That's true of some people, yes, but not everyone. So keep changing jobs until you find one you like with people you can work with. As much as that doesn't make for such a nice looking resume, who cares? If that's what it takes is trial and error to find where you fit in, then keep trying and keep m...

I'd never made the connection between ASD and these types of people before. Interesting thread, glad I clicked. And no, I'm not really one of any of these things. I suppose the only one I could partly identify with would be the starseed/indigo sort of concept as I do find that stuff rather fascinati...

Many people can and do tolerate differences. We also have to make an effort to try to fit in. Our struggles are so similar to new immigrants who don't speak the language or know the culture.. yet they've got to just try their best to fit in and find employment in a new economy, because if they don't...

If an aspie gets a job in an area of interest there is a real risk that they will overwork, and be exploited because they like it so much! So work at it until you have the capital to be self employed in the same field.. problem solved. That's sort of the short version of my long term career objecti...

More specifically it's a Mental Health issue. Depending on how she said it, she may have been being rude, but more likely she was just being matter of fact and using "approved," language to maintain some level of professionalism and political correctness. Maybe she assumes you're lower functioning t...

Try the line "what's your sign?" That will instantly open up a conversation about personality types and something that is interesting to girls. Plus you'll know if she's a nutjob that believes in Astrology.. Ah, you have so much to learn, young Aspie.. I've been a very scientific mathematical analy...

I've had many, so keeping them I'm not exactly an expert on. :lol: I have had a couple that have lasted about 5 years, but, mind you at that point in those jobs it's time to move on and find something better (paying) anyways no matter who you are. I've gotten jobs the same way as anyone else... appl...

There does need to be more awareness (among NT's, not us): awareness that the negative stereotypes they've heard don't represent us, that we are real people with minds and feelings, that we aren't fakers or sociopaths, and they aren't doing the world a favor by bullying us. That's a part of why I d...

Although I love learning about the brain, concordant with a previous poster, I worry about the social implications of how the government would use the information. Also, I really think we should be working on reducing the massive deficit so that we can all continue to have affordable food on our ta...

My brother went through a divorce last year & IMO moved onto another relationship far too quickly. I have no problem with his new girl, I just think they moved things along at far too quick a pace and now have to sort things out better. IMO, if you see other people - just see them. Don't move in...

First off to be addressed: I am as of to-day 15. I ask such questions merely because that is what I ponder. I don't care about swag or what-not. I think about things beyond my age simply because I do. I listed thirty-two probably to exclude prejudice toward my age; I cannot recall. I, personally, n...

I live in Canada's other city. I'm basically rebooting my life as well, but have family support for now. I, too, figured out my own AS 6 months ago.. just after I turned 30, so you have a 4 year head start on me - which is long enough to complete a University education. I don't know what the average...

My thoughts are that it's caused more by co-existing ADHD symptoms, or that the same symptoms in AS are caused by the same dopamine deficiency that causes them in ADHD. Poor coordination, poor motor skills, fatiguing easily etc = not doing a lot of physical activity & thus not building muscle ma...

I'd bet $ on salicylate sensitivity. Guess what it causes/amplifies? AS, BP, IBS/colitis & plenty more. I've read that 60% of AS/ADHD brained people are gluten (from grains) & casein (from dairy) intolerant and 75% are salicylate acid sensitive. I have all 3 & more. Read up on eliminatin...

You could always do one, &/or the other, or both at the same time, and then bounce.

I mean, if you're going to burn bridges you may as well do it right and burn 'em right to the ground. :lol:

It's an option.. just sayin'. :P
