    May I join? There are chances I fit in...

    Hello everyone. I am a 46 yo woman officially identified as an Aspie two years ago after a burn out that kept me out of work for a few months. My life has changed a lot since then. Besides changes at work, personal relationships and knowing myself better, I have also entirely changed my...

    There is a thing in psychology called, “synchronicity.” it is a sin, nature and Carl Jung, famous psychologist, who worked with Freud, but didn’t agree with him coined the term I meant, and fell in love with an Aspie. He was by far the best thing that ever happened to me, and then he suddenly...

    Hello from Germany!

    Hey hey, I'm still a bit unsure whether I really belong here, but I thought maybe this would be a good place to meet people who share similar experiences. I'm not diagnosed with anything except depression (who isn't?), but I have a growing suspicion that I might be on the spectrum. I never...

    YouTube video on Asperger's: Not a disorder? Seems minimizing.

    Curious about everyone's thoughts on this. Mark Hutton, M.A. has put out several short videos on dealing with the Asperger's condition, especially from a relationship perspective (NT-ASD couples relationships, etc.). I think his heart is in the right place with this, perhaps trying to allow...

    There, I've done it. *runs away* Haha okay, okay. Here's a proper introduction. You can call me Bana! I suspected I was on the spectrum for a year and a half beforehand, when I was a senior in college researching about autism to better understand my oldest cousin's autism. I happened to come...

    Break up with AS ex, haven't heard from him since, he'd said we'd stay friends

    I had a break up 4-5 months ago. He said several times we'd always be best friends, even if it didn't work out. Sadly since we were together, arguments escalated and it became like the opposite of best friends. Since the break up he hasn't read my messages or spoke to me. We started off as...

    Just emerged from the primordial ooze

    Hi. Introductions are weird. :/ I'm no good at them. I'm in my mid twenties. I was diagnosed with Asperger's/Level 1 ASD in my late teens. I also have GAD. I'm under a lot of work stress lately. I hope to make friends here or a least a place to share my thoughts. Anyways, nice to meet you all.

    I don't think I am the only Aspie here who likes being naked.

    It does not mean you are perverse. In some parts of the country, there is a substantial nudist population. If you look among open-minded people, you may meet some who respect your inclination, even if they don't share it. There is nothing wrong with you and it isn't dirty or sinful. Your body is...

    Hello I'm new here and I've just joined today so I can share what has happened to me today. First of all I would like to give you a brief bit of background history. I'm 45 years old, female and I live in the north of England. I've suffered with depression, anxiety and social anxiety my whole...

    Dealing with stress | Asperger | Advices

    #advicesneeded I need your advices. My husband is overwhelmed by social interractions, he never feels relaxed around others (only around me). If he does not respect his schedule, he feels uncomfortable (Ex.: he eats at 7:00 pm; if he's late, he prefers to eat something on his way home rather...

    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...

    Walking on tiptoes. Just because.

    I recently watched a YouTube video by The Aspie World titled ASPERGERS symptoms in children: 5 ways YOU spot Autism, in which one trait of some people with Asperger Syndrome is said to be walking on their tiptoes, especially in their childhood and teenage years. That video unearthed a part of...
  13. Searching for My Place on the Spectrum

    65 Years and Counting...

    Very early in my career, a decade or more before the turn of the century, I was given a test by my employer to determine, within any project, the level of importance I placed upon the people versus the task. After he gathered the results, I was told by the gentleman who administered the test...

    Swimming, but sinking

    Thinking back to my school years, one of my strongest memories is how utterly untalented I was in all things sport-related. But my sport-problems started even before I entered elementary school, especially with swimming. I was perfectly content with my floaties. Being in the water was amazing...

    Searching for My Place on the Spectrum

    I think Patsy Clairmont was on to something when she said: Normal is Just a Setting on Your Dryer I find that book title encouraging because it suggests that each of us has something to contribute to a generally accepted view of normal. As we seek to find value by adopting change in some...

    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.

    Need Advice

    Hello. I am conflicted and need help. I would appreciate any advice or counsel. Many years ago I was told I am probably autistic (Aspergers), and did some self-inventories, and I matched all of the characteristics (geeky, super smart, emotionally clueless, scoliosis, don't know how to deal with...

    Therapist thinks I have Asperger's. 43 year old female

    Hello. I'm not entirely sure what to say. I'm looking for some advice and help. I'm 43, married, work full time to a hospital. I've had bad anxiety and depression most of my life and problems with social interaction and making friends most of it. There were periods I did though, but time...
