Hi, I’m new to the forum and want to know if there are any women here online (I’m a female professional in my early 40s). From reading some posts you are out there but kind of in the minority....I am hoping to seek diagnosis very soon and would appreciate knowing I’m not alone out here..! Thank you
Also high functioning but low nt performing
lol hopping skills? I'm looking for some deeper meaning but my literal brain just keeps coming up with hopping as in jumping on one leg LOL
Hoping and hopping at the same time can be disorienting
loooool can't recall the last time I hopped. Have been hopping mad a fair bit though :O Both diagnosis have/will give me so much relief. Have spent my whole life knowing I'm odd and different and also desperately trying to look people in the eye for as long as I could as my dad told me as a child it was a sign of a dishonest person :O Desperate not to be deceived as such a thing (which actually I'm not capable of) I've spent my life looking at the bridge of peoples noses so that they couldn't tell :O Have also referred to normal people as 'earthlings' and I see that you guys have got a different name for them! Neurotypicals! Love it!!
So. Are we aliens? Angels?
For a long while, as you saw... I myself (not my device!) experienced a System Freeze.
Error Report is this:
? Insufficient Data (ASD not entirely compatible with Non-Specific Humour)
? Clock Asynchronous (Please Update your software)
...Yet there are now others here, enough for distraction from myself. And so I now Post quite seriously... And I wonder... did you just get this picture from my Posting at you, Ma'am?
Have also tried for as long as I could to appear 'normal'. I can do it quite well but only for a limited time. I have got lots of 'acts' that I can pull out of the cupboard for various social situations. These 'acts' are essentially women that I have studied and copy when I need to. Again, can't keep them up for very long and I soon get sussed if I hang about too long :O As I've got older I've cared less and less about fitting in or appearing normal and so I think my Aspergers or whatever is, just now runs riot. I am married, have been married twice actually. My husband I think is probably also autistic because frankly anyone else probably wouldn't put up with me. I am def worse than him. How refreshing to be able to just say all of this stuff and no one will likely bat an eyelid !!
hmmm I don't know . . . I just know that I am not an earthling looooool
Also on my second marriage...both epically awful!
My first one was bad. This one has had it's moments. Nearly 10 years married now and I think we just now accept each others weirdness.
