  1. autism-and-autotune

    I'm feeling conflicted and unhappy with my family situation. May I have some validation and/or advice? (trigger warning, also, I think)

    To preface this, my fiance advises me to take charge of my own mental health and respect my own boundaries. I recognize too that I must do this but I hate that there is that subconscious pull in my gut that says 'standing up for yourself? How wrong! You can't do that!' Surely those brought up by...

    rant bit of ableism on autism acceptance month

    I was watching the movie champions( the movie is PG-13 and has some words and content so I can't show it but if you want to look it up, it's up to you guys) with my grandma thinking it can help her deal with her bias on intellectual disabilitys and Developmental disabilities If you seen the...

    Does anyone else get confused with basic questions, or over-explain your answer?

    It's confusing because it's all in interpretation, and I get so...frustrated with myself. Is it a communication thing? For example, my fiancee was recently talking to me about a certain TikTok where a girl was saying that her sensory-overload aisle in the grocery store was the spice aisle. "How...

    I’m lost.

    I’ve been diagnosed autistic since I was 9. So It’s sad that there is still so much I don’t know about it. So I joined this forum in the hopes that I might learn about it. My parents aren’t really accepting of it. They know I’m diagnosed, but they still won’t educate themselves on it, or...

    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...

    Are things going to be okay?

    I was at the store today and the lines are longer than I have ever seen them. People are buying everything and some shelves are empty. I am not worried about the virus, I may get sick but I think I will get better. I am worried about people panicking, buying everything up and then people not...

    Why is there so much confusion about the Bible and Christianity?

    I know lots of people-especially non-Christians, will usually mock and ignore Christianity because as they say-and they are right in that- Christianity is like a windmill..yes in a way it is today like a windmill. But why? Why not??? How can it NOT be a windmill when there are over a thousand...

    Hello! Recently self-diagnosed, excited and confused

    Hey everyone! I am so happy forums like these exist, they've been eye-opening. I've only recently realized I'm an aspie, after stumbling upon checklists and blog which described so much of my experience. A part of me is still in awe of all this, but I couldn't find any better explanation for all...

    Work Problems

    Hi Everyone, I am going through such a nightmare and would normally never open up about it to anyone except maybe a couple of family members. But I thought someone here may have some good advice for me and I might be able to eventually help someone else with that information, so here goes: I'm...

    trouble understanding descriptions the way they're supposed to be understood?

    I've found that I've always had a problem with imagining a setting and characters? Sometimes it's impossible for me to formulate a picture of a visual description and most of the time it's, wrong. In book fanbases I've noticed fanart seems to all have the same general idea of what the setting...

    Family relationships

    I have an older brother. We haven't been too close and he caused more of my meltdowns and panic attacks than I care to remember. Maybe if we both were 'on the same page', we would be closer - isn't it what should normally happen between two kids that got only each other, metaphorically locked...

    Friendship help

    hi everyone I’m basically here to see if I can get a bit of help understanding a person I’m currently trying to befriend who has Aspergers. It’s a mess of a story and long (maybe you’ll get a laugh outta it, I know I do a bit) This new guy at my job had peaked my interest being attractive and...

    26 NT and 36 AS- mixed messages.

    Hi guys, I’ll try my best to keep this as short as possible. In August, I started dating an aspie guy who I really liked (let’s call him Joe). He was very forthright with his feelings for me; however, he has issues with drink. I told him I didn’t know whether I could handle that because I have...

    Hello Everyone~

    My name is Samantha, please call me Sam or Sami, and I am 28 years old. Twenty-three years ago, at the age of five, my personality switched from being the most perfect child to devil's own child. It was like a lightswitch was flipped and it never returned to how it once was. Since then I have...

    Single fathers?

    Strange heading I know and I am not being weird. I am looking for some advice for the man I am seeing. Essentially we have been seeing each for 18months, started while he was married and has continued. He has spent 18months telling me he doesn't want to go back to her but he misses his son...

    how do you know when it's time to end it.

    I've been dating a girl for over six months. It seems like our relationship is going no where. I feel disgruntled and I tried talking to her but she just blew my concerns off. I've tried so hard to keep this up. Everything I do goes unappreciated and I sick of going the extra mile just to be...

    Does this kind of religion make sense and does anyone agree?

    I'm an entropic-cantheist. I believe in the rules of entropy and entropic followers. These people believe that the rules of thermodynamics, the second law specifically, that the universe has a constant increase in its measure of disorder, chaos, and things we can't control no matter how hard...
