Hi! Please help me out with this! [26 Apr 2010|10:52pm]

Hi! I'm doing a short survey on Face and Politeness for college, and I would like people from (hopefully) around the world to answer it, to see what is considered polite and/or impolite in different cultures. Please help me out with this, it's really short.

This is the link: Survey on Face and Politeness

Thank you very much!

hello,

i wanted to share some of my experiences with asperger's. it has all happened so quickly that it's a little overwhelming, yet amusing at the same time. the other day i was browsing wikipedia in the morning before going to work and hit 'random article'. i noticed that the first three articles were very short ones on people and then the next was 'refrigerator mother'. "hmm, interesting," i thought. while reading i noticed a reference to autism's "high-intellect variant, Asperger's Syndrome" and tagged that to check out.

upon reading for a few minutes i nearly stopped breathing. i've known since i was 16 (i'm 22 currently) that i am bipolar, but haven't been diagnosed and have mostly adjusted to it. but, as other people have described, reading about the traits associated with AS has been like reading a description of myself. i understand why my family tell me stories about lining up everyone's shoes and unscrewing my bottles to dump out the milk when i was a baby. i realize why my roomate gets frustrated at me repeating her words, why i have words and music flowing through my head all the time, why i have a thousand names for our cats, names that keep repeating and slowly changing, why i like post-rock music and stereolab, why i listen to music and sing every day, all the time if possible (i'll put on music when i'm going to bed), why i have a horrible short term memory but get yelled at for dredging up events from years ago that other people have forgotten, why i say hello to people and immediately look away, why i have to remember to make eye contact (and seldom do), why i curl up in weird positions, twitch stim and jump around, why i accumulate piles of information that i spend hours sorting through, why despite being a hot independent minded faggot the longest relationship i've been in was four months long and the relationships i've wanted the most fell apart before they began, why i avoid certain large group situations.

i'm not sure what i'm to do. it's been four days and i'm still adjusting to the idea. i know that i have to tell some people, but it will be very difficult. (i have told a 7504 km away friend via email)

that cloud looks like ireland. =p

i'm happy nonetheless. i'm sorry if this post appears like i'm just venting. i am.

Out of curiosity - how do people usually react when you admit you have Asperger's Syndrome?

I get these responses:
1. "What's Asperger's Syndrome?"
2. "No you don't!"
3. "Really? I never would've known!"
4. "Ah ha. I always thought you were a little different, in a different kind of way."

Around those four. I've never gotten a really negative response. What about you dudes?

My mother once told me that having weak fingers/hands was characteristic of AS peoples. Is this true, or was she making it up to make me feel better about the fact that I can't open a pudding container with just my fingers?

Reviewing majors for college, I came upon a wicked idea.

An Aspie majoring in phsychology. Or even better - sociology.

And wouldn't it be fucking hilarious if I got a degree in either one?

Thankyou [24 Dec 2005|01:46am]

I am posting here for the first time, and would like to say thankyou!

I am 19, and have only had a diagnosis of Aspergers for little over a year. I am at University, living away from home, and things are tougher than they have ever been.

Where I used to think that I was just 'the same' as everyone else, I am now more and more finding myself deficient in day-to-day tasks and situations.

I am very intelegent but constantly under-perform and frustrate myself. I also use the label I now have as an excuse too often.

Reading back a little in this group made me smile - you would not believe how refreshing and comforting it is to hear other people say the same things.

Hi,
I am posting here because I have a question about (what may be) an aspie-related behavior in someone I care about, and I was wondering if anyone here had any advice/insights/ or experiences. This person I'm friends with will not shower. Or, he says he does, but it smells like he doesn't, his teeth are grimy, et cetera. On the one hand, I respect that it is his choice, but it makes him difficult to be around, and other people are not understanding...and i can see why, the smell is untolerable at times. He gets very sensitive/agitated when the issue is brought up...and says he doesn't know why it's such an issue. Has anyone ever gone through the same thing?

Edit: this person has been diagnosed with asperger's, as well as depression.

Thanks!

Double the trouble. [11 Aug 2005|01:31pm]

Might as well say it before I start getting incoherent. I am a fifteen year old girl with the strangest combination of mental disorders imaginable. I have severe problems with anger management, Asperger's syndrome, and have suffered hallucinations ('night terrors') several times throughout life. My psychiatrist is forever lying to me, as do my parents. They give me pills which stop my old hallucinations and panic attacks, yet insist that it's a minimal dose of generic Prozac. Riiight. Personally, I think it's the very beginning of schizophrenia, but no one believes little ole me.

I was always an aspie. My old elementary school teachers were convinced I was either retarded or demonically possessed, since I spoke only random words in Spanish or English in no particular order, could not socialize even if forced to, and had about the motor ability of a blind, three-legged dog. And I remember them forever trying to get rid of me, send me to an institution.

The violence began after years of being ridiculed as a 'stupid spic' or 'retard' by my classmates. Around the age of eight, I snapped out of my aspie daze and started getting downright, dang-nasty evil. I was biting, kicking, scratching people until I saw blood, purposely urinating on floors... It all culminated with a hit list at the age of nine. Had my family owned a gun, I would've killed them all.

But now I'm coherent enough to realizing that killing people will get me into serious trouble. And now, after all that rambling, I'd like to ask if any other aspies experience the above mentioned problems. Or if any of you guys have multiple issues. If not, well, that would make me the strangest among the strange.

Hello everyone! My name is Nicole and I decided to join this group because I want to be able to understand Aspergers Syndrome more. I want to try to see things from the point of view of those who have Aspergers. I personally do not have Aspergers Syndrome but it certainly affects my life. My little brother is 15 years old and we have known that he has had this since he was about seven years old, but my family didn't really take it seriously and didn't think it was that big of a deal. He was a good kid, he was smart, that could get him anywhere right? The last two years have been really hard on my brother. Ever since he decided that being social was important and something he really wants to do he has had this "world is out to get me" attitude. I could see why he would feel that way. Sometimes I even felt that way when I attended his high school (I'm in college). My little brother attends a school that is composed of nothing but cliques. There are about 450 kids in four grades. It's a little country school where everyone remembers everything that you've done since Kindergarten. It's just difficult to see my little brother go through something that is as totally unfair as this. I want to learn how to be the most supportive big sister I can. It's hard though when I don't know what to do for him. I love him and he's able to talk to me when he feels like it. I'm the person he confides in, he doesn't like my parents at all right now. Do you have any ideas about support and how a person can support you the best? When do you feel most supported? Thanks for letting me join your community and be able to learn more about what it's like to live with Aspergers Syndrome.

Something I've realized... [27 Jul 2005|09:00pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

I've been thinking for a while that perhaps I'm not as...functional...as I thought I might be. Before I found out what Asperger's syndrome was, I didn't think there might be anything different or whatever about me. But now I'm not so certain. It feels rather as though I'm...deficient in some areas that I thought I was okay in. I remember distinctly thinking once that I would need someone to help me take care of myself when I get older because I might not be able to do it myself. This is probably self-destructive thinking, but every time I screw up in some way--usually in some social situation--I start thinking that perhaps I won't be a well-adjusted and able adult when I get out on my own. This frightens me and I wondered if anyone else here has these sorts of thoughts.

I read recently that since Asps have such trouble expressing themselves, they are often bad actors.

What idiot wrote that? They've obviuosly never seen me act! (winks).

Anyone find this true or incredibly, incredibly false?
