Astute observation. yes, that is apparent with quite a few on WP. So do you think the solution would be to try not to become triggered by various phrases and instead observe and enquire into what is happening in oneself or rather to try to get other people not to say this kind of thing, even if it ...

How do I not show nerves? The normal people don't, so I must not either, Sure "normal" people show nerves at job interviews. As far as their mind games, they have their agenda and you have yours which is do not say anything bad about former employers, give specific examples of how you helped former...

For today just try and focus on the interview and not the potential move. If you get the position then you can ask for help for specific moving issues as they arise. With 80,000 members I am pretty sure somebody has dealt with whatever issue will come up.

Good Luck

ASPartOfMe - Thanks so much for pointing out that Tania does online assessments! I will definitely email her to enquire. I have been to my GP to ask about a referral for an assessment for autism, and he has referred me to a psychiatrist who he says may know where to refer me. However I wanted a bac...

I agree with Helen Croydon's opinion Most accept that people have strengths and weaknesses. If you are not a good athlete or actor that is ok. But if you never marry that is unacceptable. The failure, misery and violence in so many marriages is great evidence that a lot of people suck at it and shou...

Keep in mind that some posts are people venting out years or even decades of negative experiences and emotions and it can look really ugly. Don't take it personally and do it yourself if you need to.

Undo your writing training and be very literal.

the 'autistics are superior' mentality? I mean come on people if our messege is autistics are better and that we wish everyone's brains worked like ours or that we're too 'cool', 'awesome' ect to be neurotypical.... I take this attitude with tongue planted firmly in cheek. On one hand, yes, I am sm...

From my observations: There are approximately 20 or 30 I hate my autism type posts for every we are awesome type posts lately here. It was different when I joined here August 2013. In the blogosphere the vast majority Aspies superior/elitist type blogs were from a few years ago. I can not remember s...

And I am not really saying everyone is autistic when I say everyone is kind of autistic...maybe that was not so well phrased, though, especially in this context.... I would not disagree that a lot of the neuromajority might have some Autistic traits. The problem is the phrase "Everybody is a little...

Most of your symptoms are better explained by social phobia. Seeking professional diagnosis is probably more useful than asking us, though :) Hope it goes well. Professional diagnosis by an autism specialist is preferred. In the last paragraph the OP is describing repetitive routines, and a possibl...

asperger is autism, yeah. but mild and with no speech delay, so it goes undiagnosed very often, which is very bad for the person who doesnt know what's going on, and why he's so different than other people. the spectrum is wide, and asperger is a part of it. of course it is autism. She is undiagnos...

hopefuly the ICD will be following suit next year,]. :P ICD 11 release has been moved back to 2017 http://www.who.int/classifications/icd/factsheet/en/. I would be shocked if Aspergers is in there. They like to keep some similarity with the DSM to avoid confusion. While in my very small minority vi...

I thought people were saying ASD because that is what autism is now called in DSM-5.


You are right. ASD is an abbreviation for "Autism Spectrum Disorders"

Call it a variant, call it a subcategory Aspergers was always an Autism Spectrum disorder/condition. It said that in pretty much every definition written during the DSM 4 era. The only ones who disagreed in the community are supremacists deniers. So now what I am noticing is that some people instead...

Now this thread is my personal opinion feel free to disagree but I believe it from I that I have learned. Aspergers is not related to autism Aspergers is autism end of story. Agree Like the term Autism Aspergers Syndrome does not have a very nice ring to it that is why the cute name Aspie was dream...

I was not convinced I would get a Aspergers diagnosis until I got a Aspergers diagnosis. I treated it like I treated every emotion prior to my diagnosis. Be a pessimistic as possible so the blow would not be as bad. Suppress and Suppress myself into emotional numbness. While I researched Aspergers p...
