I am a 40yo male diagnosed with level 1 autism but my therapist thinks it’s Aspergers I agree.

I have trouble in conversations with my short-term memory and if I am stressed I don’t seem to be able to listen to anything even if I am focused on the speaker. I’ve listened to recordings of myself when stressed and it boggles me how I don’t understand the speaker. For the speaker, say my partner, it’s like talking to a wall and aggravating.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I'm sure I read this same thread in the general autism discussion?

Guilty as charged. I posted it and then thought I should post in love and dating too.
