I feel very much the same way as you seem to when I do anything from a trip to the grocery store, to a visit with a friend, to a shift at work. I have not tried any medication because I also blame it on stress, or "overload", or "test fatigue" as I often compare it to. However, I...

Intense stress at work is common in us compared to those without ASD. Crying can be one reaction to stress. It sounds like your tears were triggered by an emotional response, but stress could have played a role in making you more susceptible to it.

Just be yourself unless you're either trying to date someone, or trying to get a job. In which case, no one is themselves. Generally speaking, you don't need to impress anyone.

You'll never become NT, so you'll always keep your diagnosis. so then why do they lose it sometimes? still confused a bit Again they is unclear. You're probably refe...

I hate talking to people on the phone at all, with the exception of immediate family. It makes me anxious, especially when I don't know when they'll call, but even if I do its still almost as bad. It feels like someone has pushed me to the edge of a cliff and said either, "at some random time ...
