Asperger's & Autism Forum
I live with this parent because I don't feel like delivering pizzas or washing dishes to stay alive and I don't want to be a cam girl. I am stressed out and I legitimately need help. It's totally toxic and I don't trust a word they say. How in god's name do I get out of this?!?! I have untold amounts of emotional pain because of this garbage.
Is it part of being on the spectrum? There is a occasional friend- and l have always felt very emotionally pulled and pushed. He maybe on the spectrum also. Yes, l really like him, and yes, l try to emotionally pull back but it has zero effect for me.
It was like this even before we met face to face. I was already somehow dialed into him. I have even left my car door open, after seeing him. We don't discuss much about this but l finally told him to please talk in gentle way because my plate is full of too many not great feelings about where l live.
Guess l feel stung, like how can someone have such an effect? I am a very logical human being.
Do you deal with someone who leaves you in this state? Is it a good relationship? Are relationships on the spectrum wrought with emotional landmines because of so much sensitivity between the two? It's like the very good of it is also the very bad of it sometimes.
I never did well in school. I use to study for hours and still fail tests. This was even with tutoring. I did poorly in reading comprehension and math tests.
I was told by teachers that I had a learning disability in middle school and High School but never got the help.
I did pass high school with mostly C average with a few D in math, English. What made me get a C in classes like Science was failing most of the tests but doing much extra credit. I even cheated on my midterms my junior year which was easy taking the make up tests by myself using my notes, textbooks and felt no guilt.
In college with D's, F's. Even in an world music class which I loved, took again in the summer, teacher had pity on my and gave me a D. I also had a bunch of incompletes I was told again I had a learning disability and was recommended by the dean to drop out After dropping out that was the end of my higher education.
Many years now with not working I still have much difficulty comprehension. I...
I live in an apartment and have enjoyed it for the most part, but there is one issue with the person who lives below me. The person is mostly quiet but once a day, there is a slam that is so loud I almost think it is intentional. I am unsure if this would qualify as something where I could file a noise complaint with management as it is only once, but extremely loud. I do not wish to confront the person as I have left a note asking politely not to make such a loud slam and that worked for a week. What are some suggestions others may have to deal with noise issues?
I personally like to be alone or in crowds..seems contrary huh?
& very rarely, the few close friends I've had since childhood.
But in a way, being in crowds is like being alone with the extra perk of anonymous company when I need a bit more, without the hassle of my friends expectations.
So what's kinds of situations do you find most agreeable?
Can someone advise me on choosing an inverter? I have a 650 watt refrigerator and I need to keep it running when the power goes out. I have two 60Ah 12 deep cycle batteries and I am looking at a 2200 watt true sine wave inverter on Amazon. I cannot afford to make a mistake so would someone help and tell me if this would work? I am going to try and include the link to it, I am not sure it it will post.
This is something I have been worried about for a long time and have worked very hard on. Today the wheelchair repair technician came and installed two new batteries. I kept the old ones which I think are working at at least 75% capacity. Saving money using these, I want to get an inverter. I am also interested in knowing if my plan is a good one or needs to change. Here is the link, thank you very much.
We are located in Germany, where, due to the corona virus pandemic, majority of external facilities are closed. I discussed that with my AS partner and it seems that he is not dealing with the situation too well...His daily routine is interrupted completely (he was always following the same schedule, going to work in the morning, then either going to the gym, every second day or meeting his friends after work). I tried to understand how this "lockdown" would influence him, asking if he can replace gym with running for example, and his reply was somehow suggesting that it's much more complex problem, than I anticipated. He cannot go to work, as his working place is closed for 2 weeks. He cannot go to the gym and he can hardly meet any friends.
He replied "I have to go! It is not good for me to do nothing...I can have a weekend of not doing anything, but then I really fast go into very bad mood. I need a reason in order to get up everyday!".
Since two days he is very quiet, going...
While I hope this coronavirus pandemic ends soon, I would like to know, besides carrot cake, what would be good types of cake or cupcakes to make for Easter either this year or for the future. I always do red velvet for Christmas and strawberry for Valentine's Day, and for the first time I did a green velvet recipe for St. Patrick's Day.
I do have a box of Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Triple Fudge that I thought about making cupcakes topping them with Pillsbury chocolate frosting and Whoppers Robin Eggs. However, the coronavirus pandemic might prevent that from happening this year, so if I can't do it this year, for future reference, what would be some ideas, besides carrot cake?
I'm going to send an email to query if I can use headphones at work to block out conversations and sounds that I'm finding increasingly distracting and stressful.
Multiple times a day I feel overwhelmed and stare blankly at the screen simply trying to block out the sounds that are causing an intense amount of frustration as I try to block them out.
Do you think the tone/detail of this email is suitable. I had worn headphones in my first few weeks here until I was told I wasn't allowed to anymore:
I wanted to query whether or not you could accommodate be using in ear headphones at work. I'm finding a lot of noises and conversations causing distress at work and it's affecting my work productivity. I wasn't sure if this would be a possibility? The sound sensitivity is something I've been discussing with my therapist and she recommended asking if in ear headphones would be a possibility to help block out the noise.
My previous 2 jobs had allowed this and I found it helped...
So I was a seasonal employee last summer at this zoo. I left for the fall and winter because I had to focus on college work. And reapplied for the same posistion for the summer season. However to my suprise I was denied.
Now I can't figure out why I was denied despite working there with no real issues last summer. (i have aspergers so it's hard for me to read situations and so forth but quite a bit of my coworkers told me I was the hardest worker there and was told I do a very good job.
I was the first one at the first job fair to reapply. So it was impossible to fill up quick. And my friend and coworker was shocked I was denied as well as my whole family.
Does anyone know why I was denied to work there again or have any idea? Also anyone else on the spectrum relate to this? I do know my boss knew I had aspergers so my biggest fear that it had something to do with it.
