Asperger's Syndrome & Autism News & Forum
My brother was supposed to be an only child. I was an accident and they sure let me know it. No matter how hard I try to love my mother & father (divorced), they still reject my love. Am I so despicable and detestable that I even my own parents don't want me in their lives? I really don't understand what I have done. I use to be a thoughtful, giving and polite young girl and I have become an isolated woman who has lost her drive. And coping with Aspergers & PTSD, as well. I don't have anyone who understands autism and I get so frustrated with hundreds of links to go check out and keep up with coping mechanisms that I should have learned by now.
When a smartphone gets warm, it really bothers me. My wife and I have the same phone now, the Galaxy S7, and I checked and confirmed that they both get equally warm under the same conditions. It doesn't bother her at all, but I'm really, really bothered by it. And it's been the same for previous phones, I've returned phones that I thought got too hot when no one else felt that they were a problem. (They'd notice it being warm, but didn't care.) Is this an aspie thing, or am I just weird in some other less interesting way?
So it's the Summer a prime time for people to away on holiday.
I've never been one for holidays, it's never been something that's interested me.
I'm in a relationship with an NT so tend to get dragged away to places by her, but generally it isn't something that has appealed to me and ever plan myself.
The culture of sitting around a swimming pool getting a tan and getting drunk.
Before I got with her I used to use up my holidays from my main job to work another.
Can anyone else relate to this?
I've never done this before, so I felt pretty nerdous. Yes, I'm fiddling with a stim toy throughout.
This was before a crowd of local business leaders at a fundraiser breakfast for my wonderful local YMCA. I felt truly honored and grateful for the chance to thank them.
The standing ovation really surprised me. It touched my heart, I felt so humbled. People can be so kind.
Without further fondue, here's your opportunity to heckle.
Where are these guys when ya need 'em?
I have only taken two doses so far so it is early days yet, but I was prescribed escitalopram/lexapro yesterday (last on it ten years ago) and I have noticed that I am seeing patterns in things even more than usual. It is so glaring and obvious it is like it is hitting me in the face, like 'bam'. Light on surfaces, reflections, designs on furniture and so on. Also my super acute hearing and ability to feel vibrations is heightened more than usual. Is this normal and will it wear off?
Am I the only one to hate summer? Oddly, I feel at my worst during the long, hot, and humid days. The past three times that I was hospitalized were all over the summer. I feel myself wanting the darkness at 8:00 pm yet it's still light out. It is almost as if I have reverse seasonal affective disorder.
I'm scared the depression is coming back because I feel restless, frustrated, and angry....
I long for the days of autumn and winter. My own circadian rhythm prefers the shorter, colder days. I feel more alive and more hopeful. Why is this? Most folks feel glum when summer is over whereas I breathe a sigh of relief.
hereby I adress all aspies who read my thread:
I read that it is an asperger trait not to be able to hold long eye contact with other people.
How is it to look into your own eyes in the mirror. Can you do that for a long time? How you feel about it?
Could that be a feasable training method to make eye contact with other people endure longer?
I hope you don't find this question weird
I sometimes wonder why more girls (especially feminist girls) don't buy comics, especially due to the fact the whole reason the guy who invented Wonder Woman (Charles Moulton Marston) did so to help the feminist cause, which I write about in this post. He thought girls should have a strong woman to look up to the way boys idolized Superman, but it didn't seem to work.
This definitely confuses me, why feminists don't seem to like the female characters in comic books...and seem to feel they are demeaning to women.
Men might write these women...but if these Uber Women existed in real life...men would be scared shitless. Men are crazy afraid of attractive women who are intelligent, especially if they can fight.
I mean, most men (especially, NT misogynistic men) are intimidated by intelligence in women...period.
Couple that with attractiveness...
...and most can't handle it...
...compound it with a girl who can fight...and they're fully emasculated...
...if presented with said...
It's a bad idea. It doesn't matter their age, their location, their interests. 9 times out of 10, they really don't care about you. Why would they, they have some many men trying to talk to them. It's just the way it is. Don't make the same mistakes I have.
Do you guys have any tips on how to get women to approach me. Because I don't have guts to ever approach them myself, that part is non-negotiable. But I would love to hear some tips on how to improve my body language, the way I dress, and places I frequent, in order to get women to approach me.
As a background information, I am 36 years old. I USED to look younger than my age back in teens and 20-s. But for some reason as of now people don't seem to mistake my age by more than a couple of years which worries me. But perhaps it is something I can change like how I shave or what not. But in any case, I will never lie about my age that is out of question. All I am hoping for is for the girl to "know" I am 36 yet "still" being willing to date me because of the looks. I guess in looks part I am always disheaveled which is probably why I couldn't get girls before, and its too bad I realized the impact of being disheaveled that late in life. So I wish to put myself in order and get a...
