I don't have those sorts of swings; that's one thing to be grateful for, I guess.

There's nothing worse than not knowing what's going on in your head and why, whatever the reason. I hope you find the right doctor or shrink who can help you get some better answers.

Slow brain... that's ME. I hope someone who has overcome this will feel able to share what they went through.

I go through periods of confusion. I posted this sometime ago: http://www.wrongplanet.net/postp4277136.html#4277136 I dont know if this is it, but my cognition falters into the abyss. On its own it could take several weeks to a few days for a comeback. I've noticed a stimulant can shock it back now...

While I am not certain that I am on the spectrum, I can understand at least some of what you are going through. I had an alcoholic friend of mine live with me for nearly two years and the chaos he brought threw me into an almost constant state of anxiety. Even 7 months after he moved out, I am stil...

Here's what happened: My mother died 20 months ago. I began to have the loss of functionality described here: http://asdculture.wikispaces.com/Grief+and+ASD (I'm so GRATEFUL for that site, so I at least knew what was happening to me!!) My condition worsened slowly as the months passed. I lost my abi...

http://asdculture.wikispaces.com/Grief+and+ASD One of our members has written an outstanding article on ASD and grief. Thank you, that's an excellent article!! So... it's looking like we don't adhere much, if it all, to the NT models of grieving. It makes it a little harder, since I don't know what...

My mother passed away in January, and the old reptile brain refuses to accept that she's dead. We weren't that close, so I'm not overwhelmed by devastation, and I'm married and live in my own home, so it's not like I can't manage without her, I wasn't dependent on her. It's just plain old denial. Gr...

I've had things like this happen at every job I ever did; no matter how nice, friendly, hard-working, helpful, etc I was, eventually I'd become an outsider, and it was only a matter of time before I got forced out, told I "just wasn't fitting in," or made the butt of some sort of scheme. The best on...

I always did as I was told, I was never late, I was very responsible, respectful, etc, but there was something about me they found stressful or unsettling in some way, and so I would be "let go" because "it just isn't working out" and they "don't know why". In other words, they could not articulate...

Perfection for me would've been learning by staying at home and reading, with a teacher available for questions by phone. I never learned anything from a lecture or from the babblings of other students; just let me absorb the facts at whatever speed is working for me that day and don't waste my time...

when I look back on my life I have just have memory after memory of sitting home alone by myself in my room That was me before I met my husband at age 30; I spent my childhood and young adulthood reading on my bed. I managed a little bit of friendship, some concerts, sometimes a boyfriend, but neve...

I was explaining to my uncle today about being an Aspie, and pointing out how many of my "odd" traits are in fact totally normal for Aspies. I was illustrating how these contributed to my extreme difficulties in getting a job (even during a booming economy), and he blurted out that HE had NEVER been...

I like your idea of the chores on the day he misbehaves. Maybe a choice of one of three. We are all moving in full time in three weeks, and when we do, I'll give it a shot. Thanks! You're welcome!! As has already been said in this thread, I think you're honestly trying to find solutions, which is d...
