Sometimes I can't communicate what I mean to say so I don't. It's a feeling of just not knowing how to even say what I'm thinking. Sometimes I don't respond appropriately to people. I mumble a lot and people think I'm being disrespectful. It's difficult for me to talk clearly sometimes. I laugh when...

I love watching Austin City Limits. It combines multiple special interests for me, music appreciation as well as Retro TV. Willie Nelson's performances are Iconic. He was the first artist on there I believe. Neil Young is great on there as well. I also really liked Todd Snider's. John Prine and Guy ...

I don't work but everyone else does that I know. I just spend most of my time at home. I make people feel uncomfortable as well. My sister and her friends don't want me around when they are in the living room or on the porch. Those are two of the places I like to be. They don't like my energy. I fee...

I quit my medication. I didn't think I needed it. I thought I was doing well. I stopped getting dressed and wore the same clothes for days. I couldn't get out of bed for a whole day. I tried to start my own religion again. I started thinking I was famous and that I needed to go to Alaska. I stopped ...

It's extremely frustrating. I have to take meds twice a day. I've even been asked if an injection would work better. I don't need an Injection. I take them now so I can avoid that. I know if I ever move out, I'm quitting them. People think that's an awful idea and that I'm gonna have a breakdown if ...

I'm back on my medication because my parents and Psychiatrist want me to be. I just never know if it's working. It's the same for now because I hadn't been taking them consistently. The last time it got upped. I'm on Abilify and Buspirone. My family notices a difference when I'm on them but I'm not ...

Yet sometimes I experience it where im under stimulated and I look at a bright light and spin. I go between being over stimulate...

I stim quite frequently. I like to rock back and forth, pace, spin, write with my fingers and chew on things. I also flap my hands. I also will stare at lights and spinning objects. I have a lot of interests that I've been obsessed with and know a lot about. I struggle with understanding my emotions...

Thank you so much for posting this! It's probably more than just autism that has led you to be so unconventional in how you interface with reality, and if you're like me you might have some cocktail of comorbidities. I was just having deja vu in responding to a post a few moments ago. And yes, some...
