I’ve only known about my AS for nine months and am trying to get my head around some of my issues. I went for a meal with my wife and kids. When we arrived at the restaurant it was quiet but it quickly filled up. The restaurant became very busy and was fairly loud, with lots of different conversati...

Back on 25mg today. My last 40mg dose was last Friday, so the tinnitus has subsided. Initially the 40mg gave me a real kick, like an amphetamine kick, which was great for concentration. But calmness that I experienced at 25mg was gone and I felt my anxiety rising. Now, back at 25mg, my calmness has ...

Strattera update. I started experiencing a ringing sound about 10 days after increasing my dose to 40 mg. My doctor is putting me back on 25 mg a day, which had a very powerful calming effect. That's just a quarter of my expected dose based on body weight, but not unusual for Autistic people, who of...

I only realised my habit of answering rhetorical questions a few years ago. I still struggle with them. Now if in doubt I don't 'answer'. I wait to see if the ' question' is restated, then I know it isn't rhetorical. I prefer the other person to experienc a little frustration, rather than me feeling...

I know that legally I am disabled but I don't really consider myself disabled. This is because I can earn a living in my own business, exercise regularly and rigorously, have all my limbs and all 5 senses. The social impairment that qualifies me as legally disabled is largely irrelevant as I don't s...

I'm 42 but emotionally, I feel like I'm no older than my 20s, at the most. A lot of things that adults are supposed to think and do, I don't think or do, and some of it I do not even understand. I'm 50, exercise a lot and feel like I am late 30s early 40s. The divergence gets much bigger with each ...

I have ADHD as well as Aspergers. I have only recently been prescribed medication for my ADHD. Due to my underlying anxiety my Doctor has prescribed Strattera, a non-stimulant medication. The dosage is being raised gradually and I am hoping that this will be effective in helping me manage my ADHD. D...

With the exception of my family, I prefer to not be around people. Socializing can wear me out. I often get tired of trying to interact with people---especially after a prolonged time. Even as a child I preferred my special intense interests to socializing. That's me. As far as interacting on inter...

You left out the option 'I don't know'

I have AS not HFA so I have no idea if they are the same.
