  1. We obviously aren't seeing eye to eye on this. I apologize for my part, and let's move on.
  2. It may not have been intentional, but you certainly ended up being rude. You never accepted that I wasn't talking specifically about autism, and it was more about behavior, and have unwilling to change your perception- no matter how many ways that I told you. To be blunt, your initial assumption that I implied everybody had autism was almost the exact opposite of what I really said. No matter how I hard I've tried to explain that misconception to you haven't let your initial assumption go. So, no I'm not implying that everybody has autism, and I've never had anybody else who I shared this theory with has ever thought that. In fact, the theory has nothing to do with autism. The theory is that the polar opposite of an autistic person is not the normal functioning person, and those people on that side (I would use spectrum- but your assumptions won't allow me to use) also have difficulty functioning as a social being. In no way does that imply that everybody has autism, and you can either accept my explanation or let it go.
  3. I really wish you were able to express yourself a little better because it can be a fascinating conversation, but given that you just told me to go see a psychiatrist puts an end to this part of the conversation. Thanks for your contribution, but I respectfully disagree with your analysis.
  4. Do you realize that it has nothing to do with diagnosing? It is more about finding an understanding what is happening in all of our brains, and not just those that could be considered autistic.
  5. It's not worth getting into a professional argument but how does that developmental disorder manifest itself? And, we really don't have much of an understanding of autism at all in general, it The big idea is that if there are autistic people, there are people who are exactly opposite. However, that doesn't mean everything is super-easy for them either. They have social factors that manifest themselves in a variety of mental health issues. I've tried to explain that I'm looking at this with a broader stroke, and the spectrum that I'm talking about is much broader than the one you want to look at. At this point, it appears to be a choice and you're more concerned with arguing with me than actually trying to understand the hypothesis. Fine, it's not worth trying to convince you if you don't want to understand what I"m talking about in the first place. It's just a hypothesis that I use to help me get a better understanding of the issues that people face, I've shared with other professionals, who think that there is some merit to it, but I'm not the person who would do the scientific study to prove. If you go on to get your PHD, and specialize in research- go at it. Mind you the people doing the research aren't on the front line working with individuals on a daily basis, which is what I do. On that level we are much more focused on what to do on a day to day basis.
  6. In reality, I don't even know how you could even go about creating the scale. It's not like there is a blood test that you take and somebody test's positive for autism. It subject to interpretation, and the tests rely on the responses from the subject. It's difficult to be truly scientific because it's difficult to truly understand how we are thinking and all the inputs that we have going on in a single moment.
  7. You're stuck because you seem to be reading it as though everybody has some bit of autism. It also seems that you're getting stuck on the introvert vs. extrovert, which has nothing to do with spectrum disorders. Spectrum disorders have nothing to do with being an introverted. I've known many who are extroverted. In reality, it's more of a communication disorder. An autistic person is not able to pick up on the social information that is all around them, and have triggers that cause meltdowns. For HFA's, they have to deal with those triggers. My theory would include people on the other end of the spectrum. In that case, they get so much input that they have to learn how to moderate that input. Think of it like a rainbow, or the visible spectrum. The one end is the violet, and reaching down to ultra-violet. On the other end, we reach up to the infra-red side. But instead of being stratified like a rainbow, people tend to fall in the middle (yellow, green, blue) and the dispersion follows a bell curve.
  8. I think you misread my theory. It's not that everybody is autistic, or what we would consider autistic. The people we consider as autistic rest on the extreme end of the scale. The people we on the other end of the scale are at the opposite of things. I don't mean in Kristin Chenoweth sort of way. A guy like Robin Williams would be an example of the other extreme. He got so many social cues that his brain couldn't handle all of it. It helped him become a genius comedian, but he had addiction issues and huge depression problems. I know I use diapers to cope with anxiety. I have a very good who clearly has the same types of issues, but he smokes pots. He is probably more towards the HFA side of the spectrum As an adult, I've successfully maintained numerous friendships, and have zero issues with social anxiety (I adore small talk). At the same token, I require a lot of time by myself. I think I get a lot of social cues and it can become overwhelming. I seriously doubt my good friends suspect that I choose to wear diaper, but it's my crutch to keep me sane.
  9. I have some professional experience working with Aspergers, or High Functioning Autism, and have developed a theory that i've shared, but have yet to prove. My theory is that every single individual falls somewhere on the spectrum, and there is factor that we could assign to everybody. A person who falls at the exact norm would be a 50, and the non-verbal autistics would be close to 0. My theory that those of us on both extremes of the functions have obstacles that affect our social functioning. I think I'm closer to an 85 or 90 on that scale, which could explain my need to shut down from social life for some periods, and desire to put diapers on.
  10. Welcome. I hope you find a home here.
  11. Necessity of Diapers

    I've wondered about your physical need because the way you describe your diaper use played a big role in my ultimate acceptance of diapers in my life. in my case- I don't use diapers all the time, but if I don't I'm keenly aware of the lack of diapers. it's unlikely that I would have an accident, but I'm also running to the toilet. Ironically, I try not to play golf in diapers, because I chafe when I do.
  12. Another Wal-Mart sighting

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I find nothing cute about. It's a lady with pull up over her pants. If I saw that with a friend at Walmart who didnt' know about this part of me, that would not be the point I'd ever choose to share. I'm more embarrassed for her than I am for anything else. She doesn't represent me in the least.
  13. Another Wal-Mart sighting

    I'm not sure if it gives any of us a bad name., I'm not offended by it.
  14. wearing A long time

    I've never been one who has been able or tempted to wear the same diaper for much more than 12 hours. My diaper is usually wet, but not completely wet when I wake up, and I typically keep the same diaper on till about noon. I work at home, so I don't need to change out of my night diaper till I'm ready. Depending on what time I go to bed and finally take it off- it can go 10 hours to 12 hours. But rarely more than that. During the day, I might get 8 hours, but by then the diaper is soaked and just doesn't feel good anymore.
  15. Die Sitter! Die

    As a short-horror movie, it's decent. Horror is not my favorite genre and this adds in excessive violence that pays homage to the classic slasher films. The villain is scary, but it's almost the antithesis of an adult baby. The adult baby is all about giving up control, and he is so violent.
