I got DXed at 20. For me it was a great thing. I was able to make sense of a lot of my childhood. The social isolation, the I.E.P group I was in, the special high school I went to. When I was a kid I was DXed with Dyslexia, but when my sister was DXed with moderate Autism we realized I had more then...

Autism speaks doesn't help to give Autistics a voice. They push us aside when we want to speak and say "Hey everybody! Check it out! Come feel sorry for this retard over here who can't even speak for them self."

Actually in the Japanese culture people don't often look at someone's eyes while they're talking. Eye contact is more a western thing that is overrated. In they're culture for some situations you are actually encouraged not to make eye contact.

I'm 21 and I don't usually sleep with stuffed animals, but if I'm feeling particularly depressed then I grabbed my Stitch doll (from Lilo and Stitch) and I cuddle with it. I would prefer cuddling with my girlfriend though. That is so awesome I'm 20 and I still have my fav stuffed animal!! ! And I l...

I had to quit a job I had for 2years because of that. It's one of the reasons I was DXed. I was also really lucky with my new job because the new people were tolerant of my social dysfunction after I explained the dynamics of my disabilities to them. A good example is at first my new boss was angry ...

Self respect is what's keeping me alive. Before I found out I had AS I thought I was worthless because I didn't have many friends and it was always hard keeping a job, and gaining respect from my family. Now that I know I have AS I can also acknowledge that I can use different parts of my brain in w...

Tomorrow I meet with my psych nurse. I saw her a week and a half ago and mentioned Asperger's and she said that she had worked with boys with Asperger's and I didn't seem to act like them. I got nervous and clammed up and when she offered to bring it to the psychiatrist I sometimes see I said no. I...
