    Emotional support

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this because we only recently found out my boyfriend has a mild form of Asperger's. I always thought he just wasn't the type of guy- or because he didn't care enough about me to support me emotionally so it somehow feels like a relief to know he really can't help it. I'm...

    The Autism Enigma

    This blog is about my 11 year old child who has an official ASD diagnosis. I don't completely understand this disease. I want to hear from others with similar ASD characteristics. A history: My sweet baby was born to an alcoholic father and a dysfunctional mother (me.) As my husband was...

    Clearing Up Some Misconceptions about Neurodiversity

    Clearing Up Some Misconceptions about Neurodiversity Long read, but worth it. Just because you value neurological differences doesn’t mean you’re denying the reality of disabilities. To my dismay, Simon Baron-Cohen’s recent article “The Concept of Neurodiversity is Dividing the Autism...

    I wish I was good enough for him.

    Ok at school I see a counselor and he's probably the coolest person in school. He's smart, cultured and wise. He's an old man and from what I can tell, seen many things, gone a lot of places and all sorts of people. If it wasn't obvious enough, I admire all of these qualities and unlike, with...

    Can your pet understand you when you talk to them?

    Sometimes when I talk to my cat, Cinnamon, I feel like he understands what I'm saying. Like once he was meowing about a pile of wood that was in his favorite spot, and I said, "Don't worry, it won't be there forever." And he seemed to calm down. Anyone else's pets seem to understand what you say?

    Question from someone not on the spectrum!

    Hello everyone- I'm Star and I'm not on the spectrum of autism at all; I'm doing my best to learn about it because I'd like to be as respectful and understanding of people who are diagnosed. I have a question that I'll try to make as short as possible, so please forgive me if this does end up...

    The best of times... (First published 01 Jan 2018)

    It's that time of year again, and I had hoped to have something heartwarming, insightful and completely out of character for a logic loving, systematic, no-nonsense Aspie, to share with you all. My Christmas tree is still up, so I've thrown in some Dickens, and have sprinkled it with a...

    The truth about Aspergers?

    Hi there Community. I've just read some rather interesting 'resource' and, while I can see the point of all the people involved, I... well, can't help but feel hurt. It's not every day you're reminded that you're a heartless robot. A warning: it's not a kind portrayal of AS. Heartless...

    I have been struggling with the task of adequately describing the sea change that has occurred in my life - to verbalise the subtle, yet profoundly positive shift that has occurred in the relationship I have cultivated with my husband for 30 years. I have considered and rejected numerous...

    An email to my mother

    So recently, because of family issues I am experiencing I felt it would be best to write an email to my mother explaining so things. I would very much like feedback from you all. I know this may come off as personal and I've left a few lines out. I want to know if this might come off as hurtful...
