Do people with Aspergers grieve differently to others?

I've been told that my lack of grief may be the result of my Aspergers. I've had my grandmother die of old age, aunt of cancer. Also had a friend die by suicide. In all of these deaths, I felt shocked and sad, but never cried or felt devastated. I moved on quickly. My parents have always said that there must be something wrong with me in general because I don't show normal emotions and ...

Uncertain and in love

I'm not sure if this will fit in here, but I'll give it a try. A few months ago I met this guy who I ended up falling madly in love with, but the thing is, he lives on the other side of the country. Because of his work schedule and my studies, we haven't been able to see each other much, I've only been with him irl a few times and the last time ...

I would just like tojump into cold waters and ask youvguys for hints on how to get along better in everyday life. What did you change since you are aware of your condition?

What do I ...

On the brink of divorce

Let me introduce myself.

I am a 33 yo father of twins diagnosed with higher functioning autism. I went to a therapist to check if I had autism myself when my 4yo boy was diagnosed with autism and (suspecting) ADHD. My wife and I are together for 14 years and have been married for 4 years.

The last couple of years are rough since we have our twins. Especially with the special needs of our ...

I'm just flew into this,and boy are my arms tired.

Hi Group.
I'm recently self-diagnosed,and I've been having some difficulty incorporating Aspergers into my mindset.
I've always thought of myself as mainstream, but a bit different.
When my wife brought up the possibility that I had it, my reaction was as would be expected, but I went along and did the research, took the online questionnaires, and ultimately came up with the same conclusion.

Despite following the patterns that we all fall prey to, I ...

Autistic husband

So we have almost 4 year old twins. One has officially been diagnosed with autism and ADHD. My husband has autism too. He received his diagnosis a little over a year ago. He works full time as a software developer at 2 hours commute a day. So he's barely at home and hasn't had much chance to learn how to deal with our cannonball son (dad and son are total opposites) and the general noise ...

Zero Friends

I’m 25 and having a hard time caring enough to make friends. I went back to therapy at the beginning of the year and tried numerous times to make some connection, but I still don’t intuitively understand the appeal. This led to an ASD diagnosis but at first I was really afraid I might be Schizoid – so much so I posted on the Schizoid forum. I felt lost until my psych recently gave me ...

Asperger's, introversion or highly sensitive person?

I'm aware you can totally be an aspie who is also an introvert, but is there a way to know for sure?
