Best of luck with your appointment. I hope it will be helpful to you. Sometimes it helps just for your own emotional stability. It kind of like gives you a platform to work with. But even if they can't give you an exact label, you still have your struggles and you should still acknowledge them and d...

I was but so was everyone else in my family. I have recently heard that they have found that the supposed correlation between vaccines and autism/asd is not true. I don't know one way or the other if it is but I know a whole lot of people who were vaccinated and don't have a trace of either one.

Your friends who say that obviously have their heads up their arses. Why would the ability to place your fingers on a keyboard be related to an aptitude for math? Its no more related to math ability than being court stenographer who can rapidly place his/her fingers on a keyboard typing a court tra...

I started playing piano when I was three. I am not a great piano player by any means. I can pick up just about any piece of music and given enough time I can learn it though. And I am good at music theory and even majored in music and always did very well in theory classes. And even though music the...

I like non-sexual affection (though I do like sexual affection equally), but not so much contact expressing it. I guess it depends on the context. For me, I like that kind of affection when it's something no one has to show or discusses. It's just something one can sense. There's something about th...

It's definitely a very individual thing and can really vary depending on energy levels and all kinds of factors. But it's a part of who we are and we do our best to handle it..

Personally I feel it's a shame that; either people are lovers or friends without much in between. I've heard in edwardian times it was normal for friends to share a bed and even cuddle. There are reports of strait married males cuddling in bed because that's just what humans like to do. Whilst I'm ...

I have always had a very vivid imagination and I spent a lot of time alone as a kid and I played pretend all the time. In fact I still do. I have not been officially diagnosed but I fit so well in this forum and I have been unofficially diagnosed by someone who works very closely everyday with the A...

I have wanted to throw and smash and kick things too. But I don't. I punch pillows instead. That way I don't break my stuff or hurt anyone or do something I will regret or that will land me in jail or in the hospital. You can try to channel your outbursts and have a bunch of pillows that you can kic...

Sometimes. I find myself laughing at stuff but a lot of times it's like laughing like a little kid would. Like if I am skiing sometimes I just burst out laughing and squealing. It's not even controlled, it just happens because I am having so much fun. I did that once particularly loudly and I had to...

I think meltdowns can vary by person. I work with kids on the spectrum so besides my own and other adults I know who have ASD, I've seen a few. In my work I do refer to them as meltdowns rather than tantrums so parents understand that there is a difference. A tantrum is a behavior kids use to manip...

I have issues with I guess it's more time continuum than space. What I mean is that sometimes something can happen now and I don't feel a response or an immediate affect to it even though I am aware of it. I might feel a little something but sometimes it won't be until much later that I really regis...
