My self harm peaked in my 20s (cutting, head banging - the latter I didn't remember until I read your post) and has lessened since then. A doctor pissed me off (purposely!) and proved that if I can place my anger outside myself I will not hurt myself (he dared me). My problem for me is when folks (m...

Given I was an "odd" child and my niece was DX'd HFA years ago, I kept an eye on my kids. In the meantime, I applied typical parenting techniques - adjusting for individual needs, e.g. teaching my non-expressive/responsive daughter basic social skills. At 2 my daughter showed some signs. A...

@Mountain Goat, how to know? I have little idea as to when to assert myself and when to stay quiet so I am not foolish. I have those smiley bosses who say how wonderful I am and how wanted I am (as long as I remain marginalized) and then exclude me from most everything (and mock me) and if pressed t...

Perhaps before you found folks more like you (or otherwise inclusive) - school size small or large? And now you can't find folks in your current community? I was without friends in my new hometown until -ironically- a life hardship brought me into contact with LOTS of people (multiple support groups...

No advice, just commiserating. I am also being bullied, albeit by 50-year old men (both in my management chain). I am writing it all down (which is unpleasant since I don't like experiencing it much less reviewing the situation or transcribing it), I have already gone to HR (which dismissed my conce...

Ah, pros and cons. No to little wait here, but I will PAY (high deductible insurance). It's like you are in ASD gestation.

Four people at my office (out of 100) are using cubicle shade leaves. Easy to google. Previously folks would have bulbs removed.

I have a passion for puzzles (mazes and jigsaws as a child) and presentation (theater scripts). I puzzle and present at work (network design) --- but come to find out I enjoy the strategic part of it and my new management is saying that doesn't fit any more on our team --- and hence I find that I do...

I just read a book about a company without Bureaucracy. The CEO says he formed the company because the bureaucratic company he was at wasn't inclusive. Then he notes the irony when one (of 100s) of employees is let go (excluded) from his company because the employee demanded more bureaucracy. So the...

Mountain Goat, that reminds me that I don't know how to answer test question "do you have a hard time crying" b/c I cry all the time when talking about minor personal issues, news, books, movies --- but when I have significant personal loss, I can't cry (even when I want to) - numb, shut d...

How's it going for you? I'm at the onset of diagnosis and 20 yrs younger, but am bringing along my 70-some year mother for the ride... she says HFA is obvious in me and I can say the same about her. This apple likely didn't fall far from her tree. :wink: Hope this discovery helps us smooth some of t...

I am joining this group b/c of this post. I was looking for this subject. My high sensitivity extends beyond the five senses to emotions. I scored a 90% on facial and vocal recognition on the aspietests. I am "too" expressive. For EQ I score average 50% --- near 100% on knowing what to do ...
