I have to agree. I lived in a fantasy land highly based off my obsessions. It took me a long time to grow out of it too, even now I like to think about living a different life deeply engaging a personal interest. Day dreaming relaxes me.

Hey there I was wondering if anyone else goes through this. Life for me was much worse before my DX when friends and family couldn't understand how I communicate or feel about the world. I know that legally I don't really have to disclose my diagnosis to anyone, but I've noticed that disclosing it h...

Awwwe welcome to WP I'm sure your posts will be helpful here. I have two cats that help me deal with stress too. Only in recent years has AS become a more prevalent DX. A lot of older people have gone without being DXed or given psychiatric DXes instead. You could have it or both, if you find stuff ...

I'm pretty temperature sensitive, too, which doesn't help the air conditioning bill in the summer here in Austin, Texas, where it can get up to 108 F. Sometimes I can make it with 2 blankets in the summer. People are always asking me in the summer, "If you are hot, why do you need those blankets?" ...

I also didn't have a good time on the stuff. I'm actually quite surprised how often people bring it up on here. It's not often discussed in a positive light either.

That sounds incredibly scary. I hope you don't have a neurodegenerative disease. That would be just awful. Have they already ruled out MS and narcolepsy?

Hey there I don't live in LA, but what you've described has always been a major problem for me. Since receiving an AS DX within the last couple years I've done so much better in regards to your concerns. If your interested in knowing some of my personal coping strategies feel free to PM me.

As I've became more social, I've become more tolerant of "hipsters". But nerds or Aspies probably have fun doing stupid/wierd things as much as "hipsters" because they enjoy it. Hipsters may speak in slang, whereas Aspies may speak in rarely used (sometimes superficially relevent) pretentious words...

I knew when I was 6 that I was different. I was DXed with learning disabilities at age 8. Around 11 I realized I was BP. My grandpa had BP so I was ashamed that I had anything in common with that. In high school I definitely knew and pretty much excepted it but I didn't seek a DX because I didn't kn...

Me too. I do lots of cosplay too. I also go to cons, and have entered some cosplay competitions that involved some level of role play.

I used to do that too - write pages and pages of tightly condensed script about my current situation, but I eventually gave up as none of the psychiatrists did more than skim it at best (reading it in full wouldn't fit into their allotted hour/30 minute session with me :/). Same that's the most dev...

These replies have been really interesting, as I have felt this way also, and have never spoken to anyone about it because I thought it was just me, and a deficiency in my character. This may be the case, and something I need to work on, but it is comforting to know I am not the only one who has th...
