Asperger's shouldn't be thrown out as an explanation or excuse for any behavior unless one has been clinically diagnosed with it.

Drugs are (not always) the answer.

Why is it that whenever someone asks a question about psychological issues and says s/he doesn't want meds, all the pushers show up? Whenever it goes the other way, those who take meds attack whoever might suggest they aren't best. Is it too much to ask for the same respect you demand?

Don't Go Nuts

Yes, I know I have gone nuts on the Ronald Reagan thread. No I did not mean to. Yes I am calling myself out. Yes I have gone up on my meds. Yes the thread is too chatty. If Matt wants to pull the thread, he may.
You got a problem with that?

Mefi inserts itself into daily life

Trip Note #2 - Metafilter has inserted a new "mental discipline" into offline activities. On this trip to Europe, every time I speak with someone, read the foreign press, watch TV, etc, I often ask myself : how relevant would subject be in Metafilter's context, what would commentary thread look like. It certainly sharpens conversations. (I think Max Weber called it "unintended consequences of routinized social action") Weird symptom, or do others experience the same?
