I just stay away. I live with my parents and will be spending all day tomorrow locked in the basement. Things get unbearably loud when my mom's family shows up (they talk OVER each other instead of waiting for turns in conversation). I usually end up slamming my head against walls until they leave. ...

Depression gets thrown around A LOT and it sucks because the people who really are depressed then get sort of brushed aside because people get convinced that depression isn't a valid mental illness because its so overdiagnosed. I was hospitalized recently after having severe panic attacks. The diagn...

The book where its referenced in every chapter (pretty much) is The Genesis of Artistic Creativity (can't remember the author and don't feel like looking it up) which basically makes assumptions about people like Lewis Carroll, Beethoven, Arthur Conan Doyle, etc. that they all had aspergers and one ...

I've seen it mentioned in books but can't find it on wikipedia. This... wouldn't happen to explain why I refuse to revise anything my poetry profs suggests, would it?

Is there nothing on here that alerts you when you have a PM?

I guess going for an hour without answering one, when you weren't aware you had one, makes you a jerk. :roll:

I just take topamax and keppra for my epilepsy, nothing for my AS. ...probably because I think I'd be kind of offended if a doctor said "and this will work on your AS!" *huge used car salesman grin* rather than something like a specific symptom like my lack of interest in people (which doesn't bothe...

*takes test* *sees that you have to register to get the result* My guess is "Not a gullible twit"? Then again, I took the test assuming they *wouldn't* ask me to register. Quite the conundrum. I gave them bogus info and got revolutionary. <center><a href="http://www.testriffic.com/personality/person...

I never thought about Neville before, but now that you mention herbology, it makes sense. He's shy, doesn't stick up for himself, easily bullied, and he knows everything about that one subject. Interesting.

Can you do that without a college degree? I get the feeling that without a degree, I'm pretty much sunk. Also, I live in a fairly small town and don't know of any places like that (although I'm quite keen on moving... even out of the country... although lack of a degree would definitely put me on a ...

They think I'm closeted. Even my 12 year old NT female cousins bring dates, but I never have. I probably wouldn't even if I did have a boyfriend just because... I don't know. That's just more smalltalk. Aunt so and so: Oh! So how did you two meet! Me (trying to get away): Uh... nice seeing you...

This is so bizarre, but accents. Men speaking with any kind of Australian or Scottish accent can pretty much make up for most other faults in appearance. But on the other hand, having the wrong accent can really get on my nerves. I couldn't stand watching most of the debates this political season ju...

I think a lot of people in my family probably think I'm a lesbian just because they see me at events where you bring a date and I never have one. I don't actually care because they're not (as far as I know) homophobic and wouldn't treat me poorly even if I were a lesbian, but it's a bit awkward beca...

I don't see how it could possibly feel good. I've heard girls say that they get some residual feeling against their clits or whatever, but seriously... what's the point?

I don't think it would necessarily hurt, just that it would be really uncomfortable and pointless.

I could do law if it wasn't trial law. I'm a bit worried about finding work since how many lawyers are we churning out every year? I was going to do some sort of pro-bono human rights thing.
