Asperger's & Autism Forum
I have Asperger's Syndrome. My manager asked me to apply for a manager position on Saturday. I did so (it sounds like it could be fun). I am not sure what my chances are, but asking me to apply would seem like it would be a good sign.
I am both excited and a bit scared. On one side I hope that I can help point out problems before they occur as I seem to identify procedural problems before others. On the other side I would be managing 10-20 people.
My chameleon-like ability to blend in seems to be highly developed. I am also really good at managing resources (things like money and collectibles). I am also really good at efficiency. Inefficiency is almost immoral in my eyes, and I expressly do not enjoy wasting my time. I seem to be able to do paperwork 400% faster than others (once I get up to speed).
I would think that my different way of thinking is what may be appealing to management. I noticed a flaw that may make my department/company a significant amount of money once...
I have a strange obsession. I love studying. Anything from trading to science to math. When I was 11 I read the wealth of nations by Adam smith in 2 days. I'm only 15 and I love doing complex math in my head. I'm an all around nerd but it's not like I'm antisocial or anything. I have plenty of friends and a few who have been and one who currently is more than a friend. Problem is I prefer knowledge over people. Help?
He has autism(high function), I do not. He is 30 and we met 5 years ago through his brother. I stayed a while with them in their city. From the very first time he saw me he wouldnt take his eyes off me, he would blush and never talk to me. When we went to their place the day I got there, his brother joked about him and me making out and he (the guy i like) sat next to me and was about to kiss me. I had just broken up from a 4+ year old relationship the day before, so I wasnt interested in anything like that.
During my stay he would always be around me, he told him brother that he wanted to go out with me and we did. It was kind of weird because he wasnt talking at all, I kept trying to make conversation but nothing. It was nice though, he is a good guy and to be honest my mood wasnt that great so maybe it was better we didnt talk much. When we got home he slept in the same bed with me. He was so stressed about it, he slept on the other edge of the bed so he wouldnt even touch me...
So, I have always been a big bookworm and I always love to get new ones to read. Back in the day I read more Fiction than anything else, and since midway through 2013 I turned around and starting reading Nonfiction.
In Fiction, I have read the Harry Potter series, the Left Behind series, and The Inheritance Cycle.
In Nonfiction, I have been reading mostly History and Political Science books, and through it all I have learned a great deal. Most of the books are either about George Washington and our Founding Fathers, or the Revolution in general; one is a biography of Ulysses S. Grant; one is about Dwight D. Eisenhower's years as President; and others have been about other topics in modern America.
Other books include the topic of writing and I have a few classics as well. Among the classics is a small compilation of Plato's work (going to buy his complete philosophical work eventually), a compilation from ancient Chinese authors (never actually finished it all, need to...
okay. I know u r going to make fun of me again - & that's okay.

I just watched my neighbor fire off fire works to scare off the deer!
Why is that okay?
So I responded w a wall mural & my goal is to paint a beautiful deer on my building!
It takes time & effort to do a mural! They came by & ridiculed me!!
I HATE PEOPLE!
I have always had a hard time with sound. Since I was very young, I had an intense fear of loud sounds like toilets flushing, balloons popping, etc. Even to this day, I would often plug or cover my ears before I flush the toilet. Not only that, I had, and still have, a hard time blocking out background noises. Whenever I studied and needed to concentrate, I could hear too many different noises that would drive me crazy. Smallest of sounds like clock ticking, pencil screeching, typing, buttons on the calculator, or any movements would make me lose my train of thought and prevent me from comprehending question. Therefore, whenever I took a test, I had to read the questions repeatedly or plug my ears, which is impossible to do if you are writing an essay. When conversing amongst the crowd or a loud classroom, I frequently missed what the other person said, so I always had to reply back "what did you say?" or agreed without knowing what was said. Do you guys have similar problems in...
I really have an issue with Internet Trolling, even in it's so-called 'mildest form'
It REALLY riles me!
See attached example....
It's been a really long time since I've made a thread, and I have to say I missed it. I liked venting and having you all give advice and share similar experiences, which always helped. As those who are familiar with me may know, I've been fighting for a couple years now to get testing done, even though my parents kept on putting it off. Well, after starting High School (which was the main reason I stopped posting so often sooo much work) and having my school counselors be involved (since they kept on getting notified about my bad grades), they talked to my parents and suggested I do got psycho-ed testing done. I though it was going to end up the same way as it did with my therapist, getting a referral only to have my parents flake out, but for whatever reason it finally went through. Testing was all right, it was pretty long though, and my Mom was almost appalled at the questionnaire she had to fill out, since some of the questions asked if I had ever committed any sort...
