When you are having a stroke and your first thought is not I might be paralyzed, I might not speak again but this is going too be to much change for me to handle.

1).When someone knocks at the door and you freeze in fear hoping they cant hear you, and stay motionless in case you cast a shadow across the door well, and just hope they go away.. Then feel bad, because you wander who it was!

2)You get so engrossed on a subject thinking that only an hour has gone by and its 6.30 am in the morning and the birds have started tweeting!

3) You laugh at someones comment only to be told they were being serious.

4) Your next to a random stranger in a que and ask them when they are due, only to be told she wasn't pregnant!

5) Again when in a que or people close by have their clothes tag hanging out, you just want to tuck it back in or rip it off, but have to use all the will power to not do it, but then the bloody tag is on your mind till they go away! Then you wander if they realized it was out and tucked it back in!

6) When you give a simple instruction to your crew of 12 and they all give you a blank look!

7) When you get ready to go out then when you reach the door the fear suddenly hits you and you go back to researching the origins of certain minerals.

8 ) When (if) you get a phone call to go round to a pot luck, and your first thought is 40 people in the same room all giving off different energies and an intense feel of panic/anxiety/fear... so decide to stay in and study minerals!

9) When someone is attracted to you and you don't realize it till their tongue is halfway down your throat and your first thought wanders if she is into Quantum theory and talking about existence in its entirety!

10) When a qualified engineer has a technical issue they cant solve and you have no experience in that area whatsoever and manage to solve the issue mentally for them.

11) When you have had the same cd playing in the car player for 8+months.

12) When you look for an engagement ring you also learn the gold composition, the grading of the diamonds, the geology of the minerals, the''re locations, how diamonds are cut/formed, how gold/diamonds are extracted from the rock, how they are found, mining of the minerals, studying mining maps etc etc

13) When in a large group of people you suddenly freeze, cant say a word, sweat, tremble, and want to get the hell out of there but you cant as you cant move..

14) When walking you are consciously thinking of one foot moving in front of the other and taking in your entire surrounding constantly.

15) When people ask if you are stoned all the time because of the glazed eyes and you a certainly not.

16) When you talk about an interest and within 20 seconds you have hypnotized them or they drift off or they turn away..

17) when sitting on a park bench and someone sits next to you, you freeze wandering if you should say something, then (b.)spend the entire time wandering how to deal with the situation and hope they will leave soon...

18) When sitting on a park bench and someone sits next to you and starts talking to you... Consult 17 (b.)

19) When someone asks , ""How you are doing?"", and you tell them the truth!

20) etc. etc. etc.

21) When you act childish but don't care if people notice.
22) If you dance in the grocery store when you find your favourite food
23) If you are literal minded and take things at face value
24) If you are obsessed with fantasy/sci-fi/fairy tales/any random thing under the sun and moon [or including the sun and moon]
25) If you make your bedroom into your own little personal hideaway nest

You get so absorbed in your special interest that you don't notice that the house is on fire.

If you're sitting just talking to one person, that's okay. As soon as more people arrive it's time for you to disappear.

"You know you’re an aspie if,"

I agree with your point about sports. However, does it always stay like that and co ordination gets worse or do average mental capabilities improve unless you have acute anxiety attacks etc. that debilitate you?
I understand the concept of religion, more than driving because of motor and spatial difficulties.
Reading as an imaginary resource is useful if you have a strong visual field which some milder Aspieminds do.

Also, there is a lot of similarities between NVLD and As, as both are on the mild end of the autism spectrum.
But I often think aspies are in a mind of their own just as autistics have that same habit.
They often can’t control outbursts whereby an aspie, will drawl until withdrawing from conversation that doesn’t interest them. I’m describing obsessive interests that pull you away from socialising normally and publicly with others.
Most only trust their very nearest and dearest, and autistics tend to be slightly more naïve and gullible.
Not that it has any bearing on who does what with their life.

Perhaps you have to learn to curb some of your own endearments before you calve yourself off to the many
so called treatment services that ‘listen’ to people. Not that learning about others with different conditions is an issue health practices.

In my country, the help with social care is getting worse, what with the under funding on care services, I.e. daycentres and paying carer s enough money, which the N.HS are constantly getting short circuited by.
Parents are normally not aware of the impact of social exclusion when the help to access these services whether on the phone or in person, are not made available.

If you dance around or sing for no apparent reason.
If you have fantasy and fantasy rpg pictures on your bedroom walls.
If you are obsessed with something to the point where you almost forget to eat or sleep.
If you have a peculiar way of communicating and/or an unusual vocabulary.

...if you're told you are rude because you simply say what comes to mind.
...when you realize someone was being sarcastic, only when you replay the conversation in your mind hours later as you're lying in bed. Then you panic because you finally understand, and think of all the ways you wish you could have responded instead of sounding like Spock.
...if you have a meltdown in Lowe's because there are simply too many options.
...if you rejoice when your town freezes over because you don't have to leave your house for days on end.
...if you're relieved that a social plan gets cancelled. But only relieved if it's long enough in advance so that you can readjust to the change after prepping for it for so long.
...if you've given up on trying to explain how your mind works, because it's just not worth it.

If you follow groups of people around, trying to befriend them, and you creep them out.
