Hopefully no one takes advantage of me during this time, but...

    Greetings! I am in the UK. having struggled my whole life with what I believed was a "fatal flaw" somewhere deep inside my being, and as the result of many years of searching, counselling, etc, a random conversation with a friend led to my wondering whether my "flaw" was merely a difference...

    I joined WrongPlanet but whilst I was registering I was banned for no apparent reason, I was listed as a "spammer" even though I had only just registered. Maybe the ceo is homophobic and hates LGBT people. I hope I'll be accepted here either way. I was diagnosed with ASD at a very young age, I...

    First ever smartphone, could use some advice

    So well I guess it's time. Been unable to get anything but dialup for 22 years and there's less and less I can do with it as the years go on. Fiber optic is still over a year away and they're not certain if it's even coming at all. I go to work to do pretty much anything online on their wired...

    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...

    Hi, my name is Ashley. I'm 26, married, and have no children. I have always been socially "off". I never realized it until the last year and a half; before, I just thought people were jerks and disliked me because of them being... well, jerks. It changed when I moved into a different office...
