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. The only two fields I have trained my mind to like are Cannabis and Music. I am 26 years old and just now going to college in the fall, for Cannabis Cultivation. Finally putting my life together. 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 ...

Unable to attain crafts

I am not sure if anyone suffers from this, but I find it that I am unable to understand the essence of topics, of things. It is not that I have dementia or an intellectual disability, but I am extremely detail-oriented, and I am never through things, I commence a lot of projects but never finish one of them, and I never attain a craft to which I had entailed myself to learn. I once ...

I just realized we really are d*ckheads sometimes

New here. So I just encountered another autistic person online and they showed behavior that made me realize why certain people have reacted to me in certain ways in the past. They were taking things too literally, were WAY too intense and negative just for the sake of being negative, but kept on, oblivious to the social cues I was dropping. Is there any way to reach through to a person like this? I know ...
