Welcome Getting the explanation for why you are the way you are after decades of blaming yourself is a very emotional thing to happen isn't it? Hope we can help you make even more sense of things and find coping strategies. There will still be plenty of aha moments to come I suspect but you have cle...

Why don't you go to asexual and agender forums and see if you can relate to what to what they are discussing the in a similar manner to the way you relate to what we discuss?. But don't forget about us.

"Social Communication Disorder" is what it sounds like. Social Communication problems that impairs your functioning without other explanations. It is not considered part of the Autism Spectrum because there is no sensory issues, obsessive repetitive "special interests" , Executive Functioning issues...

You have good reason to suspect it. You have a lot of traits, family with traits, an indicative test scores.

I don't expect every single person to read my posts because I sure don't read everything online or on here so why would I expect everyone to read mine? I do expect people will read them but not everyone. This. But I do hope somebody will see what I wrote and say "There is somebody else that does th...

I agree with the above that ASD involves a lot more the introversion. I have also seen extroverted ASD's .
But in the USA I do think introversion alone is a disadvantage, and strong introverts are discriminated against.

IMHO it belongs here.

More of the same BS. Aspergers is a normal human malady that is over diagnosed. The "Aspie" interviewed seems to have no problems and does not think he is autistic. More "confirmation" for the Autism Speakes crowd.


Grrrr.

The weird thing is that all I want to do is hyperfocus on the things I find interesting, and that's about the only thing in my life I have seemingly limitless energy for. I have this overwhelming need to just be alone to read or write or paint (all things that recharge me), but I can't do that for ...

Though not part of the diagnostic criteria for ASD, many aspies have executive dysfunction. That means we have trouble with scheduling and being organized. For me, I think it is part of the hyper focus that sometimes comes with AS. I get lost in a zone and time just flies by. I mean to get around t...

The style, flow and choice of words are going to be different Thank you for the insight, ASPartOfMe, could you please elaborate , to help me understand better? I am trying to figure exactly how this works myself. The posts here compared to NT boards here are much longer, paragraphs are longer, long...

I know men get hard when they are aroused, but from my experience with men, their penises don't just spring up on a whim. That would be funny, though. You haven't met the right men then. And its certainly not funny, at least not for the men, embarrassing rather. Just the early morning bus ride to t...

It's odd to me that seldom does anyone here wonder how Aspie and autistic people lived BEFORE these conditions were recognized? My father was ALWAYS worried that I wouldn't have decent work. We never had a normal conversation, and he lived to be 92... and I took care of him for his last 5 years. He...

Aspies may talk about themselves because for the first time in their life they can talk about their traits with people who will at least partially understand where they are coming from and what they are feeling. Don't assume because people are talking about themselves that are not interested in othe...
