    People's I.Q

    Are other people really have less iq than me or is this just another "thing" of being an aspie? I excessively feel like all the other people are bunch of gorillas that can somehow talk my language. I surely can't control this feeling, it is annoying and it is making my life harder. Innerly, i...

    How did you feel about yourself and other people when you were a child?

    I'm curious how autism affected the way people here felt early in their life when they were less than 10 years old and if things are different now that you're older. The main questions I'm interested in are: Did you feel like other people liked you? Did you feel like you belonged? What did you...

    Up until last year, I thought people treated me poorly because I was different. I blamed them for making me feel worse. I tried hard to act normal but I wasn't perfect and still got criticized. Since I couldn't change how people treated me, I thought there was nothing I could do about it. The...

    WHAT IS ALEXITHYMIA? Alexithymia refers to trouble identifying and describing emotions. Most people learn about emotions from their parents.

    Words From Your Favorite Song

    So this is to bring back those songs we sing over and over, (if l could only stop singing this song). It's up to you how much of the song you wish to put down. Allow me to throw this out: It's my party and l'll cry if l want to, cry if l want to.

    People treat me different. It's in the tone of their voices the looks on their face. They look at me with pity.. and fill my head with lies because they are afraid I can't handle the truth. Heads up, autism doesn't mean stupid. It's a neurological phenomenon and mostly affects how I interact...

    How do y'all handle death from someone close to you?

    My mother died today and we will be going out of town to her funeral. Funerals have always been very difficult for me and many times I have gotten out of going to funerals just because all the emotion and feelings seemed to really mess with me. I wondered if this was an aspie thing or just me. I...

    Explaining Relationship Dynamics to Aspie

    Usually I come on here to post or read threads when I'm struggling in my relationship with my (undiagnosed) ASD boyfriend. I guess reading and writing helps me see things from a more objective and broader perspective. I'm here to vent frustration because people on here "get it" but also to...

    Aspie overload - how to help

    How do you like your friends and family to treat you when you're on overload? My bf had gotten fired from many jobs in IT due to interpersonal issues- usually would end up telling someone off or having his version of a meltdown due to frustration with "illogical" people. Actually he might have...

    Levels of friendship

    just had an uncomfortable and hurtful moment with my special friend. We are LDR. I got a FB notification to all his friends that he has marked himself “safe” in a storm that has hit his immediate area. I have not heard directly from him in the last couple of days as I usually do the care...
