    A symptom of Neurodiversity or something else?

    Let me first state that I am not officially diagnosed and only merely brought up the subject of autism once to which I was told by a psychiatrist that I was too intelligent and articulate to be autistic. It seems unlikely that I'll be considered on the spectrum since where I stay only people...

    Once again I avoided a fatal accident :/

    So today I was walking on outside and as I was passing by the electricity services building, I got distracted by a pigeon sitting on top of a cable, kinda staring at it and nearly got hit by a car that was coming out of the building's inner parking lot. Apparently I neither heard any noises from...

    2nd driving lesson

    I managed to place my legs correctly over the pedals so I'd properly switch between the accelerator and clutch pedal. Even learned how to do it faster..but just when I was getting used to that, the teacher wanted to teach me how to do the 'stop' procedure with the brake. Good Lord, ofc it went...

    Why did the term 'Asperger' stop being used so much? What's wrong with it?

    A general question because I just don't understand what went wrong with the term and some people don't like using it anymore? Why is it better to say for ex. ''autism 1- 2''etc..instead?

    Forgetting foods in the fridge??

    This may sound ridiculous but I've ALWAYS had it and was wondering if this is a symptom that might come up frequently or just a 'me' thing. I legit can't have lots of food stored because I will end up forgetting to cook and eat most of them and they end up rotting and/or molding. Aside from 2-3...

    Driving lessons torture

    Hi to everyone :) So I've suspected for years that I'm on the spectrum, I have no official diagnosis yet, I just know that I ''click'' on all those autistic trait boxes and every year that passes, it becomes more and more noticable in my daily life..especially as I get more responsibilities and...

    Dick

    I'm Richard but my father's "greatest generation" friends always wanted to call me Dick, as in "Dick Nixon," so now I use it as an online moniker. My superpower is my ability focus on a single task and to complete it on-time, on-budget, and with a high degree of accuracy. When I was already...

    Hello!

    Just a quick intro post. I was diagnosed through a work-sponsored scheme last August after prevaricating for five+ years because I didn't like the idea of being labelled or pigeon-holed, and because work up to that point had been pretty hostile to the idea. Needless to say it's a night and day...
