    Talking is exhausting me

    I had a bad fight with my partner, it's always the same issue. We are both at fault and I'm working on it, to control myself better. To not react so intense. But... I got a shutdown (like ... the 3 time this month...I feel dead), I tried to recover from it as fast as possible but of course...

    Autism or social anxiety, inexperience and selective mutism

    Very curious to know if my experience sounds autistic or if I’m reaching. An acquaintance asked if I was (he recognized part of himself) and my best friend asked me this as well.

    Hi all! I've recently self-diagnosed myself with Aspergers Via the internet. So I'm not 100% I'm a aspie, but it sounds like i do. I would like to get a proper diagnosis but not sure how much help I can get in this area ( I live in Hong Kong). What help did you receive after having your...

    Frustrated, Not Sure Who To Turn To...

    Hey guys. Just joined because I'm really, really frustrated. Sorry, I should really greet people with a friendly, uplifting post, but I just need to get this off my chest and find some support. It's been bothering me a lot recently. I have aspergers. I'm not bothered by that at all. But when...
