    Can I vent about my crummy day at work?

    Apologies if this isn't allowed. What's...unique about the situation is that despite it being a bad bad day, I still had all my spoons and executive function...but as of right now I'm over it an incapable. So I work the retail, etc. etc. Particularly yesterday it was not good because there was...

    What do I do about job requirements that may cause conflict with my autism? (vent/rant/frustration)

    Hi folks. I'm kind of going through a rough time of it now, and would appreciate some advice? insight? Oh, boy. So retail is retail, and for the most part my autism doesn't affect my duties that much, other than I can only stand working for so long before I go into shutdown. I recently had my...

    Those who have dealt with the SSA--was my experience common?

    This may be a vent here but I appreciate all your input. A while back I applied with the Social Security Administration, and my interview was quite recent. It was, in short, a mixed bag of issues and I fear I am not alone in this realization. It was via Telehealth, as the location in my state...

    Misdiagnosis, or missed diagnosis?

    I know I vent on here about my family a lot, and maybe it's best to not give in to anger all the time but sometimes it's as if I have no choice. Recently I've been able to access my IEP from high school, and this is the first opportunity I've had to read it post-diagnosis. What a ride...

    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...

    Frustration & Anger

    I felt a LOT of anger earlier today, especially when I was doing chores. I felt very 'teenage angsty' and disappointed my family. It's EXTREMELY unusual for me to be that angry. Suddenly though, I realise one thing I'm frustrated about - I still don't have a job yet. I also get annoyed at...

    Annoyance regarding responses

    I frequent news sites with comment sections, and one thing which really bothers me is when people do not respond to any points made in the article itself, but rather seem to have a comment ready to send which could go with any article dealing with the topic. For instance, say you are reading an...

    Hello, newly diagnosed and struggling a bit....

    Hello, This is my first time reaching out to an online support group for anything at all. But, my therapist suggested that searching for a community to connect with (even one online) might help with the struggles I've been recently experiencing. I am 35 years old, and only recently diagnosed...

    NT/Aspie relationship- things I've learned about him and us

    Wanted to post this in the hopes it might be helpful to other NT's who are trying to navigate a relationship with someone on the spectrum. I see lots of NT's come on here looking for advice and information. These forums have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. After four...

    I hate ordering things. I hate it! Cant trust it!

    Okay, so here's what happened. I learned about an interesting board/card game that seemed really cool. Tried out a digital version of it on the PC here to see what it was like. However, that's only halfway finished, and doesnt include expansions yet, that'll be awhile off. So I figured...

    What Are Common Annoying Things NTs Do in Relationships?

    After a million misunderstandings with my ASD (non-diagnosed) boyfriend over the last three years, I'm starting to perceive our relationship differently. People on this site have said over and over again- the ASD person isn't going to (can't) change. Everything I've read has stated the same...

    Annoying Sounds

    I wasn't sure which forum made the most sense for this question, so I chose this one. Quick question. Can people on the spectrum be sensitive to certain noises/sounds? My boyfriend gets very agitated when I clear my throat (which is related to allergies and I don't even notice I'm doing it)...

    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...

    What is this feeling

    Sometimes theres a feeling deep inside of me, a feeling that no matter what i cant get out. Its like a build up of something tbh i cant even really fully explain it myself. But what comes to mind that would potentially give me relief seems violent to me. I want to scream. I want to pound my...

    Finding the sweet spots in life.

    I enjoy writing about life and it's bizarre twists and turns. Strive to help others who deal with challenges and battles that many simply don't understand. Sharing my story to help educate others on the spectrum and off. Experiences in life, both good and bad, help shape us into who we are, or...

    Smh @ Indian call centres!

    Topic. Just been on with Talk Talk trying to upgrade my Fibre Broadband package, I was asking questions as I'm very tech savvy, and the woman on the phone didn't understand me. I mean yeah OK I have a strong local accent which most Indians can't understand but come the heck on, I speak English...
