I just wanted to ask if anyone else has this issue? I wouldn't say that I exactly have any speech processing difficulties (I mean, I struggle to hear words from background noise but only in a particularly noisey environment or when there are a lot of people talking at the same time) but I generally find that I can't hear the words to songs. To me they just sound like random mubblings most of the time. It's worse in songs with backing singers, harmony singers (i.e. duets) and loud instruments, but most songs are like that for me actually. (In some ways I actually prefer it like that because I can appreciate the sounds of the music and the singer's experssion without being distracted by what they are singing - when I do find the words for songs I usually don't like them anyway, or think that they are inappropriate.) I generally find that the only group where I can make out a word or two is ABBA and I would guess that that is becuase they are not native English speakers (I know that that sounds a bit contradictory - as in how would a non-native English speaker sing clearer? - but I'm thinking that it could actually be that they are more aware of correct pronunciation and so their words come out clearer than those of other singers) but it's still not perfect - like that line in "Ring Ring" where they sing "Here I sit all alone impatiently./nWon't you please understand you're mocking me." but I always used to mishear it as "making me" LOL!!! "What the heck does that even mean???" I used to wonder. Or sometimes I thought that they never finished the line (as in "what are they making her?" - like "Won't you please understand you're making me [upset/anxious/worried/etc.]?" but there were no such words at the end.) Anyway I'm wondering if others also have this issue, and I find it particularly strange that I have that even though I don't really have any speech processing difficulties. Another probably unrelated thing (and I think that this one probably has to do with literal interpretation of things) is that when I was asked to sing a given song I would generally try to imitate the rythem and the guitar as well as the melody line (with no words of course!) - which of course I found rather difficult LOL!!! Anyway I'm just wondering if anyone else has either of these issues... Thanks, invisible
RiRi posted a topic in Symptoms & DiagnosisI found out through this movie called Dear John. In the movie, the main character's father has AS. I had heard of Autism before, but I didn't really understood it. I didn't know there was a milder version of it either. The way it was defined mainly was broad and one of the main things was "not making eye contact." I didn't connect Autism back to me before because I'm pretty good with eye contact and overall was social. When I first started researching Autism, I came across Aspergers, but the way it was defined in wikipedia didn't really describe or make sense to me. It wasn't until I researched further and read different stories of girls with it that I finally diagnosed myself with Aspergers. How did you find out?
Which symptoms (or traits) of Asperger's Syndrome do you struggle with the most? For me, it's not being able to understand certain instructions, and not being able to understand humor, they really affect my interactions with people and make me feel insecure, because of this, I'm never fully sure what I'm meant to say, or how to reply to things, and is just really awkward
