Asperger's & Autism Forum
This one time in high school (either 9th or 10th grade), my history teacher caught me playing with a Rubiks Cube and confiscated it. This did not sit well with me. He didn't give it back to me at the end of class and gave no hint as to when he would give it back, so before I left class to go to lunch I just took it off his desk when he wasn't looking and went on with my day...
A day or two later, my history teacher confronted me about stealing MY Rubiks Cube back and said I was lucky he didn't suspend me. My response was very "Yeah, whatever..." and I never got in trouble, nor did I ever have anymore problems with that teacher in the future. I'm pretty sure there were other times I "reacquired" personal property from a teacher who I'd felt wrongfully confiscated it, but this is the only time I can actually remember.
Just about everybody I have shared this story with has agreed with me and my actions.
Hi all, massive thanks for the links to websites and tests that can increase understanding in things. Today I took some of the ones on body language, voice tone and reading the movies. I came out low for understanding in all of them! I am finding that a bit of a surprise as I have always assumed myself very good at reading these things...although I have recently being challenging myself to consider that sometimes I get them wrong (mostly my very quick negative interpretations).
Has anyone else been surprised with results which maybe show a bit of lack of self awareness? Pondering what I do with that information.
I think there is too much pressure on people to drink, for example, I was at a branch of restaraunt/pub chain and I said a soft drink with my meal, it was Nov 1st, the staff member serving me said it's the weekend have a drink, I said I had some at a halloween party last night, then the person serving me said hair of the dog?
I post on Reddit frequently and am constantly abused by posters from a particular subreddit that I was banned from. This subreddit (NI) is heavily biased politically, I was chastised on there for my views. I was banned because every post I made had an extremely negative comment rating.
I have a number of stalkers who follow me about and ridicule me. I have blocked these people but they continue to create accounts so I can't get away from them.
They have all found my social media and YouTube accounts. Every single video that I have posted is downvoted by them. If you look here: Winter snow - Owen
Here are two stalkers: Ribeansontoast (u/Ribeansontoast) - Reddit
lie-detective (u/lie-detective) - Reddit
an example of their abuse: It's been a slow day in work : northernireland
A few of these posters laughed and mocked my worries that I had last night (thread about my fathers temper).
Are there any 24 hour Petrol stations near Coleraine? : northernireland
I just want to discuss...
To start with, at 59 my health is pretty awful:-(.
I am in Santa Cruz, CA. I have been around this general area (counting it along with the San Francisco Bay Area as a " Greater Bay Area) since 1997. I grew up in WestchesyWe County, Nee York, in the NYC metroplex - Sortbof the outer reaches, but I was born in a hospital in NYC, Manhattan, proper, my mother's doctor put her there. I was conceived in Montreal, Canada
I had one younger brother, he's deceased now:-(, my parents are too, all interred in Westchester. I have no loving relatives who care about me.
I walk with a crutch and have COPD, Congestive Heart Failure: and really bad kidneys:-( - the CHP makes me walk very slowly and often have to rest. D
Diabetic infections lost me over 1/2 of my toes:-(. The lower half of my body is really weak (the top more strong), getting up from lying down/the floor is quite difficult:-(.
My beloved guinea pig Oreo passed away due to an unknown infection.. When he fell I'll, I called the vet and did everything I could to nurse him back to health. I finally had to rush him to the emergency animal hospital cause he had a seizure and passed out, but I was too late.. Katie and JellyBean watched their herd member die as I called every place I could to help. But when I got there, they told me he has already passed..

"I Love You"
I don't know how on going to move on. He was family. Nothing will be able to cheer me up. Not even funny cartoons or finny animals.. I feel like it's my fault. There aren't many animal hospitals that work on exotics in my state already. I tried my best to take care of Oreo when he fell Ill on Friday.. How do people even get past grief? I miss Oreo too much, and I feel like a terrible family member because he was only 2 years old. He only lived to be 2! JellyBean and Katie seem to be taking Oreo's...
I was in a group for young adults with Aspergers called The Coffeehouse from January 2009 until sometime in the spring of 2011. I left because it was taken over by a new service provider that really messed things up and destroyed the founding principles.
Ten years later, I am still friends with most of the people I first met at the Coffeehouse over a decade ago. There five of us from the Coffeehouse altogether who still hang out and do stuff together (four guys and girl). All five of us have driver's licenses and our own vehicles, and four of us have steady employment.
One of the guys has really been getting getting on my nerves the last couple of years. He is a nice guy and I would do anything for him, but he is gruff and unpleasant at times. Over the years, I have had to put out many metaphorical fires started by this guy and vouch for him to my NT friends in order to keep him from being socially ostracized.
One of my other Aspie friends lives 2 miles from me, and the friend I...
I hope you are doing well , happy to be sharing some thoughts with you again. A while ago I wrote a post about the time I started to date an Aspie and thought he was a psychopath. I felt like sharing an update about how things are going, and some questions. So here it goes!
As I said in the post, it's obvious that the guy I am seeing isn't psychopathic at all. I am very happy that we gave each other a chance and tried to make things work. We are now doing very well and slowly getting into a serious relationship. We see each other at least once a week and do many things from dinner and coffee to movies or going out to pubs/bars. I am very surprised by how J (nickname I'm using) has grown emotionally since we started seeing each other. He had never dated anybody before, which surprised me a bit because he's almost 30. But I understood that for a long time he had no interest in it and then didn't really know how to approach women. Now he is quite affectionate and...
I'm coming to terms with this. It was not how I saw my life, but my attempts at finding a boyfriend have all been horrible disasters. I could write a book about it.
I can't try anymore. It's a thankless task.
There's no such thing as "meant to be", but for want of a better expression, I feel like I'm not meant to be with anyone.
I don't really want that to be true, but all signs point to no.
The whole process has made me so miserable, I just want to be happy on my own and feel like I do not want to be with someone.
But I feel like I'm still grieving what I wanted and I haven't hit acceptance stage yet.
