 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Misinterpretation of facial expressions - a 2 way thing?

I think it is. I think I often appear angry or at least uncomfortable in my facial expression. I squint and furrow my brow unconsciously, partly because the light is hurting my eyes. In terms of reading others expressions I think a lot of it is because I'm not looking at their face. I can usually re...

I've done full doses several times, and tried daily microdoses over a period of a few months. With the full doses, I've had good experiences and not-so-good ones, but nothing truly nightmarish. I find setting to be extremely important. If I can be outside, on a bright day, with the freedom to roam a...

I genuinely have no idea. But I feel like if I were on either extreme I'd probably know about it so a process of elimination suggests average.

If the girl is sincere in wanting to help her client feel supported, listened to and comfortable then she develops a form of empathy/rapport with the client which is no different to a life coach, mentor or therapist, Well that precisely illustrates what I mean about the fundamental misunderstanding...

In my mind this type of service would be subject to market forces. Girls who provide crap service don't get re-hired and could be rated like Uber drivers to protect male customers. This would (over time) improve the services so that the demand increases. it's safe and (in my view) no less professio...

In defense of keto, here's my personal experience with it (which was what was requested). I've eaten keto for most of the last 3 years. I became interested because I had cancer and I read somewhere it helps by restricting the glucose that cancerous cells need to replicate. I'm not a scientist, I kno...

I'm trying to remember myself at 18 and whether I would have appeared to my parents to have any interests or motivation. Probably not. Would he be interested in making movies, if he likes cinema? There's quite a lot of technical aspects within that for aspies for geek out on. And you can do it solo ...

When I look back, it seems like I miss pretty much everything about the 90s. But specifically: 1. I didn't believe the world was doomed back then. I do now and I wish I didn't. 2. It was the only time in my life when the UK has not had a right-wing Conservative government. It wasn't perfect, but it ...

The second is not available from a prostitute at any price, nor is it satiated by masturbation. This is the one that eats away at us if our isolation is not self-imposed and makes us start to wonder if having some casual sex (because that seems like the easier problem to solve) would help. It doesn...

I've used bitcoin to buy stuff online. I don't like it due to it's terrible environmental impact. But like everyone, I wish I'd bought a few 10 years ago. There are so many coins now. I think any 'get rich quick' opportunities have probably passed us by but I like the idea of decentralised money in ...

It's a spectrum disorder. That means that everyone you treat is going to have different problems/needs. Profitable healthcare treatments need to be standardised, either in a medicine or a process. Otherwise the costs are astronomical. In countries where we have state funded healthcare, there's a bit...

It's just experience. When something goes wrong with my computer, I research the symptoms until I figure out the problem then find a resource for how to fix it. I did this for years before I got a job in IT support - no qualification just experience. A 1st line support job is also a good way to lear...

As the father of a 7 year old, this subject worries me. I watched my sisters and our father grow apart as they grew older and I don't want that for us, but I wonder how much control I have over it. I'm getting my daughter assessed for ASD. She's never been 'huggy'. She's never come to me or my partn...

I think it's really important to separate in your mind the act of sexual intercourse (which is a physical compulsion hard-wired into you to ensure the survival of the species) from intimate connection with another human being (which is an emotional need). The first you can get from a prostitute. And...

A friend is someone who enjoys your company enough to occasionally seek it. This is also the definition I use. It's how I know I don't have any friends. I will make contact with others and they will usually respond, but no one ever initiates contact with me. As others have noted it isn't a complete...
