    Autism and anger issues (I’m ALWAYS angry)

    When I was a kid, I was very happy-go-lucky. I liked having fun, I got along with my peers, and I very rarely lost my temper. But around the end of elementary school and the start of middle school, that began to change. I started to get very angry, lashing out at classmates, teachers, and my...

    Forum does not feel like how it was

    Hello, this forum does not feel like how it was, I think since the religion and racism things I posted here, the forum went away. It isn't like how caring it was at the start, when I joined sometime in March. What have I done wrong? I have started to hate this forum like I hate other things...

    Me, Moods, & Coping Strategies

    After a manic episode, I sometimes had all kinds of emotions and normal moods before crashing into persistent depression. I meet the diagnostic criteria for mania, but I never fall down into major depression, the depression that I have after the manic episode is mild. What is that stage called?

    Is it Just Me...(lesser known/discussed ASD traits)

    Hi all, This is my first time posting. I'm a little less than three weeks away from beginning my ASD assessment. As a kid, it was assumed by me, my therapist, and my family that I had Asperger's but I was never officially assessed or diagnosed. While there are many reasons for this assumption...

    Alright, I’m back now and am ready and will apologize for what happened that caused me to withdraw... Before I reverted to the Catholic Faith I had issues with authority and authority figures and thus viewed them with the utmost hostility and cynicism; after I reverted, I over-corrected and...

    Dealing with Irritability

    I’ve made improvements with my anger issues, but now I’m struggling with a more subtle form of it, namely irritability. In regards to angry thoughts and the like I now rarely struggle with them, they do occur sometimes but rarely; I do however, have these moments where I’m put in an irritable...

    Do you actively try to prevent yourself from getting angry at the slightest thing?

    Do you feel angry at the 'slightest' thing? Sometimes (or many times?) the anger is irrational. Do you actively try to overcome it, to prevent your anger? Like going to anger management class or something. Do you make it your ultimate goal to overcome it? I think this is important because it's...

    Driving and Me.

    So, i got my license a couple years ago. The theory tests were easy, most theory is. Depending, on a person's level of understanding, but anyway. That's beside the point. When i did my test, it took me till the fifth attempt to be able to get it. I was always jealous of people who could pass on...

    Hi, there!

    Well, I am actually feeling rather shy, even scared, to be joining your forum. I am self-diagnosed, & I realized I was autistic about a year ago, by reading autistic people's own personal stories. My therapist, who I've been seeing for a long time, agrees with me & says that autism is the best...

    I believe my dad has aspergers - would it help him to know about it?

    Hello everyone! I strongly believe my father has aspergers (or is somehow on the autistic spectrum). My sister's therapist is the one who first mentioned the idea, following that I did a lot of research for months, and everything suddenly clicked. We found the courage to talk about it to my mum...

    Meltdowns at work due to stress

    I am wondering if it is a common experience to have a meltdown at work due to the stress of having co-workers treat one badly, and how it happens. I'll relate my experiences and then others can respond. What triggered my "meltdowns" was being put in impossible situations. I was given an unfair...

    Motivation Level = 0.00% Unless...

    For most of my life, I have had absolutely NO motivation at all whatsoever to do anything. But the weird part of it is that I actually DO have desires to want to do certain things (I want to make video projects. Nothing really professional, just fun stuff to put on YouTube, etc.), but when I...
