Do any of you have trouble spending time with your family or friends?

Curious as always :D,

I can see my friends during school, but I absolutely detest seeing them outside of school for some reason (except on my birthday and Halloween). The weird thing is, I love spending time and talking with them. I think it is because school is more structured and classes give me a break from socializing, so I completely enjoy being there and it is easier for me.

As for family, I am never in my room except when I am sleeping :lol: . I prefer to be around my mom and little sister, but I can enjoy being around all my family members.

:D

I rarely see my family, they live too far away. I like spending time with my friends, but get drained after a while.

My extended family, I see a few times a year. I walk in, drink tea and leave 30 minutes if I can get away with it, and an hour if I can't. My sister has just tried to arrange another family get together, no chance. I love my children, of course, I do, I just find talking to them difficult sometimes, I just run out of things to talk about and I become a bore and then I just want to be on my own (this is when I find being autistic is just a little... I could do without it)

I have my sister in law coming this weekend, tomorrow as it happens and there is no way out. I will try to spend as little time with her as I can and try to keep busy. She does not know I am on the spectrum and I am not going to tell her so I am going to be polite, keep my mouth shut and keep out of the way as much as is humanly possible. Anyone coming to the house is my greatest nightmare, I hate it, hate it, hate it. I would rather go to someone else's house where I have some control, after all, I can leave when I want too.

I may have been in shock more or less constantly until I tried living alone. My family was like four strangers living together, except the two NTs (dad and sis) seemed to have something in common. Now, I have one friend I can spend lots of time with, although we rarely do. For all others, averaging over an hour a day ruins my sleep and my days. If there is any conflict to resolve, just minutes will do it.

Wow that's me 8O . I hate having people over! My house is like my safe zone, not a place where I have to talk to people when I don't want to.

Yeah, I am like that too, I don't like having people over usually, but sometimes I do like it because I get tired of it just being my family in the house.

I have a "traffic light" at my door, to indicate when I'm available. If you knock on red, you don't get to come back even on green.

YES. I don't have friends, but I find it increasingly extremely difficult to be around my relatives. It's just demand demand demand. Even their presence is demanding.
