    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...

    More...well, less-known and more 'casual' forms of neglect?

    What are some more casual, less-recognizable forms of parent-to-offspring neglect? Is this what happened to me? For starters, during high school I was not allowed to eat breakfast. My mother had very sensitive hearing and conveniently the bedroom was right above the kitchen, and apparently me...

    New Spectrum opinion piece indicates that motor issues have been overlooked in autistic people

    For years, autistic people have been assumed to be intellectually impaired even though they actually have motor issues that make it seem like they're intellectually impaired. But this new Spectrum opinion piece wants to change all that.

    Me and my boyfriend with aspergers had a fight because I did not respond to his messages fast enough when I was out with a friend. He deleted every message he sent and we didn't talk for 2 weeks, so I messaged him again and I went crazy because he ignored my texts. I knew he was angry but he...

    Job Interview Anxiety, Overload & Shutdown?

    I don't know if this is exactly spectrum related or not but I've always been awful at interviews. I've been on more than I can count but I just can't seem to grasp the interpersonal aspects of the interview process. Sometimes it's just a matter of me being really off, extremely nervous or...

    Anyone else get born into the worst possible family?

    I feel like the vast majority of my issues are there because I never had a stable home, I never really felt safe and thinking back I'm not sure I was ever loved unconditionally. Being constantly scolded for "being weird" or "not eating fast enough" and other petty things like that really messed...
