There are a few traits/practices I have which I would like to reverse, for my own benefit (especially at work, since that's when I have to deal with people the most). I feel the level of urgency would be decreasing in these list items from #1 to 5, but I think the degree of challenge/difficulty...

Though I am understanding the ins and outs of my work, it's a LOT to keep track of, especially for me. A lot of it may seem common sense to others, but it's a lot of details and noticing surroundings, and in the moment. I think I need to prep myself before visiting each client by journaling...

A possible new focus....one I don't want to forget while overwhelmed. It seems throughout life, whatever I tried, however I tried...I just have always had a much harder time than others in being socially accepted and liked. It has gotten better, for sure - but it's always stinging to...

My co-workers are always teasing the childless women about how it's their turn to have a baby. I've tried not to make a big thing of it, but I find it highly inappropriate. I even divulged more than I would like to have about my health condition in an effort to discourage it - but they still...

One of the things that leaves me emotionally ragged by the end of the day is being surrounded by people for whom normal clever social interactions is always surfing along the surface. I am constantly asked questions that they don't really mean to hear the real answers to - it has become a joke...

Very first point: I extend apologies to anyone offended by a light usage of the term schizophrenia. I am not referring to literal schizophrenia, but rather the idea of seeing/believing diverging realities. So....I've often heard about people either viewing the glass as half empty or half...

I have been too busy trying to stay afloat of all the craziness lately, of the new job and other things, to write about all of the realizations/adjustments I have been trying to make, or have decided that I should make. I've had to do a lot of thinking/writing out in the past - way too much to...

I've got several posts I've been meaning to create....but I've just been feeling overwhelmed. It's all great - but all change is stressful, as they say, and I've had nothing but change for the past 10 years....or more? I've only just now started settling into something, but even that is a lot...

So I'm learning more about my co-workers.... They try to do the minimum of work....but they make themselves look as good as possible, and feel threatened if someone else attempts to do more work. They make each other look bad in order to make themselves look good. It's not totally malicious...

So....I believe this is something many Aspie women deal with. Yes, I know, many females in general deal with this. But for Aspies, as I have read, and as I myself have experienced, apparently the vibes or boundaries we do or don't send off can be either misconstrued as availability or make us...

My coworkers all seem nice....but what I forget is that it always starts out this way, then things can change - terribly. I can only be expected to do so well. I tend to overshare, and I may seem less mature in my humor, more esoteric in my interests, and naive bordering on foolish to my...

Work has been so much nicer than any other place. The people are really nice. I am doing a lot better than I thought I would....but today I felt kind of dumb. Basically, I think I learn things differently than most people do. I've never had someone monitor how I am learning and in what...

I have been trying to learn all useful and encouraging information from others with ASD, and the great thing about youtube videos is that I can listen to them while doing other tasks. Helps me get through chores while I get to learn about what I need to know, or at least keeps me company. I'm...

Still......very confused and bewildered by this. I have the world's greatest husband, so supportive. We have no kids. When I get home from work, I feel I need to just be entirely alone. Greeting him lovingly, being a good companion for him - these things mean I can't recharge after my work...

So far, amazingly, I think I have made a good impression on most people at work. What has helped is very unexpected: there is a manager there whom everyone already hates. Yes, he is over me - but, it is an advantage, now the NTs already have someone pegged as they person they dislike, as the...

I'm continuing to try to figure out how to best handle this, to see what I can manage. Now I understand why so many Aspies apparently can't handle anything else once they come home from full time work - meaning some need to just be entirely alone to do their own thing, not have to interact with...

Okay, so that title is misleading. This is just something that has bothered me - I seem to attract users. Mothers who are users. Meaning, they pay a lot of attention to me and act really friendly when they want something from me, but when they don't want something from me, they ignore me...

My new job is full-time. I have read that many Aspies find they cannot work full-time. Though my job is ideal considering potential "burnout/get-fired danger zone areas" that I have/might face at other jobs, it is still full-time. The trouble with full-time is simply the length of it. That...

I recently experienced something that reminded me of reactions from NTs that catch me off guard. 1) The person with whom I really seem to hit it off, they are talking and talking, we are friendly, we leave friendly, it seems nice - and then the next time I see them, they do not act friendly at...

I have spoken a lot to my husband on the journey of learning about ASD.....but I don't get a lot of response. He is very patient and understanding, though. But now, when I express frustrations as an Aspie.....he just looks like it is adding strain on him. And he doesn't have much response -...
