    Saying hello and First part assessment

    Hello and welcome! You are justified in feeling anxious about your assessment. After all you have a lot riding on the outcome. The important thing is to remain calm. An assessment of this type is not a pass or fail proposition. Its about finding out what the facts are so that you can get...

    Sperm donation

    I support the rule 100% because there is absolutely no justification for giving someone else's child autism. Make no mistake about one thing. Those of us on the spectrum who survive and even thrive do so because society takes care of us to some extent. Individuals with autism and especially...

    Hallo

    I can relate to avoiding some of the music from the past. Sometimes it feels great and other times I have to hit the next button. That is probably a normal human behavior. One thing about Aspies is that we tend to feel some things with great intensity. Maybe that's why we make such powerful...

    Do you have trouble making friends?

    That sounds like the voice of experience. Are you a military brat? If so what was that like? I'm a vet but I never got to know any military brats during my enlistment. You describe Autism as an extreme state of being. Is that because you experience emotions to the extreme? I certainly do and...

    Hallo

    I have been a Pink Floyd fan since about 13yo when someone gave me a vinyl of Dark Side of the Moon. I was fortunate enough to have seen them in concert twice. Sadly Roger Waters was not with them either time. I will say that both concerts were excellent even w/out Roger Waters. I also grew up...

    Do you have trouble making friends?

    I'm sorry that my post made you cry. I shared that talk because it gives me hope. Hope that one day the dream of being able to break the cycle of pain and isolation will be realized. I'm very happy to know that there are people like you who will take the insights of Dr. Tony and run with them...

    Hi there

    So far I recognize the song Touch, Peel and Stand. I am guessing that I heard it on either Spotify or Pandora. Perhaps when listening to an Indie radio station? Thanks for the tip! Have you ever heard Wardruna? I listen to them when I'm reading or writing. They're an interesting mix of music...

    Hi there

    So then you are a multi-instrumentalist. That's awesome! Some of my favorite musicians are multi-instrumentalists such as Mike Oldfield and Vangelis. Have you ever seen Antoine Baril on YouTube? He plays everything in his videos. I'm sure there are other solo musicians as well if you explore...

    Hallo

    When it comes to Asperger's Syndrome there is a lot to learn. I like to mention Kathy Hoopmann because her books provide a good overview. Both are great for helping friends and family to understand AS. Where you go from there is largely up to you. This community is a good resource when you have...

    Hi there

    Hi Tony and welcome to the forums! I second unperson's A+ rating for your intro. Its great that you have found a creative outlet through your art. I wish you every success in that area. I will definitely go and check out your music. Do you play any instruments? Its interesting to note that many...

    Hallo

    Hi Domani and welcome to the forums! Have you seen Inside Asperger's Looking Out by Kathy Hoopmann? She also published All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome. Both books are a fast and easy read that take a lighthearted look at life with Asperger's Syndrome. Either may be helpful in answering your...

    Hello, New Here

    Hi Tracy and welcome! My condolences for the lost of your parents. Please don't think you are being selfish by asking questions about what the future holds. That is self advocacy and I commend you for it. Your strength in the face of tragedy is inspiring. I looked up Fan Fiction and it...

    Do you have trouble making friends?

    In my first response I failed to mention that I have the same issue of saying precisely the wrong thing in conversation. My girlfriend endured a lot when we were together. Now matter how hard I tried to avoid it, I always managed to upset her. Does that sound like your situation?

    Do you have trouble making friends?

    I thought that you articulated your thoughts quite well. I consider this to be a very personal topic to all of us. Therefore Its normal to have plenty to say when talking about it. Its definitely not fair that the NT world requires us to wear a masque and pretend to be something we are not. Just...

    Do you have trouble making friends?

    Congratulations on getting married. The challenges that you describe in your relationship with your wife are a recurring theme in the literature. You may find couples counseling helpful. As for the mistakes you made in the past, I submit to you that your past mistakes do not define you. Happy...
