    Autistic Facial Expressions?

    One of the seemingly most consistent markers for autism which I have come across in my reading is a lack of facial expressions. My situation, however, is the exact opposite: I have whatever is the opposite of a "poker face." Everyone around me is able to tell precisely what is going through my...

    Psychiatrist for Adults with Autism

    Hello- I'm desperate and hoping someone can help. I have a 30 year old brother with severe autism and we're trying to find a psychiatrist to help with medication management. He currently lives in Birmingham, AL with my mom, but they're willing to go anywhere to see someone who's good. Does...

    Brushing of teeth

    When I was around 11 years old, I created a system for brushing my teeth. I knew you were supposed to brush your teeth for 2 minutes, but the area you need to brush over is quite large, so I wanted to be uniform. I segmented my teeth into 21 areas. The nine rear for the upper teeth were left...

    Anyone here a hand flapper?

    If so, does it make you feel excited or do you do it to calm yourself down? I personally don’t do it, which is why I want to know.

    Snapping fingers

    I have never been able to snap my fingers, ever since I was a kid and we were asked to snap to some songs. It seemed like I was the only one who just couldn't do it, and I still can't no matter how much I try. I have a standard body and fitness level, so in theory, nothing should stand in the...

    SUPER Old Shows

    Me, personally.... Anything that came out before the early 70s or so is something I find really hard to understand or relate to. I can identify myself in 80s and 90s stuff even though I'm a 00s kid, but the good thing about even older stuff is that I have no idea what the heck's happening, so it...

    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...

    Typing vs. Writing

    I like both and how I use both everyday, you can have a preference or choose both ^^

    Lost in Limbo, HELP ME!!! Lol

    I was diagnosed with PDD-NOS, Do I have ASD? I have PDD-NOS, I feel that I have high functioning autism. I can’t do a conversation well when people are talking (often think they are talking to me which usually just ends up in being laughed at), I flap my hands often and make a whistle sound...

    Has anyone thought about if the white colour hurts your eyes yet, and you would rather turn it to black or another colour? (Also, in case this is already a feature I'm not aware of, please let me know!!)
  11. Uninstalling


    How do you guys feel when you uninstall or delete stuff that you don't need off of your device? Personally... WOW it feels great. I also enjoy changing my laptop's desktop wallpaper. Computering is fun :P My Mum's a huge fan of computers so I get my fast typing fingers from her. How do you like...

    Does anyone else get confused with basic questions, or over-explain your answer?

    It's confusing because it's all in interpretation, and I get so...frustrated with myself. Is it a communication thing? For example, my fiancee was recently talking to me about a certain TikTok where a girl was saying that her sensory-overload aisle in the grocery store was the spice aisle. "How...

    What prevented you from accepting your autism?

    For me it was social stigma

    Common childhood interests you did not have

    The question isn't well worded, but basically, I am wondering about what "play" behaviour you exhibited as children which was atypical: More specifically, what activities did your peers perform but you didn't care about at all? I am mainly thinking about ages 10 and under. When I was a kid, I...

    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...

    Excessively complimenting people

    I tend to compliment people a lot. In the middle of a conversation I will say that the conversation is good, or that they have good points. If I notice some interesting piece of clothing (like octopus socks) I will compliment people on that and even during family dinner I will compliment the...

    Sensitivity to pictures and light?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong thread topic but I have a question. How many of you are sensitive to certain pictures like black-and-white grey scale or sepia tones and how many of you are sensitive to bright lights and flashing lights (I'm also adding slow flashing lights to this). I can't look...

    Did/do you call your family members by their names?

    Starting from when I was four, I called every member of my family by their given names. I didn't call my parents "mom" and "dad", or even my grandparents "grandma" and "grandpa" or anyone else for that matter. It made sense to me as a kid, because potentially every adult is a mom or a dad, while...

    Do you hate it when someone ignores you?

    So, I'm not annoyed but I'm asking a question but wanting to hear others side of the question, do you get annoyed or frustrated when someone replies to someone else but sees you're message but ignores you? For example, it happened to me today, I welcomed someone not gonna say the user but then...
