I’ve noticed with social media(Facebook) I get sensory over load. Within a few minutes of being on it I feel fatigued, anxious. It also happens when I’m not interacting with people much. Does anyone else feel like this? What is it about social media that does this?

IMO it’s a myth that people with an ASD don’t like fiction. There may be a statistical leaning towards this, but I know several with an ASD who like fiction.

Any time I watch a film I struggle understanding what's going on, the plots and sub plots usually a hard for me to pick up on. Does anyone else have this problem? Why is this? Is it a ASD thing?
