Is it inappropriate on a social media (not a dating site) to tell a girl you chatted with that you have sexual fantasies about her because she's good looking? We never said anything sexual to each other, but I can't stop fantasizing about making out with her intensely and other sexual things.

I can drive (but not so well), but I don't because it's difficult for me with all the multitasking and paying attention to everything around you....nope, it's hell, unless I drive when there's almost no traffic. I still want to learn to drive better though, but it's bad for me and my parents don't s...

Trust me, unless a mental health professional is trained in diagnosing and recognizing autism and is good at it (which means they don't have a narrow, general or just stereotypical view of autism) they won't be able to recognize it in you if you're on the mild end of the spectrum! It's my experience...

Guys, it took hours for my hearing to get normal again. I'm hypersensitive to sounds. I felt like my hearing was impaired for a few hours. It always happens when I hear loud music like that (when other people do it). I just find it insane and rude because they didn't even ask others if the loudness ...

Your friends aren't being good friends -- they're being selfish jerks. I'm glad you took care of yourself. Thanks. Yep, I learned this the hard way. It's extremely important for people on the spectrum to figure out when they're pushing themselves to the limit, so they can take a break before trigge...

That said, ashbashbeard, congratulations. I do sincerely hope you'll be ok.
It's not a personal attack against you, but more like a rant because the title itself and the "using AS as an excuse" part was very triggering.

I did and do not give up, and never will. I struggled and managed to graduate, and will get a second degree, hopefully. But other people can't, because they need more help and support than I do and they're not getting it or have never gotten it for one reason or another. I'd never tell them they're ...

thumbhole, you're my new hero. I'm 8 years younger than you, but I'm already very pessimistic about my life. Right now I'm in the middle of a nervous breakdown, just because I've been outside with friends all day yesterday in a very chaotic environment, without breaks and then they tried pressuring ...

I noticed so many young NTs blasting loud music in their cars, on tv, on the radio, etc and feeling totally ok. When they do it around me though, my ears and head hurt and feel physical pain. I have sensory issues. Today my friend had super loud music in the car and I was in pain, but I tried to &qu...

I get the same comments. I try to explain this to people: one or two traits don't make you autistic, and yes, many people do a few things some autistic do, but what makes you autistic is a set of impairments in specific areas. You have to look at the general picture and draw your conclusions only wh...

What worries me now is that I slept and all but I still can't calm down. As I said I even smoked weed and while it was great at the beginning, the final part left me more tired than usual. Add this to sensory overload, being tired and lack of sleep and you have an explosive mix. If I'm still having ...

I stayed at home and it's the best decision I made. I was already snapping at them in the car before going home. I felt really close to getting physically violent. I have less energy to cope with sensory and social stuff lately. I don't know if this is the consequence of years trying to fit in or be...

I just hate the arrogance of people saying "but you're going to sleep for a few hours so there is no reason not to go out again". I hate whoever tells me what to do when they don't know s**t about my different way of existing in this world. I hate when people use manipulative tactics or tr...

Regardless of being NT or autistic, putting people down is something that's only done by insecure people who want to feel better and validate themselves at the expense of others. Confident people don't need to put anyone down to feel confident about themselves. Those who do it have a low self esteem...

So I've been out all day in an extremely chaotic atmosphere (celebration), traveling with friends with super loud music, too many people around and social interactions. These friends now told me they want to go out again in a few hours and I'm in the room crying and feeling in physical pain because ...

People will always have their opinions. It doesn't mean they're right. Social skills and communication for YOU might be useful to get your needs met and help you to be comfortable. It can be helpful for people to understand you on a deeper level, but this is not always possible. Sometimes it's best...
