    Hey I am starting to see a trend of all of us who are autistic so..why not talk about it here?

    Which are you?
    Any strengths or weaknesses?
    Which is helpful to you? Which isn't helpful? Are you proud to be autistic or an aspie?

    the first one.


    weaknesses: independence, social interaction offline in all areas, relationships and intelligence

    strengths: uh.......


    I guess the advantages are people leave me alone, im automatically exiled people dont have to learn about me first. however the big disadvantage is i am the PERFECT material for someone who wants to kill a person, ill fall for any lie and wont be able to see 99% of signs they are going to kill me.

    Yes you do. You just don't realise your potential and your ability to grow. You gotta believe in yourself.

    My greatest weakness is any sort of physical contact. It’s easier if I am touching someone I know and trust, but can still be awkward. If it is someone I distrust, it can seem like a less painful form of torture. Fortunately, doctors do not seem to make me feel this way. Neutral is my obsessive self control, which can also be a weakness, where I stay away from people because I am attracted to them. My strength is my honesty, I will tell someone how I feel about them, even if it hurts.
    I am not observant of others, but I learned the hard way to sometimes defer judgment to A friend.

    I once had a therapist very briefly speculate about it as a possibility, at the end of the session she gave me a bunch of leaflets and one of them was about managing and recognising anxiety in autistic individuals. She told me not to worry about it, and that she just thought because it had been mentioned in the session then it may be of interest to me.

    There were also a couple of leaflets on managing regular anxiety. I don't think I'm autistic since I'd say that I function fairly well in social situations for the most part. So the fact she even brought it up was a bit of a surprise really.

    Well whatever you feel sometimes is better than what a therapist says Canter.

    I've recently started to suspect that I might have a mild form of Asperger's. I had to do some research into the condition for a class project and I found that when I was younger I did some of the stimming behaviors like hand-flapping and rocking. As I got older I became more aware of those behaviors and trained myself to not do them as they led to people thinking I was weird. I don't do the hand-flapping anymore but will still rock a little when I'm excited.

    I have ASD, Its mild, Im low on the spectrum and Im (extremely) high functioning but it still has some inconveniences.

    I am good at planning, and making these elaborate things in my head, some people say Im really creative.
    Im also very good at math and science. When communication is direct and clear with set rules, I can be incredibly good at making plans in my head.

    Some weaknesses I have are mainly social, I have this prompt of how to talk to a person that comes up really often when Im panicking, Im trying to remove this habit but I think its something with "repetitive behavior" basically I say "Hi what have you been doing" whenever prompted with a social interaction. I also seem to want to research things extensively and wont stop until I completely understand it.

    Its sorta wierd but you know
