I want to be able to have friends since i don't got any of those and the first step (after admitting my errors) is to learn body language but idk how. i tried looking it up on the internet but i got stressed out and ended up panicking and closing the tab. so how should i learn to read body language (and i may need to learn to socialize)?
Hello. I'm new here. I've read the forums many times during bad bouts with my partner, but today I finally decided I need to stop fooling myself and accept that this is real and that I need real help and perspective. My story and questions are intricate, so I think I'm going to post in a few different sections regarding different parts of my story. This post is not brief....but, this is where I am having the most difficulty.
My partner of 8 years (this Tuesday, actually) and I fell in love hard and it started with passion and a sweet vulnerability; but we always had misunderstandings and moments where he would shut me out for days. While we were dating I had a higher title/salary than him, and I like being generous with those I love, so I used to always contribute more (or pay for all) of our outings or trips. But, always thought, one day I may need help, or be making less and that he would return that generosity.
It wasn't until I was newly pregnant and we were moving in to a...
Everyone I know has decided to run with the herd and I can't say I blame them. Of course, I wish they understood or even wanted to understand but of course they don't.
I have learned a lot from these experiences.
I run every day. I eat healthy. I try to remind people that I am still partially insane from pharmaceutical drugs and to please understand, that will change with time.
I feel like our society is being degraded. People are becoming more shallow. More herd-like and mindless.
Is anyone ever going to understand me?
I know some people do, but in real life will anyone understand or care to?
From you-all's experience, does anyone understand you?
I wish I had access to this mythical place where women want to know what makes this aspie guy tick. People just laugh at me and I get it, they suck, too. Their lives suck bad enough they want to pick on an autistic person.
My Graduation is on Monday, I will not be going because the flights are too expensive, and the ferry is expensive.
So, I am finished University now. I have applied for a few jobs so far, with one Assessment Day, and an Online Interview for my dream job today, so I am making efforts to do things.
However, meanwhile i'm stuck in my house doing absolutely nothing every single day. I don't have a car to drive, my Sister works every single day up to 9pm (out of boredom).
She is my only source of going anywhere. My father will not take me anywhere and my mother will not either, beyond 9pm.
So, as I said I am completely housebound for weeks on end. I have ordered a car, but it will not be coming until September when we leave for Portugal. This means that I will not really have a car until October.
Basically, I am relying on the generosity of my sister, or indeed her willingness to take me places. However, that willingness is not always there.
Today for example, my parents and...
I made a NT (neuro typical) friend recently and I'd like to actually keep them (unlike all my other NT friends). So how do I do that? They also dont know about my mental health all the way (at least not the autism and possible DID and possible ADHD) but should I tell them? main thing is how do I keep a NT friend. This one seems very accepting so I probably could tell them about my mental health but people seem to think I'm to direct and I'm not sure how to do that and I'm not sure what else I do that people dont like.
Haven't been on here in a while. Hope all are well!
I was hoping you could enlighten me on something. Are there specific triggers that make you anger quickly? Are there triggers that are common amongst people on the spectrum?
I ask because my bf has a short fuse which I suspect is somewhat related to his aspie traits. He's becoming more open about himself, but he has a hard time answering open-ended questions. Plus, I think at 52 years old, he's just starting to learn about himself, so doesn't always know how to answer my questions.
Hunger seems to be a big one (I think this is true of NT's too). One other he told me is getting lost. We were in Mexico with a rental car and couldn't find our way back to the agency. He became so irritable, cursing and getting agitated. He later told me he gets extremely stressed when he gets lost. Could that be due to feeling overwhelmed when someone unexpected happens?
Another trigger seems to be traffic in general (if he's...
The DSM replaced such terms such as "aspergers syndrome" and "high functioning autism" with better terms such as Autism levels 1-3 yet I still see people using terms like "aspie" regardless. Why hasn't Autism level 1 been used as much by the general public? "Aspie is totally dated anyways.
