    AspiAngie's Introduction to the Autism Forums

    I just realized I never actually made an introduction thread for myself. I posted in the generic introduce yourself thread and posted something on my profile, but as for my own introduction thread I never did. So I am now. About me: I am Angie and live in Canada. I am just about 50. I was born...

    Being patient with behaviors neurotypcials do not (generally) tolerate

    How many posters here accept behaviors that hardly any neurotypicals would accept?

    What prevented you from accepting your autism?

    For me it was social stigma

  5. Au Naturel


    I'm not good at the social game. I am far from perfect. I am not everyone's cup of tea. Sometimes I feel like the proverbial bull in a china shop. The curse of Asperger's. If I were to be sorry for everything I do wrong, every mistake, every time I did something that wasn't socially correct, I...

    Removing the mask to try and find yourself...how do you do it?

    I was diagnosed this year in my 30s with ASD/Asperger's. Since childhood I knew that there was something different about how I interacted with others and the behaviors that I wanted to engage in weren't 'socially acceptable' and often was the subject of me being yelled at by my father. Through...

    Shame and Denial to Acceptance

    So, I want to start a thread on the topic of denial around autism because I've have yet to see anyone discuss things like this yet. If this type of negative talk isn't allowed, please let me know. Let me start off by saying that I am fairly new to this website (a few days) and my autism in...

    Clearing Up Some Misconceptions about Neurodiversity

    Clearing Up Some Misconceptions about Neurodiversity Long read, but worth it. Just because you value neurological differences doesn’t mean you’re denying the reality of disabilities. To my dismay, Simon Baron-Cohen’s recent article “The Concept of Neurodiversity is Dividing the Autism...

    Depression and acceptance

    Hello blog, it's been a while. Last time I posted an update I had just gone through a mini-psychotic break and I had just been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Today I will be ranting a little, rather than posting clever and/or insightful and/or funny things. No grand things have happened to me...

    What's up people!. I have just been rejected by a girl and although I have a lot of experience with rejection Im just confused, I guess it is how naturally happends but now that I'm able to rationalize feelings still hurts a little. You see, I've never had a gf, and my past experiences with...

    My very own corner of peace and love

    Writing in anonymity has become a way to take care of myself. Every time I type a word, it's like combing my hair, or brushing my teeth. Sometimes it's like taking a hot bath for my soul, which is good since I don't have a bathtub. I decided to invest in a full size mattress for myself, so I can...

    Like to say sorry for a few comments that I've made on here sometimes my words come out wrong maybe a bit too strong but not as intended. Yeah kind of sucks my situation for right now but the truth of the matter is I'm in a decent position with me owning my own place and I do have somewhat of a...

    Being the lemon in the relationship

    Just saw a post about NTs feeling traumatized in a relationship with an Aspie. The article describing the relationship trauma might have been written by my spouse, who is often convinced he "bought a lemon" when he fell in love with me. He also thinks I use my AS diagnosis as an excuse to get a...

    Obsession or Love?

    I am 58 and still single, never married, and was recently diagnosed as having the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). I accepted the diagnosis with absolute relief! The burden of the unknown as to why I am so out of step with my companions has been taken away. On the positive side, I have a passion...

    Different MO for Neurodiversity Acceptance

    If the neurotypicals were shown a graph of their talents, strengths and weaknesses... wouldn't they be distracted whie reassessing their lives? That way, we get busy getting strong and coming out? We could market the quiz profitable for social and business ladder climbing.
