Unable to feel empathy for other people

I know others here have talked about intensely feeling other people's problems, but I wonder is there anyone else who feels the opposite. I can be very good at comforting someone when they are upset, but apart from that, I feel lost with it. It's like if they don't attach an emotion to it, then there's no way that I can. eg if they had a family member who was very sick, unless they provided ...

Episodes of delusional/paranoid thinking

Has anyone experienced this?

One example is I went through an episode earlier this year where I devalued my boyfriend and started having extremely paranoid thoughts about him. All of a sudden I was suspicious and thought he was a very scary and bad person. I was convinced that he was going to kill me or kill someone in my family. I had no legitimate reason to think this. He'd never indicated being violent. It ...

HFA and The Uncanny Valley

I just read a post on Slashdot claiming that the Uncanny Valley effect has finally been explained. The article proposes some rather obvious ideas. However, an Aspie posted a comment linking the uncanny valley to the perception of HFAs.

I had never made that link before, but it does go a long way in explaining the seemingly extreme reactions we experience - reactions that seem (to us) to be out of proportion to our behaviour.

Amy Winehouse

Does anybody think Amy's parents might have been Narcs? She suffered form insincerity, low self esteem, anorexia, bulimia, depression, self harm, and drug use.
She desperately wanted to be loved, desperately. She would cling on to the men in her life, including her adored father Mitch who was largely absent when she was young. A very dependent personality, lost, lonely and needy.
But why?
If shed had such a 'devoted' mother and father why was ...

I just realised something stupid I did while hypomanic

It just hit me today something stupid I did in April while I was in a hypomanic state.

I entered myself into a cycling marathon 94.7km (about 59mi) in length. :shock: And the race is in November!! :shock:
Just to put this into context, I haven't touched a bicycle since high school! Now I gotta start traing on a ...

Ring of Familiarity

Sound like anyone you know?

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/26/nyregion/a-revenge-plot-so-intricate-the-prosecutors-were-pawns.html?src=me&ref=general

This has a lot of similarity with my experience with the legal systems with my ex-wife. Intricate webs of deceit that I had to unravel rather than she had to prove.

Interesting the comments for the guy's mother.
