Its defenintly harder in the 21st century for independant living than it was back in the 80's. would u not agree? Yes, but mostly due to finances & economics. Costs have soared while wages have not, so it's a lot more challenging to earn enough money to get by (or better yet, thrive.) than it's...

There's a whole thread about Autism Speaks right now that can probably explain the whole controversy better than I can. In a nutshell, they focus on prenatal testing and portray us as having lives that are not worth living. Ah, I see. F those guys then. Trying to get rid of the Howard Roarks of thi...

Hop on a bike and go for a leg spin instead. So long as you're pedalling in the opposite direction of your head spin, it'll completely unwind your mind. :P

I've never used Meetup.com for anything and only vaguely remember hearing of it before. It may just be that that particular website just isn't popular here among any circles. I know I sound like a broken record about this stuff, but I truly believe there are simply so many of us here and so many peo...

Positive. I don't care what label I'm given with an official diagnosis, I know myself and know how well I do or don't function, what my strengths/weaknesses and challenges are and so forth, so being lumped in with higher or lower functioning people isn't going to change my perception of my own capab...

My best way: Go visit one of my closest friends &/or their families. There are only a few people in my life that can make me feel completely calm & tranquil even if I'm EXTREMELY stressed. If I can't go see them, I'll phone. If I can't phone, I'll text. If none of them above are options, I'l...

This thread makes me want to put the 16GB microSD card in my Blackberry and go take a video tour of a bunch of different parts of town so I can show you the diversity of the city & it's people, but also that an Aspie can go around filming everyone & everything w/o so much as a single person ...

Just figured I'd throw some gasoline on the fire and share the insights of the most nympho NT person I know.. he would wonder why anyone thought there was something wrong with them for being horny and getting laid as much as they possibly can in life, as that's one of the main things he's lived for ...

@TheBlueEyedAlien: *golf clap* http://www.deviantart.com/download/4496483/Tennis_Clap_emoticon.gif Excellent post. Especially for being 16. It's very true what they say about us Aspies being intellectually precocious. The only thing I want to point out to you is that while you're bang on, you've got...

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...
