    Unusual Smell/Sensory Preferences?

    I've read a lot on the internet and on this forum about people on the spectrum being hypersensitive to certain smells. For me, it seems like the opposite. While there are, of course, certain odors that I don't like, I feel that I have a fairly weak sense of smell. I also seem to enjoy smells...

    How quickly do your eyes adjust?

    I've noticed that I can easily go between dark environments and light ones. People thought I was a little strange (along with other reasons) as a result back in secondary / high school.

We worked in groups of three and there were lots of people in a small-ish gym/dojo. I was getting along really well with my group and at the end I was putting my...

    Paper and other Sensory Issues

    I am currently awaiting diagnosis after getting tested last week. I am finding out the results on Wednesday, so please have me in your thoughts. The real reason I am writing this is because I have a question. My senses seem to be a super high level. For example, I was in church today and was...

    Are we blind?

    i know this is a tad dramatic but if something like 80% (probably more) of communication is non verbal and we can't see it or have a great deal of trouble seeing it, is it fair to say we are visually impaired? Or is it that we do see it but have trouble processing it? It would be cool if someone...
