    Does anyone else do this with their special interest too?

    Hey y'all so was curious if anyone else does this, where they literally have a difficult time buying stuff UNLESS it's related to special interest. Like with me, it is animals. Every single thing I buy has always and I mean always been around animals. I can't buy something if it's not animal...

    Any others on the spectrum have low muscle tone?

    So I was told I had low muscle tone by social workers at age 3, however never got any help on it cause they say it was minor and there was nothing they could do. So I was on the borderline of it. I done research on my own and found lots of people on the spectrum have low muscle tone too. If so...

    How can I successfully learn to drive a car before my permit expires in January?

    Okay before you say "just keep practicing" that is not the issue here, I do practice, the problem I am having is I can't focus. Even with my focus meds. I have like no awareness of others around me and I am very worried this would impact my driving. Yesterday I drove to Petsmart to get more cat...

    For those that been diagnosed by a doctor what are some of the things you remember during the tests?

    Hey so I been diagnosed by a doctor in 4th grade but for some real bizarre reason I am having a hard time remembering those tests. There is only one test I remember and it was these blocks that I had to organize in the pattern shown but everything else I forgot what went on in the test. So...

    When you were little what were some obvious signs that you had asperger's/autism?

    So I noticed when I was watching my old family videos there were signs I had Asperger's even though I wasn't diagnosed till 4th grade. Such as how I covered my ears and felt uneasy on stage in front of many people, with the loud music with bunch of children my age when my preschool was doing a...

    Does anyone just have those days where they feel as if everything is overwhelming and irritating?

    So I don't know why but some days I just get extremely overwhelm by sights, sounds, even people just standing in the same room as me is enough to irritate me. I only had a cookie today this morning at Starbucks, and am really hungry... but I don't want to snack on anything cause I am trying...

    Asperger's and disconnection

    Hi all, As an individual who's dealt with Asperger's for the past 12 years, I've struggled so much with making and finding friends my own age. I don't talk to much to anyone my age outside of work or school. My biggest struggle of all, which has essentially fueled the fire, is the loss of...

    Wage Slavery *gasp*

    Wage Slavery Wage slavery. Watch out, that's a Marxist term. I'm taking a huge risk by even breathing such a term; I bet my FBI profile will reflect that I'm a "communist sympathizer" after I post this. After all, we have a non-oppressive government that allows for the freedom of different...
