I am not sure how to help because I have never used a phone as a stim. I stim in other more subtle ways.

Hopefully someone will see this and respond.

Nice.

I am waiting to be assessed. I know I have traits...

It is difficult to work out which parts of me are me and which are to do with autistic traits. It was a shock to find I have traits. Not sure if I am on the spectrum though. Wait and see...

I am odd because I don't feel like a child anymore, but I don't feel like an adult either? I feel like I am in my 20's somehow?

^^ Aluminum cans wouldn't last a day without a plastic liner to contain the colas. I keep my water in glass, and won't keep tomato-containing food in metal. The town water here is RO filtered, but I leave it in the sun for a while to get the chlorine out before I drink it. I have not noticed it on ...

Yes. The taste definately changes with the container it is in. Plastic is the most noticeable. Aluminium cans are also noticeable. Steel cans are not so noticeable because they have a protective coating but they do have a faint taste. I have not noticed a taste with glass though. Something I don't l...

I know what the OP feels. It is like treading water and going nowhere. No aim or direction... Drifting through life.
The last decade or so i have been like that and only now I am picking up something to be enthusiastic about with my hobby...

I would have avoided quite a few burnouts had I known, and I would have avoided being the underdog for so long. I just thought that life was supposed to be one where I was the lowest of the low even though I worked harder and had years more experience then the ones being promoted. I would have just ...

Hugging... I hated hugs. My grandmother (Dads Mum) would try to hug me and squeeze me and I would be in a sudden panic trying to get free. She would also insist on kissing me and I would do anything to avoid it. I found it soo claustrophobic and I would get sudden hot itchy skin when I panicked maki...

Unexpected decision changes can trigger meltdowns... I get shutdowns due to this. Also certain smells trigger shutdowns for me as well. Meltdowns and shutdowns are very similar as they have the same cause, but while meltdowns are displayed outwardly, shutdowns are inwardly displayed and more hidden ...
