don't forget the percentage of NTs in society is much higher than that of neuro-A-typicals. I...

Arguing about the R word is so cerebral palsy. ;) Having CP myself, this reply jumped right out at me and I'll admit it. I definitely laughed out loud. I'm glad you weren't offended. I intended it as a joke because if we use all the other disability words how the R word is used, the R word wouldn't...

I've always mimicked the behavior traits of NT's, including being masculine. Not macho, just masculine. I never assimilated football though, because I decided it was too complex to waste my time on. How they keep track off all that stupid crap is beyond me. I wonder how many of them do so because it...

I was never picked on for being autistic in school, thank goodness, because I was always in private schools for kids with problems like mine. Except... for the one time they mainstrea...

I've been seeing and hearing autistic used in place of "retarded" or "stupid" by a lot by high schoolers lately. Just curious if this is a new fad, or has this been going on for awhile?


Not really. But I've heard "Rain Man" used in that way.

I'd get that visually too. I'd be staring at a flower or a bug or something and it would suddenly zoom in and fill my vision. I remember being able to see everything in incredibly sharp detail. Sometimes at home I'd stare at something across the room and it would fill my vision and I could see minut...
