    ASD And Stringent Rules around Friendships

    Hi There, I need some help/advice on what is "normal" when it comes to friendships. I have found myself with very few friendships, and I'm holding on by a thread with the remaining connections I have. I have realised that I perhaps have a different set of expectations than others and maybe the...

    I tried stimming: Spinning rings

    When the general public (which is my floppy term for people who know about the existence of autism but not too much about what it means) thinks about stimming in autism, most will probably come up with rocking, or hand flapping and the like, maybe also audible stims if they have ever been on a...

    Childhood favorites are stim toys today

    During my 'research' into autism, I was recently checking out #stimtoys on Instagram because that is exactly the platform on which serious research on autism should start. I was scrolling through the tag when I came across the account of a shop that seemed to be specialized in types of objects...

    So I think I might have ASD.

    Alright. Today’s Monday. I’m on the train to my workplace. It’s jam-packed, people are speaking on their phones, there’s an entire school class in it and I can’t get to my earphones cause the train is too packed to reach for them in my backpack. I’m freaking out. Last night I couldn’t sleep...

    ASD, maybe.

    Thoughts and musings of a person who is unsure whether she might have ASD or not. I created this blog as a means of documenting my journey.

    Almost diagnosed

    Greetings from the world I already belonged to. For me, that means sensory issues with sights and sounds. Difficulty starting and maintaining friendships. I am in my 30s and finally found a therapist that has identified what’s been going all my life. I’ll be officially diagnosed in June...

    Hello, everyone. I am a newbie here.

    Hello, You may call me "Chase" for short. I am in my 20's and live on the East Coast. When I was still in school, they suggested that my parents get me tested for ASD because I was showing signs. However, being a different time, they took it as a negative and I was never officially...

    Is Trixi mildly autistic?

    Hey "Rabbits", I have been looking at a lot of videos on a channel called DontTrustTheRabbit, which is mostly about the Germans and their language. But I have found clues that she is on the spectrum, but not diagnosed. In her first video in English, on speaking English at work, she says...

    Lets Talk About Sex! (and ASD)

    I tried to keep this post as clean as I can. I mostly made it, so I can understand sex through an aspie POV. I have put spoiler tags on top of certain paragraphs or phrases when I felt they were a bit more graphic and/or controversial. Not that this will happen to me in the near future, but...

    Hello Awesome Warriors! I'm new and newly diagnosed- Just saying HI

    It only took me three weeks to decide to say, HI, publicly. :) But here I am. Newly-diagnosed, 56-year-old retired law professor. As I look back and begin to understand the past 50 years, I am stunned as to how I ever made it this far! The learning curve is steep, but so worth it. I very...

    Introduction: Nikki, 23 and still learning about my own brain

    Hi everyone, I have yet to receive a diagnosis of anything on the spectrum but I do struggle with SPD. But, the more research I do the more I relate to the stories from people with ASD or Aspergers. While I want to seek out professional opinions I would also love to talk with some people to gain...
  13. The Gentle and Brave Writer


    A few months ago I was in a low moment of my life, confused, and without energy. Fortunately, reading books doesn’t require much effort on my part, so I started reading a cascade of books on relationships. There was one that made an emphasis in having fun: make it a goal, have more fun in your...

    New to this forum... And to all of this really.

    Hi, my name is Ashley. I'm 26, married, and have no children. I have always been socially "off". I never realized it until the last year and a half; before, I just thought people were jerks and disliked me because of them being... well, jerks. It changed when I moved into a different office...

    Help Needed - High Functioning Autism in Girls Parents View

    Hi My friend was diagnosed with Aspergers at age 30 and as an NT I wondered how this had been missed?! Her brother has AS which was diagnosed at five and he received help throughout his school years and into adulthood. On the other hand, my friend received no help and I think this has...
