    Weird memory? General ASD feature or is it just me?

    My wife told me today that she wonders what I actually remember from our past 8 years. This is because I forget daily and mundane things very fast, but remember a lot of weird info. I mean, I can read a book in a day or two and give a lecture about it next week, but it is very hard for me to...

    Socially Awkward Experiences...

    I wonder if I will ever accept that I have Asperger. I hate that I can't get any words out from my mouth in groups. It's so difficult and all I want is to be like the others.. Yes social.

    Do you remember your dreams?

    Rarely ever do, only at times when I take a short nap and wake up suddenly. And then they fade away. Do you like your dreams? Which ones do you like? Do recall several in which I saw people from the past, but was anxious and walked quickly through rooms of people who I used to know and some...

    When are you right now?

    There's a song I remember that goes something like "where's your head at...". I suspect that people on the spectrum are rarely present in the now and don't always fully engage. My head is always in the future, I'm so involved in what will happen that I barely notice what is happening...
