Question about social-emotional reciprocity.

I understand most social cues, but I have severe problems with social-emotional reciprocity.

Why is only understanding social cues not enough?

I tend to show abnormal facial expressions to a mild degree and some abnormal body language as well. It takes a few minutes for people to find out that I have Autism Spectrum Disorder or odd.

Just diagnosed with ASD

I (21, white, born male) went in for a psychological evaluation a couple months ago. I just got the results, and I have been diagnosed with ASD, with specific vulnerabilities noted in my speeded processing, pragmatics & conversation skills, inferential language, and adaptive functioning.

After further conversation with the professional, one recommendation I received was to ...

I can only work in things I'm passionate about

If I try to do something like a restaurant job, or a hotel front desk job, I get so frustrated because I can't concentrate. I just blank out and can't get anything done.

It was tough living in ...

Neurodiversity and hypersexuality

I'm really hoping I can get some advice here because I'm approaching the end of my tether :-(

My partner is neurodiverse and in 95% of our marriage that's not a problem. I'm able to understand and support her. There's nothing I'd change about her there. The problem is her relationship with sex.

Right from the start of our relationship, we've had problems communicating in this area. ...

Is There a Test?

Both of my sisters and I think that I am on the spectrum. Mom, however, flatly denies it, stating how social I was as a baby.

There are more examples I can use. To list a few, I was toilet trained late, I spoke late (I assembled a simple radio kit before I learned to talk), I was constantly experimenting, connecting different speakers to get various tones and volumes, and I had no concept of ...
